Appearance:
Light golden color, clear. Lots of small carbonation rising up. Small frothy head.

Aroma:
Biscuit malts, herbal hops, very crisp.

Taste:
Very rich, biscuity, pale malts, a little honey. Hop bitterness is medium, mainly spicy-herbal, just a little lemony. Finish is dry-bitter, yet very crisp. Body is light, very crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, good amount of fizzy carbonation.

Overall:
Outstanding beer.

Pours a clear straw gold yellow

Honestly I had higher expectations for thus beer. Looking for a easily accessible, seasonable pilsner with some pleasing grassy characteristics.

What I got smelled of corn and cereal although it had no reason to do so, with a rounded flavor and sweetness emphasizing more of the same. I wasn't expecting greatness but I had been hoping for a little more spark and life from this one. Wondering if the hops have faded, or it’s normally this way. Meh.
