Pours a very light straw colour, completely transparent with a foamy white head.

The smell is heavy grass with a little bit of biscuit.

The taste is light, grassy, a little bitterness. Very tasty.

The mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation.

A very good pilsner, light and grassy.

12oz bottle. 7/21/16 bb date. Appearance: As pale yellow as it gets, crystal clear, with a light fluffy white head Aroma: Herbal and spicy Saaz hops with a touch of bready malt. Taste: Soft, lightly bready and caramel malt with a fairly strong diacetyl butter, giving way to a strong herbal and spicy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a moderately high carbonation. Finish: Dry, sticky on the palate, with lingering herbal hoppiness Overall: It’s almost like drinking a slightly lighter Pilsner Urquell. Definitely has the soft bready and caramel malty profile, with a slightly stronger diacetyl note, and a bright, sharp bitterness that balances it all out. Beautiful beer

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass best by on the 10/24/16. Pours a nice straw yellow with a 2 finger fluffy white head that leaves a nice ring of lace.

Smell is bready, biscuit, lemon, and some pine.

Taste follows bready and biscuit followed by lemon and pine.

Mouthfeel is less than medium but not light, plenty of life, maybe a little dry, and excellent drinkability.

Overall this is what you expect, a very nice pilsner.
