look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a clear yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with little lacing.

S: pilsner and crystal malts with biscuits and slightly bitter hop notes.

T: similar to the aroma, though a bit more bitter with pinky hop notes and less biscuity flavor.

M: light body with highish carbonation, this beer is nice, dry, and crisp.

O: a solid beer overall, though I'd like a bit more depth.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle in pint glass
bottled 4/26/12

A: Very pale yellow with a thin white head, only a small amount of lacing.
S: Slightly grainy, a hint of grass, not much in the way of hops
T: A sharp bitterness that lingers a bit, grainy taste, almost husky, makes me think 2-row vs. pils malt. It has a nice Saaz spicy bite to it.
M: Very crisp, tingly carbonation,
O: A very good german pils, I would like a little more hop flavor, but this is very true to style. An excellent summer beer. I would be very happy to see this in KY especially because the alcohol level makes it easy to have another one.
