look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very sudsy. Has the soapy look that a good pilsener tends to have, including a decent body.

Smell: Lemon soap. Lots of minerals.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Tastes like it smells. Pretty solid lemon flavor, but I wish the hops were a bit more upfront. Could use some floral notes to balance. Superbly crisp.

Overall Drinkability: One of the better commercial European pilseners.

(Served in a footed strange)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a swirling microcarbonation and a creamy antique white head that takes up half the glass.

S- The clean aroma has some touches of green sulfur and a pils malt note that comes through as it opens up.

T- The green slightly dry hop taste has a slightly sweet sulfur note in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a slight creamy texture as long as the head last.

O- The nice clean character has just a touch of sweetness which compliments the pils malt and a hint of hops. There are no off flavors and everything is balance making this very easy to drink.

Poured into a glass goblet.

Light yellow and crystal clear with a small head. It looks like there’s a lot of carbonation being released. No lacing at all and only a very slight retention of the head. The aroma is of crackery malt and a little orange peel. Light, crisp and refreshing as I drink. Very slight bitterness and slight pungent hop characteristic to it as well. The mouthfeel is pretty decent with good carbonation. Overall, this is an enjoyable pilsner but nothing about it stands out.
