I think I like American style Pilsner like this better than European ones (Blasphemy!). Dark yellow, big white head. Plenty of hops in the nose and a crisp, authoritative finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gorgeous color of peach nectar--slightly hazy with wonderful cratered head that had peaks like an Alaskan ice floe. Aroma is of young fresh hops and very slight yeastiness--interesting but almost strident. This is aggressively hopped for a pilsener, but has plenty of body beneath the assertive top-end. I only wish the malt provided more of a flavor counterpoint to the prevailing bitterness. The finish is quite clean, mildly dry and with Saaz spice hints. An interesting beer with unusual characteristics for a pilsener. If the flavor balance were a bit more malt-biased, this would be a top contender.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fuller in appearance than most pilseners--tangerine in color and well carbonated. The aroma is rather skunky, though after some time, spicing is more detectable. This is a moderately complex pilsner with some piny/hoppy components. Fairly smooth with some positive qualities, but the smell detracts from the experience.

Aggressively bitter. Interesting citrus taste, from continental hops? Sure, what the hell.
