It’s not a special beer. Floral. Just looking good, but the taste is just a another pilsener.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruity nose for a helles, clear gold color, spongy head. Sweetish malt front with a hint of apples. Much less bitter than a pils, so it really wasn’t balanced for my palate. Full body, though, but this needs more bitter for sure. OK beer, though too exciting.

Its mouth feel is initially smooth mild malty with a lingering thick palate and a crisp clean smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy notes. A very average brew.
