Hay nose. Crystal clear yellow, enormous head, fair lace. Malty and grassy but the malt seems to dominate. Light body, prickly. Pretty nice north german style pils. Could use a bit more intensity.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow pour. Herbal, somewhat saccharine nose; mint, lemon oil, white sugar. It lacks a rustic quality. Metallic notes blend with citrus oils to create an unpleasant tanginess.
The flavor is wrapped up nicely in grasses and and a pillowy chamomile note, though there is little to be said for malt foundation here. The finish offers a dry apricot skin and pith flavor with minimal length.
The body is light and crisp, while the perceived lack of malt balance gives it an intangible looseness. While pleasant enough to drink, there’s just so little pils flavor here.
