@ Sandkerwa. Ceramic mug. Looks golden. Herbal hop aroma with light malt underpinning. Very herbal, earthy, mushroomy example with rich pale malts that nonetheless remain in the background.

The color is beautiful, warm golden and the head is dense and creamy. The aroma has notes of hops. Light fruit and flower and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of slightly dry citrus, flower and malt. The overall impression is pleasant, full and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Barely honeyed malts and subtle hopping are found in this brew’s ever-so-soft mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the hazy blond.
-This definitely lacks the bite I like in German Pilseners.
-The water in this one is as soft as can be. A bit like Roppelt’s or Lieberth’s. Unfortunately, the lacks of hop presence makes this Pils very watery.
-Hebendanz brews are all about mouthfeel, and this one is no exception.
-Carbonation is as low as most gravity-served Kellerbiers.
