Thanks to Tooch4321 for this one in trade. Pours opaque gold with a white head. Nose is corn/ sweetness, slight lager yeast, and sweetness finishing with mild hops. Flavor is similar with corn/ sweetness and yeast. Flavor is mellow as hell, medium-bodied, and very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of markwise. Pours clear gold with bright white head. The aroma is fresh and grainy as well as sending out soft notes of spicy hops and a touch of yeastiness. The taste is rich yummy and in my opinion right where a solid Pilsner should be with a seemless mix of sweet tangerine like hoppiness, some spicy hops and floral hops as well as fresh graininess and a mild note of acidic lemon cutting in there too. Solid easy drinkin’ brew.

500 mL bottle from Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Pours pale yellow with a thin head of white lace. Aroma of sweet pilsener malts with hints of grass and earth. Great example of a well done pilsener even if it’s not my favorite style of beer.

Bottle. Gold with a white head and a mild white lacing. Really fresh grains, bread and honey notes. Fresh hop tones so crisp so clean, no astringency at all. Fantastic, for everything its not!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. I wish I got to try this earlier, but I’m still happy that I found a bottle. Pours a rich golden, clear, with a sticky sudsy white head. Aroma is quite grassy, very light malty sweetness, clean and simple. Flavor follows, very bready, grassy, light sweetness that might just be a touch too tangy, especially on the finish. Reminds me a lot of Weihenstephaner Original, quite bready and crisp. Medium/light bodied, just a touch glassy thick with ample lively fluffy and sizzling carbonation. A few flaws come out as it warms, but it also becomes more tasty, metallic, tangy, sour, alcohol. Very easy drinking, this was probably phenomenal fresh... o please make this all the time... gah

Floral aroma, somewhat of a barnyard scent. Pours pale straw color with a frothy white head. Slight bitter taste. Light and refreshing in taste. Minimal carbonation. I think this tasted better a few months ago, but still good today.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice clear yellowish pour with some big bubbly head. Crisp and refreshing - some slightly floral notes come through on the nose and in the flavor - they match up pretty well, but there is a bit of a dry slightly bitter finish.
Very nice and flavorful for a lager and amazingly drinkable. I would definitely try this one again...

light body, average carbonation, bitter. Floral aroma leads to a solid not spectacular lager.
