Clear pale yellow, foamy white head. Fresh aroma of grain, pale malts and light grassy hops. Citrusy malty taste, medium hopped, average carbs. Crisp clean hoppy finish. I wish more craft brewers made good classic German pilseners like this! LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

650ml, pours crystal golden color with fantastic cascading bubbles giving a champagne type appearance. Aroma gives you that farm fresh feeling with dry malt and earthy hop fragrance. Tastes balanced, not to sweet, not to dry. with a very nice mouthfeel from the heavy carbonation. Good drinking pils.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am impressed. Pilsner is generally not my favorite beer but this was really something enjoyable. Aroma is light with earthy to floral hop notes. The beer pours a just-have light straw yellow with a persistent film of white foam. Taste is quick hit of bitterness up front that drops to a biscuit malt character that lingers. Very clean. Modest carbonation and fairly dry. Very refreshing.

Very good beer. Easy to drink. Good representation of a pilsner. Not over hopped or carbonated. Smooth and refreshing. Makes me wish I had bought a few of these.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really pale yellow color, watery looking, smallish head but good lacing. Really nice aroma of funky, grassy hops. It’s got a lot of sweet pilsner malt flavor and a ton of grassy funk. Very mild bitterness, though. Good, but not quite as good as SA Noble.

Small white head, yellow as coffee piss. Sweet citrus and light breadiness. Tastes like carbonated lemonade, but drier. Wheaty? Tastes unfiltered, bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 650ml bottle. Pours pale lemon with very gentle bubbles and a good sized head. The nose has sweetcorn and green beans. The taste has bitter salad leaves - very interesting. The palate initially has a light structure but this develops into a medium creamy texture and then there is a dry refreshing finish. Overall, this is better than the sum of its parts. The severe bitterness definitely grows on me.

On tap in a shaker. Pours deep golden with a thin head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, and some floral hops. Flavor not much different. Average texture. A decent beer.

I think this beer was exposed to the light before it got to me because it was "skunked". Being a dark beer lover this one wasn’t too impressive. Marketing got to me on this one.
