  • Poured clear as day with a big, pristine white, large bubbled foam. Retention was great with the foam becoming frothy, almost meringue like, as it subsided. Sticky lacing throughout.

    Aroma light malt with floral, lemon, and honey joining the mix. The scents are subtle overall.

    Taste is very light with not much to mention - a nice mix of subtleness. There is a bit of hop spices in the finish. Sweet, honey, and lemon all eventually can be made out.

    A light beer all the way around: carbonation and body. Nature of the style.

    This is very drinkable and crisp. A good pils that could use a little more on the nose and the mouth as these senses are really too light. Enjoy!
