(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear golden orange body with a lumpy pale white head supported by loose chains of tiny bubbles.

S- The clean aroma has hints of DMS dried corn that grows as it opens but otherwise a very clean aroma.

T- The clean flavor has a touch of sweetness to the pale malt flavor with a faint buttery note that grows a bit as it warms. There is a slight tart hop note in the finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that grows as it warms.

O- This beer is not real crisp but is pretty clean with a touch of sweetness but not enough character to make it sessionable.

Color is a clear yellow with a golden hue, thin white foamy head with some spotty clear lacing. Smells of musty grasses and dullish sweet, very nice and fresh. Taste is clean and smooth, slightly sweetish and bitter, balanced very well and easy. Most of the taste is located at the top of the mouth with a strange emptyness going down, but isn't bad, just unusually holding. Feel is pretty full for a pilsner, its favorably medium bodied and has a textured roughness in the last parts and the finish that lends to a grainyness, kinda gritty, quite interesting, but felt wrong for the style for me. It's still very drinkable and wouldn't pass it up.

Pours a nice clear medium yellow with a small white head. The foam settles and leaves no real signs of lacing on the walls of the glass.

Smells of crisp and clean golden malt with a nice hint of yeast and a touch of faint caramel. Hint of bready aroma makes it to the nose also.

Smooth light malt body with a nice sweetness to it. Bit of prickly carbonation brings out the flavor. Nice and bready with a bit of toasted flavor coming in at the end. Hint of fruitiness and a touch of grass. Easy drinking and flavorful.

A vigorous pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a one-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a dark gold color as it sits on my desk, but shows a bright, full gold color when held up to the light. Perhaps a touch dark for a German style Pils, but it is perfectly in line with the color of a more Bohemian style one. The aroma has an up front grassy grain character as I take a deep draught of the nose, but it has a herbal / grassy hop character to it as well. After a bit a touch of sweet grain character becomes noticeable in the aroma, though this is fairly faint and this remains a crisp, dry smelling beer over all.

This has a nice soft hop bite to it up front that becomes more pronounced towards the finish. Competing with the bitterness in the finish is a sweet, pale grain flavor that was most noticeable during my first sip. Overall this beer finishes fairly dry and with a crisp hop bitterness. The grain sweetness does make an appearance from time to time in the finish though. Herbal hop notes dominate in a clean way and both malt and hop contribute to a certain, light grassy flavor. Cracker-like malt flavors and a clean pale malt character struggle to be noticed through the more dominant hop character. This is definitely hop dominated, but the hops are not overly aggressive and in fact could be more pronounced (might be a freshness issue), but still the malt seems a touch weak comparatively, even in a Pils I would expect a bit more characterful malt character. I do like the body and texture of this brew, it is not overly light and has just enough body to it to make things interesting. As the beer warms a bit a touch of cooked-corn / DMS character starts to become noticeable, it is fairly light and seems to add some extra complexity more than take away anything.

A decent example of a Pils that could use a bit more malt character and / or a touch more hop notes. Still this is good and certainly hit my hankering for a Pils, though the DMS gets a bit distracting as I get towards the end of my glass.
