Bright pale straw color with moderate pearly activity. Foamy white 3-4 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with moderate legs. Flavors of sweet grains, light apples, lemon, lager yeast, floral hops. The smell is properly flowery. Slick and rounded full body with moderate carbonation, lightly crispy. Light strength finish, sharp malts and fruit, a hint of leaves and barley, no corn or very faint, and a proper vegetable feel. A bit dry and tongue coating, yet well balanced. For a true interpretation of the style it’s a winner, quite similar to an Urquell so it’s more like a Czech, yet a bit more flavorful and probably not as complex although very close! It’s fresh and satisfying, grainy and leafy, a pleasant to drink highly accessible brew. I find it rare to find a good pils. Overall very good quality craft.
