Best by June 13, 2012:

Into a pilsener:

A: bright golden orange colored body with a subtle amount of bubbles slowly rising, no head whatsoever, no lacing

S: sweet with some malts up, wheaty grains are in the back, lingering hops, light "skunkiness"

T: sweet and bready, malts and wheaty grains back up the sweetness, there is a bit of grassiness, but not overbearing, the skunk is slightly noticed

M: light to medium, crisp and smooth, sessionable, some harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste, grassy finish

O: not sure if a German Pilsener at 4.4 could last in a green bottle all the way until June, but hey, its an average beer for the most part

Poured from green 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Date on bottle is June 13, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with lots of rising bubbles and a solid three fingers of white head with good retention. A moderate amount of lace sticks to the glass.

Smell: Sweet and bready cracker like malts up front with some wheat grains. Also a good presence of Noble and Saaz hops lingering around. Somewhat grassy and spicy. Also a bit of skunk one would expect from a green bottle.

Taste: Sweet and bready with a mild bit of spice. Pale malts and wheat grains are followed by a nice blend of Saaz and Noble hops. Light hints of lemon and spice. Somewhat grassy. Nicely balanced malts and hops. Can't taste any skunk here.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to full level of carbonation. Very crisp and smooth drinking.

Overall: A pretty solid Pilsner lager. A classic.
