From notes-

I’ve had this one many times over the years but it’s been so spread out that it’s hard to say if I can notice a difference in taste due to the altered brewing methods. Apparently they use mostly hop extract now, rather than whole cones, but my memory isn’t good enough to compare my review bottle with the older version.

A very clear, light gold beer with a smallish white head. Lacing is spotty but not bad.

Aroma is a little skunky, grassy and grainy with a bit of citrus. Typical Euro-Pils profile.

Flavor is much the same; clean and crisp, a bit skunky and bitter, just a touch of citrus; hops have a floral, grassy character. Light sweetness. Good carbonation makes it refreshing and easy to drink. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Medium-light body; a bit watery. Decent Pils, not particularly outstanding.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grass and bread with a little bit of citrus mixed in. The flavor has a little bit of bitterness from the hops, as well as some bready malt. I also get a little bit of spice from the hops which mixes very well with the other components. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I really enjoy this pilsner. It's a great every day drinker. It smells like a field on a breezy fall day. It's earthy and sweet and has just a reminder of hops. It may sounds dumb but it smells like beer. It's good.

The taste is crisp. Also has that earthy, field like taste to it. It has a residual sweetness that is pleasant and a touch of bitterness. It's a truly refreshing beer. This is one I could drink after working up a sweat.
