look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 16 oz. can: bright, clear and deep golden with a quickly fading white-head. The hue reminds me a lot of golden color of Pilsner Urquell.
The aroma was rather faint but clean with hints of noble hops. Overall, the weakest link of this otherwise thin pilsner.
The flavor begins with a very nice, smooth malty palate with mild, tangy hop bitters lingering on the tongue. This is certainly one unique pilsner. The rounded cookie-like malt profile reminds me of a Czech pilsner rather than a German.
The body was heavier than typical of the style with a round, supple and bittersweet mouthfeel. The carbonation is quite restrained with a faint bitterness lingering on the palate.
This "pilsner" is not for the purist, but it quite enjoyable and refreshing just the same. I would not describe it as crisp as there is a somewhat heavy sweetness present.

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tall pint glass: color is opaque gold/copper, head is bright white, presenting 1/2 inch thick then dissipating to a nice top; definitely more dense/murky than other pilsners.
Smell is light pils malts, then grassy hops, solid bitterness, light citrus and earthy notes.
Taste is crisp, definitely full of hops, though the subtle grassy flavors are prominent, some stronger citrus type flavors are noted with a strong drying, bitter finish; malt is pils and bread, subtle backbone type flavor. Earthy flavors are prominent as well.
Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and biting on the tongue, very drying, more so than other similar style pilsners.
Overall, this is seems to be close to a kellerbier in presentation with a heavy bitter pils take. As it warms up the flavors come through pleasantly, but the nose seems off and mouthfeel a bit overdone.
