Presentation: 12 oz brown long-neck bottle with a blurb about the beer on the back ... freshness date notched on the back label.
Appearance: Very clear golden straw with a fluffy rocky white head that sticks all around the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet with a trace raw honey like nose from the grain with a fresh mowed hay like hop aroma.
Taste: Smooth with a dreamy textured mouth feel. Lots of grain on the tongue with a palate cleansing vaguely herbal hop bitterness. Touch of sweetness up front but all and all on the dry side throughout. Hops stay assertive even into the finish to keep thing dry along with the grainy flavour.
Notes: Hmmm ... tastes like it was freshly shipped over from Germany. Not bad at all, a good find for any pilsner geek or even a macro brewery Beck's (or similar) drinker.
Serving type: bottle

Well now I get it. I ordered this because I wanted a pils. I was disappointed because I thought it tasted more like a vienna lager. Yeah for my palate, boo for my taste buds. Reviewed as a pilsner since that what the handle read.
This was kind of a hazy amber color. It had off tasting muddled, grainy sweetness. This was probably at least partially due to dirty lines at PNC park. But still...
Serving type: on-tap
