Part of my beer of the month selection, 12 oz bottle, with 6099 a-30215 on the bottom, poured into a pilsner glass
Apours hazy golden honey color with a ¾ inch bone white head that lasts for a few minutes before reducing into a thin sheet, laces like sea foam
Ssweet and sour, mildly fruity, almost like dark fruits, not the pilsner smell I was expecting
Tthere is faint fruitiness, but mostly wheat ad other grains that dominate this one, some biscuit flavors are coming out as I get to the end of the glass, finishes dry and clean
Msmooth and clean, light bodied, good carbonation
Dgood. Ill enjoy the other two I received. Easy drinking, but a different pilsner in my opinion .perhaps because it is classified as a Vienna lager?

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a nice golden amber color with a thick one finger white head. Large bubbles within the head pop, causing the head to slowly fade, with the loss of the head leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is biggest of grainy smells but has other aromas of a grassy nature. Along with these aromas are some notes of a lemon citrus and caramel and a little bit of light fruit.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light caramel and fruit flavor. The sweeter flavors fades fast with some light hop of a citrus and grassy nature taking their place, along with just a bit of grainy malt flavor. These flavors largely take the taste to its end, where they are joined by a light yeast and some bitter grapefruit and sweeter citrus, to leave a still quite dry, lightly hopped, and bready flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thicker side for a brew of its abv. and style with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A higher carbonation level and thinner body may have been a bit more appropriate for the style and made it an easier drinking and more refreshing brew.
Overall –The flavors of the brew were rather nice, as the drier yet still somewhat complex flavors of the brew were quite appropriate for the style, making it a rather good choice. If only the body was a bit thinner and carbonation a bit higher than this would have been very enjoyable for the flavors and style. Overall however, the brew is well worth a try.
