22oz bottle, unclear bottling date. Thanks Shaun. Poured into a TG snifter today, 3/20/2014.

App- Slighty hazy straw-yellow body, minimal one finger white head that dissipates quickly. Looks refreshing. Some spots of lacing but otherwise not a ton.

Smell- First thing that comes to mind is tart. A lemon zesty tartness that made me immediately wonder if this beer was infected. But otherwise it fades as it warms, with a nice dank noble hoppiness and breadiness.

Flavour- Bready, noble hops, otherwise forgettable. Solid pilsner flavour that would work well on a hot summer day rather than a winter day like this.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, a bit more fuller bodied than the European examples. Good carbonation. Easy to drink and not particularly bitter.

Overall- Decent American take on the Czech pilsner style, a bit different than what I'm accustomed to. Decent pricing as well, $5 for a bomber. Not the worst in any criteria you can use for this beer.

this thing exploded out of the bottle... has me worried as this shot all over the place (this has been sitting in my cellar for some months), hazy golden straw color, a decent amount of carbonation, small white head that does retain very nicely, good lacing as well, a good looking

earthy, grainy, baked hearth bread, if you hunt for it there is a honey note playing hide and seek with your nose, nice

taste etc...
really smooth, almost silky, not overpowering flavor but kind of a really lingering string of notes, you get some biscuity grain (almost chewy), some slight bitterness, some nice malt flavor as well, this really sticks to the palette, it is at once refreshing but also satisfying for a pilsner (without destroying the style), this might be fuller than most pils you run across but the balance is just right as to not be a detriment, and oddly enough with the veritable explosion when I opened this the carbonation is pretty tame.

eminently drinkable, super smooth, maybe not the most complex thing around but the malt is really a star here, looking forward to having this in the summer watching jeter's last hurrah or at a BBQ

Poured from the bottle into my oversized pilsen glass.

Poured a slightly hazy yellow color, maybe a tiny bit of orange. The fluffy, billowy head stuck around for a while and just barely popped out of the glass, beautiful. White lacing stuck around for a while. The nose has some cool herbal, grassy hops that remind me of a field after a rain storm. There's more grass/hay taste in the beginning, and finishes with some bitter fruit (grapefruitish). The mouthfeel is a bit creamier than expected, but still fairly thin. carbonation is on the lower end of pilsners.

Overall, this is a nice pilsner. I wanted to save it for slightly warmer weather, but I have trouble letting craft pilsners sit around. The abv keeps this from being something I drink in the middle of a Memphis summer, but its a nice spring evening brew.

If you don't like delicate, flowery and wet, cracker-hued pilsners then this is not the beer for you. While not assertive in any way, it drinks clean and is ridiculously refreshing. Worth the price, but the desire for an immediate 2nd is what costs you.
