A - Typical fizzy, yellow color, with a pretty nice fluffy white head. For the style, I guess it looks as it should.
S - Not much in the nose. A little fruit and some malt. Smells like a Miller Lite/Bud Light.
T - It's best when it's cold. I think this has a fairly high score because it's Sierra Nevada. If it were part of a blind taste test, in my opinion, it would be hard to separate this from any Macro Lager/Pilsener.
M - An unpleasant taste lingers on the back of the tongue. There's a subtle sweetness and a bit more flavor than a Macro Lager.
I haven't drank too many Czech Pilsners, but it seems to be a good example. I couldn't help but think this was an interpretation of an American adjunct lager. Then again, I'm not a huge fan of Pilseners and don't have much experience with the Czech style.
