A - 4.0 - Classic pilsner appearance, gold with a thick and very white head of enduring foam. Very active carbonation.
S - 3.5 - A familiar pilsner/light lager aroma with a bit of honey sweet and a hint of hops.
T - 4.0 - Noticeably maltier than a typical pilsner. The honey sweet element from the aroma is there. At the back corners of my tongue there's something on the border between sour and bitter, which is nice. Makes the salivary glands want to squirt a bit.
M - 3.5 - Light, soft, ends slightly dry.
O - 3.5 - Very pleasant and very drinkable. The heightened malt presence and the touch of sweetness would make this a flavorful yet flexible accompaniment with food. Specifically I'm imagining roasted potatoes with a roasted chicken but it's very versatile. It would also be an ideal session lager. You could drink these all night and not get palate fatigue and not give the beer much thought yet each sip would be satisfying and not blend into genericness.

A- Clear golden yellow body and a white foam cap of head. Constant stream of bubbles.
A- Clean malt light grassy hops.
T- Grainy sweet malt with a light bitterness that comes through more and sticks around in the finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor.
M- Medium body and smooth with an appropriate level of carbonation.
D- It's not bad, but there are better pilsners out there.
