Bought a mix-12 "Beer Camp" pack of this from Payless Liquors in Fisher, IN for $14.99. Poured one of the 12 FL. OZ. bottles w/ a Blue Label and a Wooden Brew Kettle in a forest into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has 2168206:24 on the front of the bottle neck.
Aroma- Has a BIG German Malt and light corn like sweetness. Noble hops are evident and very clean throughout the whole smelling process. Close to perfect.
Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that slowly dies. Has a clear yellow colored body with tons of carbonation bubbles shooting to the top. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Very sweet with crystal malts and noble hops. Rice based? Not sure but seems like it. Smooth and finishes with the lightest bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Bit Creamy, and prickles the tongue with crystal malt.
Overall Impression- An impressive beer for my first one to try of this "Beer Camp" series. Very close to a German Pilsner but had more attribute. Enjoyed thoroughly as my first beer of the night!

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.
