Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear pale yellow color with less than 1/2 inch of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma had a solid grain base, with some gentle, earthy hops in the background. The flavor profile was the same, solid grains, with some nice balancing hoppiness. The flavors combined nicely for a well balanced combination of flavors.

The body was a bit fuller and thicker than is typical for the style, and had a smooth, crisp and dry finish. Drinkability was very good, you could easily knock off several of these over an afternoon. Overall, a pretty nice take on the style. Maybe not the beer for you if you like your Pilseners on the lighter side, but certainly worth a shot to decide for yourself.
