look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours bright radioactive yellow with a huge, hyperactive head that drops away to nothing (and I mean nothing) in about a minute. Smells like wet cardboard and paint thinner. Tastes almost as good - solvent and honey with a strange sour finish and not a trace of hop character. The finish speaks of latex paint. This isn't even a good mass market beer. Avoid with great vigor.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a short lived white head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is sourdough and hint of hops. Body is light and smooth. Taste is sourdough, some sweet malt and cooked vegetables. Finish is short and sour. I don’t understand why college kids by cases of this crap.

I don't know why I thought a pilsener I'd never heard of would be a good idea after some Bourbon County Stout but good god, was it a bad idea?

On tap at a dive in NY, in a frosted glass to boot. Clear, yellow pour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing.

On the nose, there's a ton of corn and butter. Maybe some malt and some hops but this is just such a bad example of the style. On the palate, it's the same. There's no crispness, no hop bite, tons of corn and butter. Carbonation is OK but the finish is a horrendous mixture of (surprise!) corn and butter. This beer was quite undrinkable, the only reason I choked it down was because I paid 7 fucking dollars for it. Avoid at all costs

This beer poured with no incident and came out a straw yellow and very clear. Very much in line with a commercial pilsner. A slight head formed and stayed thin throughout, but did not vanish. Very little lacing with this beer. I was disappointed at the smell of this beer; not much hop aroma and I could detect the corn in this beer before it ever hit my lips. The taste unfortunately followed the smell. This beer tasted like it had more corn in it than malt; the taste was without character and left a slightly bitter aftertaste, the only sign of hops in this beer. An average mouthfeel for a pilsner, crisp and clean. While drinkable, I do not know why you would waste valuable drinking time on this; except for one thing, it is $11 a case in PA.

Reviewing this for the heck of it. Had this straight from the bottle, for a party beer it has the classiest appearance in a bottle with regal label. No perceptible smell, taste was incredibly light, high carbonation, very watery. A beer for someone who has no desire to taste beer. Completely inoffensive and for that reason, very offensive.
