look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint. This is PBC's current flagship beer and a decent craft beer you can find cheap at most decent bars in Philadelphia. I've had this many times on draft, only a few times in a bottle.

A side note: A lot of people here really want to focus on style on this one it seems. I wouldn't do that. PBC doesn't really market it as a Kolsch. Their website emphasizes pilsner malts, but I wouldn't call it a pilsner so much as PBC's attempt at a crossover hit. This is a beer made for people who don't usually drink craft beer, and it is probably one of the best beers you can give someone to help them cross over into better territory. From their website: "This crisp, light-bodied, golden beer is the very definition of refreshment." Anyway...

Appearance: Nice gold color with a decent white head that doesn't stick around too long. Looks sort of like a "super" adjunct.

Smell: Lightly sweet, some citrus notes and a lot of bready wheat.

Taste: Citrus and hops first, gives way to a deliciously bready beer.

Mouthfeel: Light body, but if you're comparing it to adjuncts, a little heavier. Ample carbonation, effortlessly drinkable/sessionable and pretty refreshing and crisp.

Like I said, this is what I give to people looking to try something new with only experience in Miller/Coors/Bud/Keystone/whatever or Yuengling lager. It does its job, plus it keeps me satisfied on the cheap in quite a few bars.
