When I think pilsner this is what I think off.
Appearance wise you can't really get any better.
It poured a brilliantly clear deep straw. The head formed high and tight and coated the glass with loads of lace. This beer was also well carb'd with never ending streams of bubbles floating to the top. Excellent head retention to the bitter end.
The aroma is dry, sharp with piles of pilsner and pale malts I'm sure. Standard fare here.
The taste was very good from top to bottom. A good solid malt base with plenty of flavor. Hopped enough with german hops to give this beer a subtle hoppy bitter bite, but not alot!
Malts counter with some sweetness.
On the palate it finishes dry and sharp with a semi bitter finish. Carbonation gives a light and prickly feel and ends very clean. It's crisp and refreshing.
This was an excellent well made beer in every category. As of last week I thought Pivo was but this is much better.

Light straw color with a slight haze.

Yeasty, white bread, white flowers, rice, yellow apple, mild dankness.

Light cabbage, creamed corn, moderate malt tones.

Medium bodied and crisp. Beer finishes with a light bitterness. Mild carbonation for the style.

(Served in a stemmed strange)

A- This beer pours a pure white creamy head with a clear golden yellow body that has a swirl of micro carbonation working toward the surface.

S- The touch of sweetness to the pils malt gives it a nice fresh quality with some flinty character to follow. There is a dry hop note in the finish and a hint of corn cereal aswell.

T- The hint of mineral water gives way to a clean lagered Pils malt followed by a green hop bite in the dry finish.

M- This beer has a light crips fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer is a great American Pilsner and very sessionable, especially as the weather warms. Perfect in the 16 oz. cans or growler.

Vibrant clear yellow body with nice contrasting white head.

Grainy and buttery scent. Light floral perfume.

The perfume is strong in the flavor. Lilac. Grain.

Crisp and clean mouthfeel. Lighter body.

A very nice pilsner. Not much to it, but simplicity is good here.

Thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, malts, a bit floral. Taste is malty, lemons, not nearly as sweet as the smell, again, some floral notes. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
