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.
