An aggressive pour netted a finger of near-white head. Golden body is a little hazy, lots of carbonation.

Very grainy aroma, with a good malt backbone. A light sweetness comes through on the end.

Sweet and malty on the opening, grain quickly dominates the flavor. Mild caramelization adds a nice sweetness, and spice abounds.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: This beer pours a clear darker golden color and is topped with ¾” of white head the dissipates quickly.
Smell: POC smells of a good malt base and a slight yeast aroma that has the tiniest amounts of hops in the far background.
Taste: The flavor of POC is a good blend of malt and yeast that I find rather intriguing. I wish there was some hop flavor in here but to no avail.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied pilsner that has good flavor and is easy to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle with no freshness date poured into a pils glass
A: Very pale yellow, LOTS of carbonation and a two-finger head that lingers and lingers. Very nice to look at
S: Average. A fair amount of corn-driven grain, a hint of butterscotch, just a wisp of hops
T: Also average but by no means bad. A full malt profile full of all sorts of dried grains- tastes like dried fresh not roasted. A moderate hop bitterness comes through on the midpalate/finish.
M: Light-bodied and a distinct pleasant crispness
O: I love this beer's appearance. Everything else is very solid though this is a rare instance when for me the sum can't equal the total of its parts. Definitely worth a try as I'm sure for many it would be otherwise, easy to kick back during the summer months

I had a bunch of Cellar Rats on tap last weekend with this being the last. I was shocked at how good it looked in the plastic cup. I kept blowing away foam so I could see the nice yellow color. From what I could tell it looked really clear.

The taste was a refreshing pils taste. Somewhat sweet with lots of character and decent finishing hops giving it an aroma to match. I will seek this out again. I may even make a trip out to where they make this (I lived there in briefly in the early eighties).

12oz bottle poured into a flute. Pours a very hazy yellow, small white head and decent lacing and retention. Some floaties. Huge blasts of malts in the aromas. There's a subtle touch of pear and white grapes. The pilsener malts really seem to dominate. The flavors are a bit underwhelming with a short lived bitterness. It's not as floral as I anticipated. There's a touch of black pepper, but not spicy. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel is great. Very active carbonation and thick for such a small beer. Pretty refreshing and nice for the outdoors.

This is a decent pilsener. It's not one of the best I've ever had, but it's far from the worst. It did the trick outside on a hot evening. I would drink this again.
