3.56/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From a 355 ml bottle (best by May 12, 2013) into a globe glass.

A-A normal pour produces a healthy, shiny, white head that is nearly two fingers tall. The brew is light golden in color, clear, with a decent show of carbonation.

S-Not much happening here. There is a faint hop twang, very light lemon, some doughy malt.

T-The taste is a lot like the smell, i.e., very mild hops, a little bit of toasted white bread, some straw, and barely-there lemon.

M-The feel is very light, crisp, with a bubbly carbonation. Chuggable.

O-This is a good looking beer, but there are certainly better-tasting Pils out there. This one errs on the side of light and refreshing (maybe a good pool beer/golf beer), but even assuming that light and refreshing was the goal, I could use a little more taste and body here.
