Pilsners from great brewers are often way better than you might expect. Unfortunately, this one is not exceptional.

It looks nice in the glass, clear and foamy. The aroma is the first let down. It's nice, but it is very weak.

The taste is good but also undistinguished, more like an American adjunct, but much more drinkable. The aftertaste is nothing.

I had this with some good pizza and the beer fit nicely but did not power up to the good za.
