look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

I poured a bottle into a pilsener glass.

Appearance- Clear golden-yellow color with two fingers worth of lingering head. Fair amounts of sticky lacing.

Smell- Faint aroma of grain and grassy hops.

Taste- Lightly toasted grain and nutty flavors with hints of herbal hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and very crisp. Average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A fairly standard pilsener. I can see myself enjoying a few of these while grilling some burgers.

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

Pours a clear golden, with a big, creamy off white head, that leaves tons of lacing as the beer passes through the glass. Aromas of of freshly cut grass. Taste is a citrus peel beginning, followed by some light crackers, then an herbal, zesty bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a nice pilsner, easy drinking, but not dumbed down.

A-golden with a nice sticky white head. Lots of bubbles

S-crisp grains with a nice hint if light honey. Fair strength

T-comes in with a great grassy bitterness along with a nutty grain flavor, almost reminds me of Cheerios. I like it! It's actually full of bold and quality flavors. There's a good matching after-taste.

M-medium carbonation with a nice crisp finish

O-I bought a 6 pack of this with out ever having it before. I'm glad I did! It's very tasty! It's a quality lager! I really don't know what else to say besides go out and try this please! It's one of the best pilsners I've ever had.
