This is a light-bodied beer with a nice amber hew. It drinks much lighter than I would expect by looking at the color. The beer has no discernible hop aroma, and the finish is very short. I think it's just an easy-to-drink, everyday type of beer. I have had pilsner with more body, but hey...you can get this pretty inexpensively. I paid $12.99 for a 12-pack.
