2/5  rDev -26.7%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A straw colored beer, the head microscopic, the lace sparse and patchy globs upon the glass. Nose is malt, sweet, but not unpleasant. Start is cloyingly sweet, the top cadaverous, the finish adequately carbonated, the hops scarce, the aftertaste dry as a bleached bone in the Arizona Desert, a totally forgettable beer.

3.88/5  rDev +42.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 11.2 oz green bottle with a gold foiled top. No freshness date.

Appearance: Bright pale crystal clear golden brew with a thin bubbly white lace.

Smell: Imported pilsner nose, soft aroma of cooked veggies and freshly milled malted grain.

Taste: Crisp and smooth mouth feel with a moderate effervescent carbonation. Medium bodied, grainy with an assertive and clean hop bitterness. Hints of sweetness and alcohol, that give a light slickness to the mouth feel, with a vague smoky flavour, perhaps from a fire heated kettle or a fusel alcohol. Hop bitterness and a faint ghost like smoke flavour linger in the finish.

Notes: An interesting pilsner, three dimensional in flavour with hops, malt and an odd hint of smoke. Certainly a brew for a beer lovers palate that wants more than just the ordinary. Yeah it is kosher if you were asking yourself.
