look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Paid $2.99 for the single. Into a pint glass

A - A very light pour to prevent the sediment from entering my glass has failed. A bright amber yellow color with a swirl of sediment sort of like a lava lamp. No head or lacing
S - First sniff was very pilsner like skunky malts and herbal hops. In the glass it smells more sweet with corn adjacent and a touch of grainy bite.
T - Not bad it taste like a sweetned up sugary pilsner. Corn and grain bill is timid.
M - ABV is pretty well hidden. Kind of bland.

Overall I guess this beer is OK the ABV is well hidden but it doesn't have the snappy hop profile it suggests on the label. Not going to pick it up again.

eyes...
your typical straw color, lots of carbonation racing around the glass in a manic frenzy, as active as the carbonation is the head is consistent at the level of one finger, lacing is super nice, as far as pilsners go this is a nice looking one

nose...
not much here, some grain notes, a faint hop signature... pretty bland

taste etc...
I suppose the best aspect of this beer is the mouthfeel, it has a nice full feel to it without being too heavy to quaff, the typical pils flavors are slightly amplified and there is a medicinal type hop presence here, there is almost a mint quality in there underneath the grain flavor, the carbonation is subtle and right on.. it kind of lurks underneath and then breaks right at the proper point

verdict?
interesting. not my fave double pils by a longshot but not a bad beer, a nice option if you see it on tap on the town out with the boys
