Bought a six of this, at my local purveyor of spirits. Was looking for a promising American pilsner.

Alas, this is a "pilsner" that wants to be an IPA.

Aroma, mouthfeel all ok.

Color a nice golden.

Head was ok, but bubbles a little big.

Taste is clean, but bitter.

Way too hoppy for a pilsner, let alone a Czech-style Pilsner.

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

12oz bottle.

A: Pleasing pale gold color with a foamy white head. Strings of bubbles rising through the body.

N: Straw, mild earthy hops, and the distinct smell of pilsner malt. A touch of flowers. Very simple but inviting.

T: Hops and malt act in accordance with each other - as the malt gives the hop bitterness a boost without the alpha acids becoming overbearing.

M: Light and crisp. On point for the style.

O: A worthy kick back and relax beer. Doesn’t extend the boundary of the style, but it’s a great football sipper.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

appearance; light blonde, thin layer of head that quickly dies. thin carbonation.

smell; slightly bread like, bit of hops.

taste; nice flavor. crisp, good balance of hops and maltiness, bit of dryness too the finish and some fruit in there.

mouthfeel. mouthfeel is somewhat lacking. a little creamy but yearned for bubbles to compliment.

overall. good. doesn't wow but its always nice to find a quality lager/ pilsner even if it isn't the most memorable of beers.
