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.

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.
