Yo. A Pilsiner. Great stuff. You can drink these all day. Right.

It's pretty yellow and not quite clear. The aroma, though subtle, is right where it should be. A mild, hoppy indicator of the nice pils to come.

The taste is a nifty freshness that the site should be. Extremely refreshing. Gimme a six of these babies. The aftertaste has the same freshness. Something nice to linger on the palate. This is a tough beer to make. There are so many crappy american ones, but they made the effort and came up with one worth drinking.

Classic golden pilsner appearance, I also think the can itself I really nice looking. Light smell, pale malts, some sweet floral notes. Not really bitter, but hoppy tasting, light citrus and fruit notes and some candy sweetness. Crisp and easy drinking.

A nice summer time beer for hop heads! I love the bright hoppy flavors paired with such a light and effervescent pils. Certainly not the most authentic beer, but definitely worth a try if you like hops and are looking for a refreshing, low-alcohol alternative to IPA. Like most light lagers, it is a bit underrated on BA because too many people have hang ups about this style. Just because something is in the same family as a PBR or Bud doesn't mean it's bad!
