Everything I could ask for in a pils... Beautiful golden hue out of the bottle, carbonated as F***, complex fruit/citrus nose and taste that follows. Glorious, slowwwwly dissipating white head that I am thinking about submerging my face in or around. Looks quite appetizing. This is as refreshing as beer gets, pick up a 4 pack on a hot day.

Appearance-Foggy yellow orange to bright gold with cream color foam.

Smell-toffee and stone fruit. Light and summery.

Taste-Follows the nose and adds citrus fruit on the finish.

Mouthfeel-Light body and good finish on the front palate.

Overall-One of the better Pilseners I've had recently. Clean and crisp with good complexity and evolution of flavors and aromas.

Firstoff, this is an unapologetic pilsener that is slightly hopped up and it definitely lives up to the title. Jokes about the name aside ("the golddigger of beers") the color is cracker yellow, body is clean, the flavors are balanced between bread and grass, and the finish is crisp. No apparent skunk from this round of bottles, and perfect for a hot evening with some legit Mexican food.
Worth the $12 for a 4 pack ($3.00 a beer)? I would pay $3 for this over any mainstream lager or most German pilseners, including Jever, given the choice. In conclusion, this is a refreshingly dry pilsener that lives up to its claims and not anyone else's.

First of all I have to say I love this beer for poking fun at Miller High Life...The red logo on the can and the name, pretty clever.

Eye: Really don't get much better than this. Beautiful gold color, lively carbonation, and a nice rocky white head. The head does fall rather quickly though leaving some spotty lacing, but that could be my glass.

Nose: Nice malt aroma. Clean and balanced. Hops don't stand out, but this isn't a malt bomb, and it shouldn't be. I would like to see a little more hop character in the aroma though, I mean its there, but I think a little more would just make this one a bit better. I mean some spicy noble hops are there, but I would like just a bit more to balance out the sweetness I'm picking up from the malt.

Mouth: Noble hops upfront, malt sweetness and then it finishes with some hops lingering in the aftertaste to balance it all out. Quite a nice beer. What wasn't there in the aroma as far as hops go is certainly in the flavor. Hops are upfront in flavor and with bitterness. Very nice. This tastes like a German Pils and is authentic in my opinion. Kudos. This is one I'd highly recommend if you are a fan of REAL PILSNER beer, not the HIGH LIFE kind hahah. Light body with appropriate carbonation.

Drinkability: This is one that I would highly recommend. Very drinkable and just overall an outstanding Pils. I'll be coming back to this beer no double about it.

Pours a cloudy blonde color with a whitish hue on the sides. Decent head that is quick to fade. Looks marvelous.

Lots of malt in the nose. Grainy. Decently hopped too. I would say that this beer fits my mood as it is.

The hops are restrained, allowing the grainy malt base to dominate the palate.

Things get watery towards the back of the throat. Either that or the malt just doesn't hold up as much.

Well worth a try. I've had nothing but good experiences with Evil Twin.
