12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a semi-hazy golden color. There's about one fingers worth of rocky, white-colored head. It actually has slightly better retention than I expected, and leaves some lacing behind.
S: One has to really bury their nose in order to find the aroma. Some faint lemon exists along side a touch of pale malt, with little else. Nothing is really bad about its nose...but neither is there much good.
T: There's a better showing here on the taste. It starts off with some faint noble hop bitterness, quickly growing into a sweet (and actually slightly juicy) lemony finish. Touches of apricot and peach also exist; also somewhat like sweet tea at times. This is the best part of the brew, even if it's a touch too sweet at times.
M: Way too astringent. Of course, that means it's nice and dry, but I could do without it choking my tongue into submission. In spite of that, it's light weight, well carbonated, and easy to drink.
O: This wouldn't be my first choice for a pilsner. If I saw this in a fresher state, I'd pounce on it more easily. It's at least held up well for it to still be decent as is.

A-a clear pale gold with a creamier white head. Great retention and some effevesence
S-rich biscuit tones and mild earthy hops
T- rich malt flavors, big bread balanced against the milder noble hops. There's a pleasant fruity aspect on the finish
M-a little thinner, but with a nice fullness to it. No noticeable "bubbly" feeling from the carbonation
O-a really good, lighter but full-flavored Pilsner.
