Really great taste, a little cloudy, lacking aroma; May be the best pilsener I have ever tasted.

12 oz can, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department. I get some faint, and I mean really, really faint, like almost non-existent, notes of toasted malt and floral hops.

Taste: Delicious! I mean really, really delicious! Lots of toasted malt up front, imparting lots of bready, cereal-like flavors, followed by some good caramel-like sweetness, a touch of black pepper, and some faint hops at the finish. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty effervescent as there’s quite a good bit of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.3%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is definitely the best pilsner I’ve ever had, and honestly, one of the best session beers of any style I’ve ever had! It’s absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended!

Looks: like a great yellow fizzy beer.
Smell: is light and earthy didn't have the lite beer nastiness I associate with a pils.

Taste: was good. Clean refreshing very enjoyable. Not a flavor blast. Aftertaste holds with a light malt that reminds me of why I like beer. (I almost wish this this beer was stronger, almost)

Feel: very smooth easy drink.

Overall: this would be an excellent beer to intro non-craft drinkers with. Flavors are right on but not strong so wouldn't throw off Nu B's and so easy smooth and creamy to drink. This beer will be in my regular line (which grows to long) for times when I'm not looking to challenge my taste buds.

Pours a straw-colored golden yellow with bright, crisp straight white foam.

Herbal, biscuity, floral, and some very light citrus notes.

Slight lemon/citrus notes, bready/biscuity, and very floral.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing, clean finish.

Overall, not outstanding, but a worth-while pilsner style lager.

Poured a straw colored, clear, with a nice fluffy white one inch head. Aroma seemed a little weak, with some light yeast, cracker and some slight wine notes. The flavor was biscuity malt with a bit of of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was rather heavy for a Pilsner, but nice nonetheless. Overall, probably not the greatest example of a Pilsner, but pretty true to style and tasty too.
