This is Oskar Blues' pilsner, and it's pretty good, though maybe a touch heavy for the style. I'll drink this one, but I think there are better pilsners made in these parts. They have mastered the canning process with their beers, so it still tastes nice and fresh and it's very portable.

Light and drinkable pilsner. Doesn't overwhelm the palate. Lighter-medium bodied. More citrusy than I expected this go-around. Favorite pilsner in a can :)

Can poured into a flute. Clever name. Indeed, its yella ... a sparkling yet slightly cloudy light lemon drop hue with a rather gorgeous creamy white head of approximately two fingers height. Aroma is freshly hulled grains and fragrant noble hops all the way ... White bread, breakfast cereal, fresh cut hay, a tinge of tarragon and lavender. Great Saaz nose. Fresh, moderately sweet, and inviting. Palate is assertive, almost bold, with sweet grains and spicy hops in equal measure. An almost plain donut-like malt sweetness lurks underneath a slight grain husk note, clover-like floral hops, vanilla, bread from a cranked up toaster, and a hint of butter. The sweetness evokes cornbread as well. The vaguest whiff of orange citrus. Classic Czech profile on the nose, hybrid Czech/CAP (classic American pils) on the palate. Thin to moderate body I suppose, highly carbonated. The husk note could be considered a rough edge but I don't mind too much right at this point. One of those beers that translates super well at the right moment ... Which must be now as I type this review.
