Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks for the beer betsona!

A- Pours a semi-hazed golden straw yellow color. Two finger white head shows medium retention. Nice streaks of lace all over the walls of the glass.

S- The aroma was quite simple which I expected it to be. Pretty much from the get go there was a nice pils malt base with hints of grain to it. Light earthy grassy hops come in the ending and add a little extra to the aroma. Everything was light but not muted. Alcohol was also crisp and I liked it.

T- Pils malt right off the bat with hints of pepper in the mix. Middle shows a little grain bill to it but nothing that is screaming adjuncts to it. Ending is more of the clean pils malt with a fresh grassy hop that is light but balanced out the beer nice. Alcohol is crisp, clean, and light in the ending.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Pils malt, light pepper, and grassy hops are left on the palate. Aftertaste is light alcohol, pils malt, and grassy hops. Well balanced for the style. No off flavors at all in the beer. Light alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This beer was a very nice simple pilsner. I enjoyed the fact that they didn't overdo the hopping this which lead it to be a very clean and easy drinking beer. Sweetwater I think has a balance on making both easy drinking beers along with huge over the top beers.
