A- Pours a chill hazed orange-ish/gold color that resembles honey. There isn't much head retention, contrary to what the description on the can tells me....what there is, is a small patchwork of thin white foam. Lacing appears decent at first but becomes unimpressive, as the bubbles go from thick patches but quickly dissipate into small strings back into the beer.

S- This smells more like a weak pale ale than a pilsner.....lots of malt upfront with subtle notes of hop bitterness on the finish. The bitterness has no real citrus quality and the strength of the overall aroma seems like it is lacking effort....maybe the Saaz hops used were old....

T- A funny tasting pilsner is what I am experiencing! Overall, it follows the aromas and is weak. It is balanced nicely between sweet malty goodness and bitter finish, but it seems like it is quite metallic and slightly of adjunct. The more I drink it, the less flavorful it becomes unfortunately. I'm not an expert, but could the American Ale Yeast have something to do with the off flavor? It just seems like a run of the mill lager, with much more malt than normal.

M/O- The body is medium and it is a creamy beer to drink, as the carbonation is very smooth and refined....this is nice but not of the style in my opinion. There is no crispness or puckering on the palate....to use a wine term, this is a flabby beer! It's not a bad beer, but I think it's mislabeled and even then, I think there is much better out there. I'm disappointed and probably wont buy this again...it doesn't do anything for me!

A pilsner with ale yeast? You have got to be fucking kidding me.
