12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Dec. 4, 2012 (purchased the 12-pack for $12.99 at the 7/11 near Allied Gardens (San Diego) on Dec. 4, 2012. Honey golden (but almost amber) with about one finger of bubbly white head that dissipated at an above average rate. Hardly any retention.
Smelled sharp whiff of alcohol up front, giving way to pilsner malts. Got honey, corn, hay and even a bit of caramel.
Tasted a little more bland and watered down than I anticipated after the smell. Got light honey malts and that’s about it. Some light corn and grass.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-above average carbonation. Abrupt watery finish.
Started out so well, but fizzled once it hit my lips. That being said, it was better than a Bud Light of a Budweiser. Nice change of pace.

This one shines brightly, a clear yellow-orange color. The head, just off-white, makes it to half a finger and falls quickly but not as quickly as some, leaving some wisps of foam capable of some decent spotting.
Pilsner's an easy style in once sense in attaining to the strength and depth it needs, but very difficult in the technicalities to brew without flaws. As such, this beer's cleanness and drinkability point to some skill. It's floral and pretty grassy with a little sweetness and some citrus zest. There's just a buzz of spiciness in the nose and the tip of the tongue. There are some huskier, almost dry, grains underlying. To be honest, though, this would get more points as a Czech pils. It's entirely too weak as far as the hops are concerned, and a little too sweet overall.
It's light-bodied but not thin or weak like A-B's typical lager lineup. There's a solid crispness to it. I'm a little surprised by a certain creaminess.
