12 oz into a Pilsner flute.
A - Brilliantly clear deep gold with bubbly white head. Beautiful, but would like a more pillowy, long lasting head.
S - Distinct tea-like german hop aroma along with a bready sweetness.
T - Malty sweet, almost doughy, with a german hop flavor in the background. No discernable bitterness.
M - Very light body with high carbonation. Dry finish.
O - A very nice American lager. Give me a 12 pack, a nice day, a river and a canoe; good times will be had. We should've stuck with what they were making in 1898.

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.
