Poured into a pint glass. Pours golden with a finger-length white head and lots of visible tiny bubbles. There is some lacing left in the glass during consumption. There are aromas of sweet malt and cracker with some grassy hops. There are sweet, bready malts with the grassy hop notes to balance them out. What I found in the nose is what you get in the glass, but I also detect a little citrus. The body is light to medium with medium carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. The drinkability is high. This is a very good beer.

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.
