A - Golden yellow - big fluffy head and left some decent lacing. Excellent clarity left bubbles racing in the glass.
S - Very underwhelming smell of faint yeast, and some malts and caramel.
T - Smooth and crisp - faint sweetness from the malts. Taste like a bud with some more flavor.
O - Its like a bud with a bit more flavor and complexity. If you go into it thinking your going to get an adjunct lager you are going to be pleasantly surprised. If you got into thinking your going to get a hand crafted microbrew, your going to be disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised.

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.
