Bottle from Sheetz in Altoona, PA.
A - Pours a clear golden color with a white head that leaves lacing behind.
S - Is of pale grainy malt with some sweetness.
T - Follows the nose with a good bit of sweetness up front that slides into a grainy finish.
M - This beer has a medium body with higher carbonation to it.
O - Not a great beer but a long ways a way from being a bad beer. To me the style doesn't leave much room to do big things with. This beer has a pretty good taste that's easy to drink so I can't really knock it. Worth a try if you like Pils.

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.
