Poured a nice deep golden orange with a thin off white head, light retention with carbonation running throughout until the end of the glass.
The smell is very fruity with a bit of apple and white grape coming through along with a light touch of corn.
The flavor is clean with a light crackery malt body with a lightly green noble hop quality to the finish, very balanced with just a light bit of sweetness and slightly grassy bitterness working well together.
the mouthfeel is very dry and a touch of resin.
Overall I like this, it has just a touch more character than most pils I come accross along with I know it being super fresh probably helps as well.

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.
