This has been my favorite daily drinker for a month now although I can only find it in one store here in Baton Rouge. It's a very easy drinker.

Appearance is a little cloudy with head that fades away very quickly.

Smell is very grassy and has that sort of "funk" smell I've come to expect from Saint Arnold products. It's a good quality although I can think of no other word to describe it.

Taste is fantastic. nice malt, lots of grass, very clean.

Mouthfeel is a nice little bite on the tongue. Good body that feels as good as it tastes.

Overall I love this beer. I wish it was available in more stores in Baton Rouge.

golden amber color to it. Lots of carbonation streaking toward the surface throughout the entire session. A very nice three inch high head of white foamy and fizzy lace formed on the top and hung around for a few moments before finally settling down to just a thin film across the top that lasted until the end.

The aroma was loaded down with cereal grains and a touch of light fruity yeast. The aroma of banana clearly evident as was a nice fresh grass like hoppy nose. The flavor followed right along with it, being very light in profile and feel and very highly carbonated. List grain flavors dominated with a nice earthy feel. Hints of banana and fresh grass running through it as well, with a very nice light, refreshing taste.

Pours clear, bright gold with a nice white head that recedes very quickly to a nice foam cap. Lively carbonation for the first few minutes

Dry aroma of a malty base, with a clear twang of noble hops and the slightest hint of honey. Always a nice and unique take on the pilsner aroma.

Hop flavor comes through up front, with a crisp biscuity malt backbone below. Not excessively bitter, very balanced. A good pilsner for someone who miight complain about Urquell being too bitter or sharp.

Smooth and refreshing, with just a little more heft than many lagers. Easy drinking with a great body

Awesome beer, one of my favorite examples of a pilsner, and lagers in general.
