Pours clear and golden with a light head. Nose is sweet with a hint of grass. Taste was spicy hops with a bite. Really clean feel. Excellent pilsner!

I'd put this slightly above Nooner Pils.

Looks like a pilsner, good carbonation. Has that wheat smell I like and tastes OK but fades into that thicker syrupy honey taste/feel that I don't really like in some pilsners.

22oz bottle poured into a Pilsner glass. Pours a clear light golden color with abundant carbonation. Only a thin head and not much lacing. Floral scent. Course feel. Dry hoppy taste with moderate bitter aftertaste. A very solid, thirst quenching, sessionable Pilsner. It's status as a category leader is well deserved (9.0)

A: Thin white head. Golden color liquid.
S: Subtle earthy and spicy hops with fruity notes and slight sweet bready malts.
T: Front is slight bread sweetness, bubbly spicy hops middle, finish is subtle mellow earthy hops that leaves a nice dry finish.
M: Medium to high carbonation. Medium body.
O: My go to Pilsener. Great for a lighter less filling beer with good taste and moderate hoppiness.

Pours a yellow color. No head. Smells bready, slightly sweet, and has a noticeable hop aroma in there. Tastes fuckin' great! Bready malt, and a very subtle hop flavor comes through towards the end of my glass. Light body, easy to drink. Awesome pils.

I don't think American Pilsner gets better than this. Sometimes over carbonated.
