A: A bright and vibrant yellow with a zippy bubbles of carbonation jetting towards the top. Head is frothy and tall, falling slowly but leaving some nice patches of sudsy lace on the glass. Retention is well-fed by the continuous stream of carbonation coming up from below.
S: Musty, grainy malt with a strong presence of spice, floral scent, and some citrus. A good showing in the aroma department for a pilsner.
T&M: Quite tasty. Pale malt lays down some slight graininess and must, but the noble hops really contribute most of the flavor here. Gentle floral notes, bright lemony citrus, and a dose of spice contribute in about equal parts. Flavor is quite refreshing and lively. Not quite on the level of Prima Pils, but close. Body is a bit bigger than your standard pils, with a lively and zesty carbonation that gives it a crisp finish.
D: Highly drinkable. Another notch in the belt of BBC for a well-crafted and widely distributed craft beer.
Serving type: bottle
