Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Harpoon IPA glass.

a; Clear gold with a huge white head which required additional pours to keep from overflowing. The head receded rather slowly to heavy even surface foam and fairly dense lacing. However after the glass was full it appeared that most of the carbonation had escaped on the pour, relatively few (but tiny) carbonation bubbles left.

s: Grain.

t: Good grainy light malt with slight citrus note. Dry finish.

m: Light to moderate, good body for a pilsner.

o: A better than average pilsner, definitely get a sense of quality all the way. A refreshing warm weather and/or thirst-quenching brew.
