Basic Pils ala Capital Brewery. Mainstream, shall we say, with more hops than you might get elsewhere but still very American as opposed to European / malt kind of dominates overall, but without a great depth of character. Still, refreshing and flavorful, and always welcome.

Pours slightly hazed golden yellow with a thin head that soon becomes a thin wisp. Little lacing sticks.
The smell is of mild grain with soft floral notes.
The taste is of honey and grainy sweetness that leads to a soft, balancing floral dryness in the finish.
It is smooth and pretty crisp.
A nice, basic pils here.

A bottle that has been sitting in my cellar for awhile but it's my only one so I'm going to count it.
A-Poured into a pint glass this brew is light golden in color with a slight haze noticed. A thin finger of head quickly recedes to a thin film with some nice lacing on the glass.
S-Pilsener malt with a flowery hop aroma with a hint of fruitiness.
T-Big clean barley malt with a flowery, fruity finish. Low bitterness. Sweeter finish than most.
M-Lower prickly carbonation than most pilseners, which helps give a quick finish with low bitterness.
O-A tasty easy to drink pils. I like the low carbonation which makes for a less crisp, low bitter finish. The little bit of fruitiness although not normal for the style gives a nice edge to this beer. Unfortunately I think this beer had been sitting in my cellar for probably 1.5 years so that may have affected it. However, it doesn't have done so in a bad way with oxidation or DMS enhancement. I'll have to compare with a fresh one to see if indeed this beer has changed much.
