A-Yellow and honey-like color. Bubbles continually rise from the bottom to the surface keeping a small head.

S-Has a hint of honey.

T-The taste takes your mouth on a ride from bitterness to a smooth honey-like flavor.

M-Empty but fulfilling.

O-If you want a pilsner that has a decent flavor I would highly suggest this one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear golden color with rising bubbles to a bubbly white head. The head settles out quickly to a thin layer.
A: Clean pilsner malt, light biscuits, fresh grain husks, light vegetal notes and a spicy hop presence.
T: Light roasted malt, husky grains, flaky biscuits and some herbal and peppery hops round out this beer. Classic pilsner dry finish.
M: crisp carbonation and light body with a dry finish.
O: Great representation of the style. Can imagine my grandfather drinking beer like this back in his Homeland Germany. Goes down easy.

It is not a bad drink, but it is not what it claims to be. It tastes more like a pale ale than a pilsener. It is not a German pilsener, but more like a Sierra Nevada Pale. I like Stoudts products, but i do not like it when companies get so creative that they lose the intrinsic flavour of the type of beer they are wanting to produce.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pale golden straw; effervescent; big frothy white head, long lasting

Smell: sweet malt; light citrus with notes of cut grass

Taste: smooth, juicy malt with good balance of hops; very good Saaz flavor; leaves a crisp, slightly dry, hoppy finish

Mouthfeel: light bodied and zippy

Remarks: Well balanced and smooth; Pils isn't my favorite style, but this was pretty tasty; hops were kept in check to my tastes pretty well
