A: Crisp, crystal clear beer with maybe a finger's worth of white head. There looks to be a lot of carbonation going on as bubbles rise from all sides of the glass initially, then settle down to just coming from the bottom. There is a decent amount of lacing left on the edges of the glass.

S: Crystal malts bring a good deal of sweetness to the aroma, and it is also quite grainy. A slight bit of floral notes work together with a lemon zest brightness to make this smell like a nice beer.

T: Bready notes up front are tempered by a slight taste of white grapes before the hops kick in with a heavy floral taste. The hops bring a really nice bitterness and crispness that balances the sweet really well.

M: Crisp, moderately light with a decent amount of carbonation. There is a slight slickness to this beer, but also a stickiness in the back of the throat.

O: There is a plethora of mediocre, forgettable and just plain bad pilsners out there, but this isn't one of them. It is well balanced, has enough body and flavor that I know I'm drinking a real beer. Definitely a worthwhile summer brew.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. A lot of white-colored head is formed, at around two fingers high. Retention is pretty solid, with webs of lacing being left on the glass.

S: There's definitely Saaz in here - that grassiness is unmistakable. As it opens up slightly, a gentle fruity sweetness appears. Crackery malts and mild diacetyl appear throughout. It doesn't set the world on fire aromatically, but it hits my preferences for a pilsner really well.

T: It starts with a mild malt sweetness, while the finish is pretty much Saaz grassiness. It goes down superbly, plain and simple. Still, some of the bitterness could be balanced out better, and some of the malts could be - if not richer - more defined in flavor.

M: Really damn crisp and light. It really is effortless, and it doesn't rely on excess carbonation to get the job done. The feel itself is nicely balanced - not too sweet nor too biting.

O: Nothing special, but wow is it easy to drink. I could easily drink a six pack, so something right was done here. Still, it's far from my favorite pilsner.

Payed a $1.59 for a single bottle. I bought it because it was from a local micro-brewery I've never heard of. Really not much of an opinion on this one. Drank it at 3 PM as a Saturday afternoon / evening starter. Would I buy it again, most likely not. Not bad, but really nothing special. I'd would definitely stick with the Sierra Nevada Summer Fest over this one.

This beer poured out a clear gold yellow colour, and had a mainly malty nose with floral hops. The smell slightly reminded me of a barley wine. This beer seemed malty for a pilsner, and I could also taste those floral hops I smelled earlier. The flavors were overall bright and good, but did not fit my construct of a pilsner.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.
