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.
