3.38/5 rDev +0.6%
Poured from an inch or so above the glass gave me a small to medium sized white head above a clear golden colored beer.
A very light hops with maybe a bit of grain malt in the aroma.
The taste has more malts coming through with about the same amount of the subdued hops remaining.
A light bodied beer with a light mellowing aftertaste.
This beer is what I think they make to pacify the Bud and Miller drinkers and I think this beer is better than anything those two make.

Had on tap at the San Diego Airport's Karl Strauss.
Beer pours a nice golden color without much head at all.
No real smells to detect other than a slight bit of bready yeast.
Beer has a very crisp flavor with a bit of hop bitterness, but not very much.
Very crisp and full of carbonation flavor.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a N'ice Chouffe beer flute glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are mediocre.
A: Pours a half finger head of no cream, bad thickness, and terrible retention. Colour is a clear yellow-gold.
Sm: Malt, straw, and stale cream. A mild strength aroma.
T: Quite malty, with stale cream and some straw. Simple and bland. It doesn't taste good - that's for damned sure. What were they thinking? A wretched pilsner. Imbalanced and badly built.
Mf: Smooth and wet, but entirely too thick for the style and flavours.
Dr: Hard to drink because it tastes so bad. It's really an awful take on the pilsner style. It might be better on draught, but as is I have no plans to try this again anytime soon.

On tap at Karl Strauss.
A: Burnished gold with a large white sea foam head. Much lighter in color than, say, a coy fish, which is more of a majestic orange rather than light gold and transparent. Another aptly named beer.
S: Biscuit, grain, and toasted bread blend with a light noble hop presence that's floral and somewhat grassy.
T: Grainy with light toasted notes and a low bitterness. This is very clean. Elegant and innocent in its simplicity.
M: Light in body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry and crisp.
Overall: This grew on me. It's another somewhat simple but well executed beer that a man could drink pitchers of if afforded a comfortable seat with an advantageous view.

3.18/5 rDev -5.4%
A: Medium golden color w/ less than half finger of head.
S: Lots of light wheat. Some good hints of banana aroma
T: Lager yeasts adds nice banana flavor. Very light/crisp malt. Very light bread taste. Little bit of hops at end but not that much.
M: Low in carb, disappointing
O: Its just alright. Had some highlights and lowlights. Wouldn't be the first of its type I'd grab, but also not the last either.
