Poured aggressively from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Just like with the others from this sampler pack, there is a "Bottled On:" on the label that is blank, but I am assuming it's fresh from the distributor since this was not at my local outlet 2 days ago.
A: Pale straw yellow, very clear and nicely filtered. If I didn't know any better, I'd look at it in a glass and assume it was a macro adjunct lager. 1 finger of fluffy white head with very tight and tiny bubbles, very creamy and respectable in consistency. The head sticks around for a respectable length of time, leaving very little lacing.
S: It lost a lot of points here because I really couldn't smell anything from this beer. It literally has almost zero scent. I caught a very faint aroma of hops and that's about it.
T: This is a great tasting pilsner. It has a very simple flavor, not complex at all, starts off with a light citrusy hoppy pine that seems well balanced with a hint of malts. Strengthens up a bit on the finish with more of the same, leaving a bitter hoppy aftertaste that isn't overly piney.
M: I'm gonna go with medium bodied here, though it is a touch on the lighter side, it does have some body. Light carbonation goes down smooth and creamy.
O: This is a fantastic pilsner right here. Certainly very drinkable and certainly something I'd gladly drink again. I wish there was a little more on the nose, but overall I feel like this beer makes for a pretty solid experience. This would make a really good session beer.

Very light golden color, clear, with good foamy head with dallops.
Nice herbal qualities on the nose, and these hops are enticing indeed. Clean, fresh aroma.
Prominent Saaz on the palate, dry, drinkable, nice balancing malt in there too. Great balance of flavorful yet drinkable. One of the better European style Pilsners on the market from American brewers.
