Pour from a bottle. Slightly darker-than-straw yellow color. About a finger of head, fairly long lasting. Lacing noted down the glass.

Smell is pleasant. Hoppy and sweet. Very nice.

Initial taste is slightly astringency. Subsequent sips become more pleasant. Fairly balanced hop and malt characteristics. Neutral mouthfeel, goes well with style.

Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing special either.

Rather straight forward and simple. Won't Stand out. Also was rather surprising how easy to drink and enjoy it was. While I may never seek it out again for me. May make a great 'gateway' beer for an adjunct drinker. I have I thing great to say about it and nothing bad~

Nice golden body with a thick, sticky, white head; nice rings and globs of foam remain on the glass after every drink. Warm, grainy aroma; old hay and straw. Flavor exudes a light, cereal-like character; toasty with biscuit tones; mild hop bitterness at the finish. Light, crisp, clean and dry finish.

A very good, malt-forward pilsner. Easy to drink with good balance and decent complexity. There is a brightness and crispness to the beer, overall, along with a gentle warmth yet still remains light and refreshing.

3.14/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

App: Typically clear lager with thin head and strong bubbles. A little darker than other pilsners, but not so much as a pale ale.
Smell: Grainy and sweet, with a slight skunkiness that is common in many import lagers. Slight bready like yeast presence. Mild aroma of freshly cut grass. Nothing super exciting.
Taste: Well balanced flavors of both malt and hops with neither being overbearing or unpleasant. Normal, everyday pils that neither excites nor disappoints. Slight bitter skunky taste on the sides and back of tongue. Lingering bitterness. Very easy to drink.
Mouth: Heavily carbonated as most pilsners. Light and effervescent on the tongue. Lighter in terms of body.
