Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is a bit malty, a touch of sweetness. Taste is malts, some grains, mild bitterness at the finish. Refreshing but kind of mild. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Bottle into pint glass.
Very fresh and light colored golden pilsner with solid carbonation and a nice snow white head that stuck around for a while.
Smell was a bit thin, you could tell this is more lager than Pilsner. Didn't get any hop smell at all.
Smooth mouthfeel and the right level of carbonation, but the beer was a bit light and sweet to my taste. Thought this might be a bit more German tasting than American lager.
Good, but not one I'll repeat.

Poured a nice clear yellow with very little white head. Looks pretty good for a pilsner. Scents of lager yeast and crystal malt. Smells excellent. Flavor is crystal malt, fruity hops with a lot of stone fruit, apricot mostly, some citrus, moderate malt sweetness and a moderate level of hop bitterness, and a nice cracker aftertaste. A very good taste, a bit dry, and a nice malt backbone to the beer. Very much a Czech pilsner. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall a pretty good pilsner, nice easy drinking on a summer day, recommended.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to a ring around the glass. Mild aroma of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Flavor is biscuit, crackery malt with hints of toasted malt, quite dry pilsner style hops. The grassy hops are to style, but are not balanced with lighter floral notes. Light bodied. A reasonable, but somewhat pedestrian pilsner that would appeal to those who like the the dry end of the pilsner spectrum.

Clear, brassy yellow with a foamy, white head.

Grassy, lightly spicy hop profiles with a solid, malty bread backbone.

Medium+ body, with foamy carbonation.

A well done pilsener, nice hop presence and a solid malt backing.
