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.

I picked this up at Wegman's in a mix-a-six, poured chilled from the 12oz brown bottle into a glass mug. not sure about the style since the number matches, but the label clearly has "Czech pilsner" on it.

The color is golden with crystal clarity and 2 finger white cap which falls to a thin band of very fine beads. The carbonation is visible rising moderately fast to the surface with a stringy lace pattern on the glass. The smell is very hoppy with some floral and spicy hop aromas. The malt is there in the nose but mostly adds sweetness to the aroma. The feel is pretty full with the malt body and resinous hop textures coming off a little less beefy with the semi-full carbonation with mostly dry finish.

The taste is very pleasant with a decent amount of hops in the taste which are both floral and spicy with a decent amount of pilsner malt contributing a mildly sweet nutty flavor profile with a gentle toast note and yeast is relatively creamy. The flavor of alcohol comes through near the end without any harshness, but it adds to the full taste this pils has, somehow I agree with the Czech pils label even though it is listed as a German Pils here. Overall a pretty decent amount of hops and is very drinkable, not the ideal example of the style, but a tasty lager just the same.

Poured into a pils glass.

4.75 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is pretty good and a thick ring of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Dank grassiness abounds. Grainy and quite floral, I could easily be smelling a flower. Clean with a mild sweetness. Very nice.

3.5 T: Again quite grassy. I can almost feel like I'm chewing grass. Sweeter than the nose suggested, but within good limits. Floral with herbal and earthy hop notes. Something along the lines of lemongrass, but slightly different. A bit doughy as well.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This has a viscous chewiness to it that I rather like. Also good amount of creaminess.

3.75 D: Pretty good beer. I've never thought much of Full Sail and a great pils is just the way to start changing my mind.
