12 fl oz brown glass bottle with twist-off pressure cap served into a Uinta brewing glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Acquired at a Trader Joe's for somewhere between 1 and 2 dollars. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a four finger beige head of decent cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Colour is a light pale yellow. Transparent and translucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Not extraordinarily vibrant. Pretty standard for the style.

Sm: Dry malts and generic floral hopping - I'd guess saaz or spalt. Straw. Generic barley. An average strength aroma. This is shaping up to be pretty meh.

T: Straw and barley form the foundation, with minimal specialty malts coming through. Background floral hopping is hardly noticeable. Obscenely simple. Boring and bland. Not at all subtle. Very meh.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some increased coarseness and dryness in the third act. Light. Too thick for the lack of flavour.

Dr: Drinkable but boring and bland. I wouldn't bother with this again. Another mediocre offering from Full Sail. Why brew this? If I wanted affordable pasasable garbage, I'd buy Simpler Times pilsner.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light fizzy head, reinforced by many bubbles rising from the etch at teh bottom, bit of lacing, over brilliantly clear pilsner tan colored beer.

Nose is typical pils, light toasty pilsner malt, little hay, hint of straw, touch of soft lager, just a bit of grassy hops.

Taste has a bit more than the nose, more in the toasty pilsner malt, some straw and light hay, light soft layered lager malt flavors and a crisp lager flavor, touch of sweetness. Light bitterness with some grassy and slightly earthy hops. Finish is dry and crisp, more light grassy and slight herbal hops, bit more lager flavors with light hay.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, decent carb.

overall not bad, decent pilsner flavors, lighter on the hops but tasty and drinkable, although overall a bit lighter than I expected.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bright, crystal-clear golden body with a rich, thick white head. Aroma is mild, grass-like, perhaps slightly musty with a nearly hidden sense of mild malt grain in the background. Taste brings out a decent cereal-like flavor with a nicely balanced soft bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, soft, clean and crisp.

A good, slightly above average pilsner. Nothing extraordinary, but a satisfying thirst quencher.

This is an okay pils. That is the first thing that hit my mind when I tried it. A bit too bright and somewhat tangy. Seems like the edges need rounded out. It's a decent beer, but it doesn't really do much for me. I tried it, ticked it, and now I'm moving on.

This just showed up in Casper and yet, the bottling date I found, after I bought it, is stamped 09 09 11. Hmmm.

Big head of foam on this straw gold coloured brew.

It has a good hoppy aroma, very Pils like, with some graininess. Basic.

Pretty nice crisp hoppy flavour here, light malt sweetness, and a touch of grain. Easy drinking and surprisingly good after the big disappointment with how old this is. A fresh bottle would have been pretty impressive, me thinks.
