Fairly nice pilsner here, but a bit on the softer side for a German style one. Pours golden with a fairly light head but a constant stream of bubbles. Light earthy biterrness in the aroma as well a a dose of lager yeast a bit of slightly sour graininess. A little bit bready tasting and with more of that sam earthy bitterness and slight grainy sourness. Fairly smooth, but on the softer, heavier side for a pilsner. Pretty decent, but it could use a bit more snap.

Had this beer in the back of fridge since I bought it, summer time IIRC, the last of a 6 pack. Gold with white head leaving scattered lace.

Smell is sweet cereals and overripe herbal hops. This beer has declined quite a bit in this department, it had a really zippy punch of nobles when fresh, and didn't come off nearly as sweet.

Taste pretty much the same, although the bitterness of the hops has stood up to the malt sweetness better in the taste, it's still over the hill, as a heads up for the traders of the world. Not bad, but just not the original character, more cloying, generic sugar pops lager now.

Mouthfeel is a bit cloying, medium bodied. While not flaccid at this point, it's getting there, certainly compared to the crispness I remember from when it was fresh.

Drinkability is not as good, again, this one is over the hill, making it a bit too sweet and one dimensional for my taste, but it's smooth and the alcohol is hidden. Since I really enjoyed the first 5 (and didn't age this in the fridge on purpose, it just got lost), I'm bumping up all scores 1/2 point from how it's showing today, which is probably conservative.

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.

In BC every brewer has a beer like this , a decent lager that treads the waters between pils and domestic lage. In Washington it seems that very few lagers are available year round and so we have a LTD beer from Full Sail. Nice and crisp with decent hops but nothing to rock your world. Put in a can and make it year round rather than issue it as a special edition beer.
