This pours fairly clear straw green, little head.
smells like lime and skunk a bit. maybe some smoke.
Taste is dry, citrusy and seltzery. that's about it.
Mouthfeel is a bit coarse, but acceptable.
Finish is clean. Refreshing, actually.
Given the combination, I can drink 'em, and have another, but only if they are stuck under my nose. I wouldn't seek this out.
Warning #1: I am not a pilsner fan. This seems fairly typical of a pilsner. Maybe this is what pilsner people like. Since I'm not much of a skunk person, I can't rate this very highly, even if it is supposed to be that way. I just must not get it.
Warning #2: I like darker beers that often taste different or even better warmed up a bit. DON"T DRINK THIS ONE WARM! The skunk really comes up, the mouthfeel goes flat, the taste becomes asprin bitter and the finish is rank. Duh. well, i'm used to being able to drink a beer throughout the temperature ranges, not this one. Ice cold it is at least refreshing, keep it that way.

.5L can into craft pint
A- Light gold, and clear. White head looks good after pour, but doesn't retain well.
S- Sweet malt, a bit of honey. Not much hop aroma.
T- Malt forward, sweet bread. Slight hop snap to balance.
M- Sweet, light, smooth, wet. Easy, easy drink.
O- Sweet pils, lager. It's really nice.
