Poured a crystal clear amber with nice head. Aroma of toasted bread with some floral-ness from Hallertau hops. Well balanced flavor of malt complexity toasted grain with a hint of sweetness from the malt. Just enough bitterness to balance. Very smooth, a great session beer!

Poured into a pint glass, the beer gave a generous white head on top of its gold color. A mild aroma was present which would best be described as malty. The initial taste was slightly hoppy with a smooth but slight wheat flavor. Made in the style of a pilsener, there is not going to be anything to knock the socks off of most beer drinkers aside from the smoothness. It is a gateway type beer for non-craft beer drinking. It is certainly better than a macro. The middle of the road feeling I get from this beer makes me miss New Glarus Stone Soup.

poured into a pint glass

appearance: dark amber with a 1" white foamy head

aroma: soft nose of cider/apple and yeast

palate: oh so smooth. light carbonation, milky sweet and medium bodied. goes down very nicely

taste: great pilsener flavors with some light fruity backgrounds

overall: honestly, im not a huge fan of pilsener styles, but i can recognize quality when i come across it. this is a great brew and a solid choice at any time. goes down very easy, but enough flavor to satisfy. another great one by NG!

This pours a nice clear amber with a tight half inch of eggshell head that has endurance and pretty good cling. Great malt quality to the nose, with a nice roastiness that's tempered by some hop zest and a bit of sweetness. The taste has nice complexity while remaining straightforward and very drinkable. The malts really pop at the front, with just a hint of sourness lingering around the edges. The hops take over in the second half, providing some brightness and just a bit of bitter at the close. Very nicely balanced. The mouthfeel is great for a beer of this style--a heavier body is complemented by nice carbonation. This one is creamy and clean.

This beer has been growing on me since I first tried it in a sampler pack a few months ago. Definitely one of the best traditional pilseners I've ever had. It's amusing to take a drink of Miller Lite and follow it with this, by the way. Interestingly enough, I've also found that a good many steady BMC drinkers really enjoy this beer, so you might think of buying your non-craft-drinking buddy a sixer of this sometime.
