After hearing some discussion on this beer I decided to pick some up. Decided to go with cans as I felt that they would probably have held up a little better over time and distance. The brew pours to a nice golden color with a thick frothy white head that had great retention and left a nice amount of lacing. Carbonation is good as bubbles are flowing up from the bottom of the glass. Nice aroma, grainy malt scent with some slight hops that seem to give off lemon and a slightly medicine smell. The flavor is good, seems to be a refreshing brew, nice real summer brew because of the lightness, crispness, carbonation and sweet malt and lemon flavors from the hops. I am glad that I picked this brew up, nice to get a understanding of what a Pilsner should be, will be one that I will try to get friends to try this as I think this could be a nice break from some of the macro stuff that they insist on. As far as drinkability, on a warm day I could really have a number of these, especially at the 4.8% ABV, they go down very easily.

Pours a clear straw with plenty of effervescence. There is not quite a finger of head and it dissipates into nothingness very quickly. The nose has the distinct notes of pilsner malt. The flavor profile follows the nose. The body is light and the finish is clean, crisp, dry and bitter.

This is an enjoyable brew but not quite among the best of this style.
