3.58/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a clean finish with no lingering flavors. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good pilsner. Well balanced malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A bit bland on character, but not watery. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

2.46/5  rDev -25.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.
