3.08/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, with a small, dense white head, thick patchy lacing, and modest streams of small, slow rising bubbles.

Aroma: Notes of noble hops and pale malt. The "cracker malt" often noted in the Pilsener style seems absent.

Taste: Opens with mildly sweet malt notes, a little sweeter than I would expect for a Pilsener. A wave of pleasant grassy, spicy hops follows. The slightly sweet undercurrent of the malt carries throughout the taste. Finishes with a bit of mild bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth and pleasant, fairly soft.

Drinkability/notes: Not bad, overall, but as others have notes, more like a Euro pale lager than a Pilsener. Its certainly not bad, but not outstanding, either. But on a hot summer day, its just fine.

Presentation: Packaged in an 11.2 ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.

Serving type: bottle

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.
