Not a bad pils with quite a dry hoppy finish which sets it apart from many craft lagers which tend to be sweeter. Not on the same level as prima pils but decent enough to drink when the weather gets warm. Much prefer the stein beer as a lager from these guys

Wildly different from other Pils, more body, more odd flavors, I opened an IPA for my family and this for me wanting a light brew, and for a moment, I didnt know what I was drinking. But then, malty, bready, crackerly brew got to me and I enjoyed it. 100% agree w reviewer who said "turn it into a BLONDE ALE", that's more what it is.

A - Pours a slight hazed, golden/yellow color with a foamy, two-finger white head. No lacing.

S - Subtle, not much here, but smells of grains and sweet floral notes.

T - It tasted fairly sweet, lots of bread. Was very good with cheese and mozzarella tomatoes with basil. Would be good with salad and as a pre-dinner beer, which was the case tonight. Included light grassy hops that made the finish nice.

M -Not right for a pils, more medium weight body. But I liked it, just change the style please.

O - I'd drink another. Might want to try. Reviewers overly ding this beer for being off-style, but it's a nice middle of the road blonde ale with an appetizing finish.

It's original, not cliché.

A different representation of the Pilsner style, more American than German, due to its medium amount of alcohol and little bitterness.

Poured a dark straw color into a tall pilsner glass, with 1 inch head hanging around a while with very little lacing.

Smelled grainy and fresh and was crisp and smooth to drink, with more of a malt character than hop.

Drinkable and thirst quenching, leaving me ready for more. Far surpasses other American brewed pilsners in its fuller body.

Odd flavor profile here. Sweet corn with lots of fruity esters. Some tarty flavors and a floral hop bite. Malt seems to dominate the base but the hop flavors really come out sharply. In the end I'm left thinking about the hops but they just don't really fit with the malty body. I guess this is all malt but it seems a bit adjuncty. Finish doesn't quite have the bite I want but leaves a slightly dry, bitter flavor that makes me want to take another sip. Decent, different, I don't know if I'd want it again.
