12oz bottle, not date. Pours a pale golden color with a four-finger white head, showing decent retention and spotty lacing.
The aroma is dominated by grain, along with some sulpher, and a little hoppy herbiness. The delivers the grain, a lemony oily-ness, but some more hops might be nice.
It's light bodied with good carbonation, crisp and refreshing. It has a nice dry finish, but a little more hops on the end would add some depth. Very drinkable, but overall, it's a slighlty above average pils.

Appearance - About as good as most other pilsners. Golden appearance, good carbonation going on. Just enough lacing on the head to remind us that it's a pilsner.
Smell - Just by smelling this beer one can tell it is not your typical pils. Erie obviously like the malts and the aroma of this beer drives it home. Very malty with extremely subtle spice notes. A nice forewarning that this is not your average budweiser or pilsner urquel
Taste - Relatively sweet for a pilsner, but not overwhelming. A whole lot of malty, yeasty sweetness up front then the flavors almost evaporate from your palate. A completely unique attempt at a pilsner. I know many other BA's have shot the beer down due to its lack of hoppiness or dry finish but I honestly find this beer refreshing.
Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is just as good as any other pilsner. Very light and not hard to gulp down at all.
Overall - The aroma sets you back for a pilsner. I completely understand how some palates can be confused by this effort. However It's nice to have a pilsner that isn't a copy paste of everything else on the market. Extremely flavorful and drinkable, for that reason alone I give it
a good to very good score.
