I've had this a few times now, and I know the reviews haven't been stellar but dang I'm enjoying this one.
Looks great with its golden cloudy appearance and its white head that leaves a touch of lacing.
Smell is almost the best part, the fruity characters that come through are awesome. Also leads to some of the malty ness that comes through more in the taste. But mostly just Fruit!
Tastes like the fruity smell mixed with a pancake. Quite pleasant, and drinkable. The malty favors come through on the back end but their still very subtle. As with any pilsner the palate has to be very clean to taste the subtle flavors they offer.
Mouthfeel is a bit overly light, I wouldn't mind some thickness on this one since i do feel its a bit sweet.
Overall I feel it's a fantastic pilsner, and probably my favorite Erie brewing brew.

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.
