I purchased this at Giant, consumed chilled in a tulip shared with tenderbranson69.

The appearance is tarnished hazed gold with thick creamy white head with copious lace. The smell is off -very vegetal..like cooked green beans or cabbage, not good. The feel is just as bad if not worse -creamy low bitterness moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish yet slightly buttery smoothness.

The flavor is not only bad it is offensive to the originators of the pilsner style, very vegetal taste lots of dms and a light toast accent...not much hop flavor but a little yeast adding some sulfury taste to the mix. Overall this beer should be seriously avoided if not removed from the market since it is obviously flawed in many ways. I suggest if you like your taste buds don't make the same mistake I did.
