golden color, fairly clear, decent sized white head, creamy and with some retention. Leaves behind some lace.
big malt aroma, and a slight hint of alcohol(?) Hop aroma if present is subdued, and overall aroma is very slight.
Simple, sweet malt flavor initially, hop bitterness sufficient to balance out the malt, but stays relatively malty. Slightly medicinal flavor midmouth and beyond - some weird alcohol/hop interplay? Finishes very slightly fruity. Lacks the sharp/clean profile of a pilsner...possibly the price of it being an uber pils!
Med-full body, and medium carbonation. Only the slightest hint of alcohol warming, and no astringency.
If you are looking for a big, American-made lager, here you go. Sufficiently neutral flavor profile to be very drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
