look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

a- bottle poured into a tasting glass, one finger of head that fades gradually leaving behind some lace, straw coloring.

s- flight alcohol, a bit of grain, slight citrus, not a whole lot to the nose.

t- alcohol perceived, some grain, very light light. not a whole lot here either, light noble hop bitterness that lingers a little, light citrus.

m- thin in the mouth, could be better.

d- only, glad to have tried this but i think that this is a one and done beer.

Good beer, but I don't know how they can call this a pilsner.

A: Beautiful golden yellow, but it looks like a pale ale, not a pils.

S: Sweet and fruity, not what you would expect from a pils. Little hop nose. As it warms, alcohol very apparent. Smells a bit like vodka.

T: Pretty well balanced, a bit on the sweet side. Very ale-like. Or maybe like a bock. But pils?

M/D: Easily burned through a 6 pack, but probably would not buy again

This beer is in style-limbo. Definitely not your normal pils, much closer to a very tame pale ale or a hoppy bock.
