3.18/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appeared pale yellow, much carbonation, small foamy head, fair amount of lacing.

Smelled of hops with bit of spice

Tasted bitter at first on the back of the tongue. This yields to light malting. A bit of spice noticed as well

Felt pretty balanced

Verdict: not as an aggressive pilsener as I would have liked

reviewed from notes

at first impression a very average easy drinkin pilsner, nothing special. poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. nothing to write home with about this beer, but definatly a decent one. easy drinkin and easy to enjoy. very refreshing but not very complex.

2.98/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

12 ounce brown bottle poured into my shaker glass. Appears a crystal clear golden yellow color with a finger of quickly fading off white foam. Smells and tastes of lightly toasted grains, grass, very mild earthy hops, and a touch of sweet malt. A bit thin bodied with about average carbonation for the style.
