look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Very yellow beer with rich smells of Pilsener malt with some hop floral fruitiness. Not that much of a bite and hop spice on the initial sip but it the hop bite builds up on the tongue and leaves with a nice earthy sharp hop bitterness but not too much at all. The sweetness from the bready pilsener malt comes in to perfectly balance it.

Although I would have wanted a crisper hop bite up front it still has enough of earthy floral bitterness until the sweetness from the Pilsener malt seems to come in out of nowhere and really balance it. This is my favorite thing about this beer even with it being a general straight forward offering. The fruitiness builds from the yeast strain and from some of the hops although the hops give more of an earthy Noble hop taste more than anything. While not quite as good as the Prima Pils or Dogfish Heads My Antonia I still like this one better than European Pilseners.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Clean, pale gold beer pours from the glass, leaving a thin, off-white head that is well-retained. Pils malt lends typical aromas of bread and dough, with hints of grain and grass noticeable, and a decent amount of spicy hops as well. Bready flavors are met with grain and barley. The malt sweetness is tamed by the grassy and spicy hops in the finish. Light bodied, this pilsener is also moderately carbonated.
