16.9oz : Pilsner glass
from notes.

Clear golden, foamy white head.

Grassy, lightly sweet crackery malts.

Medium body, fizzy, foamy carbonation and a crisp finish.

An enjoyable pilsner. Somewhat subtle flavor notes overall, but that is expected from the style and these were well done in this one.

Bought this at the Wegmans so as far as freshness...unk.
Drinks good. I used to buy this by the case until I started reviewing beers. this particular beer was refreshing but had a bit of cloying in it's flavor.
The golden color was very clear mild carbonation and a thin head.
The aroma smelled nice. Tart and spicy from saaz hops I'm sure but light and not very assertive.
The taste was loike the nose. Sharp and malty with a fairly desent hop taste. Hops are spicy and tart.
Drinks pretty smooth with a dry and semi bitter finish.
A good beer well made and simple.
