pours a crystal clear rich yellow with a big bubble white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a decent lacing.
Smells pleasantly crackery and biscuity with just enough little bitter hop bite.
taste starts sharp and eases into a clean crisp malty finish. some light fruitiness in the middle but a largely uncomplicated and easy drinking brew.
Mouthfeel is wonderful, light and appropriately crisp. the full flavor makes its way across your tongue and cleans up before it leaves.
Overall this is a really nice american pilsner. Super drinkable super smooth lovely taste lovely all around.

12-oz. tall can CANNED ON 09 JUL 18 needed a stern pour to get a 1/2 finger sized short lived egg shell white head with ridges of lacing, a ring lasts on.
Clear golden straw appears yellow in front of light. A few fizzy bubbles rise along the edges.
Lager yeast, sweet malt, floral hops and some spice greet the nose.
A tangy citrus peel flavor begins the taste as semi-sweet malt and abundant carbonation rounds out the middle with an apple juice sweetness . Floral and bitter hops return at the clean semi-dry finish. A faint peppery/spicy aftertaste lingers a bit.
Bigger than light bodied from the malt, smooth and CRISP. Alcohol is hidden.
Balanced and easy on the eyes and palate, perfect for football and pairs well with almost any food.

A very nice snappy pilsner. "Crisp" is an excellent description of this brew. Great super cold and goes well while sipping a brandy or bourbon on the side. Highly recommend.

Was in the mood for a pilsner and noticed I hadn't tried this one yet. Crystal clear golden color with abundant carbonation. I didn't get much of a head and only got minimal residual lacing. A little more citrus on the nose than I was expecting. Taste also has a bit more of a citrus note than I was expecting, but it mixes well with those traditional Noble hop flavors. Overall, a really solid pilsner that I would seek out again.

This has been my favorite go-to everyday beer for a long time.
Just don't get tired of it.
Reminds me of beer-garden beer in Bavaria.

Clear gold , orange color. Close to a medium body, with about medium carbonation which adds up to a nice feel .
Aroma was floral hops, cereal, grain, yeast, and some malt.
Taste was similar to aroma. Was more bitter than the aroma hinted at but excessive and there was malt to balance it out. Was a little dry, bitter, but very flavorful and easy to have more than one.
This would have made a great summertime beer but could easily be enjoyed year round

Pours out a medium clear gold color. The head is off-white and dense with awesome retention. There is a good amount of sticky lacing to boot.

The floral with a hint of citrus and grains. Smells great. Its easy to pick out each individual quality without having to dig to much. Also very aromatic.

The taste bitter floral and citrus. Sweet citrus notes. Grains come through nicely. Everything meshes well together.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Carbonation is summer time like.
