I was excited to try this beer. Got it @ Whole Foods tonight. Honestly I am a bit disappointed as this doesn't stand out much from a macro pils to me. Part of it is that I am not a huge pils fan to begin with, but when reviewing it objectively I would not prefer this much over a PBR. It has a bit of a bitter taste to it. The smell is pretty good, not skunky. This mouthfeel is generally smooth and not a turn off. Overall this is NOT a bad beer, and I could throw a few back and enjoy. But it is clearly average in my opinion.

On tap into a 16 oz pint glass

A - Bright yellow with an inviting activity level. SLightly hazy almost zero head
S - Bitter hops cut with buttery cake batter
T - Sweetness becomes a bit more pronounced and balances nicely with the oily, bitter hops. Nicely balanced
M - A bit sticky on the tongue
O - Seems a bit more pale lager than pilsener but none the less good drinking. Went great with the SF oysters and little neck chowder
