Clear yellow with a half-finger of white head. Typical floral hops and biscuity malts in the nose. Decent hop bitterness for the style, fairly crisp, could benefit from a touch more malt profile. A fine, middle-of-the-road pils.

I had this the day after a National Bohemian. Very similar products: below-average lagers. Craft brewers can do better.

12 oz. brown bottle to a small pilsner glass
pkg on 05/28/14
A: Clear straw yellow. minimal head and retention. Nice amount of carbonation. Minimal lace.
S: Grains. Corn? Malts. A veg. note maybe.
T: Crisp, malty with still a vegetal (sort of cabbage-like) taste. A bit of cracker underneath.
Unusual and maybe not in such a good way.
M: Good average carbonation. Light watery but still crisp body. Easy drinking. Not enough to save this beer from being below average.
O: Disappointing. Not bad but this sort of wtf taste catches you off guard. Unfortunately there's not much else I can discern in the flavor. The unusual and not altogether pleasant veggie sharpness dominates. Will not purchase again.
