Notes / Commercial Description:

Medium bodied,not an overpowering aroma but there's malt,grain/wheat smell. Taste is bitter and cracker /grain but with a bitter finish that lingers

Golden, almost yellow in color. Smell doesn’t give too much away, which for a pilsner is generally a good thing. Tastes surprisingly light considering abv. Also no skunkiness which is often present in beers of this style. Feels light yet substantial. Perfect for a session beer or for relaxing on a Saturday afternoon.

This is a really solid German Pilsner. Ricky head and golden clear pour. Little detectable aroma other pilsener mat scent. Taste is crisp, dry, sweet grainy pils taste. This is a really good drive bling beer.

Its pours a golden straw colour. It has a nice medium sized white frothy head. Its smell is of wheat with a nice floral note. The taste is hoppy but not overly hoppy, it also has a nice dry wheat taste that is very nice. Overall not the best pils I have ever had but definitely not the worst.

Not impressive in any serious capacity. Serviceable for sure, and impressive that Sierra Nevada is able to pack so many flavors into a pilsner, but this beer really misses the mark because of that. There's a distinct funk, something ale-y, and corn. Too much going on. I don't really want more than one unless I'm eating, in which case it's actually quite good.
