bought two cans, dumped one on some brats and the other into my gullet. pours a clear yellow/gold with a nice little white head thats now a tiny ring, some bits of lacing left. smells like bits of bready pilsner malts and a really nice grassy, earthy hop profile. taste is the same, a real nice balance of bread/cracker malt and earthy and bitter hops. super crisp and refreshing, goes down smoother than a marvin gaye track and leaves a nice bitterness with you. seems like the kinda beer i'd grab when heading to the back porch, or making brats

The beer is a straw color with a thick and foamy head. The smell is hoppy but very mild. Just smells like fresh. The taste is very similar. The beer just tastes so good and drinkable. I should drink this beer all summer.

12oz bottle poured straight into my mouth..

Uhh.. this is my first and only straight numbers without explanation rating.. so forgive me..

This beer was so damn good.. I didn't stop to grab a glass and take notes. But this Pilsner is amazing and dangerously crush-able.. will buy again.. and re-rate..

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.
