WOW!!! This beer is driven by grain....no question!!!! The color is yellow and clear with thin white head. The scent is grain. The taste is a very sharp grain...I mean no question. Its hard to be smooth when you are this sharp. Mouthfeel is tough....would not order this again.

Straw hue, just a touch of haze. Thin head. Grassy Saaz hop nose. Moderate hop bitternss, light malt body and a bit thin. Crisp, dry, grainy and mildly spicy finish. It definitely lacks the malt nuances that a good pilsner has and borderlined on the bland side. An okay pilsner, but the overall innocuousness makes this a drinkable brew.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow color, some carbonation, nice head, lots of lacing afterwards.

S - Scents of sweet malts, yeast.

T - The taste is very nice for a pils, kinda sweet with a slight bitter aftertaste.

M - Medium body.

D - Drinkable. This is a very nice pilsner. I'm not a big fan of pils, but this was re-freshing. Would definitely recommend.

Wow. The first two reviews on this beer are not what I experienced with this beer. Maybe the recipe changed, maybe I just suck at knowing what a good pilsner is.

The color is a clear yellow with no head. The nose is touched with some honey-like sweetness and a touch of hop to balance things out. The flavor is balanced between the sweetness and a nice bitter hop finish. Not a bad beer at all. The feel is thin to moderate, what I would expect it to be. For a pilsner, this is not a bad beer at all. Its not my favorite style, but this was a good offering.
