on tap at Maumee Bay brewpub in Toledo.
This light golden pilsner looks as it should and has no major flaws. However, I found it a bit under-hopped and a tad sweet. This had more effect on the aroma, which reflected way more malt than hops. The particular mix(?) of hops (Noble?) seems appropriate.

Medium-light body with medium carbonation.

Pours a nice-looking pilsner. A straw-yellow color with a nice thick white head that laces nicely.
Smell is not good. A bit of strong wheat smell and almost a skunk hop smell too.
Taste is not much better than the smell. A biscuit taste with a bit of bad hop as well.
Mouthfeel is okay. An okay thickness, but nothing spectacular.
Drinkability is good. A balanced beer, but nothing going on that would make one want to drink a lot of these. Eh...

My parents brought some Buckeye Sparkling Dry Premium Beer from Ohio. The beer pours a clear yellow color with a thin white head. The smell is slight grain sweet with slight Saaz hop kick. The taste follows the smell...is grainy and Saaz hop being present. The mouthfeel is light in body and good carbonation. Overall the beer is decent and easy drinking. It is alot like Pilsner Urquel.
