2.84/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle.

Pours a nice clear golden straw color. White foamy head that dissipates quickly. A little lacing.

Smells of breed and a little hops, perhaps a hint of corn.

Hop notes up front, some metallic hints, finishes dry with a little metallic after taste.

Mouthfeel is good. Has some dry sides to it after the hops blast.

I'd heard some good things about Karl Strauss, but compared to the many German Pils I've had, this one disappointed me.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07.

Slightly cloudy and pale yellow, nice head and lacing. Sweet toast aroma. Flavor is slightly roasty with wheat bread toast notes. Finish has what, in my experience, is a signature pilsener corn flavor.

One of the better microbrew pilseners I have had, though not outstanding.

A - Poured a clear golden color with a white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is mostly of grainy malt

T - Follows the nose with sweet grainy malt

M - This beer has a lighter body with higher carbonation to it

D - Overall this is a decent pilsener but nothing to make me say its better than your average pilsener worth getting if your a BMC drinker
