A very average pilsner. A bit sweet and too much corn aromas for me to want to try it again.

Full notes taken to my phone at Mather Campground, Grand Caynon National Park, AZ. Probably the third can out of the six pack.

A- 12oz can poured into a goblet with a pale golden body with just a bit of haziness. The crown on the beer is white, about half a finger high and foamy textured. Fair hwsd retention and just a bit of spotty lace.

S- Lager yeast driven with a good helping of hops as well. White grapes, lemon zest, apple and some bread as well as some lager funk. Spicy noble hops round it out.

T- Follows the nose almost exactly with strong lager yeast balanced out by hops in the finish. Strong grape and apple fruit esters with some spice and zesty lemon feel. Noble spicy and herbal hop notes come in big in the after taste. Lager yeast a bit too strong as some off flavors seem to arise.

MF- Light bodied with a fairly high carbonation that brings on a crisp feel and accentuates the foamy texture. Somewhat bitter on the back end.

A solid Pilsner for an American made one but doesn't stand up to the greats. The lager yeast seems a bit strained and it shows in the aroma and flavor. Its just not as clean and smooth as other examples but is still fairly solid and I enjoy the hop level.

From a can, pours a super carbonated pale yellow color with a big white head.

The aroma is light malt, wheat, earthy and herbal. It smells very basic, simple, orchestrated. The flavor is similar, floral, herbs, light malt, a little lemon, citrus zest. The hop content could be stronger. This isn't as cutting as other German Pilsener's I have had, which makes it more palatable, smoother consumption. Very drinkable, clean and crisp.

A bit cloudy for a pilsner. It has almost no smell, though it's a pilsner and shouldn't be expected to have much of one. The color it just right otherwise.
Out of the can, the flavor profile is a little tinny, but becomes relatively smooth when poured into a glass. Drunk that way it is probably just about what a good pilsner should be.
