I have read the other reviews about this beer and I am scratching my head. It almost seemed more like a light beer or light Ale than a Pilsner. My guess there are too many Ale drinkers rating this.

Pours light golden in color. Approximately a finger width head poured into a beer glass. Not a fan of this, reminds me of a bud lite with less carbonation, tastes like a Hamms. Does not taste like a Pilsner at all to me at least in the sense I am used to. Nothing special about this at all, and I can get cheaper beers that taste the same.

Hard to get excited about. Solid but unspectacular.

Just ok. Not a lot of hop character

Appearance: Clear yellow-gold, ok head.

Smell: Pears, sweetness.

Taste: Sweet and fruity, lots of apple and pear flavor. Slick and syrupy feel.

Overall: I like craft pilsners but this one missed the mark for me. Flavors leaned too far into malt liquor territory. It reminded me of Grain Belt Premo, which I also don't like. Tried both on tap and in cans, was actually worse on tap.

A good, if unremarkable, lager. Good for the deck on a warm afternoon. Easy to drink, very pale. It could use a little more carbonation.

This is a rather nice middle of the road Pilsner. I generally prefer a little more hoppiness, but this is really solid and balanced. A great summer tipple.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop beer glass. It's very light colored and clear with a one finger white head. It's a nice taste but I don't taste the apple that others taste. I'd prefer a bit more carbonation. I'd buy it again though. It would be a good summer beer and a good one to keep on hand for others who don't like their beers as chewy as I do.
