Poured the usual pils-golden. It had a solid grassy malt smell and flavor, and finished with the same decent maltiness as well. It had a decent medium-low body. It was decently drinkable. Overall a very average pilsner-- I'd try their bock or ipa (or their "seasonal", which isn't their own beer) instead. Pretty "meh".

A: Pale yellow in the glass, clear and very transparent. Wispy pure white head shows spotty lacing from a thinnish ring resting on top.
S & T: A slight sweetness is balanced by floral and almost grassy hops. Good balance, neither too sweet not too bitter but enough hops character to be interesting.
M: Appropriately light, crisp and, perhaps most importantly, clean. Finishes semi-dry. Maybe leaning thin, even for a cream ale, but just.

I had this as a part of a Blue Tractor sampler, which is by far the best sampler in Ann Arbor...This pours a light straw gold with a decent white head. The aroma and taste are both really nice. This is an easy to drink non skunky pilsner. This is the best American Pilsner I've had, certainly drink this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Type: 16 oz on tap
Glass: Pint Glass
From: Mash in Ann Arbor
Price: $4

Appearance: hazy orangish-yellow. pretty cloudy. about an inch of white foamy head that recedes fairly quickly

Smell: grassy and spicy hops. pretty weak smell

Taste: same as the nose but a little bit stronger. grass and some spicy hops. not a bad beer just nothing special

Mouthfeel: good carbonation and nice light feel. pretty drinkable

Overall: Not overly impressed with this one but I do see it going well as a session-able beer along side some of their barbecue.
