A-golden with a nice sticky white head. Lots of bubbles

S-crisp grains with a nice hint if light honey. Fair strength

T-comes in with a great grassy bitterness along with a nutty grain flavor, almost reminds me of Cheerios. I like it! It's actually full of bold and quality flavors. There's a good matching after-taste.

M-medium carbonation with a nice crisp finish

O-I bought a 6 pack of this with out ever having it before. I'm glad I did! It's very tasty! It's a quality lager! I really don't know what else to say besides go out and try this please! It's one of the best pilsners I've ever had.

Pours out clear like any other pilsner. Clear with a golden hue. The aroma of the noble hops emerges out as the most pungent aroma. This beer goes down smooth and the clears. There is only a light and slight bitternes to this beer. Very good american interpurtation of a Czech Pilsner where most american craft beers are going for fruitful beers.
