Appearance: clear amber in color with a light white head.

Taste: some malt, slightly hop/ grass finish.

Mouthfeel: light.

Overall: meh, alright, but not the best example imo. This one is more of a grass cutting brew for the warm days.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Crystal clear amber brew which produced a very thin head. After a few seconds, all that remained was a ring around the edge of the glass.

S - A mild yet sweet aroma, almost candy sweet.

T - Water mostly. Some malt sweetness and a grassy finish.

M - Light bodied, very thin and watery. Sharp carbonation.

D - Nothing bad per say about this beer, but nothing really good either. It just didn't have any real flavor. Went down easy, but that isn't enough to hold my attention.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

Another ghost from my NoVa past. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a bit less than a finger of white foam, which doesn't hang around very long to chat. The nose comprises corn, wheat, corn syrup, and a strong bit o' calcium jutting up from the center. The taste cuts right to the pilsner core, with some wheat, light corn, flowers, and oats. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a nice little pils, nothing really special but drinkable enough for days.

Had a 12 oz. bottle purchased from a The Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg. Has a nice crisp clean taste with a pleasant hint of apple. Has a very thin layer of head and pours smoothly. Light gold in appearance, and is easily quaffable. Has a pleasant aroma of apples, grains, and other just overall slightly fruity. Wonderful Pilsner.

Consumed 9/10/09- from notes.

Brown 12oz bottle with out much info. Contract brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Seemed to fit the Czech Pilsner description the best so thats what I picked. Maybe somebody more experienced will verify or change that.

A- Poured a brassy gold, very yellow when held up to the light. One finger white head with big bubbles that quickly turned into a ring for the rest of the glass. Not much in the way of lacing. Active carbination.

S- Didnt pick up much on the nose. A little sweet grass, a little like crackers.

T- Sweet malts, grassy, maybe a hint of light fruit, a hint of hops at the end. Leaves kind of a herbal/metallic aftertaste.

M- Light bodied and crisp, the carbination is a little rougher than I expected but not in a bad way.

D- I could see this being a session brew when there is a lack of options. Probably would make a good starter beer for those getting away from the usual macro selection. All in all, not sorry I tried it but wont look for it again once the six pack is gone.
