Poured like a fizzy soda. Strong banana scent on the nose. Grassy aftertaste. Full bodied. Good for summer drinking. Not the best pilsener but worth a try.

Hazy gold with a decent head and lacing. Bread and some floral hops on the nose. Medium weight, less crisp than some.

Yellow, with very little smell. Tastes great though, very refreshing with slight, pleasant lingering aftertaste. Good go-to beer.

Bright pale straw color with dense activity. Slightly frothy and foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some good legs. Flavors of sweet grains, lemon, caramel, barley, and noble spices. Bread, biscuits and straw toffee feel with a nice zesty sharpness. Slick full body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Light finish of leafy and grassy dried floral noble spices. No adjunct feel here, and no syrup feel. Faint flavors but not overly bland, very subtle but pretty good. Refreshing and clean. This is what a Pils should taste and feel from some nice balance. Overall very good quality craft.

Pours a dull yellow body with a bit of head that dissipates almost immediately. The scent is a bit hoppy, with earthiness and a bit of malty breadiness coming through. The taste has a fairly sharp hoppy tone to it at the front of the tongue, balanced by grainy and grassy flavours in the middle before another large finish. Overall a good beer, though not my favourite pilsener.

Serving Type: 473 mL Can

A- Pours a pale golden topped with a foamy 1 finger white head with decent retention. Fair amount of lacing on the glass.

S- Bready malt and grassy, floral hops. Pretty standard stuff for a European-esque Pilsener.

T- Subtle bready malts, grassy hops, and a slight earthiness. Not extremely exciting, but pretty decent.

M- Light-Medium Body and moderate carbonation. Smooth body.

O- Good interpretation of the style and an outstandingly creamy mouthfeel for a Pilsener. Nothing that would beat the Germans, but great for the price.

Average brew from an average brewery. Pours a big head over a clear pale yellow brew. That head is gone ASAP and leaves nada, clean glass all the way down. Hoppy, grassy, slightly earthy. Yup, kind of a weird finish flavour, so I concur with an earlier reviewer. Bit of a puffy mouthful somehow. Better than an industrial grade macro, but otherwise uninteresting.
