Bought a six of this, at my local purveyor of spirits. Was looking for a promising American pilsner.

Alas, this is a "pilsner" that wants to be an IPA.

Aroma, mouthfeel all ok.

Color a nice golden.

Head was ok, but bubbles a little big.

Taste is clean, but bitter.

Way too hoppy for a pilsner, let alone a Czech-style Pilsner.
