Pours crystal clear golden straw colour with lots of light fluffy head.

Nose is subtle. Malt, biscuit, and a tiny bit of citrus hops.

Taste follows nose very closely. Quite smooth. The hops at the end distinguish this Pilsner from others I've had.

A good refreshing beer.

A- Crystal clear pale golden pour out of the stubby 12oz bottle. A white head fills the glass at about two fingers high with a thick, frothy texture. Good head retention as a large pillow and ring result. Spotty lacing at the top but not much else.

S- Pale cracked grains and a bit of zesty, spicy hops but not all that much of anything overall. General lager yeast hints but that is fairly clean too.

T- A fair amount of malt flavors open up for me with a profile of biscuit, cracked Pilsen grains and cereal. Hops lend herbal, spicy and slightly zesty character but fail to really shine.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a crispy and foamy feel on the palate. Carbonation is close to high and contributes to the foaminess. Finishes lightly bitter.

Nothing bad going on really but also not much going on at all, somewhat impressive for 6.2%. Neither the malts or the hops are intriguing enough to bring the beer from decent to good.
