Golden carbination poured into right glassware leaving fluff of foam. Soggy cereal scent seems too overpowering. Tastes of malt hoppy pilsner was not too appealing at first. Temerature was not low enough. Overall not my favorite choice for pilsner.

Pale golden color under a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma has a quality warm Pils malt character topped with spicy hops, floral, grass, and crackers. Flavor is similar, leaning towards the malty side, though there is a nice leafy Saaz hoppiness and a bit of lager yeast. Medium-light bodied and crisp. This is always a pretty good bet for a solid drinkin' beer. They nail the malt character pretty well, though I wish the spicy hop was a little more potent.
