Nobody's noting Pilsners for their complexity and this one's not going to change that, but it is still a light, crisp and refreshing beer. Nose was slightly estery with that typical lager smell (yeast?), not much else there, pretty boring. It was a bright golden color with a white head and very easy drinking. Taste was also pretty bland, nothing really notable here, hops are very much irrelevant. All in all it's a decent Pilsner, refreshing, but ultimately boring.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle batch 12/12

look is a clear straw color, some odd floaties, and a talk frail head that fades to a ring. smell is slightly sweet, corny, grainy. light, crisp, with a husky corniness and slight english hopping. finish is surprisingly malty, but otherwise this drinks like an exceptionally clean and tasty american adjunct.

good everyday drinkin' stuff.... from India
5/5 as far as a(i)al's go
