Single purchased at supermarket marked 01/08/16. Tasted 2/19/16.

Looks aren't exceptional. Not a long lasting head or much lacing. Aroma is "beery". But the taste really delivers on the hoppy pils brewery description/promise. The hoppy character sends me back 40 years to the "Pilsener Urquell" of the time. Urquell had a deeper amber color and more malt complexity, but Firestone Walker is in the running for the best Pils currenly available, at least for my taste buds (I hope "taste buds" wasn't registered by AB Inbev.)

Poured into a pilsner glass. Light golden straw color. Quickly disappearing head with some lace lingering. As many have said before, its very smooth and well balanced. Smells of pilsner malt and some herbs. Nice and light with the perfect amount of carbonation.
