look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

L: Pale, straw coloured beer that is topped by thick pillowy foam that lasts a good while. As it dissipates it leaves behind thick lacing on the sides of the glass. In this case a fluted, Jever Pilsner glass. Aside from the head it looked like sparkling wine with delicate bubbles rising through the beer.
S: I could detect delicate floral notes along with the distinct pilsner twang.
T: Not as hoppy as I would have thought. Floral and spicy notes come through.
F: Dry.
O: Certainly a more flavourful rendition than a macrobrew pilsner (I'm looking at you Labatt's Blue). The mild hops adds a nice depth to an otherwise delicate beer.

5/5  rDev +26.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Look: Sparkling gold, exactly how a pilsner should look

Smell: Herbal, grassy hops with that sweet bready smell that reminds you what a pilsner should smell like

Taste: Unrivaled. Easily the best year round pilsner available in the US. Perfect amount of hoppiness and malt sweetness.

Feel: Perfectly carbonated, medium body feel.

Overall: I could drink this beer every day for the rest of my life. I would easily take this over the hopped up imperial IPAs or pastry barrel aged stouts. This is what beer should be. Vastly underrated.

Pours clear with a 1-finger head. Small amount of small carbonation rising.

Aroma of hay. Musty. Corn.

Taste is light hops. Grassy at the end. Bready. Malt.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and cleansing.

Overall, a decent beer. What I like about it is that it is sessionable. Very nice everyday beer that can go with a variety of food. Seems rare these days.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass at home. Basically just a pilsner, not as hoppy as a pale ale. Nothing wrong with that, easy drinker.

I'm a pilsner fan, and this one is unique. No kidding on the hops- it'll punch like MacGregor, but it's smooth like Floyd. Crisp and refreshing like a Pils should be. I think IPA fans may like to try this Pils for a change. Drink up ye sons of glory.

Very light see through straw color to this beer with an adequate white head. Nice look for the style. Slight hops but mainly a bready malt scent to this brew. Really like the flavor of this one, I'd call it spicy and smooth with as nice spicy hop ending. Well carbonated and somewhat light in feel.
