3.13/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

On tap in Greenville SC.

Excellent looks: clear amber body with a proportionate creamy off-white head that has partial retention and that leaves spots and streaks of sticky lacing.

Weird aroma suggests some wild yeast or contamination.

Flavor: Mild bitterness. Better and sweeter than the aroma suggests, but faint off notes. Notably off style with rather mild hop notes and with striking sweetness up front.

Medium+ carbonation with a soft feel in a medium-light body

3.7/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Yellow with a thin white head.

Smell: Light hops and cloves, with a hint of wheat and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of sweeter grassy notes with hints of hops and cloves.

Overall: Excellent Pilsner. I would have this one again.

Looks and smells like a pilsner should. Moderate head and great carbonation. Malt balances well with slightly bitter hops. Finish is clean and crisp, leaving a refreshing feel at the end with light bitterness

Can "DEPOSITED 05/17/16"

Dark golden color with a good-sized creamy white head. Sweet grain, grass, and slight corny vegetables in the nose. Better flavor: tasty cereal grain, noble hops, nuts, bread. Light, crisp, and clean. Better on tap.

3.41/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had this as part of a flight at Fullsteam Brewery.

Look: light golden color with a finger of white head
Smell: light hops, faint scent of grain
Taste: grains, sweet malt flavor, with a light hoppy finish; overall flavor is on the weak/thin side
Feel: lighter bodied, medium carbonation

Overall: basic pilsner... pleasant & easy to drink, but not overly complex. Good for the style of beer that it is.

3.84/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives clear and golden, with a frothy head appropriate to the style

Smell: Crackery and slightly sweet, with grassy tones

Taste: Cracker malt, up front, with a nod in the direction of graham sweetness; grassy hop flavors add balance, in the middle, but the finish verges on the sweeter side

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; moderately crisp carbonation

Overall: A pleasant drinker and went great with the BBQ that was served for the Triangle Land Conservancy fundraiser; I would like to taste a bit stronger hop profile, though

On tap at churchkey. Served cold as they do these type of beers in america to just get a hit of hops but not truly the style, just tastes like a fair ipa. Clean, light.
