3.44/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Crystal-clear, pale golden-yellow body. Foamy white head on top that settles quickly, but leaves a thin layer of bubbles and some lacing.

S- Toasted pilsner malt, hints of citrusy noble hops.

T- Pretty basic and very similar to the nose. Hints of toasted pilsner malts and hint of citrusy, grassy noble hops. The flavor comes through fairly full sometimes, but other times it shows up watered down.

M- Light bodied, very crisp, medium-high carbonation. Somewhat sticky and sweet.

O- A pretty good basic pilsner. Not a great example of the style, but a good offering.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Crystal clear, light amber in color with a thumb wide head.

S: Smell is a little lacking, nice citrus smell with a hint of maybe wine grape.

T: Taste follows the nose with a bready front followed by the citrus and a very faint wine grape taste. Small hop presence but still very noticeable.

M: Light body with an extreme amount of carbonation.

O: Not very complex by any means but a very great beer to enjoy in larger quantities on a hot day.

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

A - Clear straw with a quarter inch of white fizzy foam.

S - Nose is a bit chalky with lemony candy.

T - Crisp, lemony hops. Tinge of husky grain and a light lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

M - Sharp carbonation with a light body.

D - Lacks depth and isn't terribly tasty, but I suppose it would be fine for quaffing whilst sitting on a dock on a hot day or somesuch. Easy drinking anyway.

12 ounce bottle -> World Market Pilsner Flute Glass

This beer pours up a very pale clear straw with a one finger head, a small retention ring, and minimal lacing. The smell is very grassy. Might be some pine too, but I mostly get grasses. Taste is very mild. Mostly malt and not much on the hops side. Mouthfeel is kind of thin and watery although there is adequate carbonation. Not bad, but certainly unremarkable.
