A: The only decent thing about this beer is its appearance. Poured a transparent yellowish- golden color with a rocky white head, decent lacing and bubbles.

S: Sulfur, a bit of sweetness, grains and corn. Not impressed.

T: Even less impressed. A big soapy taste upfront which persists throughout, all the way to finish. A cloying sweetness, weird hop bitterness, sticky taste on the back end. The finish is awful. Heavy, cloying, sweet, bitter...just awful

M: Light medium bodied, lowly carbonated for this style, heavy, off, cloying, gross

O: A poor example of this style. This beer should have never been released. It's awful and in no way depicts what this style should smell, taste and feel like. Drain pour.

This was one of the rotating taps at the Post Street Ale house in Spokane. Hey the Stanley Cup Finals are on & I love Pilsners, How could I resist?

As with most beers at this friendly spot, the beer is served in a standard pint. It is a dark gold with a slight chill haze. It has a clingy white head.

It has a fresh nose, bready malts and a hint of spice.

It is crisp & refreshing. There are noticeable grains, some dry grass and light hopping. It has a bit of spice in the finish.

Nice carbonation and a mid-level thickness makes for an easy drinker.

One more thing, Go Hawks!
