It's a good beer, but I don't really like it. Just my own preference. Almost a gin and tonic flavor to it. Tastes like a spritz. Slight lemon flavor as well.

Good take on a Pills. Quite aromatic compared to traditional continental fare, but not over the top.

It's like Miller Lite ripped the pearl snap shirt off a sexy pale ale, had the intercourses with it, and birthed this easy drinker. I'd pound it. Because I just did.

A: This poured a clear straw with a little white head.
S: It smelled like grassy hops and spicy yeast, with a little earthy barley malt.
T: It tasted like grassy hops and spicy yeast, with some metallic and waxy character and earthy barley malt. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was oily with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was one of the better pilsners, with no skunky taste. Still not my preference, but the body was solid and the finish was smooth, so it wasn't difficult to drink. Ok to have once.
