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.

Pours a clear straw yellow golden color with white head. Light floral notes, honey, and some cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Great for Texas summer days. Finishes with some lingering light spice notes, crisp and clean.

Pours pale golden with about a two finger head. Didn't catch much smell. Taste is light biscuit malt with some lemon and floral earthy hops. Dry, clean finish.
