Poured on tap into a pint glass. Pours straw with a nice fluffy white head. Smells of sweet grain. Tastes of grain but full, no adjunct taste. Beer is extremely drinkable, light bodied, decent carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Crystal clear transparent pale straw body with a soapy, bright white head. Aroma is grassy, hints of lemon, slight bread. Flavor matches the aroma, fresh grass, lemony citrus, slight hint of toast, hints of floral hops. Feel is crisp, clean, drinkable, medium-light bodied. Really awesome take on the Pilsner, put it in cans!

Not, umm, not perfecta...

Pours a little foggy for the style. Not much of a head.

Smells hoppy and grainy. Plain, but well balanced. The hops aren't intense enough to consider this a Czech pils, or even a German pils, but it would hold its own as an old school American version of the style (which many don't even consider to be proper pils').

Tastes like a weirdly grainy American Blonde or else an absolutely acceptable American Adjunct. Dry hops and cereal up front, medium sweet corn in the middle, and then more cereal and dry hops at the end. It grew on me as the pint progressed, and I'm pretty sure this was more or less what they were trying to brew, but it's not all that great for the style.
