Poured a golden colour, large foamy head, moderate retention, had some lacing, clear. Aroma was nutty, mushroomy, and hoppy. I also picked up some booze which was surprising given the moderate ABV. Tasted a malty rather than hoppy bitterness, notes of grain and grass, a bit bready. Finish was sour dough like. Medium body, well carbonated, fairly coarse edge. I remember liking this beer better in the past, fairly average.

Nice bottle, gold aluminum wrap. Decent deal compared to the other specialty beers at the store.

Smells of straw and sweet mixed with very subtle hops out of bottle.

Nice straw-golden color in glass. Nice micro-bubble head that is easy to draw and persists.

Smells directly from glass are dominated with malt.

Nice flavor! For a pilsener, this is surprising! Nothing like the American domestics and adjuncts. This has real character.

You think you may just get a boring pilsener flavor, but this has serious floral notes. Hops sweetness comes through without the sickening aftertaste of an adjunct.

Healthy bitterness sits on the tongue afterwards.

The hoppyness is different from American - more fruity, less citrusy/grassy.

A little smokiness on the aftertaste, as well.

Feel is also nice - the carbonation is frothy. And, despite its look at style, there's actually a rich, creamy feel to this.

Enjoyed from a bottle into a Pilsner glass.

A: Crystal clear light golden color. A decent amount of bubbles rise to the top of the glass. Not much of a foam head. Perhaps it was a bad pour but the weak foam head gave away fairly quick.

S: Grainy and Hoppy. Nothing overwhelming.

T: Matly at first. The hops kick in and give off a very mild floral taste. Perfect transition to a bitter ending.

M: Light body. A pleasantly bitter, dry finish.

Overall: I cannot say many things bad about this beer. I am a big fan of Pilsner beers and this brew is definitely a more appealing brand than others. A case was available for a very reasonable price at a wholesale store. Considering this was my first time drinking this brand, it was a bit of a gamble to commit to such a large quantity of beer. It proved to be worth-while and I would definitely drink this again.

Light, clean, well balanced malty flavor with hops that give it a dry white wine afterglow in the mouth. Very nice to wash back moderate to heavy meals containing meats, cheese, and oils.

The color is a perfect pils gold, and the head has those fine bubbles that tell you they know what they are doing. I told a friend "it tastes like Miller, but with double the flavor and kick".

I bought a 6 pack at Whole Fools on sale, and would buy it again.
