Taste- mostly malt but balanced well
Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied

Oxidized gold color. Sweet smell and sweet amd smooth taste. Mild hoppiness in the flavor and aroma. Ive had better pilsners and
I can get a better one for the same price. Still a solid brew but I will probably stock tomy favorite pilsners.

I'm usually never a pilsner German pilsner fan per say. I enjoy some Pilsners with a full body thicker feel and better after tastes. This one was decent in its pallet feel and taste. A little dry for my taste but definitely was a great beer for smell and look. Soapy thin head, poured nicely in a pint glass. Wheatley pale gold color. Not a bad one
