Pours like a thin honey, in color and appearance; decent head and lacing.

Aromas are of a typical pilsner; malty, pils malts, some hop or yeast spiciness, not totally sure.

The taste is fairly disappointing, but that is just because I realize I hate pilsners in general. This is a clean, bright, strong example of the newish imperial style of this beer, I just can't say this is enjoyable. It tastes like nothing in my opinion, how do people like such bland beer. Anyway, some nice tart notes I guess with some sweetness. Could be dryer if you ask me.

Mouthfeel is slightly thicker than the average pilsner, obviously, but decent I guess.

Overall, eh, I think I've said enough on this one. If you like pilsners, why not sure, give it a try. Amazing designs/artwork on the bottle and it was for a good cause so I'm still glad I bought this.

Golden straw colored pour with a one finger head. Taste of wheat up front. Can also taste a bit of bread and citrus. Slight hint of bitterness in the finish.
