Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, no "best by" date that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a crystal clear pale yellow with two-finger white head that dissipated slowly until a thin layer of bubbles remained throughout, medium carbonation, there is a good amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: sweet honey, bread, lemon grass.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet, light citrus then a nice light kiss of hops.

PALATE: light body, medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very drinkable beer that would offend no one, it does not set the world on fire but I enjoyed it, great price at $9.99 for a sampler 12 pack, for the price I would definitely but this again.

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of bottling code on the bottleneck. Acquired as part of the variety twelve pack from the local Jewel.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a slightly murky golden yellow orange. One finger of frothy white head with decent staying power. Leaves some scattered spotty lacing. Looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is grainy and lightly herbal / fruity. A bit of bready / crackery pilsner malt. Fairly basic, but appealing enough.

T - Taste follows the nose - fairly basic, but appealing enough. Bready, malty, and indistinctly fruity.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Light-bodied and easy drinking.

Overall, an average example of a pilsner from these guys, but it works well enough for me. Not something to seek out, but it would definitely be a nice beer to have if there are lesser options available.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Stella Artois goblet.

A: Nice clear, deep golden. 1 finger white head. Decent carbonation.
S: white bread. a bit yeasty. hint of spicyness from the noble hops.
T: Light saltine cracker malt. Hint of cinnamon from the hops. Sweetens as it goes down. Slight aftertaste.
M: Light bodied. Fizzy feel. Goes down pretty smooth.
O: Better than the regular domestic beers, with a bit of nice zest from the hops. Very sessionable and with a decent amount of flavor. Drinkability is through the roof.
