3.56/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance- the beer pours a clear wheat color with a tiny white head that fades super fast to leave a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma is super light with just a little bit of grain and hay.
Taste -The taste is light and crisp with a little bit of cracker and grain upfront. There is also some light caramel, which fades at the expense of some hay and light herb to leave one with a crisp taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is medium in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average. Overall the feel is is good and makes for a refreshing brew.
Overall - A decent pils with an easy drinking style. Good, but nothing exceptional.

I grabbed this because it was it was on sale at $7 for the four pints. Damn am I happy with the purchase.

Gotta be one of the tastiest pilsners I've ever had.

L: Pours a clear straw yellow body with white head. Great retention and some attractive lacing patterns, but that's not where this pils really shines.

S: Soft floral aromas of cut grass, dandelion and honeysuckle caress the nose. This is balanced beautifully by a sweet bread dough aroma like an uncooked french roll. From there a white peppercorn spice pervades the mix, bringing in hints of lemon and yellow watermelon.

T: Tastes like a cool spring morning in a glass. Beautiful hops. It's all lightly sweet doughy bread and yellow flowers at first, then pepper pops its head in right before the floral bitterness spikes for a brief moment, immediately dropping into a mellow finish of lemon and melon rinds over that doughy base.

F: This is where this pils really shines. So crisp, light, dry, and refreshing. I see why this is meant to be a lower abv style. This is the weakest pils I've had at 4.0%, and it's none the worse for that.

O: I have no idea how fresh this is, since I think Roadhouse usually puts a date sticker on top of their 4-pack holders, and I didn't see any on these in the store. From the flavor, it can't have been in the fridge more than a few months. Such clean and fresh hops.

4pack bought at Liquor Shed. No dating.

Pours a very slightly hazy straw yellow with an inch of foam after the initial pour.

2 basic aromas here. Bread and a strongly resembling smell of noble hops, that really isn't German or Bohemian.

The delicious hoppiness glides through from start to finish. Bready malt interjects itself intermittently and adds a nice touch.

Body is substantial for a beer of 4%abv.

I'll be drinking this beer until there's none left on the shelves!
