3.54/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very light, straw yellow with lots of head and streaming bubbles. Appears very carbonated.

Aroma is dominated by doughy bread with a slight touch of fruitiness. Maybe some yeast aroma sneaking through too.

Taste is more fruity than the aroma with the doughy malt backbone. Maybe a little funk in there which I assume is the yeast. Very crisp with a light mouthfeel. Finishes dry.

Overall, not my favorite Pilsner, but solid nonetheless. Would buy again, but wouldn't be in regular rotation.

Canned on 3/15/18

Look: light straw with a relentless white head that brings a sticky, almost web-like lacing

Smell: fresh grain and a strong but balanced note of earthy funk

Taste: buttery oats with a strong backbone of wheat and hay; a bit of light, malty sweetness rounds out the finish

Feel: medium-bodied, crisp, and very soft on the palate

Overall: clean, easy-drinking pilsner with a nice balance of pronounced flavors; solid stuff

Light champagne color with lots of carbonation bubbles, 3F head.
Good head retention.

Fruity, Pilsner malt aroma. Very traditional.

Very carbonated.

Light fruit, Pilsner malt taste.

Excellent palate: dry, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Approach to style: very traditional. Excellent beer. I continue to enjoy beers from Lost Nation.
We need more daily beers like this. High ABV is not a reflection of brewing quality.
Bring on the Pilsners, Keller beers and similar styles.

From the one pint can with a 3/15/18 canning date. Sampled on April 1, 2018.

The appearance is a clean golden color with lively carbonation bubbles swimming upward to the boisterous white, foamy long-lasting head. It's how a Pilsner should look.

An aroma of toasted biscuit and barley grain Euro-malts, corn, and grass.

The body is medium and soft.

While I do get a sweet, corny character in the taste there is this kind of ethanol undercurrent that brings down my perception a little bit. The finish is otherwise clean and crisp.

16oz can. Pours a clear light straw color with no head. The aroma is mostly grassy hops and bready malts. Hint of citrus peel and hay. The taste is grassy and floral hops along with biscuity malts, citrus peel and hay. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation and slightly dry. Pretty good Pils I'd buy once in a while.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Carbonation rises at a light pace to fill a two finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. The smell starts off with a sweet and dry grassiness over top of a light biscuity goodness. Light floral leafiness rounds out the aroma. The taste was the sweet grassy dryness leading into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a smooth semi-sticky sweet feel laying down on my tongue. Overall, what a wonderful pilsener, think it leans towards the German side of the wheelhouse, but I have two more cans, so, I’m content with that. Wouldn’t mind with some bratwurst with this one!

What a beauty out of the can - a translucent, vivacious straw-gold-ish yellow that bares everything on the other side of the glass. Small bubbles travel rapidly up the body of the beer. Moderate head after a gentle pour leaves a nice webbing of lace in the glass. Aroma is doughy, crackery, bready malt with a touch of floral notes. Taste is lightly toasted white bread, thick cut soda crackers, lime, grassy and faint pepper. Pleasant lingering bitterness punctuates each crisp sip. So drinkable, nicely carbonated. Light bodied and enjoyable. Availability and price (which are always tied together) stops me from having a few cans in the fridge once it's warm out.

Appearance: golden yellow in color with a one finger head that lasts a while.

Taste: light grainy malt profile with biscuit, cracker, some grass, and lemon zest. A mild spicy bitterness with this beer.

Mouthfeel: lighter in body. Very crisp from start to finish. Clean aftertaste.
