I know this will be good, love the style and the brewery tends to nail these types. NO can date
Pours a larger fluffy frothy head with med retention, a bit of soapy lacing, crystal clear with tiny pieces of sediment floating, golden pilsner color

Nose brings nice grainy-sweet pilsner malts, some bread dough and hint of vanilla cake batter, light floral hops, and mild fruity esters

Taste brings more of the grainy-sweet pilsner malts out front, little doughy cake batter notes, touch of straw, cracked grain, med-lighter bitterness with herbal fruity hop notes, and mild fruity esters, soft lager notes, no real DMS corn until the end, drier soft finish like nice German Pilsner, but not quite as crisp and bitter as I expected.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bod, med foamy carb, soft lager notes

Overall I'm a little disappointed, given this brewery's reputation for nailing styles, it didn't have the crisp bitterness and sulfate like notes on a nice German PIlsner, although softness was there, hops didn't seem as authentic as I didn't get that noble hop kick, and touch of fruity esters there which prob shouldn't, and the sediment in there, although the age of the can could explain all of this if it's too old, but I don't see a date, and I picked this up recently. I will have to try again with a known fresh can or something.
