Pours straw yellow with plenty of clarity and a 1/3" white head. Aroma of lager yeast and not much else. Pretty absent.

Taste, a little bit of noble hops, pilsen malt and a boatload of carbonation. Kind of lacks the crispness that is style defining really. What you get here is a light beer in every way pretty much. Made for BMC drinkers or those who simply don't like beer but want to have one beer or something while doing something else.

I don't think you should fool yourself into thinking this is a pilsner for which they put a lot into this. It seems consciously chosen to be like a blonde ale, but instead, with a lager yeast. Excessive carbonation that doesn't form a good head either, I dunno man.

Buy it for your grandma.

Clear golden colour with a small white head. Poor head retention.

Mild grain aroma. Dull. Lacking and otherwise not really a pilsner.

Light pilsner malt with a hint of bitterness. No hops. Boring and more lager than pilsner.

Medium-light body with moderately-high carbonation. Fine.

A dull, simple lager which is lightly flavoured, not particularly crisp and not really up to scratch.
