Aroma is wet grain and some malt. Flavor is carbonic tang up front followed my malt sweetness. Sweet German Pilsner? Can't remember having had one. This isn't for me. Mildly sweet finish.

On tap at Capital Brewery. 12oz poured into a plastic cup 9/2/2014.

A- Clear golden yellow body with a two finger white head with OK retention time; leaves a thin collar and plenty of lacing as I drink the beer. [3]

S- Grainy pale malt, a bit of lemon, crackers and noble hops. Pretty much what I expected from a Capital-brewed pilsner. [3]

F- Grainy freshly made crackers, bread, a bit of pepper, a bit of lemon, but mostly the crackers, bread and yeast. Pretty solid flavour profile. [3]

M- Lighter bodied, a bit overcarbonated, but crisp and refreshingly dry. Pretty easy to drink. [3]

O- Solid pilsner, nothing too substantial or special but it's a good one to have at a party or gathering. [3]

Final score: 3.00

Basic Pils ala Capital Brewery. Mainstream, shall we say, with more hops than you might get elsewhere but still very American as opposed to European / malt kind of dominates overall, but without a great depth of character. Still, refreshing and flavorful, and always welcome.
