Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

This beer proves that a good pils can look like what BMC claims to be without lacking flavor or resorting to inferior ingredients. It looks, for all intents and purposes, what BMC advertises in commercials and on packaging. It's pale gold, completely clear and bubbly. A pillow of pure white head is fluffy and sits almost 2 fingers tall initially. Lacing is left in tight webbing, then patching, then spotting.
Sulfuric Saaz hops are right up front in the nose, and it's clear this isn't a weak BMC. Hops are showcased here but balanced by a doughy malt. A bit of light sweetness with floral notes to it rounds it out some.
There's a bit of grains that avoids the impression of cereal character before hops smack the palate. It provides a biting spiciness as well before some bready malts come in to soften it up. This is certainly on the hoppy side for a pils, and I feel the malts and a touch of light sweetness keep it from going abrasive in the finish, which it seems it might otherwise.
It's as light as I'd expect, though a far cry from the thin feel of some efforts, pretty well verging into medium. It's got a constant crispness as well as carbonation, and it's clean.
