For the price... this one is hard to beat!
@ $6.99 for a 4pk of Pint cans...
For a hot summer day by the grill - this is the go to beer!
I care for the taste and the finish wayyy better than the smell.
This is my first encounter with this particular brew. I like it better than Pilsner Urquell!
No attacks please!

Decent overall Pils. Good taste. Not too heavy. Good pour from the bottle. A very affordable, good drinking beer. Perfect for hot weather- enjoy at a cookout or a day on the gold course, or a day fishing.
Not bitter, light in color, good palatable Pils.
It's usually priced well, too- for the budget conscious consumer. Enjoy!

11.2 ounce bottle poured into pilsener flute glass

A - crystal clear light gold/straw in color, with a small one inch head, decent retention and lacing.

S - The smell is fairly weak, mostly grasses and grains

T - sweet malt taste with a crisp, dry, yeasty, but surprising bitter finish. But everything about this is fairly subtle. The Germans just make this style a little better than we do.

M - gold carbonation but not much aftertaste

O - a good example of the style!!!
