Poured from an inch or so above the glass gave me a small to medium sized white head above a clear golden colored beer.

A very light hops with maybe a bit of grain malt in the aroma.

The taste has more malts coming through with about the same amount of the subdued hops remaining.

A light bodied beer with a light mellowing aftertaste.

This beer is what I think they make to pacify the Bud and Miller drinkers and I think this beer is better than anything those two make.

Had on tap at the San Diego Airport's Karl Strauss.

Beer pours a nice golden color without much head at all.

No real smells to detect other than a slight bit of bready yeast.

Beer has a very crisp flavor with a bit of hop bitterness, but not very much.

Very crisp and full of carbonation flavor.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a N'ice Chouffe beer flute glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are mediocre.

A: Pours a half finger head of no cream, bad thickness, and terrible retention. Colour is a clear yellow-gold.

Sm: Malt, straw, and stale cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Quite malty, with stale cream and some straw. Simple and bland. It doesn't taste good - that's for damned sure. What were they thinking? A wretched pilsner. Imbalanced and badly built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but entirely too thick for the style and flavours.

Dr: Hard to drink because it tastes so bad. It's really an awful take on the pilsner style. It might be better on draught, but as is I have no plans to try this again anytime soon.
