Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a straw color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is grassy, malts. Taste is the same. Crisp, refreshing, malts, grassy, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, a standard pilsner.

This beer pours a very clear straw with a fairly large head. The aroma is heavily tilted toward light crackery malts, with just a hint of white pepper and moss from the classic hops. The is again dominated by the very light, very crisp crackery malts, with mild bitterness and flavors of pepper, thyme, and twig coming through at the end. The mouthfeel is utterly crisp with a fair amount of lackadaisical small bubble carbonation. Overall this beer does nothing wrong, but it really fails to capture my interest. The lazy carbonation's stops it from being in truly crisp, refreshing territory, but there is not enough body or hop presence to put in in the category of complexity.

This is a really pleasant pilsner with a solid, assertive flavor that is a touch above for the style. Pours a light bright straw color with a nice clean aroma of cereal grains and mild hops, and has a good level of carbonation.

Not my favorite pilsner, overall a little bitter for what I'm looking for in a pilsner. Had a fresh malt/cereal and grassy smell. Very light gold color. The taste was bready and the hops added a little to much bitterness and monotone mineral taste.
