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.

Not a fan of this one. The look and smell of this beer are not much different than a Miller Lite. The taste is on the bitter side. Would much rather drink a Hefeweizen. I like my beers cloudy.

Pours a clear golden straw with a thick white foamy head. The nose was grainy with subtle spicy noble hops. The taste followed with grain, cracker, bread and a nice floral and spicy hoppy bitterness. Clean finish. No diacetyl. Very nice.
