A: Pours a light, translucent gold with plenty of head. Carbonation levels are quite active as evidenced by the large, foamy head and the plethora of bubbles climbing up to the top of the beer.

S: Sweet, light fruits, adjunct grains (corn), sugar and grass. An almost cider-like aroma.

T: Sweet malts, adjunct grains, pear, grape and a floral hop bouquet up front, followed by some butter and melon and finishing with bittering, lemon citrus hops and a twang of metal and mineral water that lingers on the tongue.

M: Light bodied with active, crisp carbonation. It feels nice on the tongue and goes down smooth with a bit of chewiness in the middle. Finishes dry with a bit of astringency.

O: Overall, not one of my favorite Pilseners because of the bitterness and astringency; not sure what all the hype is about. It's definitely drinkable and would pair nicely with anything off the grill, especially white meats, but I'd pass for something a bit more balanced.
