Pours a hazy gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of strong Euro yeast, corn, pale malt, slight citrus hops, and a hint of sweet malt. Fist the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight metallic dryness. Tastes of strong Euro yeast, corn, pale malt, slight citrus hops, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, good appearance, metallic dryness and corn flavors are a detriment, but otherwise quite good.

Poured from bottle into tulip, nice 1 finger cream colored head fades quickly, so so lacing. Pale light golden in the glass, pretty clear, slight opaqueness. Smells faintly of cracker malt, some grassy herbal hops coming thru. Even though in a green bottle, it was pretty well protected on my end after coming out of the box, so no skunkiness here. Taste is crisp on the front, some herbal hops, and some biscuit malt on the palate, slight bitterness, some grassy flavor coming thru, some lemon residue. Finish is on the dry side. Nice pils, though one and done. There are just so many breweries cranking out great pils in a bottle format you don't have to babysit.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet bready and grainy malts are present in the nose along with some faint hints of skunk.
T: The taste follows the smell, but doesn't have any sweetness—this is instead replaced by some flavors of grassy hops and a light amount of associated bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This could have been a solid pilsener if it weren't for the spunkiness in the smell and taste.

Not sure if I got a bad batch but this tasted just liked Coors Light. Hardly any flavor which was very surprising.
