12 oz bottle, picked up an Erie variety pack while visiting family in PA. Poured into a basic pint glass. Light straw color, decent carbonation. I was hoping for a bit more crisp flavor from this pilsner. A touch strong on the malt flavor.

Appearance: Pours a light amber color.

Overall: The taste starts out with a little bit of malt up front followed by some grain and a little bit of sweetness. This beer is pretty bland not much body to it. Does not taste like a craft beer. Good for people who like Miller and Budweiser.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a light amber color with barely any head that settles to a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small patch of sheer surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves tiny specks behind.

S- Some bready malt that's ever-so slightly sweet.

T- More bready malt and not much else. Hardly any hop presence. Watery flavor with barely any character. Just a typical beer taste with some slight sweetness.

M- Pretty dead and lifeless besides the medium carbonation and lightish body.

O- Quite bland and uninteresting. Not undrinkable, just not something I would ever reach for again. Good thing I got this for free.

A: Pours a bright, clear gold. The head is fairly small, with a soapy white texture. Retention is mediocre, with minimal lacing stuck to the glass.

S: Malty aromas up front, with sweet and grainy notes. Some herbal hop character is present and typical for style.

T: Rather malty, with some medium sweetness and doughy, bready flavor. Medium hop bitterness, with some leafy and herbal flavors.

M: Medium body, with moderate carbonation. The finish is lightly dry.

O: A solid but unspectacular pilsner. Rather malty, but a bit less crisp and dry than I was expecting.
