On-tap at Russian River Brewing Company, Santa Rosa, CA

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color (too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation). It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of pilsener malts.
T: The taste has flavors of grassy hops—which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness that lingers into the finish—along with with hints of pilsener malts.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener is OK. It's a little grassy but lighter in body compared to the STS Pils.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewery. I expected a lot. It let me down.

Hazy milk pale. Smells like a lager. Tastes like a lager. It's an over sweet corn syrupy lager substitute.

T: this is a horrible corn lager akin to BMC and worthy of their scorn. No good.

M: Sickly sweet and thin. Ugh.

O: the only Russian River beer I've ever hated. This is absolutely no good. Zero points.
