Gold/dark straw in color. Clear. Only negative is the lack of head. There is slight lace.

Thin aroma; crisp, little hop. No flaws.

This is a truly disappointing beer. The primary flavor is skunky; yet, it is from the tap. How is that possible? The body is about right, but the flavor is too distracting to give mouthfeel more than an average score.

Sorry, not a winner, best to avoid. Think Heinekin.

Good light color for an pilsner.

Almost no aroma. Almost no flavor. Mouth feel like the water we were also served.

Dull pale yellow in color. Very thin head, no lacing. The aroma is tame as some light grass can be detected. The flavor is disappointing as the malt and bitterness levels are turned way down, as if to satisfy the tastebuds of the leading macros out there.

Slightly crisp and a very clean finish. Very light bodied. This is a very bland and "safe" beer brewed with the typical tourist in mind.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a sampler glass.

Appearance: Clear pale light straw color. Dies dow to a ring of foam. Little head or lacing.

Nose: Light bready malt. Slight floral hop presence.

Taste: Follows smell. More husky/bread like though.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, crisp, light, hoppy/carbonic acid bite on the finish.

Overall: Brewed to style, no real flaws, but no real flare. Comes of a bit uninspired...even for a pilsner.

This was served on a hot hot hot day in nola served cold in a pilsner glass at the bar
Color a bright yellow with rings forming nicely as I drank
A fruoty bitter finish and the aftertaste lingered but in a good way not very drinkable for sessions on a hot day too heavy but very good

Pours clear, bright yellow in color, with minimal head. Taste is grass honey, and light graham cracker. Slightly bitter and light bodied. This is a small step above macro pilsners. Nothing I would reach for otherwise, but I can see how this would be refreshing to several beer drinkers on a hot day.
