Surprising amber color with a nice aroma this was a great beer to drink. The flavors where stronger than most normal pils. Loved the malt and hop balance. A great easy drinking beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours lightly hazy yellow with a very sudsy white head. The aroma has grainy pils malt, light creamy richness and traces of spicy hops. Medium body that is grainy with some semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with grainy pale malt, citric lemon and light spice. The flavors are very muddled. The finish is spicier and has more pronounced citrus. This doesn’t seem to be very true to style and comes across as a very fair beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straw colour. Spicy, slightly yeasty aroma with breezy malts. Low bitterness. Touch of hop grassiness, though. Slightly toasty malts lead to a crisp finish.

Purchased at Whole Foods
Light summery pilsner, more flavor than Bud light, but still light enough to drink on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp and slightly sulfery tasting pils, yeasty with a herbal hop finish. Slightly woody tasting and lemony notes. Pours hazy yellow with a strong white head. Not very similar to urquell, but a nice pils in its own way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Sulphury notes peruse through the frank herbal hops and their savoury spiciness in this highly drinkable and flavorful Pilsener.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the witbier-like hazy pale yellow.
-Herbal, wooden hops sprinkle joy throughout, branching out into citrusy and grassy personas once in a while.
-Body’s loose and watery at times, but the wet straw maltiness manages to hold every flavor in check.
-Carbonation might be more relaxed than the usual pils, but then again this one doesn’t feel like it’s aiming at Czech or German lineage specifically.
