Bottle thx to benzai. Mediocre, thin pilsener. Can’t win against the bigger, more famous pilseners.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Churchkey thanks to Travlr. The pour is a clear yellow with a small white head quickly diminshing. Nose is pretty obvious diacetyl and margarine character...how did this happen with a lager? Taste is big butter slickness masking what is underneath could possibly be a beautiful beer- fresh papaya and melon character. Palate is spritzy and very sharp carbonation. Unwelcome diacetyl slickness. Really could be something awesome but severely lacking in fundamentals.
