Bottle. Pours a very light straw color, with a solid head. Light aroma, mostly hop-driven, but with a hint of malt in the undertones. Refreshing flavor - the hops provide notes of citrus and a bit of pine; the malt complements the hops nicely, but lets them shine. A lot of subtle complexity. Very nice example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light yellow with a fluffy head. Smell is very light; baked bread comes to mind. Taste is light and crisp with a strong saltine/cracker character and a hint of hops. Short bready finish. Not really sweet at all. I love saltines so I like this beer, but of course your mileage may vary.

After spending a month in the Czech Republic and drinking Czech Pivo in the city of Pilsner I realize there is a lot in the name "pils" which is more German than Czech. I was lucky enough to drink this on tap at Select Beer in Redondo Beach and they poured it with a nice creamy head. It has a nice straw color and is more hoppy in the nose and on the palate than its central European counterparts. It has a nice lingering after taste of hop flowers with a slight bitterness. It seems like they are brewing it to have more depth than other lagers brewed in the US.
