Grainy/grassy aroma with a hint of citrus, surprisingly complex for a lager. Flavor almost has a hint of lemon grass.

12 oz can. Smells like corn being pressed on to steel. Wow... much better than the nose leads me to believe. Quite rich and malty. What a surprise! Nice balance of hops and malt. Slightly sweet on the palate with lingering hints of corn. Nice short smooth finish. Quite a surprise.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I know this sounds weird but a pleasant farm smell, corn with hints of manure. Hazy golden color. Better taste than most lagers, lest yeast than your average. I’m still not a fan of lagers but this is pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the can into an imperial pint. Clear golden pour with a big creamy white pile of head. Strong corn aroma makes me hesitant. Smells like a stronger version of a macro. Flavor is quite a bit better than I expected after smelling it for a while. The flavor is sweet with some lingering corn. Not offensive at all. Pretty easy to drink. Don’t know if I would call this a pilsener though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden, large but rapidly dimishing head with blah lacing and retention. Aroma is bread, light grass and also corn. Light body and very drinkable. Lightly sweet finish, but how is this a pils if corn is here? Yes, it’s better than Miller but who cares?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can (12oz). Bubbly gold with a large fizzy/fluffy off-white head. Pretty standard sweet grainy malt, light floral hop aroma. The taste is fresh, with maybe a hint of rye grain, bitter grassy finish. Average to slightly chewy body, somewhat teeth-sqeakingly astringent, solid carbonation, no aftertaste - a solid patio/lawnmower beer, nothing special though.

pours a foamy white head and slightly hazy gold/yellow color. Aroma is grain, light (saaz?) hops. Taste is light malt, light (saaz?) hops. Light body, but not thin. Good carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(can - 12 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bitter hops, some metal flake, grains, grass, and corn. Flavor begins with a dry hop and grass taste with a grainy and corny middle and a very dry and bitter hop finish. Very thin bodied and easy to drink. Tastes like many other pilseners I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold-tinged yellow with a nice foamy head. This is exactly what I’d anticipate a pilsener to look like, but I can’t give this more than a three looking so thin. The nose is a big improvement. I’m struck first by the floral hops and second by the light dry bready malt. In This mouth, this is on the fizzy side of creamy with a lack of body, as per the style. The flavors are a little off, but largely clean. Bready, slightly toasty malt character, dry and well matched by a liberal floral hop. A little spicy, the finish is this and a bit sweet, but the aftertaste is all dry hop bitterness with some grain bitterness. I could kick back a six pack of this stuff in the right setting. A nice session in deed lacking any hint of adjunct. Bonus for the can factor.
