3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed 12/21/2012. 12 fl oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a perfectly clear golden straw color. The head is a fluffy two finger white color with surprising retention (for a macro lager). Good lacing, too.
S: AARGH LIGHTSTRUCK!!! Beneath the unfortunate skunk in the aroma, there lies simple pale malts and zesty noble hoppiness.
T: Thank smeg the flavor is a massive improvement. Initially, some fruity esters greet the palate, before the zesty, refreshing finish...AND IT’S GONE! Holy shit, did I finish the beer that quickly? It’s hardly BCBS, but as far as simple macro-brewed lagers go, this one’s the best in the business.
M: The palate feel seems perfectly tailored to provide crisp refreshment. There’s this real sense of subtle delicacy that separates this not only from the BMC stalwarts, but numerous craft lagers as well. The bitter aftertaste is fantastic for what this beer is trying to accomplish.
O: A damn shame about the skunky nose - luckily the rest of the beer easily compensates by offering everything you could want in a proper pilsner. Could be a go to for me in cans/on tap.

Actually, my intention was to not rate this, just leave a comment... RateBeer don’t allow this, so here we go... Beeing THE pilsner, the original, very first pilsner, this should cleerly have a solid 100 points for the style. Trying to discuss if this is up to the standards of correct style or not, is redicolous. 66 points overall just tells me it’s a lot of people that don’t like pilsner that have rated it. ’Nough said from this grumpy old man :-)

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
One of the best pilsners. Very refreshing. Nor much of an aroma, and generally boring appearance. But solid beer.
