Pours a clear light gold. Has a strong corn and cheese aroma. Taste is simiale to any pilsner but with some wheat and cheese flavor. Interesting beer...

Aromas of wheat and bread with a little celery and cheese. A large fizzy white head that lasts. Clear yellow. Medium body with thin texture. The finish is slightly metallic and bitter. A nice refreshing beer when you want something light.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by October 9th 2013... since thatís five months away, my assumption is that this beer is probably very fresh.
Appearance: It looks like any other pilsener would -- a crystal clear yellow color. As many would affectionately refer to it as, it looks like piss. Not much lacing small white ring on top. Looks pretty ordinary.
Smell: A lot of hay, and also grain. As thereís a big hop on the logo of this beer, I was expecting a pretty nice hop presence, and there *is* one. Itís not so big that it morphs this into some sort of pilsener/IPA hybrid, but itís more than welcome -- especially in the taste.
Taste: Yeah, probably the best pilsener Iíve had. It has that typical flavor youíd expect from a pilsener, but the hops lift it up a little bit. This is the most bitter beer Iíve had from the style, but itís not extreme, which I wouldnít expect. The amount of hops here compliment everything nicely. This is definitely a pilsener for hopheads. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, but has a nice body, given the style. A very good choice for a summer beer.
Not a *super* interesting beer, but itís above average for a pilsener. Iím not nearly as high on this beer as the majority of reviewers, but itís still well worth trying out.

Bottle. Medium yellow with average sized foamy white head. Fresh cut grass, grain, and light herbal bitterness. Light in flavor with just the slightest bitterness to finish. Smooth drinking, just heavier than water with very fine carbonation.

Pours a golden straw with a disappearing white head. Grassy aroma. Taste is grassy and bready upfront with a surprising hop strong finish. Bitter bitter bitter. Too bitta. Some floral notes. More depth than Urquell.

I recently posted a thread on BA asking people about their favorite "flagship" brews. This one came up a lot, and with good reason. Iíve had this pilsener many times, but not in a while, and Iíve never reviewed it:
Ap: Sunflower yellow/gold, with about a 1/2 inch head and moderate carbonation.
Ar: Victory hop profile and then some! This is just pure malty, yeasty, flowery goodness!
T: German hops are present, and the beer is mildly sweet, with a slight bitter hop finish. No unpleasant lingering - everything is great!
P: Smooth as silk; Very "clean" beer and nearly flawless in regards to mouthfeel related to style.
O: I think I drank this one in about 2 minutes!
Quite simply, the best pilsener on the market!
