Postmortem Brew Review
Clear golden color.
Small bit of grain smell with bright hops.
Firm white full bubbled head.
Moderate amount of carbonation.
Very good lacing on glass.
Slight tartness and grainy malts up front with bittering hops finish.
Light, refreshing mouth feel and body. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
I have had this Pils both in the bottle and on tap. On tap, it is much more fresh and flavorful than its bottle counterpart. But that should come as no surprise. Bottle beer sometimes sits on shelves or is subject to mishandling in temperature or light conditions. That is not to say this was the case with this bottle. It was tasty, but the same day I also happened to find it on draft at my local watering hole and it seemed far more lively in the glass.

It is a nice pilsener, not truly remarkable, but a good working standard of the style. I found it a bit drier than most and a little grainy at times during the session.
