I have been on a bit of a pilsner kick lately and saw this at a local beer and wine store. It is a bit darker than I expected and has a very nice bitterness. The finish is sweeter than a german or czech pils which I find disappointing. I like em dry. Not a bad beer by any stretch, but not one I will be buying again. The bottle is pretty cool, it is a large bottle with a grolsch type top.
