This reasonably priced pilsner from Waterloo pours lemon-straw, with a healthy head, and offers a light tang of malt on the nose; the hops are subdued, with a very minor citrus element.

Lightly malty, with a hint of orange zest and honey somewhere in the mix, this pilsner is true to its nature by offering a creamy mouthfeel with healthy carbonation.

The finish is clean and crisp, with a light bitterness that refreshes the palate and makes it a great to pair with meals; try spicy tofu and sweet potatoes.

Serve in a classic Pilstulpe if available—otherwise a pint glass, chalice, or Solo cup will do just fine.

Because of its well-balanced taste and low cost, this beer qualifies for the coveted Hoochsavvy POWER PERFORMER!

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
