Name of beer reviewing: Lake Louie Pilsner

Type of beer: Pilsner (Czech)

ABV: 5 percent

Pre-tasting: Very excited to try this pilsner! Love the fishing lure label – it appeals to my sense of collecting antique fishing lures!! The smell is mildly hoppy, color is a lovely light golden. It sits sidesaddle on the palate; aftertaste is a tiny bit bitter (in a good way), delicate and easy drinking for sure! Exhibits a virginal (?) effervescence – oh yeah! (Okay, my husband Ted helped me with this J) Definitely has a handcuffed happiness.

Post-tasting: I want more!!

You'll like this beer if: Perfectly paired with binging on Netflix episodes (smirk).

You'll dislike this beer if: If you have a really bad cold and can't taste it!

Rating 1 — 10: 8
