Lightning Elemental Pilsner

Type: pilsner
Origin: Poway, California
Price: $4.50 per 22 oz

Andy put up a Lightning review a few days ago, so I decided to crack this baby that has been in the fridge for a few weeks. And let me tell you something: this is the best pilsner I've had outside of the Czech Republic. It has the basic characteristics of a good pilsner: golden color, soft head, light hops, nice sweetness, smooth taste. There is one amazing difference that I cannot figure out. My first thought was "this tastes like a mother fucking lightning bolt", but then had to reassure myself that lighting has no taste. The best way to describe it is a light fruit undertone. Just. Fucking. Good.
