From the brewer

Bright traditional taste. A classic pilsner with roots in the great beer heritage of the Czech Republic. Our Czech-Style Pilsner features Saaz hops supporting layers of rounded malt flavors. As right today as it was a few hundred years ago. From a place that’s weathered a few trends in its time; here, history never gets old.

Who's been drinking this

Whatever I didn't like about this before I had the opposite reaction to it this time. It's bold and grassy, flavorful, bitter finish.
So this loses some points just for being misadvertised. This does not taste at all like a Czech pilsner - it's got a lot of bright, dry hopped northwest hop flavors and the cereal is subdued. Moderate to strong bitterness. Decent for what it is, but I wanted something else.
