Shiner 101 Czech Style Pilsner

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a golden color with a frothy, light head that although not especially well-retained it does produce some significant lace.
Nose and tastes create a feel of a Pils without the true Saaz-like kick in the back end. Some light, white pepper that for a second seems like we have a Belgian Pale note, but it fades and the bitterness does not figure.
Relatively light and easy drinking, but a beer that ultimately seems fairly pedestrian. Grassy notes are missing and beer lacks a certain crispness for me. Seems a bit lightweight all around to me.
I’d be happy to drink a few at a summer gathering but beyond that I’m not reaching much for that.
