I thought that this beer was mediocre at best. Obviously mainstream oriented. Faint hop bite to the body, but not a lot in the way of aroma or any kind of distinguishing characters. On par with something like Molson Export.

Decent pilsner. Very light and cloudy colored. Sharply crisp and dry. An earthy/floral hop mix with some lemony rind hints as well. Overall a good drinking brew.

Ligh gold in color, white head and fine lace. Some malts noted at the start, some what sweet at the top and a bit of hops noticed at the fairly dry finish. Clean and fresh as a pilner should be, not bad for a non-dark beer, quite drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Stonehammer has suffered a lot lately. At one time a credible German pils, this now has a lighter body, a lot less hop and less malt. All round, it is no longer a pilsner, let alone a good one.
