Thanks gregwilsonstl! Tasted from can into nucleated pint glass. Poured a golden-amber color with weak white foam which left behind a small ring of bubbles and a little lace. Aroma of pils malt, white bread and faint noble hops. Very mellow, mild flavor. Malt sweetness is nearly cancelled out by tangy, slightly spicy hops bitterness. Light-medium body, spritzy carbonation, neutral lager fermentation, bittersweet aftertaste. No glaring flaws or adjuncts. A boring style to me, but this one seems to be well-crafted and true-to-style. Much better than most canned beer, I’ll grant that. I love that it actually states, "Please recycle. Pack it in, pack it out."

Pour golden yellow with a small white head. Has a bit of a floral aroma, a fruity (peaches) taste and a bitter palate. Could be better but it could also be a whole lot worse.

State week month, week 1 Oct 2nd - 8th. State: Arizona.

This and many others generously sent to me by a gentleman of great esteem in Scottsdale. Thanks Dave!

The beer pours a golden color with a small loose head that leaves very good lace on the glass. The beer has a lot of effervescent bubbles.

The beer has a good dose of bright malt aroma matched with a light hay character and fruity hops.

The flavor is really on the hoppier side of what we’ve come to know as "American Pilsner" There are some nice peachy notes with a bit of honey. The hops provide a mild bitterness that doesn’t fully match up to the general sweetness of the beer.

Overall this is pretty enjoyable.

(On draught at cruisers). Pours clear golden color with thin white head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is grassy, has some florals and biscuit. Taste is sweet with some peppery bitterness. Thin bodied with slick/oily texture. Bitter finish. Not bad. Crisp.

marcus (7296) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy of beerboxer. Pours clear golden with a thin white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty light malt flavor with some carbonation and dry bitter finish. Not bad for a pilsner.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle at the Rusty Spur in Scottsdale, AZ. Clear light sunflower pour supporting a thin white head. Mild grassy aroma. Not much in the flavors to make you sip and take notice. A bit of toasted cereal here, a sprinkling of lemony citrus there. Texture a tad thin but not unusually so for a Pilsner. Weak finish. Much better than any evil macro conglomerate swill but far below the really good craft Pilsners like Trumer, Victory Prima or Avery Joe’s.

Thanks mom! Bright gold, sticky heavy creamy white head. Rich sweet nose with notes of orange and lemon. Full bodied malt backbone, light roast, long lingering mild earthy hops. Very nice beer.
