Can via trade. Can gushed upon opening, and I had to struggle to get a couple oz of liquid into a glass before the foam overtook everything. Even when sipping, the carbonation bubbles filled my mouth and dominated all other senses. Strange stuff. Kind of a grassy, mildly citrusy hopped pils. Okay.

Draft at Churchkey. Extra pale yellow color, massive fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper and hay. Taste is bittersweet and fruity, easy drinking.

jbruner (2317) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
From the can at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma and taste go toward the pils malt and crisp yeast esters, back end of grassy citrus hops. Good carbonation, clean and easy, not bad.

Can pours a fairly hazy pale straw yellow color with large white head. Pale pils malt aroma, light citrus hop character, clean. Crisp, pale malt, light hop flavor - citrusy and piney, moderate bitterness, fairly clean tasting overall.

Nice crisp pale lager. Nice hop profile, not a ton of malt flavor, Nice balance between yeast and hops flavor addition. crushable and quenching.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Can from a local bodega. Aroma of stale bread and corn. Pours light amber with decent carbonation for a bubbly head. Taste is stale cornbread and just a hint of a peppery hop. Light mouthfeel but enough of a malt backbone to make this tiresome after a couple. Meh. Met my low expectations.

Can at Savor. This one does what it is supposed to. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Very tasty and enjoyable.

12oz can thanks to GreatDane from his free beer contest 2014. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw color with a finger of bright white frothy head. Aroma of sweet grain, grassy hops, and faint citrus. Taste is also grassy, slightly yeasty, with some earthy bitterness, and some citrus zest. Definitely one of the top lagers I've had. Solid
