COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: Über Pils ABV: 7% IBUs: 35 Availability: Year-round Hops: Warrior, Palisade, French Strisselspalt, Saaz, Simcoe, Cascade Malts: 2-row, Munich, Caramalt Arguably our most well-balanced beer, Small Craft Warning seems at once hop-forward and malt-forward; our brewers debate over which flavor force prevails in the beer. Small Craft exemplifies a robust pilsner—it’s crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly sweet. The beer is characterized by a firm malt backbone and a pronounced hop character. A fine aroma, from an array of hops, completes this quaffable beer.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle @ home via jcnielsen courtesy toss. Pours a surprisingly dark orange appearance with a thin off white head. Some orange candy, sweet toasted malty, bready aroma with a touch of cardboard. Carbonation is dull. Some citrus fruits in the flavor. Dull toasted grainy flavor. Strong finish. Not very good. Maybe a fresher bottle could have been better but I don’t think so.

Bottle. Clear dark gold with a thin ring of white head. Aroma is bready maul and Noble hops. Very pungent. Taste follows suit with some fruity sweetness on the end. Not as crisp as I'd like. Not terrible.

jhliesen (753) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle--gold to yellow color with a large, white head. Soft malt based aroma with some bread. Bread taste was up front with a solid malt base. Finish was thick for a piles with low carbonation. Might be the beat pils i ever drank. Produce place. $1.79.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2014
Logged in from untappd - for a pilsner its not bad as it has some flavor. Still tough to give any pilsner a mark
