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.

On tap @ C.B. Huntington’s (Bayville NJ). Pours a clear golden color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of light citrus, and grain. Taste of citrus, orange skins, honey, lemon, earthy hops, and a metallic aftertaste.

Ron (2680) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. The aroma is predominantly yeast bread and some sweetness. The beer is a nice golden color with a decent fluffy white head. The taste is sweet with some bread notes and barely a touch of hops. The beer is clean and smooth.

metalhead0043 (144) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2013
12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue. White head. Smells like a pilsner, malts, a little citrus and is a little sweet. A little grassy too. Taste is similar. Some caramel/toffee notes on the back end,. Very crisp and easy to drink. Best pilsner I have had so far.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Golden-amber color with a thin, soft white head. Sugary-malty aromas with some fruit esters. The aromas match the flavors, as it is very fruit-forward with just enough hop to balance it out. This is not your typical pilsner, but it is a tasty beer in its own right.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle at Irish Whiskey DC. Amber body with medium head. Nose is malty, sweet and caramel. Taste is caramel, hops, caramel with creamy texture. Packs a punch in the finish.

keanex (1503) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Best before August 2013.
Appearance: The body is clear with a honey color to it, the head is short and dense, leaving a creamy coating on top.
Aroma: Lemon is the first thing that comes to mind, like the Lemon Drop candies. The aroma is light though and hides much of what went into the beer. There’s hints of malt sweetness, but not much else.
Taste: Very simple, light malt sweetness with hints of caramel towards the finish with a light overlying hop profile that reminds me of orange, lemon and slightly spicy.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is mildly interesting, but when all is said and done this is forgettable. I don’t dislike the beer, but nothing about it draws me to want to buy it again.

finn1918 (198) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours a dark gold/light orange with a small white head. Aroma is almost entirely citrusy hops, with some banana and skunky saaz coming through. Taste is superficially like a highly hopped pils, but with some odd layers of banana and candy. Light, refreshing mouthfeel. Overall, not at all what I was expecting, but it gets points for originality I guess.

I can’t lie. I was looking to check of another style rate. This allowed me to get a new state as well. Pours darker than a Pils to a color I would describe as very pale amber. Head is white. Aroma is earthy with the lightest touch of citrus. Flavor is a medium light sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Slightly thicker than a standard Pils with slightly less carbonation. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA
