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.

Somewhat darker than a true pils -- uses pils and carapils malts but isn’t a pilsner. Still nice golden color. Easy pour produces a dense, lingering head and some fine lace. Some floaters and sediment. Aromas of straw, bread, herbs, malt and yeast. Taste is nicely peppered with noble hops (it’s hopped with 4 hops), balanced well with good full-bodied malt character. Good and bitter. Mouthfeel was chewy, coating the tongue for a lingering finish.

What’s üp with the über bit? This had a crazy head that did diminish slowly but büilt back everytime I poüred more. Thoüght that it wasn’t all to much more that an average, everyday pils üntil I had a few sips and the hops sünk in - tad thicker or even moreso than that average pils and sure as hell hopped to sürpass that not quite büt almost chewyness. Enjoyable, but a bit of a müddled affair.

On tap at Andy’s. Clear light amber color with a medium sized white head. Sweet, fruity aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and hops. Flavor starts off malty sweet with the above mention fruitiness but finishes with a nice hoppy bite. I really enjoyed this one.

SpringsLicker (3380) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Saaz hop aroma, lemon and melon. Light body, smooth with a good malt flavor and a finish that leaves the palate clean, not sticky and sweet or bitter.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JUL 17, 2005
Pours a carbonated yellow with a average white head. Aroma is hoppy for a pils. Taste is clean, hoppy and hides the 7.5% extremely well. A great pils.

A nice white head and a citrus like aroma. A nicely hopped flavor with a malty undertone.

jimhilt (2540) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pours a five-fingered white head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Cloudy light amber color. Hoppy/malty nose. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Starts malty/hoppy with some sweetness, finish is clean with some hoppiness. Nice pilsner. $1.45 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2005
12oz bottle poured a deep golden color with a fluffy thick head. Aroma of lemon a touch of malts and nice grainy malts. Flavor is sweet yet a little fruit (lemon and apple) also can be found. This is medium bodied and fairly crisp. I had no idea these were 7% alcohol. They were pretty easy to drink last night!

murawski (160) - USA - JUN 30, 2005
Tried at a local tasting from a rep. from the brewery in nearby Baltimore -- and liked it enough to bring home a six pack. Larg, frothy head with a nice clean golden color. Minimal aroma at first, but I feel that as the lager had some time to breath it gained a sweeter, yeasier aroma. Overall, decent but nothing to write home to mom about.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Slighty hazy dark golden color with a fat, foamy sticky head. Great aromas of spicy hops that have a hint of lemon peel, rich biscuity malts and a yeasty snap. Not as crisp as the aromas would lead on. Prickly mouthfeel, but from carbonation, not so much acid. a bit flabby and fruity, with an apple flavor on the finish. Needs to be just a bit cleaner/crisper, IMO, and it would be a knockout.
