3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can: Pours a clear golden color with a slender white head. Excellent carbonation. The aroma is fairly grainy, a light malt, and fairly lightly hopped for a pilsener. A sweet maltiness penetrates into the flavor and the light floral hops just give a short nip on the finish. Not a bad drink, but I wouldn’t have taken it for a pils.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with a small but stable white lid. Decent lace. Pale malt aromas with a touch of noble hops. Aromas more in the lines of a helles lager than a pils. Flavor right in line with a helles lager as well, with pale malt, and lemon grass hops. A touch salty in the finish and a clean near crisp linger. A simple picnic brew.

Can. You have no idea, those of you who live in places with massive beer distribution, how exciting it is for me to find a beer I've never heard of, much less seen, in an out-of-the-way liquor store in a small town. Even more of a thrill when I find that I'm only going to be the third rater of this. Whoa I'm special! Well at least until I pop the top on the can...
Pours light golden, very clear, big frothy large-bubbling head. Light grainy aroma with a tinge of metal, not promising. Flavor isn't bad, certainly better than a lot of macros, but I don't get the "crispness" mentioned by zool ... seems very soft and decarbonated-soda-like to me. Some chewy breadiness appears later down the line, and the finish is smooth and quaffable. It's ok, and for $1.25 its conceivable I'd buy it again. If there wasn't anything else.

500ml can. Yellow orange with a small white head. Light flowery aroma with a bit of grain. Ends slightly bitter, and crisp. One of the best beers that I've ever had out of a can.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden color,small white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a slight lace behind.The aroma was grainy and sorta sweet with a light hop presence in there to go along with the lemony hints.The flavor was not bad,grainy at first with just a bit of what seemed like maybe burnt caramel or something.Then towards the middle it sweetens up a bit and a mild hop showing towards the end.Not bad but then again not great eather,but it’s worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold. Thick, white foam leaving a swath of lace. Sparse carbonation. Clean aroma of toasted white bread, hay and spicy hops. Crisp, bold and assertive. Immediate toasty malts with a hay background. Smooth, clean and sharp. Feisty hop bitterness but light on flavor. Light body. Quenching with a brisk aftertaste. Loses its malty oomph as it sits. Blandness creeps in as well. Surprisingly no metal taste, except for the occasional well water minerals. Finishes with a surge of floral hops which linger atop the dry, mown hay essence which is this brews hallmark. A very nice find.
