Can pour. Poured a medium golden yellow, good head. Aroma was floral and spicy hops. Flavor was crackery malts followed by a spicy hop and slightly floral finish. Definite hop bitterness bite on the end. Perhaps not the "cleanest" pils I’ve had, but quite enjoyable at the beach between volleyball matches.

Decent barley profile here and some nice saaz, hallertau hops. Not sure of the colour for I drank it in a can. Crisp and slightly bitter finish. Can at Solly’s.

Can, labeled as simply Rhino Chasers Pilsner: Starfruit and lemon zest nose. Cloudy golden, thick lacy head. Very starfruity, mild lemon zest finish. Medium body. Sure to piss off the pils purists, but I found enjoyment in it.

The 12oz can doesn’t mention the word Pacific anywhere. Has a nice hazy yellow body, hint of green that really is true to style. Foamy white head. Straightforward session beer done right. A little heavy, but the taste and balance are really right on. The hops aren’t mesmerizing, but are certainly present. Can’t really hang at the pricepoint, but this is a great session beer..I’d drink growlers of this. Respectable offering for sure.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 Draft at the brewpub. Golden and pure. Drinks with a nice malty body and a Teutonic hop flourish. Good pils. <<Re-rated and slightly downgraded after drinking from the can in May 2014.>> (#5381, 11/30/2013)

Tick system sucks enough to get me to start rating again. Pours a golden color with a small lacy off white head. Notes of grass, cereal, honey, and earth. Just ok

draft at American Taproom The pilsener poured a clear straw color with a small white head and lacing. This is beer with some nice bitterness. The 55 IBU appears to work for the pilsener. The crisp hop aroma and balanced dry bitterness was a special experience. This pils had medium body with average carbonation. The european hops were a perfect fit for this beverage. They create a finish that has a balanced dry bitterness that was very appealing.
