Can at the November DC Gathering. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was light lemon, yeast notes. Flavor was light sweet notes. Actually very refreshing and not a malt bomb like so many of these can be.

Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a strong note of diacetyl, lighter note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wow, I figured Sly Fox would a safe brewer for a pils; I used to love Pikeland Pils, although I don’t know if it’s any good anymore. This one here is a butter bomb, and has some vegetable juice as well...and even though the hops are prominent too, they’re the raw resinous-grapefruit pith kind. Harsh bitterness and a not-so-clean aftertaste makes the drinking experience unpleasant too. A big disappointment.

rodbod (105) - SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2015
tasted at Dark Lord Sunday (20th Sept 2015). In my opinion, this is too hoppy to be called a Pilsner. A delicious, light, blonde beer with a strong hoppy note through it.

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Can from Kwiker #2 on the way to the PMR in Fort Walton. Clear yellow color with a big, foamy white head. Huge aroma of west coast hops with some pine sap. The flavor is much more toned down fitting a traditional pils but there is some long lingering bitterness. Nice play on the style and tasty at 5%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (6535) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Ft. Lauderdale, Total Wines - 12 oz can. Hazy very light orange pour, soft snow white head with a fair trace of lacing. Aroma has some light yeasty accents, a touch of lemony citrus. Crisp flavor, some honey sweetness, some sweet cake mix like malty notes, a touch of lemony citrus and some light saffron spiciness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty solid Pils.
