Can @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear golden amber color, thick foamy white head, swaths of lace. This looks delicious like any All-American beer in ads from fifty years ago. Wow. Aroma of light malt and citrus. Taste is three pronged - sweet malt opens things, followed by citrus hops that donít take over, but are clearly there, then malt again as it moves to a lingering finish. And what is that? Light hops keep pulsing in until all disappears. A really solid light pilsner - challenges any of the best from Germany.

There was a time when "imported" beer made in the U.S. -- just like any "contract brew" would have been laughed at. Now it seems that things are really different.

Fukito (776) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 18, 2014
Can. Clear golden color with a nice medium white head and effervescent carbonatation. Aroma is tropical fruits with a slight buttery note and a hay bitter finish. Medium to light palate, very drinkable tasty and refreshing. Very solid.

Packed with hops and citrus tones. More powerful than many American Pale Ales

Jojojam (65) - Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellowish 3 finger head. Very clean smelling, some hops some hop. Medium mouthfeel. Hops very present on the taste, nice hop bite on the finish. Lots of juiceness. Drinks more like a pale ale than a pils. For a 5 abv his super, Fantastic sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can from total wine camelback. Pours golden with a shitload of carbonation. lots of white foam. leaves some lacing in the glass. has some grassy hop notes on the nose. very grassy on the tongue. I like pilsners that have a hop bite to them and this is one of the best ones of the style.

This one has some very interesting aromas, like cedar, toast, and perhaps some other stuff. A very complex nose. Taste is quite hoppy. Not Noble or Saaz hops, but rather cascade, centennial, and other IPA style strong hops. Very, very clean and smooth finish. This is a very well-made beer, and I enjoyed drinking it. It does not, however, remind one of a German or Czech pils. It tastes more like an American Pale Ale. The beer is described as an American Pilsner. What is an American Pilsner? Like Budweiser or Miller Lite, or rather the typical American craftbrewer attempts at finely nuanced German and Czech pils? Because I have yet to find an American craftbrewer who can make a decent version of the fine Euro pilsners. They usually end up tasting like a light version of IPA, or just pale ale. Rant off. This is still a good drinking beer, however.

jefcon (1419) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2014
Can. Hazel pour. Caramel, light yeasting, grass and hay, birch. The jewel of this beer is the center palate of floral, lavender, perfumed notes. Everything is in balance in this extremely flavorful pils.

Another canned brew 2 crush w/Jakebra
Pours a nice pale golden with a good sized head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is really enjoyable, hop forward & piney with some light citrus fruit & a little bit of bready malt. It does smell a touch sweet as thought it might have that Eastern Euro breakfast cereal thing happening if it were not consumed in short order, but as is the aroma is great & that element is either buried or under control.

The flavor is nice, again,,, hop forward, but I think thatís well within the tradition of Pilsners from this area like Pikeland & Prima. This falls right in suit with those beers, simple malt bill, clean fermentation, & an IPA style hop bill. Iíll admit Iím a real sucker for these sorts of things. The bitterness is well controlled, but lingers very well. The hop flavor is primarily grassy & fruity with a nice herbal character to round it out.

Oh I dig, I think this was a much greater success than Better Half.

glennmastrange (2319) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Can. Light grain and caramel for the malt, heavy pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of coriander and a mix of light dried fruit. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and good legs. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, a litlle slick with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. Nice citrus-y hops tops off this tasty Pilsener.
