Can @ John’s 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 don’t 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.

The "American" aspect of this American Pils is its higher hop bill, and that makes it a Keeper indeed. Clear golden pour. Dank hop aroma. Hop-forward taste with earth and some zesty citrus. Quite a bit of bitterness and dryness at the finish. Just what I like from a Pils.

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.

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

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.

12 ounce can into lager glass, unreadable can dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color, with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great hoppy American Pilsner style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Can at home. Slightly hazy golden orange colour. Faint sweetness from a malt base. Some citrus notes, subtle hop bite. Splendid :)
