"hoping for a little more, both Simpler Times beers were in the drinkable on a hot day catergory. nothing more, nothing less. not horrible, but not what i look for in a beer, or pilsner, regardless of price. A couple of the better macros are actually better than this."

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This stuff is kind of remarkably bad for the specific reason that it is remarkably metallic. It is clear orange golden in the glass w/ a huge foamy head. It smells kind of grainy and sweet, possibly slightly oxidized, with some grassy and earthy hop notes. It tastes like chewing on a brillo pad although, as you might imagine, the texture is a bit different this being a liquid and all. it is kind of simply sweet rather than malty and feels a bit thick and flat, which really doesn’t work for the style at all. While the initial shock of the metallic stuff wanes pretty quickly and this almost becomes drinkable, there is still a unpleasantly bitter character to the finish. It is so extremely easy to find tasty examples of this style (cheap American beer rather than Pilsener) that this stuff is just completely useless.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can. Pours a golden color with a frothy white head and lots of carbonation. Apple aroma. Sweet beginning and a bit of alcohol at the end. Cheap and not good, a drain pour for me. For simpler times, I can go get a bud or colors which are much better.

60 cents a can at Trader Joe’s. Not bad for the price, clean, clear and crisp pilsner. Plenty of adjunct grains here, a little light o aroma and taste, and no finish, but great on a hot day (it’s been in the 100’s here, so it tastes good right about now)

$3.99 six pack from Trader Joes. For what it is, it’s not bad. Straw flavor and lots of adjunct taste, but still somewhat refreshing.

It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was grainy with powdery malts and some bread dough. The taste was of grains, grassy hops, malts and some corn.

I’ve definitely had worse pilsners, and for the price, this really can’t be beat. This is a great lawn mower beer. Keep it real cold and it’ll treat you nice.
