Canned or bottled? Cloudy pastel gold, fine low head. Malty pilsner nose, citrus hops. A bit of DMS corn. Flavor of citrus, cabbage, nise hops but too much veggie DMS. OK.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL can thanks to Travlr. Very fresh I think. Clear bright straw. Massive white foam. Huge retention and sheets of lacing. Nose is fresh lemon, fresh noble hops, honeydew, crackery wheat, fresh biscuit. Taste is clean, quenching, long grassy soapiness. Long bitter aftertaste with sourdough cracker. Hints of metallic twang are off putting. But well crafted.

Can courtesy of Adam of Somalia, thank you sir! Cloudy pale yellow fluffy white head, delicate lacing. Aroma of white pepper, hay, light dust. Taste is pretty clean and crisp, with a bit of biscuit, pepper, white bread. Not bad.

12oz can in a footed pilsner. Pours light golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral hops, a good amount of pale malts, and dough. Flavor about the same, with a good amount of hops for this beer. Light. A decent beer for the style.

Translucent yellow with a dense white head. Medium body with high carbonation.
Aroma: pilsner malt, salty minerality, peppery herbal hops.
Taste: nutty grainy pale malt, fruity notes, salty minerality, herbal hop bitterness.
Not soft or clean, like pilsners i prefer.

New style yellow can...meaning its pretty damn fresh. Props to NEBCO for the label change, much more appealing!
A- Super clear light yellow body with lots of rising carbonation. Massive fluffy white head forms, but settles down quickly to a patchy cap with large bubbles. A bit of sticky lacing.
S - Grass, light piney hops, a touch of lemon zest, and toasted grains. Very simple yet inviting.
T - Its all there. Starts off with some lemon and grass, then fades into the toasty grains and malts. The finish is light yet hoppy with a lingering bitterness. Mouth feel is thin and watery with decent crisp carbonation.
O - Pretty decent pilsner with a low hop profile but a lot of lasting bitterness. Was hoping for a bit more grain and toast, but oh well. A decent session beer on a hot summer day.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Modern Apizza
Pours golden and clear with a small but fairly well retained head.
The aroma is a little bit herbal, hop forward but kind of dull and sweet smelling as well.
The flavor follows, the herbal hops have a little bit of a clash with some of the malt flavors. The beer is a bit astringent and while I like the bitterness of it I feel like the hopping could use a little more finesse.
Good to see a beer like this out there, worked well with pizza.

Can. Super-pale yellow, bubbly and active with a sticky white head. Super starchy, with a grassy finish that seems to be common to American lagers, vice those from the German heartland. Doesnít quite reach the "crisp" snap Iíd like in a light lager like this. (#4409, 12/18/2011)
