2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from dcschiller on 1/31/11.
pale yellow color with a small white head.
smells and tastes a lot like every other pale lager... wouldn’t have guessed pils... honey, straw, spice and grain... a bit too sweet or maybe just not as crisp as i’ve come to expect.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just noticed that this beer is rated 46 overall, but 89 by style. This site should adjust its rating system - there shouldn’t be such a large difference between the two. This is an excellent pilsner, and its overall rating should be higher.
Anyway, the appearance is fine, with the normal pale golden color that you would expect. The head was very large, tons of foam. Light-bodied, slightly sour, with well-balanced pilsner malts & hops. Refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz can, purchased at People’s Liquor Warehouse - Warwick, RI. Aroma has a gentle hop, then some light corn, and a bit of apple cider to it. Surprisingly fruity. Somehow, over-carbonated. Hazy. There’s a slight overcarbonation to the beer. Infected, perhaps, I don’t know. I can’t decode "70608A38C" to guess what year this is from (pretty certain it’s not from 2008). Not as light, delicate, or clean for a Classic German example as I had hoped, especially with the prospect of it being available in can.

another beer from davey101, thanks bro. Poured out of a can into a glass cloudy yellow in color with a white head that leaves quickly. smell is hoppy and some lemons. taste is slightly bitter on the front but then sweet on the and citrusy. The finish is kinda bitter like the front. Nice refreshing beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a can at Julio’s on my way to EBF. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour yields a bright yellow beer with a very nice white head and quite a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward mild grain plus a touch of light Noble hops. The flavor is slightly bready with some grain and hay. Not too much spicy hop flavor, but there is a decent amount of bitterness in the finish. Feel is light and only moderately crisp, though not as much as I’d like for the style. Fairly drinkable and a nice brew on a rather warm Spring evening.
Serving type: can

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a bright hazy golden yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head has pretty decent retention and laces nicely down the glass.
S - Aroma is full of bread/yeasty elements mixed alongside a bit of grassy/piney hops for balance. Just a touch of malt comes through beneath.
T - Starts off with some light malt flavor with some bread flavor mixed in. This develops a bit and some spices join. Through the middle a bit of the hops come through and with some spices The finish is a mix of some hop bitterness and some yeasty flavor that lingers nicely. Very nicely balanced.
M - Medium-light bodied and fairly carbonated. Super clean and crisp mouthfeel overall. Very clean finish.
D - Very drinkable. Clean and crisp from start to end, but still enough flavor to keep it enjoyable. The flavor is really nice all around.

Aroma muted by this excessively massive head after waiting a minute,got an almost wheat like tang,almost suckerish,some grain,flavor is upfront bitterness with some floating grain again,again a wheat like tang in flavor,doesnt taste like the good German pils I’ve had,would have like to had a little more malt,I know the German style emphasizes the bitterness, but this was just to much hop

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz can). Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma of florals and grass. Taste is a sweet malt backbone with a definite hope bite up front and at the end. Medium bodied with slick texture. Finish is slightly bitter and has a bite. Not bad.
