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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 This is an exceptional beer and available in cans. Props to NEBCO for canning this. This is everything a canned beer should be, light crisp and delicious!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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. Doesn’t quite reach the "crisp" snap I’d like in a light lager like this. (#4409, 12/18/2011)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild creamy lemon aroma.Bright yellow with a mild haze. Pillow head that lingers for awhile. Medium bitter and sourness but not offensive. Has a nice clean finish. Not bad overall but seems to lack a stand out feature. I would drink one again as it is refreshing and drinkable.

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.
