3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is mostly bready with hints of grass and lemon. Pours pale yellow with no head and some light haze. The flavor has a hint of fruitiness not usually found in a lager. This is followed by bread, grass, and a light pepper note. There is a slight metallic note that I picked up towards the end. Light with crisp carbonation. Lingering grassy notes.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Can. Aroma of lemon with touches of grassy, leafy hops. Flavor continues to be very leafy with large doses of doughy malt. However, a harsh graininess and astringency work their way in, along with some diacetyl. In the end, not very good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of diacetyl and grainy cardboardy wheat malt. Tastes alright at first, very sweet though and then a diacetyl and wheaty finish. Blargh, this was pretty bad, especially the diacetyl. A flawed beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
This unfiltered German-style Pilsener offers hay-like cereals over grassy hops, while a lemony edge accompanies the herbal, leafy finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam thins out over the hazy straw yellow.
-The pils malts are quite bulky; this could be crisper, methinks.
-That citrusy character is pleasant, but also atypical at times.
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout, but I admit I would have liked a more compelling finish.
-This is not a very memorable pils, but it is still quenching.

Can. One of the better pilseners I have had though I’m not a big fan of the style. Pours hazy golden. Tastes soapy, citrusy and somewhat sweet. Good for what it is.
