Can. A pilsner-pale lager type american hybrid. Listen: this tastes like the real deal American pale lager. What your dads drank. Old style, coors, yuengling, this is a beer that brings back that style. Some bohemian pilsner style hops in the nose, light corn.Flavor is lightly sweet, grainy, with an overriding cascade of lightly bitter hops. A good ole american beer.

Reviewed 4/9/2009 (Can):
Pours a very clear yellow color body some small white color head quickly diminishing. Malty somewhat skunky aroma, some mustiness. Not overly strong. Light lagery taste. Some graininess. And a hoppy aftertaste. A little skunky tasting but not too bad. Some lager maltiness. Very carbonated.

Comes out of the can with a fizzy white head sitting on top of a crystal clear yellow body. Looks incredibly refreshing but the head fades to nothing within a minute or so. A grassy honey aroma with a hint of lemon. Flavor is full and pleasant. A nice touch of bitterness at the finish compliments the honey in the body. A little thick but the flavor throughout makes up for it.

Clear yellow, and fairly bubbly. Nice white head. Some corn in the aroma, plus some mellow floral hops. Nicely crisp, and a tad sweet. Peppery finish. Nicely quaffable and tasty.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours clear yellow with a 2 finger snow white head that results in nice lacing. The nose is malt and light citrus. The taste is grain, sweet malt and grassy hops with some lemon zest in the finish. Medium mouth feel. Not one of their better offerings, but drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can courtesy of oakes and beershine. Pale gold pour with a white head. Grainy and malty on the nose with less hops than I would have expected. Flavor has some honey and malt with very weak hops. This beer is not nearly as good as I expected. Tastes like they are trying to marke to miller lite fans.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can of course. Pours golden yellow, white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy, and alcoholic. Flavor is malt, corn, wheat, hops, alcohol. Not well blended and there’s a fair amount of chemical bitterness. I feel like I either have to chug this or pour it. Ah hell, I’ll chug it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another winner from Oskar Blues. It’s not as good as Dale’s, but its a pilsner. And pilsners like hefes vary little from decent to good and from good to great. This one differed enough to make it great for a pils. Not too dry and bitter like some can be. Big fluffy white head, yella body coloring with minimal carbonation. I do love the can aspect and found this at a new beer shop, so it was all around good one for me.

Extraordinarily underwhelming. Big fan of pils, big fan of OB, and HUGE fan of cans. Oh well.
Very typical pils with not enough hop bite and a bit of sweetness that kept it from being refreshing
Still haven’t had a good pils that was made outside of PA..

Deep straw almost golden colored pour that has been filtered. Big white fluffy head. Nose is grass, straw, and czech hops. Taste is corn, butter, and honey glazed buns. I ate this with a hot cross bun. Now I have 3 buns left and 5 shitty beers. Thumbs down.
