A Can, yes I said a can which I poured into a pint glass. Big white head, yellow in color. Bland aroma, which made me weary, but I was pleasantly surprised at the hops of this one. Clean and easy on the palate as well. Finished strong. Actually much better than I expected.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a nice golden color with a good head that leaves some lace. The aroma is pretty gosh darned faint which put me off right away, but when you get your nose in there there is some spicy hop and some bready notes, but I generally prefer a beer that I don’t have to work so hard to find an aroma on. The flavor is very good, nicely hoppy with some baguette like maltiness and a mild salty character, pretty standard well made American pilsner.
I liked this beer but I expected oh so much more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin straw yellow with some bite. Little head. Decent mouthfeel, rather thin, but substantial, a little more nuanced and grassy with a touch of some herbal hops there. An earthy vibe for sure, featuring a sturdiness to the brew which lack a little flexibility to compliment the other flavors. Solid for the style.

I’m not really a fan of pilsners, but this one is pretty good. The aroma is semi sweet with subtle hints of hops. It’s pretty smooth and goes down really well.

Can. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a large, foamy, white head that slowly fades. Taste is floral, of wheat, hops and malt. Same aftertaste that is slightly bitter. Similar aroma. Reminds me of a wheat beer. Slightly oily body. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Worth picking up again, especially during the summer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma - all yeast and crystal malts, no hops present. it smells crisp, like lemon juice with subtle grapefruit and undertones of banana peel. appearance? light golden straw crossed with dehydrated urine, hehehe. Taste - mellow, crisp, juicy citrus, faint tropical fruit, minimal salty finish. great with sushi and sashimi. lighter fare paired on purpose. tasty from the can. slight spice from carbonation, not from flavor. Yella Pils needs food.

The Dan Journal #301. Tasted 9/14/09. 12oz Can. Filtered with a brigth honey golden hue. White ring of head. Trace nose. Light to medium bodied with a big tingling effervescence. Bright flavors. Cereal grains in the malt bill and a decent hop punch. Hits the tart and the bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Hazy golden with a big, frothy, white head. Fair duration, though it fizzes a bit. Nice grassy Saaz hop aroma. Slightly spicy with some fine sweet maltiness. A touch of pepper. Low carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and some chewy malts. There is really a fine, spicy and grassy hoppiness. Long lingering bitterness with a slight sugary edge. Nice.
