Can. Hilarious name. Deep yellow pour with a fairly large white head that settles down quickly. Grainy, spicy Saaz aroma. Taste is a little overcarbonated but full of earthy hops, white pepper. Dry finish. A nice surprise.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: One of the best beer names ever. Not a big fan of the sty, but this was one of the best pilseners I’ve ever had.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a light to medium, clear yellow with an average to large, sudsy, off-white head that left just a hint of lacing. The aroma was moderate grain, light grassy and spicy hops. The initial flavor was sweet and sour; while the finish was bitter and sour with an average duration. There was grainy malt and grassy hops. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy then dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

This has one of the hoppiest aromas you’ll ever find for a pils and is quite dark as well. Tastes more like a pale ale almost, but is certainly a very tasty brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark Urine pour, slight offwhite head. aroma is mild grassy hops and some grainy malt. Flavor is some light honey dew, slight cardboard breadiness. Finish is sweet grassy stickiness. flavorful and bold, with a suprisingly robust mouthfeel. Not a classic pils taste, but I really really like it

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of pils malt--wheat and some cardboard, lots of bready, grainy malt, with a touch of floral hops. Flavor is sweet initially with jasmine and floral notes, some melon and light fruits, and a bready finish. Very nice, very drinkable. A winner for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a super-solid little pilsner. I’ve been drinking a lot of big beers lately and this guy actually stands up to them in its own way. Poured a pleasant yellow-gold with a subtle, fleeting white head. Aroma of mild hops and grain. A slightly sweet taste with notes of bread and a mild bite. Robust yet quite refreshing.

I had this side by side with Maui Bikini Blonde Lager. This one pours slightly darker yellow, fizzy white head. Biscuits, grain, some floral hops. Easy drink beer. Drier, more bread and hops then the Maui canned lager.

Can. Poured clear gold with a white head. Little lace. Aroma is grainy, lightly hopped. Taste is sweet malt, grain, some hops in the finish. Mouth is medium to light and is very drinkable. Overall, a decent beer, that’s not too big and not all that impressive.
