3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mini growler from Half-Time. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick white head. Light citrus hops, grain and lager yeast. Medium bodied, nice sweetness. Finishes with a gentle bitterness. Nice easy drinking pils, but I’m still not a fan of lager smell on the front end.

12 oz can... aroma is not so good.... nice white head.... clear pale color.... very light on the palate... easy to drink... not much going on flavor wise ... again a little overpriced for the product... as mentioned in previous rating grassy flavor

Transparent gold, white head that is gone quickly leaving moderate lacing. Honey, grass, and bread for a flavor. Grassy flavor, some hop, more grain. Light body, moderate carbonation, nice long finish with some bitterness. Pretty standard fare here, but refreshing and enjoyable.

Can from papago. Pours golden in color with a frothy white head. Smells of yeast and buttered popcorn. Tastes the same with a crisp, almost crab apple, taste. Not bad - as far as pilsners go.

Amazing head here!! Don’t drink from the can, since this one pours transparent pale golden color with rocky, foamy, meringue-like head. Aromas are fresh with a grain malty component and light herbal hops. On the palate it is light bodied, lightly sweet/malty, and a good herbal crispness from the hops. Easy drinking.

(12oz can, courtesy of Bman1113vr) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of cereal, butter, grain, and huskiness. Flavor of corn, cereal, light lemon, and grassy hops.

Very, very drinkable little pils. Might just give me beloved St Arnold Summer Pils a run for it’s money this summer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can sampled at WBF in Raleigh. Looking forward to drinking more of these this summer, assuming we can get distro down here. Looks like a pils. I liked this beer quite a lot. Aroma was mild grassy/floral hops and some sweetness. Aroma was not as good as the taste. Better hop presence there. Hope to drink this on a pontoon boat or at the beat as much as possible this summer. As always, extra point for being in a can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned. The body was dark gold with a bright white head on top. The aroma was sweet with citrus and lemon pudding. The taste was bitter with some lemon peels and a black pepper finish. Clean and smooth. This is better than pale lagers, but far from a great pils.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Sam’s, Durham. Nice unassuming pils, less in the hop-forward style of the sorely missed Tuppers and more in the balanced style of Victory Prima. Good, refreshing, and lightly flavorful.
