COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Cracked it with him in the movie theater at Beer Wars. Aroma is of heavy Pils and some light noble hop aroma. Taste is very reminiscent of light lagers, but bold, intense, and infinitely more satisfying. However, at the end of the day there is not much complexity here. It is a pretty good Pis, but.....well, meh. Ten Fidy/Gordon/Dales/Old Chub are better.

jgb9348 (4706) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2009
Clear golden coloured body with a soapy white head that dissipates very fast. Aroma of fresh malt, a very light hop, some cardboard and a bit more of lemons -not too nice, but at least fresh. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong assertive malt and sugary sweetness up front fading to a mellow acidic floral citrus taste - with some light hops, I suppose. Aftertaste mild and malty, but showing some metallic and floral tastes as well. Overall, not a great beer - their other offerings are much better - but just because it’s in a can, it’s probably worth a sample. I even saved a bit in the can (instead of a glass) just to drink out of the can itself! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased at City Beer in San Francisco, California on 21-March-2009, sampled on 16-April-2009, when the Red Wings won game 1 of the 2009 NHL playoffs!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a straw yellow color with a huge yellow-white head. The aroma was grassy, floral and a bit tart. The flavor was sour, tangy, grassy and had light crisp floral hops. The finish was short and a bit corny. Eh.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2011 Clear pour. Great head. Sweet pilsner aroma. Incredible taste. Best pilsner I’ve had in awhile. 3.6
RE-RATE 3/9/11 Can from Central Market. This beer pours a clear golden color with a very large head response. I even had a larger glass and the head still came billowing over the edge. Tall white head.

The aroma is of soft hops and pilsener malts. Grainy smell with something that is just a bit funky. Not sure but there is something like a soured grain note in this as well.

Slick mouthfeel with bitter grains. It has a dry finish with a very bready/grainy flavor. Not much by way of sweetness just straight up grains. Reminds me of the steeping portion of a homebrew where you drop the grains in hot water and let them sit for awhile. This is kind of watery too. Meh so-so I suppose. Makes for good kickball beer though.

Draft at the brewery. Golden yellow pilsner body. Taste-no off flavors, good pilsner. Whaddya want from me? It’s a freaking pilsner.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2009
Clean yellow, fluffy white head. Sweet malt aroma. Dunno. Sweet, hint of chardonnay oak with each sip, fades to nearly nothing more than a crisp clean cold steel finish.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2009
s’allright. was hoping for a bit less cornaciousness and more sharp hop bite. Easy lawn mower beer I guess and not so bad, but I would much prefer the local Live Oak Pilz be put in a can.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Draft. Pours deep gold with clingy white head. Nose is hopcitrus, pale malt, with a flavor that is malty at first, then gives you the hopcitrus and some fruity notes. A bit of a disappointment, but even these guys are mortal.

Yellow fizzy with a white head. Grassy grass aroma. Some sweetness in the beginning before a bit of floral bitterness comes up. I’m not really mad at this one but I feel it could be better.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2009
Can at Flying Saucer, Houston. Pours an average corn yellow with an aroma of faint butterscotch-soaked corn. Flavor is a full-bodied malted grain with faint corn and a subtle hop finish. Average mouthfeel. Refreshing; this could very well be my new session beer.
