Not one of my favorites. Actually seemed to have a bit of a metallic finish.

Ok it's a little funky, my guess is it's an older bottle. Will have to try it again sometime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy amber color with a thick white head. Some malty flavor with a hoppy, bitter finish. Pretty decent beer.

hockeybeerguy (1873) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing graced the glass nicely. The smell had a nice assortment of Germany pilsner malts and had a nice light bitter crisp hops to complement the aroma. The taste was mainly sweet and crisp. The palate sat fairly light and sessionable. There was a good crisp carbonation about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Pilsener.

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours clear light copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet malt, creamy caramel, toffee, buttery. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky, buttery grains with malty sweetness.

There were no suprises with this beer. The experience was just as the description said. It was very smooth. No flavors, even the hops stood out, except maybe a nice hint of the carmel that was very pleasurable, without making this beer taste sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
