Pours a golden with a thick frothy white rocky head. Aroma smells of cooking spices, oregeno, basil and a little tomato sauce oddly enough. Flavor is malty with cereal grains predominant in the flavor. A little beet of crispix with some puffins mixed in. Mild lagering hops present an earthy and citrus flavor with a slight bitterness, just enough to balance the malt backbone. Alcohol is well masked.

A deep golden brew with decent carbonation. Body is surprisingly on the heavy side, as is the alcohol. Flavor is rather complex for a lager with some spice and citrus and fruit notes. This one hits you with a left hook punch on the backside. Interesting brew.

draft at bar great harry, brooklyn- no wonder i was a bit more buzzed than usual- pilsner at 7 percent- thought it was quite tasty though- very nice hop profile, and better than average body- enjoyable.

It seems that I have been including YMBM (you must be mad) in many of my notes lately. Several of which have included Pretty things brews. 7% for a lawnmower beer...glad I mowed mine yesterday. Gentle hay and straw up front in this seemingly light bodied brew. Long hop toned finish. Yeasty/peppery body. but pour remained clear and sweaty. thick tight tan head. Nicer as it warmed

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a mostly clear, sparkling yellow with a medium, fizzy white head. Quite sweet aroma with lightly roasted malts, bread and crackers, light grass and florals. Flavor is very sweet, with strong malt and bread notes and mild hops. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with a nice, crisp bite. The overall impression is sweet but I didnít find it overly so. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 Dear Pretty Things,

If youíre going to charge someone $8 for a bomber of any sort of pilsner-style lager, please make it worth their while. I bought this beer in full-support of the artisan efforts of Dann Paquette, expecting a nuanced and unique twist on a classic style, in the likes of Jack Díor or Baby Tree. Instead, I got what appeared to be a slightly boozy, hoppier than average, slightly oxidized strong pilsner. I like pilsner, especially for the thrist-quenching lawnmower-beer properties you advertise on the label. However, when I get 7% of lager sugars, the last thing that comes to mind is mowing the lawn on a hot day. Instead I think of spending time at a cold, wet German bus stop or taking a nap in the winter. Kind of insulting for $8, donít you think?

Respectfully,
Chucky D

Postscript: To be fair, Wakefield Liquors is apparently charging well above suggested retail here.

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours transparent golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of nuts and oats with a slight hoppiness. If you could rate this beer for being a lager, itíd get a much higher score. Flavor of oats/bread with some hops and the typical lager finish. An incredible lager, but still a little light on texture for my tastes.

A good premium lager on tap. Gave me a golden color with a 2 finger head. The aroma was a bit citrus but also got that slight skunk funk which is just kind of nice in the right kind of beer. Got more cloying in the taste but the bitterness was the main feature here. Enjoyed to the last drop.

Bottle from Caponeís and CAH. Pours chill hazy gold with 2f white head. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrud, some fruit. Tastes very malty and citric, bready, somewhat cloying, with hops, and a floral metallic slight tartness late. Not bad.

22 oz bottle, batch 2. Clear pale amber with a brief white head leaving a film. Nose is grass and dough with a hints of toffee; subtle but nice. Medium light with crisp carb that softens. Taste is sourdough, parsley and lime peel. With the heat recently iíve actually been craving a premium lager. This really hit the spot. Wish you could get sixers of this for under $10.
