Nice crisp and clear yellow beer that is refreshing. Nice flavor with just the right amount of hops to spice up this pilsener. A good beer from Sam. Yay.

Poured with a nice head and was a golden yellow in color. It smelled crisp and tasted the same way, crisp and refreshing. I did however have a problem with the aftertaste. It was missing that little "zing" in the finish which is the trademark of a good pilsener. Still a good summer beer!

Good ’hot day beer’. Nice hops but not overpowering.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 16, 2002
Bright yellow color,foamy head. Faint hop aroma, dry finish. Not to bad.

Nice hoppy, bitterness. Less nice, skunky aftertaste.

The kinder, gentler Sam - gesturing at the majors God knows why. He still manages to sneak some taste in here, though, mainly a whiff of florality.

Unique interpretation of pilsner. Citrusiness is almost ale-like (sour?). Good cold on hotter days, but not my first choice.

Mine had gone a bit skunky, I’m afraid, but I’ll try to ignore that and rate strictly on merit (or lack thereof. ha ha). The saaz hops are present, though subtler here, true to the American style. I didn’t find this as fizzy as others did. Lacks aroma.

A nice pilsener. Not nearly as good as Falstaff, mind you, but a wholly satisfying beer. I felt it had a crisp, clean taste, with a mild, almost tangy aftertaste. Lacks a little in the aroma department and was just a little too fizzy to rate any higher. Good beer, though!
