3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I like this more than other pislners. Little aroma, fine carbonation, and as the brewer suggested, the taste is pleasantly spicy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A steady pour from the can to my Lost Abbey Teku glass produces a one-finger thick, pale, just off-white colored head that disappears pretty quickly. The beer is a bright gold color that shows a pale gold color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of floral hops backed by a hint of Meyer lemon zest and some honey like malt as well as a touch of cracker like malt character. The aroma has a sweetness (aka sweet grain notes) to it rather than a more herbal hop character, though it certainly is a good step above a mass produced lager in character.
The beer starts out with a light hop bitterness and it picks up a touch of herbal character as it rolls across the palate. There is a significant, sweet grain character to the middle and finish that sort of seem to be crying out for some crisp, balancing, hop bitterness to add some bite. A touch of lemon zest as well as some floral hops each help to accentuate a honey like note from the sweet, pale maltiness. This is nice and light, and eminently quaffable, but without seeing overly light; you can certainly feel a touch of body to this and even a light viscous quality as it flows across the tongue.
Definitely a beer that would hit the spot on a hot summers day; this is likely best served at or below 40°F, as I am sure this would help this seem a lot more crisp (I have served this at 50°F, which brings out more of the flavors, but makes it taste sweeter than it otherwise would. Not bad though, and I am happily finishing my can of this beer.

Courtesy of hellbilly. Can pours clear pale gold with white head. The aroma offers up floral hops, corn kernels, spicy hops and earthy hops. The taste is similar with floral hops and spicy hops as well as grainy malts and sugar sweet malts. Hmm. Good summer brew here.

12 oz. can from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is grain and herbal hops. Light to medium body. A nice beer. It’s also nice to have another canned beer to take camping.

Sampled from a can. Pale dry grass color and aroma. I had to really get my nose close to detect much of the aroma. What’s there speaks of European hops and sweet light malts. Flavor is an excellent balance of thirst-quenching bitterness and bready sweetness. Nice carbonation. Long sweet finish. This is a good pilsner and easy to drink.

Very refreshing and well-made pils. Slight hop nose and crisp aftertaste. Easy drinking with some taste.
