Kind of a misguided approach to a hoppier pilsner. Really cold, it’d drink fine if you want a slightly bitter pilsner. But then, I’m just not a huge fan of these types of beers. It pales in comparison to Saranac’s Pale Ale and White IPA, both of which are quite pleasant.

Medium bodied head, mild lacing. Color is a pale golden honey-like hue, really nice. Aroma is honey and bready sweetness, with light floral notes. Taste is sweet, with some spices, mild hops. It’s light and refreshing. Really nice to drink in summer or in warmer weather. Overall, quite nice. I’d drink it again.

Aroma is on the sweeter side. Taste is lighter, but at the same time has a hint of hops. Overall a solid pilsener.

ben4321 (4649) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow, 5/11/14

Aroma: The nose is light and malty, some bread, grains, and some grassy hop notes
Appearance: Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head that leaves some spotty lace
Flavor: More hoppy flavor, with some bready/grainy sweetness, and a spicy, grass bitterness
Palate: The feel is light and clean, crisp and easy drinking, with an average-to-lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a decent looking and tasting beer. It drinks pretty nicely, and works well. Not a ton unique going on here, but it has that crisp/clean feel you would hope for from this style. Would drink this again.

Bottle. Pours a tan color with a huge head. Taste comes off slightly hoppy but more of a pilsner lager. Very good session ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkBarnes (390) - Waterville, New York, USA - APR 28, 2014
Apr. 28, 2014; 12 oz. can poured into a tumbler. Appearance is pure Pils in terms of color, bubbles & head. Zesty, lemony scent. Sturdy & balanced, with good mouthfeel and pleasant bitterness - but light & refreshing enough to be a warmer-weather beer.

Now available in cans! I was super excited to see that this was brought back this year. Something changed between last years offering in bottles and this year’s cans. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Pours as you would expect from a pilsner, light straw minimal head. Saranac is getting better...this is one of the better brews being offered. The hops give a slightly spicy spin on this one.

Golden straw, typical color.. fizzy small head. Simple, although positive aroma of hops and malt. Taste is simple, yet balanced.
