COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Foam is a German-style Pilsner, light bodied and easy drinking, yet loaded with flavor. Brewed with a mix of European and American malts, balanced by a spicy, and herbal hop kick. Brewed specifically for Phish festivals, Foam is a crisp and refreshing traditional pale gold lager beer. In the words of Phish— “I’m looking through, And it all would be, So crystal clear, If it wasn’t for the foam.” Great music, great beer, and good times.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
16 ounce pint - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served a perfectly clear, lemon-hued body housing steady streams of effervescence underneath a fine, snow white head.

Smell: Pils malt yielding accents of dough, gently toasted grains while the hops bring notes of spice, peppery herbs, and mild citrus.

Taste: Grainy pilsner maltiness, lightly doughy, grainy, with just enough sweetness. Spicy, herbal, minutely citrusy hops with sufficient bitterness to perfectly balance things out. Finishes smooth yet crisp.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. A notch above medium carbonation for a pleasing crispness.

Overall: Very refreshing, very enjoyable. I couldn’t care less about Phish if I tried, but this was a nice pils, SN.

To be fair, I drank this after a dry stout, so it’s kind if hard to rate. Pretty refreshing, a golf course in the middle of summer would be a perfect venue.

Surprised to see this up on the board at Taco Mac. Awesome find. Crystal clear pour with a frothy, no wait foamy, white head. Aroma was crisp malt, grainy, bread, noble hops. Flavors were very straight forward and to the point. Crisp and light all around. Light bitter finish. Incredibly drinkable. Enjoyed this one very much. Damn near perfect for an outdoor fest.

Pours typical pilsner gold with small white head that disappears. Smells of grain and corn. Taste is of adjunct lager with a tad of citrus and noble pils. Palate is smooth and refreshing. Overall, not a bad beer for summertime, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2012
32oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours almost clear yellow with a one finger white head that recedes to a light cap and doesn’t leave much lacing behind.

Aroma is grassy, noble hops, a hint floral, some bready/cracker malt. Good strength.

Flavor is grassy, noble hops, decent bit of light malt sweetness, decent bit of bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light bodied, a touch sticky, good carbonation.

Very nice Pilsner, Crisp, super easy drinking. Hoppy, but still balanced.

On tap in a plastic cup. Pours amber with a lacy head. Aroma of pale and bread malts with citrusy hops and a little spice. Flavor the same, a little light on the hops. Average texture. An alright beer.

On draft at Bader Field. Poured hazy yellow with soapy head. Flavor of sweet corn malts, slightly grassy. Floral, mildly bitter finish. Kind of an astringent finish. Thin. Was hoping for more.
