Bottle into a Lager glass. Thanks to Dave N. Pour is a light yellow with a fine head. Aroma is light malt and hop with s hint of co2. Taste is a nice bitter malt, very well balanced. Finish is a clean bitter. Over all a very good Lager.

Geruch hopfig, im Geschmack wenig süß. In Abgang bitter, hängt leider ein bisschen nach. Ansonsten: Norddeutsches pils.

malvrich (88) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass. Best by 09/11/2015. A: A gentle pour yields a small quickly settling head with nice lace patterns and prolific carbonation bubbles. Clear brassy gold color is very nice. S: Light floral hops and sour baguette toast. T: Balanced soft flavors of biscuit and sweet bread quickly followed by bitter hops. Short, dry finish. Very good. A bit of a vegetal note late but not off-putting. M: Light but still full mouthfeel with lots of carbonation though not enough to be out of place for the style. O: I’ve now rated both Summerfest and Nooner. I thought I was sure I preferred Nooner But now who knows. I like them both a lot.

Tayeth (374) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2015
Geruch nicht besonders intensiv, aber schön malzig. Geschmack geht in Richtung Pils, kratzt aber leider im Abgang und auch die Bittere ist etwas unausgewogen.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle: Straw-yellow body with a silky white head. No lacing left behind. Aroma is grainy with some bitter, earthy hops in the background. A touch of lemon zest... Maybe some cereal. Not much going on, really. Flavor is light, too. Pale malt, milled grains, oat, a touch of lemon & orange zest, faint yeast. Even a small touch of clove (?) in the finish. Overall, just kind of vapid & bland. Crisp mouth feel, light bodied, finishes clean.

joejames (316) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear golden, two finger quick white head, some lacing and some retention. Aroma of grass and light citrus. Taste is nicely balanced lightly sweet, light earthy bitter. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of grass, herbs, lemon, mango and hay. A nice refreshing summer Pils.

Pours a pale yellow with lots of bubbles and a thin white head. Aroma is grassy hops and lemon peel and bread. Flavor is grassy hops and bread. Crisp and bubbly. Pretty good.

Draft. Moderately grassy nose with a light pepper character. Moderately bitter with a grassy and almost astringent hop finish. A tad dry. Decent.
