Pounder can from Frank Smith’s. Pours canary...really deep golden with 1-finger white head and spare lace. Nose is crisp Saazy hops, pale malt, maibocky fruit. Tastes pale malty, semi-sweet, with notes of apricot, honey, pale malt, and a nice dose of finishing Saaz hops. This is a standout pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can courtesy mora2000. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a ring of bubbles on the head. Aroma is kind of salty, strange grains, cheese perhaps? Briny I would add. Flavor is dry grains, bitter notes, faint flavor of a dry cheese again with a dry finish. Watery on the end.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours clear yellow with a slight orange tint, a lasting white head an some minuscule lacing. faint aroma of dampness (how i perceive all pale lagers it would seem) and citrus; lemons and grapefruit specifically. body is rather full for a lager. this is a lush, refreshing beer. taste has a tropical fruit character with notes of hops in good balance. finish is warm, refreshing and pleasantly bitter sweet. This is by far the best pale lager I have ever had.

On tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn NY on 27th July 2011. Clear gold with virtually no head and no lacing. Berry fruit aroma. Richly fruity and spicy in-mouth, notes of fruitcake, cheese, alcohol. Fruity finish with a developing bitter note in the aftertaste. Thick, full-mouth engaging texture, rich mouthfeel. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
16 ounce can, best by Sept 29,2011. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a fairly dense 2 finger white head with great retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Some decent lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of honey, bread, lemon, grass, citrus, and a bit of spiciness. Very nice and inviting aromas. Taste of big breadiness, with lemon, grass, and citrus. Finishes with a grassy and spicy hop bitterness that is decently strong and lingers for a bit with lemon and citrus sweetness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body. Nice crisp and refreshing finish, as expected. Extremely drinkable and delicious stuff with no alcohol in the taste or finish. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Outstanding stuff, and a perfect summer beverage I would drink on a hot day.

lively carbonation the brew is tangy and has a bit of chalk taste and body. formidable soap and stainless steel taste that is clean and lingers only momentarily. springwater tasting and frothy. stronger but similar to Ballantine Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at DBGB, NYC. Interestingly, this was advertised as "Sixpoint Craft Lager," part of their generic line, rather than what it specifically is. Bright pale gold pour, a vigorous head, and a saaz-ed up nose tell the tale though. Tons of carbonation, but the lively mouthfeel wasn’t too overdone thankfully. A hint of bright lemon and sweet toasted grains here and there, but overall a well rendered, dry and flavorful pilsener.
