There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. Crisp Lager has nothing to hide behind - no makeup to cover up any flaws. Raw ingredients and their essence, full and unabated...uninhibited...CRISP.

473 ml can. Best before NOV 2011. Pours into my giant pilsener/stange glass a pale gold, perhaps a shade paler than a pils should be with a gorgeous head that leaves actually rather industrial-looking lacing. Judging by the smell they totally misused the German hops. IT smells like oranges which is a common mistake American lager brewers make, which is hilaroius why they boast how "unmasked" this is. Yeah, it is unmasked, and you don’t know how to brew a proper pils. It leans more towards a Czech pils in the aroma though. The flavor is nothing like a pilsener, it is more like a pale ale. It is orangey with a piercing orange blossom extract flavor. The finish is slightly bitter with some grassiness. Surprisingly there is not much diacetyl. But this is waaaay to sweet for a pilsener. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and watery, the palate is sweet and muttled, pilseners are supposed to be, ironically, and i mean really ironically like the name of this beer, crisp. Either they just aren’t accomplished brewers or were smokin some serious crack when making this recipe.

cheap (3806) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2011
This is an insult to refreshing cheap pale lagers. This is not a plae lager, its a rude ale, yesserrie. Looks nice, some gunk from the bottom of the can. Smell is almost tummy turnin sickly sweet. Big rude malty liquor thing going on here. Cheaper and strong, much more than the 5% listed here. Yep, malt likker first taste, and boy that smell is weird and sweet fer sure. WEW almost cloying but no gag reflex yet. So far the two beers I tasted from this brewery have the same major background, weirdly sweet, irritatingly sweet but not like fruity lambic or blushing monk sweet, no way.

Straight pour from 16oz can to full-size tulip / imperial pint, best by date of October 12, 2011 printed on underside of the can (BEST BEFORE 12OCT11) Appearance (4/5): Gorgeous orange-gold color, slightly hazy, with a solid three fingers of bone-white head, leaving some thick lacing on the side. Smell (7/10): Some moderately sweet pale malts up front, with mild, grassy hops behind it. To be fair, this can is a bit old, so the hops have worn off a bit, but I actually like it in the place it’s at now—hop presence mild to moderate. Taste (8/10): Bitter grassy hops first, followed by a light, sweet malt base. Light as day, nothing dark or thick about it whatsoever. Malt profile is light and crisp, and the hops actually become a bit more pronounced as you go. Very tasty, nice and crisp (zing). Mouthfeel (4/5): Smooth, light and dry. Quenching, the dry finish begs for another sip. Overall (16/20): This is good. Real nice and solid, this is a good pilsner that’s exactly what I want a pilsner to be. That said, it’s not exactly rocketing into my top 10, but if I’m looking for a pilsner you can bet I’ll be coming back to this one. Good job, Sixpoint!

pushkinwow (1844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
500ml can - thanks Mike (spinrsx). Pale golden yellow with voluminous white head that leaves lacing down the pint glass. Some stale caramel and grains, malts, not much else. Sweet, surprisingly low carbonation on the palate considering the pour, bit of nice dryness and hops at the end. Ok.

Bif (1307) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 8, 2011
16oz can- Pours a nice golden color, quite clear with a decent head and some lacing. Mild aroma, Herbal with some fresh grain. Has an initial crispness with a subtle bitterness thoughout and a touch of malt sweetness. Has a dry finish. Fairly moderate body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Did I mention Crisp? Excellent balance. Maintains that crisp feel though to the end. Excellent beer, an easy drinker. Hell of a lot more than I ever expected from a can of beer. I guess I’ll check to see what else Sixpoint has to offer.

Bottle from coldbrewky, many thanks. Golden color with nice huge white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of hops, red fruits, grain. Taste, surprisingly fruity, with grapefruit, hints of honey and pines, bitter hops, honey, some spices. Nice long bitter finish. Good, refreshing beer.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 6, 2011
16oz can. Pours a glowing, clear light gold with a healthy, white head. Spotty lace. Nose is a little buttery with sugary dried pineapple. Taste is lightly metallic and suddy with sugar presence and melon fruitiness. Very fruity rather than doughy, grassy bitter. Palate is a just a little too thick to be sessionable for me- honey and sugar. Technically, fruitiness in lager is a flaw; but I can see why this may appeal so some people as a cross-over beer of sorts from Bud Light to something like Victory Summer Love.

Tap at Pacific Standard in NYC. Pours a clear, deeper yellow with a fizzy, temporary white head. No retention and lace. Aroma is pretty poor: fusel, adjunct reminiscent with slight homebrew brewing flaws: old apples, esters, autolyzed yeast off character. Taste is metallic, soapy hoppy, suddy, maybe Saaz hoppy. Non offensive. Body has some booziness and maraschino cherries. But the incredibly dry and suddy mouthfeel is distracting.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Mikasa pilsener glass. Picked the can up at Connecticut Avenue Liquors in DC. Pours a very clear moderate golden color with a huge white head and tons of sticky lacing as it goes down. Thin cap throughout. The nose brings some lightly-sweet grain and bread notes plus some floral and herbal hops. The flavor is a bit hoppy with mild sweetness. Good balance between grain and hops. Light body and fairly crisp, though a bit too sweet in the finish. Pretty good, though not quite as good as Sixpoint’s other brews.

Nate (3557) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2011
On tap at Bocktown. Beany hop nose with some cooked vegetable. Light oxidation or dirty tap lines, not sure. Pale golden clear with thin white lacing head. Medium light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts fairly sweet with pilsner malt, a bit of some corn or vegetable, mild oxidation, but with decent beany hop notes. Smooth light sweet finish, mild bitterness, and decent hop flavor.
