COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

HonkeyBra (3384) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
16 oz. can. Bright, beautiful golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of brite green leafy hops, some pilsner malt, mint and herbs. Flavor is crisp and leafy, strong leafy and grassy flavor hops complimented by nice doughy malts. Easy to drink, impressive lager. One of the rare types of lagers that appeals to IPA drinkers. Maybe not impressive via hype but certainly a nice beer.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
16 oz can. Pours a light golden with a white head. Aroma is biscuit and cookie sweet malts, notes of honey and crisp herbal hoppiness. Flavor has many of the same notes, starting sweet herbal and honey with some graham cracker and biscuit. Quickly picking up a sharp earthy and herbal hoppiness from the noble hops. Clean and slightly dry finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Good beer

This would be better bottled and labeled as a pale ale. Way too hoppy to be a pilsner.

Thanks to djrn for sending this beer in a box full of goodies from Sixpoint. The beer pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of grass and bready pilsner malt, as expected. The flavor is very clean and crisp. I get a lot of malt, with some grass and a lot amount of bitterness. Easy to drink and quite refreshing. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 Fresh 16 oz. can - Pours a deep golden with some minimal white head which quickly disappears. Some lacing when swirled. Aroma is light malt, and a big nose of grassy/earthy hops. Taste is slightly sweet malt upfront, then huge hop punch in the back-end. Although it’s only 42 IBUS, with only a little and light pale malt to hide behind - the bitterness comes through huge. While I would definitely say this is "not to style" or an "Americanized" verison of the style - at the end of the day it is still an awesome, easy-going, hoppy lager. If you are into German or Czech Pils and are looking for a really nicely priced session with a hop punch this is highly recommended. Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June. I’m really convinced that is one of if not the best pale lagers on the market. Dry, bready, semi-honeyish malts upfront - even being this old (although clearly fading/faded) this brew is still grassy, green, bitter, herby with a clean dry finish. The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less! This beer deserves more respect.

DrSilverworm (6420) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2012
On tap. Big, thick and foamy khaki head. Perfectly clear amber color. Good lace. Darker than I expected for a pilsner... Is that typical for Bohemian style? Light carbonation, creamy texture. Nice, hoppy, toasty finish. Some spicy taste.. Very enjoyable pils, will need to try the canned version some time

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Whole Foods, P St, DC 4-pack ($10): Pours a golden colour with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is grassy hops and nice bready malts. Taste is delightfully crisp (surpirse). Nice and hoppy. Refreshing. Tastes exactly how a pilsener is supposed to taste. Not sweet like some pilseners and not really hoppy like something like Prima Pils (which I think is a very good beer). All in all, well done, and it is good to see breweries put effort into their lagers.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Rep indicated to me this is a German Pils,not Bohemian. The big hop aroma would indicate this is an American style Pilsner made with German ingredients. The dry hopping makes a big difference in the aroma, champagne like bubbles makes it look very lively and refreshing,taste is solid biscuty maltiness with a smidge of wheat like tang,noticeable bitter back bite,lingers a good 15 seconds after swallow for a delightful tongue sucking experience. Not a sipping beer at all,light ,clean flavorful thirst quencher.

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pours a clear light golden color with a size-able white fluffy head that dissipates fairly quickly... Great aromas for a pilsner; wheat and straw. Great rising bubbles carry the flavors very nicely; grassy, lemon peel, clean and a slightly bitter start that smooths out and lingers into a very clean citrus sourdough flavor. Great summer session beer.

16oz can from Joe. Rating #118. Medium golden pour with a white head. Crisp grainy aroma with a hint of light fruit. Decent flavor, mild bitterness, more crisp grain, pretty decent with a nice clean finish and aftertaste. (2226)
