3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a two and a half finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left a really nice looking intricate speckled lacing coating the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice crisp settling aroma of Germany malts blending super nicely among some light spicy hops.
The taste was basically balanced well between the malts and hops.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability running about it. The carbonation is crisp but not harsh.
Overall, this one lives up to its name as it’s everything one could ask for in a Germany pilsener.

There is no real name for this sort of beer yet but there’s definitely getting to be a good number of beers quite like this, lagers that either pretend to be classic European styles or just plain lagers. They are basically something along the lines of a Czech pilsener but w/ a distinctly American hop character. This one in particular pours a slightly hazed yellow color. It’s head is white and of fine bubbles which remains as about a quarter inch ring for most of the glass.The nose here is bright and lemony with a soft touch of pine in the background. Flavor has a bit of sweet cookie dough malt which helps bring out some tangerine flavor as well. This little bit of sweetness is well match by a firm, resinous bitterness in the finish that seems to cling to the tongue and beg you to take another sip. This is a medium bodied beer I’d say but doesn’t feel heavy on the tongue due to crisp carbonation which makes for a very nice drinking beer indeed. I definitely recommend both lager fans and hop heads give this a try.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the new slim can. Pours a fairly clear light golden color with a thick, rocky off-white head that leaves some nice foamy, dripping lace. Nose involves spicy, earthy noble hops, clean doughy yeast, and some sweet honey-like malt. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter. Lighter body, fairly active, crisp (of course), with a lengthy drying hoppy finish. A well-executed pilsner, very approachable yet lots of good character.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy rich orange with lasting white head. Smell is light pale malt, faint fruit and honey. Taste is a nice fruity, lightly yeasty and malt balance. Slightly fruity bitter finish. Full body and crisp carbonation. Very drinkable. Comes off fruitier than a pilsner, but regardless of style, it’s very good. Pretty happy with most of the sixpoint beers I’ve tried.

Can at Wetherspoons (under the Central Library), Birmingham. I like Lager. I do. But here, I was expecting Lager+. This remained Lager. It did not transmogrify into ’craft lager’, or ’Craft Lager’. It has good fizzy body.

Can. The look is clear, golden in color, and has a white head. The smell is sweet grain, hops, florals, crisp, and ok. The taste is much the same.
