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.

GregClow (2816) - Toronto, Ontario, - NOV 4, 2012
Can at Momofuku in Toronto. A surprise to find this on the menu at a Toronto restaurant, as Sixpoint has never had any beer available up there previously - brought in as a private order, I guess. Pours a beautiful clear orange-gold with a snow white head that a lot of lacing. Aroma is excellent - sweet and bready malt, floral hops, a suggestion of lemon balm, all in balance. Crisp and clean body, just as the name suggests. Flavour is lovely, with floral, grassy & all-around snappy hops coming to the forefront without being too aggressively better. Maybe my surprise at finding it in an unexpected place has skewed my rating up by a couple of points, but it’s still one of the best lagers I’ve had in ages.

kwik-lime (1169) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Can from JDWs, just known as ’The Crisp’. Which is an apt description, nice balance and indeed a crisp finish with a malty body rounded off by decent bitter hops in the finish. Just a touch of sweetness - really enjoyable pils.

wimpyjoe (2967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Can @ White Hart, Todmorden, UK, as ’The Crisp’. Pale yellow with a smooth head. Has very light malts but as the name suggest more crisp than any other defining feature.

edsspoon (144) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Hazy golden with a fizzy white head. Fairly good retention and some lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral with some hops. Taste is of grapefruit and lemon, with grassy hops and bitterness. Somewhat floral with some maltiness and pine. Long bitter finish. Medium to heavy carbonation and light body.

Golden in colour with a whiye head. Lacing is very good with steady carbonation. Some slight bitterness followed by grassy and resin flavours. There is a very faint fruity taste.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Fra fad, ABC Restaurant, New York. Næsten klar, gylden, ok hvid hat. Græs, hø og citrus i næsen. Ren og frisk og med en delikat antydning af røg. Lever op til sit navn.

JonMoore (1807) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Can at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 9 March 2014. Poured a clear, golden with dense, white head and good lacing. Sweet, malty aroma with notes of dried fruit and dough. Initial flavours of lager malt, straw and sultanas. Finish was mango, hay and dry grains.

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2014
355ml Can from Crystal Palace (Wetherspoons), Glasgow (£2.49):
Light pilsener malts & some grassy hops with a crisp & clean aroma that has some bittersweet notes coming through & faint citrus with a few earthy notes as well. It was a fairly light smelling beer & pretty much as I was expecting for the style.
Clear, light golden colour with a lot of visible carbonation showing through plenty of bubbles rising to the surface. Has a half cm, foamy white head that hold pretty well with some lacing too.
Light & clean pilsener taste with some earthy bitterness coming through & a few malts as well. There was a light citrus & lemon taste with some grassy hops on top of that.
Smooth & clean on the palate with a naturally crisp finish as the name hinted at. The beer was a good thirst quencher with carbonation levels about medium with a medium body & a slightly bittersweet finish.

A decent pilsener & not a bad offering from Sixpoint, although it wasn’t in the same league as their Bengali Tiger. Nice & crisp, living up to the name at least but there are better pilseners out there.

Bue à la pression. Couleur jaune, trouble. Une légère amertume couronne le tout.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Can, The Bishop Vesey (sic- they could have spelled my name right), Sutton Coldfield (well, actually, Boldmere), 04/04/14. After a dry 2 hours seeking festival beers I was reduced to sinking a can of this in the garden of The Vesey. Spiralling lager gold propping firm white head. Soapy herb and orange squash nose. Same taste with perfumed rubber and peel; coriander, pale toast. Wheat not lager. Not bad. Lemon barley squash. Long way to come for a can of rubbery wheat.
