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 Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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.
