3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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.

On tap at Community Tap in Greenville. Great beer for the style- exactly what a pils should be. Clean and crisp. Went down pretty quickly after biking around greenville in 90 degree heat. Not complex or overdone. Appropriate grass/ herb and biscuit levels. Just about right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden and orange body with minimal head. Aroma of honey, apricot, bread. As with most of the sixpoint beers, this is very drinkable but lacks some complexity. I think I prefer this over the IPA I had from the mixer pack. Not top notch, but solid overall in the pilsner category.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Darby’s, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light bready malts and a touch of grassiness. Flavour is not very pilsner-like, with dry, almost cardboardy malts, a little grass and very lint bitterness. Makes me question the age of this. Not too good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Darby’s Gastown, Vancouver; 12oz
Hazy dark blond color. The aroma is mild, some grass, some crisp malts, I’m afraid there’s a diacetyl shade too. Smooth mouthfeel, quite some residual sweetness for the style, the malt flavor is quite good, crusty bread, the bitterness level is correct, the hops are quite grassy, and the hint of butter is not actually disturbing. I sense a light sourness in the final, but it’s just a wild idea.
