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Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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

Bright gold appearance with a small white head and little lacing. Faint floral aroma that turned a bit soapy. Unremarkable, inoffensive flavor with a grainy aftertaste. Light bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel leading to a short lived finish.

Lett tåkete pilsnerfarget med høyt skum. Gress og lett frukt i duften. Korn og noe ananas i smaken. Tykk munnfølelse til å være pils.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of malts a bit of citrus scent with a bit of woody scent in between there. Slightly hazy yellow color with small white head that doesn’t last long. That is one awesome tasting pilsener starts off with sweet malt with a bit of cedar in there nice bitterness throughout the whole flavor profile. Light body with really likable carbonation. If your use to drinking crappy pilsener like any thing that is super mass produced then this could be the beer to convert you To craft beer the taste of this is so complex it might be to much for some beer drinkers. Way to change the game for pilsener.

Pours an amber from a can. Crisp beer, but not much going on flavor or aroma-wise.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: May 4, 2016... OCCASION: a record-breaking Cavs three-point night worthy of a good beer... GLASSWARE: Jever pokal... APPEARANCE: healthy three-finger white head that bubbles actively, fed by a vociferous golden body... the head has staying power... lacing is light and wispy as clouds that cascade down the glass... AROMA: bold, arresting Saaz hops bring about an airy, flowery quality with light dough... aromatic, with a hint of citrus PALATE: light to medium-bodied, with a slight buttery, mostly smooth from start to finish... mostly a return at the end, with an abrupt CRISP finish... TASTE: some lemon grass and spice provide an earthiness, while the lightly toasted malts make for a grainy aftertaste... tangerine, orange and pine contribute to a refreshing, sessionable beer with enough flavor to hold the attention... OVERALL: another worthwhile experience from the Sixpoint folks,--a straight-forward attempt at a straight-forward style... nothing disappointing here....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden body with hints of haze, topped by a white, fully lasting head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of citrus, generic fruity notes, some tropical fruits, pale malts and caramel. The rather strong flavour is also more hoppy and fruity than most pilsners, but I find less tropical fruits than in the aroma. Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter, long-lasting finish. Dry and light on the palate with a moderate carbonation. A decent one, but maybe not as crisp as the name implies.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Signature Sixpoint can poured to a pilsner glass. Cloudy, dull golden color with a near infinite foam top head and lace. Spiraling carb. Very soft plastic hop aroma. Definitely crisp, I’ll give it that. An overall lack in real flavor structure, but depending on how hot it is outside would likely determine if this beer is fantastic or not. For me, there is not enough flavor here for it to be a bad beer. It’s light. Crisp. Watery. Is what it is.
