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 Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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

ClarkVV (5857) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Draught and cans over the years, since debut, most recently at the Brooklyn Bowl on 10/7/16.
Clear, pale-golden/flaxen colored body is topped by a fairly dense, white head showing good retention.
Crackers, biscuits, citric hops and lots of spicy, herbal character in the nose with a big peppery finish and light cereal hints as well. Seemingly very nice attenuation, as the nose, other than showing some American hop notes (very light pine) and light cereal notes, shows very strong grainy malts, as well. No alcohol or flaws.
Dry, yet with a good suppleness from the malts, the beer contains no shortage of hops, with herbs, lemon, pepper and even pine and light grapefruit. Bitterness builds up a bit much, perhaps and the light pine seems somewhat out-of-place. No alcohol or flaws, though I’ve had more than one can, over the years, which was full of diacetyl. Been a while, though, so I hope they’ve got that behind them. Anyways, a good pilsner available in lots of places you wouldn’t get craft beer otherwise. Even if there’s a bit more resin in most Six Point beers than I’d like, it’s still quite drinkable and thankfully on the dry side.
