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Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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

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.
[35.5 cl can, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Nose is citrus, straw, pilsener malts and hints of red berries and butterscotch. Taste is grass, pilsener malts, bitter herbs, straw and hints of bread dough and mild pine. Light body, high carbonation. Pretty crisp, as announced, and a hop-forward American-oriented pilsener. Perhaps a bit too heavy on the bittering hops for my taste, but otherwise a pretty decent, thirst-quenching session beer.
