There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. Crisp Lager has nothing to hide behind - no makeup to cover up any flaws. Raw ingredients and their essence, full and unabated...uninhibited...CRISP.

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 Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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

chinchill (1724) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2014
16 oz can served in a nonic glass. Pours light amber in color with a good head that has decent retention butleaves little lacing. Little in the way of rising carbonation bubbles for style. Poor clarity. Aroma: mixed grains, soft fruits and herbal hops. Flavor: Fruity for style. Feel: light body and medium-low, too low, carbonation. Semi-dry finish. O: a decent pilsner, but compares poorly to the SN/Firestone Walker Beer Camp Torpedo Pilsner that preceded it.

njnut (213) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Poured into flute a 14K gold with a big white head and some lacing. Med body and co2 levels. Aroma was lightly floral, hay and a touch of wheat. Taste was pure malt a bit of spice and a small tartness in the finish with the malts carrying through. Very nice.

Are you guys f#&*%$g kidding me!?!?! This brew is tantamount to purrfection! This pompous whiny-ass, Aroma-blah-blah-blah, head laced suck my ass. WTF?!? Get OVER your selves. Crisp is Lager perfection, DONE Son. A delish brew like this should make you question your lot in life. NO ONE, NOT a Single one of you could EVER brew a beer as good as this! PERIOD. Six Point, hats off guys, keep nail’in it, I’ll keep enjoy’in it. Peace.

blklab2007 (1941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Can poured a golden in color with a coating of off white head. Aroma has grains, mild hops, and malt. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor has plenty of malt, it is a bit crisp, mild hops, and a touch of sweetness.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Can consumed at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon, Friday 18th July 2014 Decent enough lager, a bit sweet maybe and the weaker of the three offerings from Sixpoint available from JDW. I sort of glugged this without really giving it much thought, so not my best rating. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Beerenberger (1384) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
The nose is predominately floral with spicy notes. A hazy light- yellow pour with a handsome, mostly lasting white head and no lacing. The palate is moderately malty, with soft hop bitternes and notes of florals and spice. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a well crafted and enjoyable example of a Pils. Would drink again.
