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 Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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

Can in JDW. Sweet malt and lemon aroma and taste. Rounded and full bodied, with a slightly medicinal finish, that has blackberry and honey notes. Tasty.

As the name says, it’s very crisp. Actually the beer is quite nice for being a lager.

BlackHaddock (3767) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
23 Aug 2014 can: Wetherspoons in Shrewsbury. Poured into a ’Duvel’ shaped glass. Looks like a lager/pilsner, light golden with the usual white top. Funnily enough it had a crisp feel to the palate but little taste or aroma, some citrus and hop notes but very little of anything else.

Can - Sweet citrus and pale malt. Clear gold with a rich white head. Sweet and bitter fruit, more like an APA. Quite decent and unusual for a pils.

Lightly clouded, with a decent bit of white head. Touch of sour apple, fresh hay. Lightly bitter, some sourness, quite malty. Effervescent, fairly acidic, light carbonation. Nicely balanced, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
