pured into tall tulip. pours a clear bubbly gold with full frothy white head. clear, crisp not too much going on in the aroma. smooth front to bitter finish. light on the taste with a slight hop presence. not too much taste going on, complexity lacks, and a little too bitter on the finish. may be good with some food.

Can from JB175. Thanks!
Pours an average hue of yellow gold with a clinging white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is a mixture of artificial sweetener and honey, with a touch or rose in the background. Nice straw and honey flavors interwine and finish with a soured hops infusion. Slight bit of potato in there in the end. Nice mouthfeel; lively and tingly along the palate. Not a fan of this style, usually, but this is one I would have again. Good lawnmower/session beer.

Can 355 ml
Appearance :Crystal clear gold with large white true to style top. Fine lace created .4+
Nose :Pale sweet malt very well composed with central European hop profile. Refreshing, aromatic mineral-meadow grass accents. Classic pilsner nose
Flavour/Palate: Smooth, clean medium bodied with solid dose of Sazz hops . Malt bas following. Stylistically bend on Czech Pils but slightly drier German accents are shown as well. Sly Fox Brewmaster knows its trade .Kudos to you! Classic Pils from can? You bet.

Canette 355ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur jaune et aux très faibles notes voilées. Nez de houblon herbeux et légèrement floral et aux notes citriques, malté de grains pâle, léger de levures fruitées (agrumes et leur zest) avec des notes de biscuits et de pain. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement élevé et croustillant ainsi qu’une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes peu sucrées, surtout citron avec son zest) avec un goût de grains de malt pâle lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût moyennement amer et sec de houblon à la fois herbeux (herbes fraîches et foin) et floral (qui dure jusqu’en fin de gorgée, avec de faibles notes citriques) parallèlement à un goût malté rappelant des notes de biscuits et accompagné de notes de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve également de faibles notes de levures épicées (traces de poivre) avec de très faibles notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux et floral avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

Straw color that gives a medium head. The aromoas were a bit muted but showed some hp and tha crips clean palate offered more notes of hops and malt.

Poured from a 12 oz can. Nice straw color, fairly clear. Hoppy aroma, moderate mouthfeel, good beer for a warm day.

Stine (1747) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Clear straw pour. Honey, chardonnay and crisp apples on the nose. A mild hint of aluminum and a rotting hay mash construct a homogenous and almost foul body to start. Czech hops begin to perk up with warmth, and the interplay begins to click. These suffer from a muted catty putridity, but as a spicy whole they do a fine job to complement the crisp, sweet pils malt. Not the cleanest rendition – licks of corny funk leak through at times. Sprightly though somewhat empty palate. Good for the grill. Thanks Andrew!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Can via JB175. Yellow color. Smell of hops, malt, yeast, citrus, pine, bread and some spice. Tastes the same but very crisp and enjoyable. After a little bit of warming up, lemon grass and soem minor yeast are there. Very refeshing beer.

widespreadgus (1) - blackwood, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2007 does not count
from a chilled can. this a great example of a true german pilsner, can definitely taste the saaz hops in this !! when it is a fine product, the bottle or can is a mere vehicle for the beer to make it to my glass...not quite the excellence of prima pils but damn close !!!

From a can. Very recently hyped as far as using a can recently, have read several article in Philly about the great idea of going back to cans and the uniqueness of small breweries, this was crap, watery, tastless, I must have missed the crispness. Poured some into a glass and it was watered down cigarette water, nothing made me want to dring this again except possibly feeling there is a remote chance I got a bad one. Wanted to send it back but the bar I was out was so crowded and was starting to smell so like a locker room. Instead I had to left without asking for $ back.
