Tap at Phillies game (I was surpised, and very happy). Quite delicious, perfect for a hot baseball day. Light enough to drink a couple, but complex and flavorful to satisfy the beer nerd in me. Quite a wide range of well developed hop flavors, one of the most drinkable and generally delicious pilsners Iíve had.

12 Oz Can from PWalk. Pilsener out of a can. That canít be good, can it? Pours real nice, with a thin head. Nice golden, slightly cloudy appearance. Taste is quite bitter as one would expect with tons of German and Czech hops. Interesting, but good. I havenít had too many Pilseners in my life, and fewer that I liked. This new breed of Pilseners are bucking that trend. Good Stuff.

Recommended by our waitress... this was excellent. Well balanced and smooth. Didnít overdo the hops like some pils do as a crutch. Would like to try again, seeing as though I had already had nachos and the sampler.. my palate was pretty shot.

Pretty good and fairly clean and crisp, but with a somewhat "vegetal" taste floating in there. Nice hoppiness. Live Oak Pilz has spoiled me for sure. This is good, maybe very good, but ,,, thanks DockLoc

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 12 oz. can. Pours a hugh head. This one flared up quick and left some weird shapes of foam on the top similar to a chouffe tripel. Very sweet, pleasant aroma. Taste is crisp with a feel of a substance taste to it that is not normally found in a pilsener. Good beer for the price.

Light golden color. with a tall, bordering on huge, off-white head. Interesting kettle corn aroma, with just a hint of grassy/weedy hops. ouch to dull/flat in the aromas. Needs a sharp hops presence. Nearly lifeless on the palate. Smooth, but not much more character on the tongue. Mild grainy flavors with a light herbal hops backdrop that carries well into the finish. A decent keller brew, that is not a Pils, rather a hoppy light bavarian lager. Good for what it it. Iím likely a bit harsh on this one since I was somewhat hoping for a bavarian pils, but then again, it is what it is.

355ml can obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>zathrus13, thanks Jeff. Pale golden in colour, very long lasting bubbly white head, great lacing. The aroma is of light floral hops, some grains, bready malts, some sweetness. The flavour is crisp and grainy, a bit herbal, bitter floral hops, grassy, bready with some cookie malts. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes with a long medium bitterness. Very refreshing, cool that this came from a can.

Poured straight from the can! Light golden color, with a nice amount of head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, definitely has a hop bite, but is very refreshing, a nice summer treat. Thanks to Tony from BA for the can of this PA brew!

Looks like OB started something with canning good beer. Pours out (of a can) with a nice golden color with a decent sized fluffy white head. Aroma is of hops. Taste is very smooth with nice hop bite but a good balance of malt, some dry grassy flavors came out in the finish.

Pale, straw body with a white head. The aroma is bready, lemon and floral. The flavor is floral, herbal and dry. The mouthfeel is light and lively with a bitter end.
