12 oz can courtesy of an extra from lb4lb. Thanks, Deniz. Pours a lively hazy straw yellow, big white bubbly head that sticks around moderately and laces some. Decent enough. Aromas aren’t as pleasing, some sweeter malts, grain, and creamed corn mix in with a touch of gumball and a creaminess. Interesting. Initial is thicker bodied for the style, pushing a seemingly sweet vegetal quality, some graininess, gumball and light floral and lemon. Ok, but the vegetal quality ruins it for me. Cheers.

This beer pours golden with alot of head. To me this is definitely a beer for the people who are wanting something lighter for those hot summer days after mowing the lawn. The smell is fruity, sweet, bread with some malt undertones. I can drink many of these easily and could prolly keep going. I am taking some of these to my BMC friends to see what they think. Show them there is other beer out there. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 04-06-2009 16:32:09 --

12 oz. can served (previously straight out of the can at a friend’s BBQ) in shaker- poured semi transparent what held to a light source, light golden color- kind of like wheat straw after a hard rain and wanting it to get baled. Solid half finger foamy off white head formed, laced nicely, and tried to steal one of my last smokes. Appealing aroma of "German" hops, wheat, and a faint note of the malt itself. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, but let the body fool you- malt is there from the first time it hits your tongue, mild caramel notes in the middle, finish has a mild stickiness to it. Definitely having at least 12 in the fridge at all times for the hot ass summers down here in Texas this year.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 Can thanks to Blutt59. Pours a dirty blond, hazy, with white fizzy head. Aroma of some faint citrus and faint malt and yeast. Flavor of some malt, faint citrus, faint hop flavor, bready. Mouth feel is medium body, medium-high carbonation. Overall, a nice simple pilsner. Tasty.

Pours amber with a huge white head. Sweet, butterscotch aromas with a faint herbal hop bouquet. Buttery flavors typical of some English styles, along with a fruity note found in some dark Belgians. Medium body with a slightly tannic finish. Bizarre.
