COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Pours standard gold with thin soapy head. Tastes of grain, corn, grass, vanilla, and banana. Thin on palate. Standard pils nothing special

faint hops, typical smell. very little lacing. golden straw with small, quickly gone head. nice to have a euro style pils without the green bottle effect. other than that, its an eh. decent enough, but a shit price point for a pis...

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 23, 2012
(Bottle from Rising Tide) Pale straw color, clear. Off-white head. Aroma is a bit of bread, a bit of corn?!, a bit metallic. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but a bit prickly, fairly crisp and dry. Flavor is weakly bready and weak grain, appearing very much at first like a pale lager. Somewhat redeemed by some hoppier presence near the finish, esp. as it warms. Finish also has a touch of licorice. Forgettable.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Pours a clear pale gold with a frothy white head. Smells of herbs, hint of citrus. Taste of cereal, hops, mild bitterness without any real sweetness. Crisp.

r464 (1924) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Light and crisp with a bit of citrus, some hops, and a slight skunkiness. Dies off quickly in the finish. Not a bad pils, but not a standout.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Clear and golden, not a whole lot of head or lace. Smell is grainy, with a light hoppiness and just a touch of notable earthy malt. Taste pretty much follows, with a pretty tasty crisp hops accent to a slightly slick, somewhat sweet malt backbone, finished up by grassy notes. Body is light and a little slick with a slightly sweet, lightly hoppy aftertaste. It’s tasty but isn’t one of ST’s top beers. Would be nice in cans for fishin’ though.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours a brilliant and clean straw yellow with one finger of white head. Nose shows a bready sweetness with a citric and grassy quality and slightly papery notes. Dry and spicy with a nice hop bite.

jmm635 (860) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Poured clear yellow with a fizzy head. Light hops, straw, and grains on the nose. Pretty boring. Surprisingly dull for Southern Tier.

6 pack - Clear golden pour with a receding white-head. Bready and grassy aroma. Taste is light hops, slight malt and bitterness. Smooth and clean taste. Thin body. Nice pilz but nothing great. I like the similar options from Boulevard and Sam Adams better.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle with a dumb label from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours clear gold with a light white head. Nose of grassy hops and grain. Not as much lovely Noble-ness as I’d hoped for. Light and pretty unassuming.
