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.

(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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Poured a Bright Clear yellow, with a small fluffy white as snow head. Smells skunky, but it was fresh. Taste is Light hops, Grainy, fizzy....I don’t know, There are better Pilz brews out there (Victory,Lagunitas,Sam Adams,great lakes......) I "May" try again 1 day, to see if I had a bad bottle, but this was not very good.

Pours clear light golden with a white head that leaves fairly quick. The aroma has smooth pils malt that is a little breadier than most pils and some spicy hops. Medium body with semi-soft carbonation. The mouthfeel is a bit bigger than many examples, but still refreshing. The flavor starts off with pils malt, sulfur, spiciness, grass and is overall quite dry. The finish has a bit more of the sulfur aspect. Decent pilsner from Southern Tier.
