Taste: Pilsner malt, biscuit, honey, and slight caramel with just a hint of hops.
Mouthfeel: Oily, very drinkable, and actually slightly viscous for this style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the bierkoning, canned on June 2nd 14. Slightly veiled gold pour with white head. Aroma is quite authentic, nice bready pilsner malt, light grassy hop, very light citrusy notes, really light and fresh, smells promising. Taste is hoppy, nice citrusy hoppiness, not IPA like but certainly on the american side of things, very easy drinking, light bready malt flavor, quite dry, very quenching. Palate is light bodied, medium carb. Well done.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the can, served in a Surly pint glass. Kind of a dull beer - not my favourite of Surly’s beers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can poured into shaker pint glass. Straw colored with plenty of carbonation. This is a pleasantly surprising beer that packs more of a punch than a lager style effort should. Malty backbone mutes the hops here, very biscuity with a bready feel. Refreshing and above and beyond most other options within the lager/pils field. Really solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden with a thinner eggshell head that settles to a ring and leaves some slight spotty lace. Nose involves fresh dough, some hay, some spice, some fruity notes, some savory lager yeast. Lightly sweet, fair bitterness. Lighter bodied, crisp, active, a bit oily, with a fairly lengthy doughy finish. Tasty brew, easy to drink, about pitch perfect for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Hackney’s Printers Row, 6/3/14
Aroma: The aroma has some grains and light hops, that are mostly herbal and grassy
Appearance: This one pours a clear golden color, with a small head, and light lace
Flavor: It has a clean malty and hoppy flavor to it, it is light sweet, and has a light bitterness
Palate: Smooth, clean, and easy drinking, medium bodied, with a clean, lasting, light dry finish
This is a pretty nice example of the style. Maybe it isn’t the most amazing style, but the beer itself is pretty enjoyable. I could happily session this on a warm day in hell (or even a cold day for that matter).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can (canned 1/3/14) poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Pours a clear straw yellow with almost two fingers of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, tropical fruit. Tasting notes of wheat, citrus, lemon peel, a bit of biscuit. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, slightly juicy mouthfeel. Nice after a long and warm day.

Hazy straw color. Weak aroma. Some lemon and malt. Flavor is malty, biscuity, with a touch of lemon and earthy hops. Solid session ale.
