Can from Merchants. Aroma is earthy hop, slightly fruity, malty, floral, good. Appearance is straw yellow, clear, off white head. Taste is earthy hop, bitter, clean, slight corn, slight metallic, malty, cereal grain, balanced. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, grainy bitter earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, this may be the best pale lager ever, even if it says hoppy pilsner on the can. willisread (4207) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Can from J’s. Pours a clear, pale gold with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Lemony nose with grain. Slight peach. Crisp and clean, refreshing on a hot day. Hops faded as it’s a touch old but enjoyable.

Dare I say a passable pale lager? Pours gold w/ a big & foamy white head w/ spotty lacing. The aroma is kind of bready & malty. The taste is quite clean but the hop profile shines through moderately which gives the brew some substance. It’s pretty well balanced & overall decent. superspak (6654) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2017
12 ounce can into lager glass, best before 12/24/2016. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread dough, biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, cracker, bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread dough, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/creamy, fairly crisp, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great pale lager! All around great balance and robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and well balanced; without being too bitter or drying. A very enjoyable offering, and outstanding example of the style. Bitterbill (2112) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - FEB 16, 2017

Can. Pours lightly haze golden, large white fluffy head, dissipates slowly with nice retention and lacing. Aroma is grassy, bready, just a hint of corn and citrus. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, nice cracker maltiness with grassy hops and a citrus accent. Medium body. Pretty solid drinker. Oh and the reccurrant Talking Heads references are a total bonus IMO>
