12 oz. can from a reasonable priced 15ct suitcase. Poured into a shaker pint. Poured a bright lemon yellow, slightly hazed, with a bubbly white head. Cornflakes, bread dough and citrus on the aroma. Light sweetness on the flavor with a fair amount of hop flavor, which makes it a light, but fun beer. Quite tasty. Light in the mouth, with a quick dry finish. Fair amount of bang for the buck.

RedSox2004 (1869) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Bright golden yellow with a one-finger bright white head that left a solid film and ok lacing. Grassy hops aromas with grapefruit and orange peel notes and a touch of spice. Nice balance of pale malt and grassy/earthy hops flavors. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, and a crisp clean finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2733) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Golden colored with a white head. Aroma is pale malt, citrus, grapefruit, light orange. Light bodied, drinkable, definitely not a textbook pilsner. Lacks the softness or the usual hop profile, but what’s here works.

Aroma similar to a fruity IPA, without the huge citrus flavor. Incredibly clean finish. Not exciting or special, but very drinkable

Bottle provided by Founders. The pour is a very bright gold, which, like any light lager, looks great under the summer sun. Just a little haze at first, and a foamy head that settles very quickly. The nose still seems to have some noble hop spice to it, but after a few sniffs, there’s the pine resin of those 3C hops. They don’t overpower, though. Just the American equivalent of a German Pilsener nose. The taste is where those American hops show up, with a big hit of pine resin up front, adding to its stated 45 IBU’s of hop bitterness. The malt is still light and crisp. The abv is 5.5%, so it’s not quite there as a session beer. I usually called light lagers bowling beers, but the extra hop in this makes it one of those camping beers; the kind of taste you want to bring on a long hike, and the reason small brewers started switching to lightweight cans in the first place.

Pours light gold and mostly clear with a foamy white head that sticks. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is hop forward with florals, pine and a grapefruit finish. Dry, crisp, clean but not your fathers pilsener. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (3906) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle, bb 2/18 apparently. Pale orange with a modest loose white head. 2 Aroma of mandarins, lemons and a little pineapple with hay and silage skulking underneath about to no particular effect. Not anything like clean with some boiled oranges and spicy pasture. Zesty citrus goes missing. Moderate but nagging bitterness. Not too flash.

Light lemon in the nose. Nice lemon flavor along with ending on a bitter hop bite.

3.5
Tmoney99 (14374) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop and malt aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well worth having.
