RATINGS: 737   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.35/5   EST. CALORIES: 210   ABV: 7%
Style: Über Pils ABV: 7% IBUs: 35 Availability: Year-round Hops: Warrior, Palisade, French Strisselspalt, Saaz, Simcoe, Cascade Malts: 2-row, Munich, Caramalt Arguably our most well-balanced beer, Small Craft Warning seems at once hop-forward and malt-forward; our brewers debate over which flavor force prevails in the beer. Small Craft exemplifies a robust pilsner—it’s crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly sweet. The beer is characterized by a firm malt backbone and a pronounced hop character. A fine aroma, from an array of hops, completes this quaffable beer.

Tried at a local tasting from a rep. from the brewery in nearby Baltimore -- and liked it enough to bring home a six pack. Larg, frothy head with a nice clean golden color. Minimal aroma at first, but I feel that as the lager had some time to breath it gained a sweeter, yeasier aroma. Overall, decent but nothing to write home to mom about.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Slighty hazy dark golden color with a fat, foamy sticky head. Great aromas of spicy hops that have a hint of lemon peel, rich biscuity malts and a yeasty snap. Not as crisp as the aromas would lead on. Prickly mouthfeel, but from carbonation, not so much acid. a bit flabby and fruity, with an apple flavor on the finish. Needs to be just a bit cleaner/crisper, IMO, and it would be a knockout.

egajdzis (6362) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Poured a lightly hazy, orange golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemon citrus, sweet malts, dough, lots of hops, and a touch of barnyard. Taste of lemons, a touch a spicy banana, caramel malts, and finishing with a nice hoppiness. No alcohol. Really nice, I am disappointed I passed this one by for so long.

A Pint a day keeps the scurvy away! Thanks Chuck! Pours a hazy golden color, no head. Aroma of fresh spicy hops, lemons, fresh smelling malt. Flavor is lots of lemon, pilsener malt, slight alcohol finish.

Thanks Chuck! Pours to a hazy straw colored body with a huge white head with AWESOME lacing. The aroma is banana, lemon, wheat. The flavor is actually not too bad. Saaz hops, banana, light malt. The palate is light and smooth; refreshing.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
well this beer gives a monstoursly tall white head about 3 times the size of the beer I poured. The beer itself pours a very light golden color w/ some light carbonation lots of sticky lacing. Big fresh saaz hop aroma lightly buttery w/ bannanas. Palate is fairly middle of the road ok coating. Flavor is a light sweet malt a tiny bit of carmel a little doughy an odd tart and yeasty flavor. Pretty good stuff. I was surprised as I didn’t expect much from it.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Blonde foncée aux reflets mielleux, dense mousse blanche persistante et adhérant remarquablement bien à la paroi du verre. Arômes d’herbes, de beurre, de foin et de houblons noble aux traits épicés. Belle base de grains sur des accents de levure, de pain et de notes très herbales, foin fraîchement coupé, tannins et légèrement fruités. Corps d’épaisseur semi-mince, carbonatation offrant un bon support, grande amertume de houblon en finale. Une belle bière! Échantillon au American Beer Fest, Boston, 18 Juin 2005.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Best by 10/05. Aroma is grainy with hints of banana and dry Saaz notes. Crisp with slight citrus. Transparent golden color with a frothy medium white head with some lacing. I get some sweetness to start, turning buttery and caramelly in the middle. Finishes a bit bitter with some more Saaz in there. Slight grapefruit bitter/dryness to finish. This is nice work.

Medium hops and sweet malts tie in nicely with a peppery spicey background. Quite good.
