Can at home from notes. Pours a clear dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, hint of caramel, faded hops, citrus, bready, just ok.

This is the first single malt/single hop beer I’ve ever had where the malt completely dominates -- the pilsner malt is so prominent that it ends up tasting like a Budweiser hopped with some Galaxy. Sweet grain with that distinctive, pungent "pilsner" aroma, and a bit of hop bitterness at the end. Not really the best use of these ingredients.

Draught @ Malt @ Mold. Rich orange color with small off-white foamy head, doughy aroma, low carbonation, smooth body, caramel like malt taste, medium caramel finish. Nice and balanced.

Poured hazy light copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

12 oz can. Pours a cloudy deep yellow gold with a frosty medium sized white head. Aroma of pilsner malt, lemon, Galaxy hops and grapefruit. Taste is much the same. Good stuff.

I poured it from the can into a pint glass. It pours a hazy yellow and orange color with a nice white head and good lacing. The aroma is pine, hops, and citrus. The taste is hops, grapefruit, and other fruit. It had a creamy and smooth texture, which faded into a nice carbonation. This was very sessionable, especially considering the alcohol content. This is one of my favorite pilsners.

A gift from dlovell2 thanks! Poured from a 12 oz can. Appearance is slightly cloudy apricots, small head. Aroma is grassy and piney but also a big whiff of fruit. Taste is fruits and pine, tasty. Palate is clean and really easy to drink. Overall, pretty tasty, different type that my usual favorites.

Can from Capone’s. Pours golden with off-white head. Nose was pale malt, citrus, florals. Tasted hoppy, with pale malt, some citrus, and a medium complexity level.

[Can (12oz)] Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Lots of lacing. Odd aroma: Fruit, egg shells, bread and grassy hops mixed with grain and paper -- something like that. Flavour is dry, fruity and grainy along with grassy hops, bread and a long, slightly harsh, big bitter finish. Medium bodied. This does’t work for me at all.
