A Classic European pilsner given a new springtime spin with wild sour accents of organic agave and natural blue poppy seeds planting a sweet, nutty balance. Our Poppy Agave Pilsner is summoned by a strengthening sun from two-row Pilsner malt and Noble hops. It melts snow and thaws souls with 30 IBUs and an ABV of 5%.

No longer retired as of Summer ’16 - part of their Summer Variety Pack and this time labeled as Ale instead of Pilsner

Bottle. Poured a nice golden body with thin head. aroma is grainy, light tropical fruit - reminded me of a pale lager. Flavor is fruit, grain, and light hops. An odd bitter sour after taste follows. Interesting...but not a good interesting.

Poured from bottle. Earthy smell at first, then floral aroma. Nice looking clear golden, white head persists. Hops and agave flavors blend together making this unique. Pineapple notes. Floral aftertaste. Clean and crisp all the way through. I liked it.

Draft. Its like a mexican pils. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. I get the agave in the aroma which is quite pleasant, some nut aromas as well. Flavor is more grainy and dry with some sticky lagered notes and a hint of bitterness. Not very good over all.

The only real train wreck encountered at the last Richmond gathering. Golden yellow. Tasted like cereal. Just straight up cereal, almost like a generic rip off of Cheerios and puffed rice mixed together. Very sweet, and also suffered from an odd, undefined spice finish. Just a disaster. This has actually grown worse in my mind since I tried it.

ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gilly’s, 4/2/09

Aroma: Malty sweetness, some floral/earthiness
Appearance: Kind of a clear pale gold color, you could mistake it for a Miller Lite (not a compliment)
Flavor: Kind of an earthy sweetness with a little sourness in the aftertaste
Palate: Lightish body, not a terrible mouthfeel
Overall Impression: It’s not a bad beer I guess, but at some point I need to learn not to try every new beer these guys make, I never really like any of them.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a clear straw-gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is honey, sweet fruit, tea, and slight gran. Taste is roughly the same, with the grain and tea notes coming out first dissolving into an interesting combination of hop bitterness and fruity sweetness. Remains rather smooth and went down easy. I didn’t mind this at all - kind of surprised at the low ratings.

Medium light body with moderately high carbonation. 5/2/5/3/10 - 2.5 Bottle courtesy of phuktifanno on 03/14/2009. Clear golden yellow body with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet honey nut cheerios and faint tea-like hints in the aroma. Sweet honey, light grain, some faint hoppy hints. Medium body with moderate carbonation. 5/1/5/2/10 - 2.3

mrant (330) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Smells mildly of toasty malts, not much. Taste is crisp and refreshing, light yet enjoyable. Mild malts and weak hops, but very fresh and refreshing. Not terrible.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Pours clear golden with thick white head. Quite aromatic with grassy notes and some fruitiness. Flavor is light hops and some apple and lemon. Nothing special.
