Can @ Malin & Daniels wedding. Hoppy and drinkable pils with notes of citrus, orange cest and grains. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Quite a deep amber Pilsner but I’m drinking by candlelight so that could be it. The nose is pure dry hop, like a face full of fuggle. Then the malt hits in the mouth with a long sweetness. It has almost too much. This whole thing seems a little under attenuated. MetalNHopHead (2018) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 6, 2016
The "American" aspect of this American Pils is its higher hop bill, and that makes it a Keeper indeed. Clear golden pour. Dank hop aroma. Hop-forward taste with earth and some zesty citrus. Quite a bit of bitterness and dryness at the finish. Just what I like from a Pils. polo_marco (332) - milton, Vermont, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Small vibrant of sweet malts with hints of lemon zest to finish the scent off. Golden in color with one finger white head that lasts a bit spotty lacing. Sweet lemon taste starts this brew off with a decent bite in the middle then a sweet smooth malt finish. Light body with super sparkly carbonation. Nice complexity for a pilsner love the taste and carbonation. Great job! User134089 (1644) - - AUG 4, 2016

From: Whole Foods in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
Purchased: July 30, 2016

Reviewed as: American Pale Lager
Misc.: Could not read the can on date, but did see the time (1:08 p.m. ET); Brewed and canned by Sly Fox
I’ve seen a few Mikkeller beers in stores lately and decided to pick this one up at Whole Foods in Manhattan Beach. Did not know the price until I saw it pop up on the screen and not sure I would have bought it had I known the price ahead of time. Realized when I got back that American Pilsner (which is on the can) is not a style yet on Beer Advocate. So I guess I’ll go with American Pale Lager like BA has it now.
Poured a medium, yellow, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good foamy spotty lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25)
Had a lot of different smells coming in here. It’s like when a Pilsner meets an American India Lager. I guess an American Pale Lager makes sense. Got corn cereal, sourdough bread, grassy notes, hay, white cracker, grain, Cascade hops and hints of citrus notes. (Smell - 3.50)
Taste pretty much followed the nose, for good or for bad. Really seems like the Pilsner notes and hoppy notes were battling each other with neither coming out on top and just coming out with a messy outcome. Got citrus zest, Cascade hops, grass, herbal notes, mowed hay, cereal and sourdough bread. (Taste - 3.50)
Light body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish. (Feel - 3.75)
This was a little better than I thought it would be after quickly glancing at the BA ratings. Still not good enough to want to have again on purpose though. (Overall - 3.50)

can from ølbutikken. Aromatic and dry, crisp hoppy, dry malty, not sweet. A super treat, the perfect hangover pils. poisoneddwarf (2569) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2016
12 oz can. Aroma is hay, cotton candy, dough, age. Pours hazy golden with a thick white fluffy head with excellent retention and some lace. Taste is bitter with flavors of old beer that was probably pretty good fresh. It reminds me more of old American pale ales rather than old pilsners I’ve had. I don’t see a readable date code anywhere, so who knows exactly when this was canned. I imagine long ago. StudHammer (29) - - JUL 25, 2016
Pours clear gold with a thick, frothy off white head. Tastes like citrus hops, resin, caramel malt, orange, and grassy. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, resin, caramel malt, orange, and grass.
Too hoppy for a pils. Bummer. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12-oz can. Pours a very cloudy medium amber with a loose white head that sticks around for a fair bit. Big sweet nose, some oranges and some sweet cream, very much a creamsicle. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light caramel, lots of oranges, lots of cream, grassy notes. Long sweet finish. What this has to do with an "American Pilsner" is utterly beyond me, but that’s alright. I sat outside, knocked back two of them, and distinctly wished I had more than two.

Can at home. Slightly hazy golden orange colour. Faint sweetness from a malt base. Some citrus notes, subtle hop bite. Splendid :)
