mansquito (6722) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 26, 2015
Body is lighter yet correct for the style. Flavor shows the Pilsner malt, light herbal hops without much bitterness. Very fast fading bitterness after the sip. Grainy aftertaste. All in all, pretty much what it should be.
New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2ish): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is light fruitiness, one hops, and mostly malt. Taste is not really either a czech or a german pils. It kind of falls outside. Definitely a step above pale lager. Not bad though. Nothing off in this. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Poured into a lager glass, the appearance was a murky copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that held for a little bit and fell off at a good pace. Light stringy lace.
The aroma had some light lemon rind bitterness playing with a little bit of hop spice and then delicate biscuit/bready malt base playing tightly to signature a fine blend all around.
The flavor guided all of the previously mentioned aromatics together finely tuning the sweet to the spicy fairly nice. Aftertaste was moderately towards the biscuits and lemon. Finish was semi-smooth with a little bit of spice.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good as projected.
Overall, I didn’t mind this for me, but I did seem to think there was a bit more lemon than expected for the style. thornecb (5997) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with little retention recedes to sicken surface. Caramel, hay and toast aromas. Crisp with sour corn and hay upfront turning to mildly bitter earth in the lasting finish. Aurelius (5438) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee. Too-busy tallboy can. Huge, stiff white head on clear yella beer. Nice, mild, sweetish grainy malt aroma. Moderately astringent, slightly tart, fairly bitter, cereal husk flavor. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, longish tangy and graham cracker finish. Decent fishin’ beer.
