can, pours light gold, light white head. Aroma is light sazz and malt. Flavor is nice and malty with a peppery sazz finish. Nice pils. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Nose is mostly bready with hints of grass and lemon. Pours pale yellow with no head and some light haze. The flavor has a hint of fruitiness not usually found in a lager. This is followed by bread, grass, and a light pepper note. There is a slight metallic note that I picked up towards the end. Light with crisp carbonation. Lingering grassy notes.

Can, bought in Connecticut. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grain, malt, and a little fruit. Flavor is grain, honey, grass, and malt. A decent session beer. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2009

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Can. Aroma of lemon with touches of grassy, leafy hops. Flavor continues to be very leafy with large doses of doughy malt. However, a harsh graininess and astringency work their way in, along with some diacetyl. In the end, not very good. LilBeerDoctor (4218) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Can. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of diacetyl and grainy cardboardy wheat malt. Tastes alright at first, very sweet though and then a diacetyl and wheaty finish. Blargh, this was pretty bad, especially the diacetyl. A flawed beer. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This unfiltered German-style Pilsener offers hay-like cereals over grassy hops, while a lemony edge accompanies the herbal, leafy finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam thins out over the hazy straw yellow.
-The pils malts are quite bulky; this could be crisper, methinks.
-That citrusy character is pleasant, but also atypical at times.
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout, but I admit I would have liked a more compelling finish.
-This is not a very memorable pils, but it is still quenching.
