12 oz can from alldaydrinker! Wow not bad for a pilsner! Seriously! The aroma is not that good but the flavor is above average. Strong hay aroma, kinda bad. Pour is light golden with a thick white head. Tastes of honey and hops, sweet sugar finish, some grass tones mixed in. Overall the best pilsner of the 4 I’ve had. Thnks alldaydrinker.

Thin layer of near-white, tiny bubbles. Leaves decent lace, though. Hazy and straw-yellow in color.
Smells dark and earthy, huh? There’s some lighter grain in the background. I don’t notice any hop. But I do notice a light sweetness that reminds me of fruit punch. Simply odd.
High level of carbonation, but the body seems to handle it well. There is a fruitiness to this beer that mirrors the smell. Decent balancing hop, but the aftertaste is of raw grains.
No hits, no runs, but most importantly, no errors. GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2009
A decent pilsener. Grain, euro-hops and a nice malt profile without being too skunky. Not bad. j12601 (11571) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Can. Pours a hazy yellow amber with a medium white head that falls quickly. Sweet malt, with a slightly off putting aroma of spoiled… milk? Sweet lemony start with a medium body and some grain flavors. The burnt/foul taste comes back on the end, along with a light citrus note. Not sure if I got an off can, or if it’s some palate kill from the other things I’ve had tonight, but this was not something I really want to sample again.

Can thanks to SoLan, thanks Alan. Poured a clear golden-yellow color with an inch and a half, rocky off-white head that slowly receded to a soapy layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt, a bit of dough, light honey, some faint citrus, and some lightly grassy hops. Smooth, crisp entry leads into some light honey, a soft yeasty doughiness, and some light citrus undertones (orange and lemon zest) that finishes with a moderately dry grassy hoppiness. Low carbonation and decent mouthfeel. Crisp, clean, and easy-drinking. This is a solid example of a pils, I bet it is really nice on tap. Thanks for sending me 6 Alan.

Can courtesy of Solan. Stale lager aroma. Cloudy yellow body with white head. Flavor had a zesty cirtus which was a pleasent suprise. Citrus by finish combated a bittering at the start so the bitter wasn’t overbearing. Decent refreshing brew. BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2009
On tap at Delaney’s Tap Room on a recent trip to New Haven
A- Pours a super clear hue of light yellow, head is mostly diminishing, light lacing
S- Mostly clean and crisp malts, some light grain and yeast, slight hops
T- Crisp bread malts and lager yeast, slight bitterness in the middle, finishes light and dry
M- Light-bodied, watery texture, good carbonation
D- This is a solid lager that would make a great session beer, good flavor and balance, alcohol is well-masked, extremely easy drinking DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Pale golden body, medium white head. Nice bitterness in the flavor, along with some sweetness. Good one. ironchefscott (357) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2008
grainy malts and almost applely hop aroma,
not bad not great, kinda a little better than the macos...but not by that much.... PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Can @ the Diamond: Light golden pour topped by a thin white head. The aroma is crisp and clean- some fresh bread crust malt notes, mild lemon zest/Euro-hop spiciness. Light on the palate with a crisp flavor. Biscuity malt back, dry-ish throughout with a soft flowery hop character and a touch of zesty lemon. A solid Pilsner. Underrated, in my opinion.
