Can! Pours a hazy bright golden straw color with a large foamy eggshell head. Aroma of grassy hops and straw. Flavor is sweet caramel, slight fruit, a little grassy bitterness, and a sweet sugary finish. Crisp, smooth, and pleasant. Good; nothing amazing, but refreshing.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Deep golden pour with a moderate white head. Aroma is of grain and a little hops, with a hint of spice. Flavor is solid Pilsner. Dry, and not at all light, nice finish. Very good beer in a can.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Pours yellow with a 1 finger, white, lacing head. Malty nose, mild and clean. Flavor is malt focused, bready and biscuity with spicy, grassy hop notes at the end that linger for a bit. Nice little pils.. . . .

BVery (9935) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Can. Clear yellow / light gold pour with a nice pillowy white head. Aroma and taste of grain, light fruit, and citrus. Fantastic for a pilsner.

madvike (3218) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Can - Pours clear yellow, effervescent with a foamy white head. Smells lightly sweet, with faint white grape and honey over some spicy, grassy hops. Tastes light and grainy, with a bit of skunk and some light fruitiness. Light, spicy hops linger just a bit through the finish. More body than expected, but still light. Just a solid beer that you dont have to think much about but that packs a decent amount of flavor.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
On tap. Clear golden yellow with one of the longest lasting pillowy white heads I have ever seen. Clean malty aroma with lots of spicy Noble hops. Flavor is malty but not sweet with a smooth hop bitterness. Light body, active carbonation and a super clean, crisp, dry finish. One of my favorite styles when done right, so refreshing and drinkable.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2010
A pils on tap at American Craft served in a proper pilsener glass. Golden stray color with just slight carbonation and 1 finger head. Very light bread aroma. The taste was some grain with little bitter and grass hops. Pils are pretty plain but this was good and refreshing for the humid early summer afternoon.

Nickls (2426) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
(Old BA rate - can) Poured with a rocky finger of white head, decent retention but not great. Spotty lacing here and there. Light, clear yellow gold in color. Just a few noticeable rising carbonation bubbles. Bready, and a little sweet at first, but a noticeable hop presence comes in. Nothing overpowering in either of those aspects. Just OK hoppiness, yes even for the traditional style. Bread-like flavors come in like the nose. Pretty tightly pulled together and clean. As expected, fairly thin but by no means too light. Would have expected to be a more snappy carbonation presence as this was pretty muted in the MF. Fairly refreshing, but not terribly interesting. This is certainly an easy-drinker, and would definitely put it in my sessionable range.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 Straw colored pour with a large white head. Smells of hay, grass, breadiness. Tastes biscuity and bready, balanced out with floral, hay, grass hop character. Light bodied. Fairly simple, but definitely the most enjoyable straight up pilsner Ive had so far. No off characteristics at all, and it lacks that odd, metallic lager yeast flavor most of them have.
