Clean at first, slightly sweet grain, then a hint of spice at the end. Easy drinking, light body. Slightly better tasting than a macrobrew, but is the price difference worth it? Maybe not.

12oz can. Pours clear yellow gold with a froth white head. Pale malt, citrus, grain aromas. Wheat, hay, lemon curd flavors. Smooth texture. Finishes clean with a light malt presence. Refreshing.

Ah ha! here’s one I’m surprised I haven’t rated before. It pours a standard clear yellow piss (yella pis geddit?) color. the smell is basically a straw, grass froth with a clear corny smuffleuff. The taste is smoove, relaxing, filling, wholesome, extrapolation-y, blessed, turgid, atmospheric, and taut. The palate is cumbersome and diffident. The overall impression is randomized, gruesome, and palatable. Good for a cuddly butt Tuesday of Peep Show, Rick & Morty, Bojack, and fleeting denial of the pit of doom surrounding us all.

maekchu (3947) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2017
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of grain, grass, and light peppery hops. Bright medium straw color, with some chill haze, a fluffy white head, and lots of carbonation rushing up. Flavors of grain, with bittering coming in quickly, bread. Okay ... but mostly just a lot of bitterness. The nose seems to be of noble hops, but it doesn’t resemble Saaz. Kind of disappointing compared to the other beers.

Juks (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2017
355ml can, Beerfox Riga. Pours clear straw colour, medium sized white head stays. Aroma of fruits, malts, some hops. Taste is malty, grainy, kinda creamy. Some grassy hops in aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carbo. Simple one, not bad. Enjoyed this cold can.

Draft @ Cedric’s Tavern - Pours clear yellow, tiny bubbles, lush, pillowy white head. Sweet malt, wheat, piney bitter hops, dry mid palette, metal spoon, finishes mostly clean. Solid.

Clear golden. White head. Usual pils aroma, grassy. Usual pils flavour. Not all that inspiring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pint. This beer is straw in color (decent head development, and settling), aroma, and taste. Body is light too. Everything about this beer is straight forward, more flavorful than some pilsners, but not as flavorful as others. Its doable at a good price.

Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2017
Can from Beergium. Oskar Blues, basically the inventors of the modern ’craft beer can’, turning to the most canned beer style in the world, namely the standard pale lager... Curious to see how this goes. Thickly (and attractively) papery lacing, irregular, egg-white, moussy head leaving an intricate ’land map’-like pattern in the middle, over a cristal clear, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer with no visible fizz, at least not in my tasting glass. Aroma of wet chicken food, damp kitchen towel, popcorn, camomile, unsugared culinary cream, freshly baked white bread, dough, baking powder, faint hints of honey, lemon candy and iron. Clean and neutral onset, no esters at all, just malt fruitiness, with a fizzy, minerally carbonation all around, but not harshly so; lean and supple, almost creamy mouthfeel, cream corn-like features, rounded and very cereally, ’bare’. Finish adds a dash of delicate noble hops, camomile- and straw-like, typical of Saaz but not as pronounced as would be the case in a fresh southern German or Czech Pilsener made with the same thing. Some late, mildly peppery hop bitterishness afterwards. Malt creaminess - this is clearly an all-malt lager - is made superior to the delicacies of the old Saaz hops, which is a bit of a shame: I think a firmer dosis of this noble and delicate Czech hop variety would make this all the more interesting. In this form: neatly done, for sure, but as a European consumer, I expect more ’oomph’ from an American craft brewery even if the aim is to imitate classic central European Pilsener. I’d happily prefer this over the vast ocean of industrial pale lagers, clearly, but this does not compare with a fresh German or Czech Pilsener from tap anywhere in Europe either, I’m afraid.

Nordcore (1532) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2017
Can 33 cl. Golden, cloudy with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, Brown sugar and hops.. Light bitter with a soft malt end.
