UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Short: World class pilsner of the gods
Origin: Texas Liquor Carlsbad Sample: 3x12oz Glass: Russian River Nonic Pint Price: $16/4 pack Date: 1/22/14
Long: Thankfully these are now in cans- also thankfully found refrigerated at Texas Liquor. Beautiful pour into the glass grants you with a massive, rocky, white head with sheen hop oil retention. Perfect sheers of lacing. Nose is ridiculous inviting biscuit, orange marmalade, fresh southern sourdough biscuit, flashes of jam and yellow spiced apple. Taste is quite hoppy with perfect malt biscuit backbone- sharp Victory style Prima Pils aggressive bite with a softer finish. Calcium and chalk finale is secondary to a long, lactic finish with huge grassy hop power. Extremely quenching and sessionable, almost begging to be devoured in 4-5 sips. Absolutely outstanding for all lager lovers out there. Wow- if your name is ryan, MrChopin, 3fourths you need to try this beer. Sweet, sweet Jesus. Even if it is stupid expensive, I am going back for more right now.
Flaws: Too expensive at $16 per 4-pack :0
Remedy: Hype this baby up, get this brewery into the limelight

Can from beers of europe. Clear gold color. Thin white head. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet. Body is dry. Medium body. Aroma and flavour is herby, hoppy, malt. tricksta_p (4538) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Can at home. Aroma is light grainy malt, biscuity notes, citrussy hops, grass, bit fruity, a tad floral and soapy with some spicy notes. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Nicely crisp and very drinkable citrussy hoppy Lager, goes down very well. caesar (7097) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Can from Firma Bier, cluster & cascade, large sample. Hazy golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma of grainy malt, soft spicy, grassy hoppiness, slight fruity. Medium bitter in taste, crisp, citrus, grapefruit, cereals, some sweetness. It has the crisp cleanliness of a lager, but the citrussy power of an IPA. Seems like an IPL to me.

Bomber. A big, alost gushing head. The beer is clear golden. The head falls into a mesa. The aroma is gentle sweet fruit. This is bitter. Grapefruit bitterness and the flavor brings that, too. More citrus and some tropical fruit. Caramel and pale malts. Well, hoppy lager seems to apply and it is delicious. It could easily pass for an IPA.

Decent lager beer with grassy aroma with a bit of pine. Quite mildly hopped compared to most american craft lagers / pils’s, but very balanced hop profile. I suppose my can wasn’t so fresh as aroma isn’t powerful or fresh even when just poured to glass. There’s quite a good amount of bitterness but not mouth-drying levels. Quite small head that vanishes quickly. Good quality lager but nothing so special that would stand out.

Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Grassy aroma with mild hops, faint pine and some toffee. Flavor is quite simple with hay and very mild orange notes, slightly grainy, hops are faint. Carbonation is strong, bitter grassy finish. Below average Pilsener, very disappointing.
Can from Vino Wines. Hazy bronze body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of chalky malt, grass and orange pith. Flavour of astringent hops and lemon zest - surprisingly bitter. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Astringent, almost sour tasting.
