WolfsBlood84's rating

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 Fresh 16 oz. can - Pours a deep golden with some minimal white head which quickly disappears. Some lacing when swirled. Aroma is light malt, and a big nose of grassy/earthy hops. Taste is slightly sweet malt upfront, then huge hop punch in the back-end. Although its only 42 IBUS, with only a little and light pale malt to hide behind - the bitterness comes through huge. While I would definitely say this is "not to style" or an "Americanized" verison of the style - at the end of the day it is still an awesome, easy-going, hoppy lager. If you are into German or Czech Pils and are looking for a really nicely priced session with a hop punch this is highly recommended. Having this beer again - Its almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June. Im really convinced that is one of if not the best pale lagers on the market. Dry, bready, semi-honeyish malts upfront - even being this old (although clearly fading/faded) this brew is still grassy, green, bitter, herby with a clean dry finish. The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less! This beer deserves more respect.

12oz can pours yellow with fast fading head some lacing a bright nose with a rather average pilsner flavor very standard for the style.

caesar (6816) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2016
Tap @ Kromme Haring, 25 cl sample. Goudkleurig met een lichte waas, kleine schuimkraag. Aroma combineert licht granige mouten en een beetje zwavelachtige geur met moderne citrushop. Redelijk bitter in de smaak, wat granige crackers. Drinkt gemakkelijk door, zoals een pils betaamt, maar toch met een flinke lading moderne hop eroverheen. Modern lager. Prima.

Can at home (bb 07Nov2016). Pours clear light hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of fruity, floral hops, bready sweet malts. Taste is moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter, bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

3fourths (9274) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2016
From can its clear sparkling gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is tropical fruit (pineapple juice, pear, mango), gelatin, artificial candy-like (SweeTarts). Medium-light bodied, lightly sweet approach before an overbearing finishing bitterness thats raw, grassy, stark. Dated best by Feb 08, 2017.

oobawa (800) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Apt name, since the hops are sharp and medicinal, lingering on the palate throughout the beer. Snappy apple with a cereal malt back, mildly sweet laced with a hint of tartness, followed by a strong Euro-hop finish. Drinkable, improving as it warms.

tfontana (837) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Can pour into taster cup at One Stop Market 30th Anniversary. Appearance is light yellow, light sparkle, thin ring of head. Aroma is subtle, nondescript. Taste is cracker, pilsner malt, tart. Palate is medium bodied with dry, tart finish. Overall, fairly bland and whats there is pretty run of the mill, but pilsener isnt really my style anyway.

Andrew196 (1624) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Draft at Shepherd Park - Pours a clear rich gold, thin by foamy white head with slippery lace. Smells pretty fresh, clean, apples, a hoppy edge. Probably one of the best pilseners Ive had....very well rounded, well balanced taste. A subdued hoppy bite, floral grains, traces of citrus, no skunk, no corn flavor, some ripe apple up in there. Everything I like about the style, nothing I dont.
