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 Having this beer again - Its almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June.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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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.

jredmond (8046) - New York, New York, USA - APR 14, 2017
Can served at Refinery Rooftop with Gabe, Vincent and Karine. Soft grain and faint spice on the nose. Pretty light aromas overall. Mouthfeel is light bodied and "crisp" with notes of sweet malt, gentle wheat, light grains and spice. Leans towards the maltier side on the spectrum of pilsners, but not bad.

Draft. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt, straw, and herbs. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, herbs, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Bottle @ SEP3DH. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, fruity, slight notes of malts, american hops dominates this, slight note of hay. Taste is rather bitter with loads of hops - American mellow hops. Rather bitter. Decent stuff.

I poured it from the can into a pint glass. It pours golden with a white head and lacing. The aroma is hops and fruit. The taste is biscuit, butter, honey, some fruit, and a touch of hops. Its crisp, refreshing, and very nicely balanced. This is a very good version of a sometimes limited style.

thegreenrooster (4280) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Pour is a hazy straw with a large white head. Aroma is a nice doughy pils malt with more of a herbal hop. Flavor is a nice a super dry biscuit malt. I did not get much in the way of hops with this. The finish is dry and clean with no remnants of it after the swallow. This is ok, a bit too malt forward and dry to give it a higher score.
