WolfsBlood84's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s 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 Having this beer again - It’s almost September and this beer went "Out of Date" in June. I’m 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 The only beer comparable to this in my local is New Belgium "Shift" - Crisp not only blows it out of the water (even out of date) but also costs $1 less!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.

omahaelectric (2) - hampden, Maine, USA - JUL 16, 2017 does not count
12 oz can, white bread crust and crackery malt character with moderate floral spicy hops in both flavor and aroma. Strong hop bitterness at 44 IBU is a little more than I want in a pils, but it is definitely crisp with a very dry clean finish

Bebum (990) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Clear gold. Full body, assertive flavors, bright and well carbonated palate, medium heat, long but indistinct finish. Bitter but well balanced by malty and sweet tastes. Aggressively hoppy, resiny, malty. Delicious, give me one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2017
Golden, light hazy only. Crisp, but not boring. Lemony hops. Pretty nice bitterness actually, lasting super long. Very drinkable. (33cl can at bbq party with Caroline and Liana)

Reid (2536) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2017
weird thin tall 12 oz single from Lifesource Grocer in Salem OR $1.79 Typical pilsner yellow body with a nice thick and foamy white head. Typical grainy mallt and grassy hop ( slight) aromas. Taste more balanced honeyish malts and grassy hop very similar to Pilsner Urquell. Nice complex for the style mouth fell. Very nice pils inded.

3.8
fkoolen (1212) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
Can at home. Golden colour, white creamy head. Clean and crisp pilsener malts and hops, grassy, light resin, medium bitter. Lively carbonated, light bodied. Session-IPA ish.

3.2
Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2017
A golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some hay, grass, and lemons. The flavor is *drum roll* crisp and dry with a hint of malty sweetness toward the end. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a straight up no frills but well made lawnmower beer.

3.2
Defreni (3214) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2017
Dåse. Lysegul meget let diset flot øl. Duften er let maltet med en minimal snert af humle. Smagen er crisp som lovet men ikke overdreven og lige i skabet. Ok øl.

3.4
JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Golden color with a somewhat wispy, white head. Touch grainy in the aroma with a grassy to floral hops scent. Grainy to lightly toasted malt flavors yield slightly to the floral hops and touch of spice and citrus. 3/11
