Can via JB175. Yellow color. Smell of hops, malt, yeast, citrus, pine, bread and some spice. Tastes the same but very crisp and enjoyable. After a little bit of warming up, lemon grass and soem minor yeast are there. Very refeshing beer.

from a chilled can. this a great example of a true german pilsner, can definitely taste the saaz hops in this !! when it is a fine product, the bottle or can is a mere vehicle for the beer to make it to my glass...not quite the excellence of prima pils but damn close !!!

From a can. Very recently hyped as far as using a can recently, have read several article in Philly about the great idea of going back to cans and the uniqueness of small breweries, this was crap, watery, tastless, I must have missed the crispness. Poured some into a glass and it was watered down cigarette water, nothing made me want to dring this again except possibly feeling there is a remote chance I got a bad one. Wanted to send it back but the bar I was out was so crowded and was starting to smell so like a locker room. Instead I had to left without asking for $ back.

From a can. Citrus hops aroma. Sweet initial flavour with some tasty hops rounding it out with a drying finish.

Can Alfa Center City Philadelphia-Pours a light golden coloring with white head. Severely watery and lacking in flavoring for my liking. Honestly to be it tasted like a ice cold and watered down bud light. This was a bad experience, even let a few friends try it and everyone agreed won’t be trying this again..

IrishBoy (4185) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Can from JB175; Nose is grainy, yeasty, and lemon hops; Crystal clear yellow gold with a huge white head; flavor of lemony hop bitterness, breadiness from the medium light body with a big hop finish; maybe not 44IBUs as the can says but close. Great Pils!

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Can, from shadey I believe. Dirty appearance, hazy golden with highly carbonated head. Aroma has huge lemon, floral character up front, not much else detectable. Flavor much the same, lemon, floral, biting hop character. Soft pils malt, finishes fairly clean. Mouthfeel way overcarbonated. Decent overall.

highpoint (26) - lansdowne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2007
OK- a classic german pils in a can? Fantastic! Nice malt backbone, with lingering hops thruout. gold color, nice lasting head retention. if it was $20 a case, I’d be in trouble!.

Can From Doclock, Mystery swap 2.0. Pours a dull gold with a lasting head, very much like the pils I drink back home, but with abit more malt flavor, some sweetness. Very nice brew for me, enjoyed. Thanks Jeff!

There’s cans in there too! Nice extra from markgugs - thanks! Beautiful looking and quite lively, this baby is saaz-tastic. Crisp and perky flavors, super-refreshing after a post-work run.
