3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a little bit of haze to the body and a robust effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy ivory foam with good retention. Attractive!

Smell: slightly grainy, slightly bready malt aroma with a hint of that lager-yeast scent. Hops are herbal and earthy. Overall, a nicely earthy blend, but it's a bit messy for the style -- not precisely "crisp" as the name would have it.

Taste: interesting malt flavor that starts off on the dry side but then exposes its sweetness. Hops are earthy but prominent with a hint of sweet fruitiness which really works here. Bitterness is relatively high. Perhaps not quite the clean, crisp Pilsner style exactly, but a good take on what can be done in those parameters. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess. Works for me!

Overall: tasty and drinkable ... what more do you need? I'll definitely look for this again the next time I'm in New York.

2.8/5  rDev -28%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours amber with a large, fading, white head.
Nose shows hay, spicy hops, grassy notes and light grainy malt.
Flavours are very hop-focused. Big spicy, floral, citrus-y and grassy notes. Little else. Some light malt. Assertive bitterness.
Nice high carbonation.

4.03/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a creamy, thick white head that recedes very slowly.

S: Aromas of biscuit, crackers, grain, straw, grass, herbs, lemon, lime, and honey are present on the nose.

T: Notes of minerals, lemon, lime, biscuits, crackers, fresh herbs, straw, grass, honey, and grain wash across the palate. The finish is short and crisp with lemon, lime, grass, mineral, and cracker flavors lingering.

M: Light-to-medium in body and quite dry. Carbonation is crisp and firm. This lager is superbly easy to drink and incredibly refreshing.

O: A nice lager that is more or less in the German style. The body is a little too slight and not quite dry enough for me to fully accept this beer as an authentic German-style pils, yet it is still very good.
