04/27/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

Surprised to see I've not noted this before. Glad I'm now adding it to the chronicle as on the first sip I remember why.

This brew has a lot of flavor & body but a misnomer for a name. Crisp is nowhere in sight. This may be someones cup of tea, but that someone ain't me.

Appearance: deep orangish yellow color. A full 3 finger foamy head that fades fairly quickly and leaves just a small lacing behind. Strong, almost perfect clarity. 3.75/5

Smell: earthy pilsner malts. Hops mostly spicy but with a slight hint of citrus. 4/5

Taste: a nice light pilsner malt sweetness, some earthy and grassy hints. Lots of strong and bold hop flavors. Starts off with a fairly subtle citrus and quickly becomes a bold and strong spicy noble hops. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: light to medium light body. Good crispness. Slight dryness, slight lingering bitterness. It's a certainly refreshing. Pretty good clean feel. 4/5

Overall: a solid pilsner offering. Great to see a nice refreshing well done lager so easily found. Great for a barbeque or post run in the summer.

Definitely some hop and citrus. Not an over abundance of each but you can taste 'em. Good golden color, nice head but maybe just a tad too much carbonation for me.
I guess actual hardest part for me to LOVE this beer is the worst, i am still a can hater. I know the pros and cons but hell I don't drink any beer out of a can! somebody help me get over this!
