A: The beer is clear straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that died down but consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grainy malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of bready malts and lemon citrus along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very light and easy to drink, although the taste is not overly interesting. I couldn't see myself buying this beer again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A--Pale golden color. Absolutely crystal clear. Minimal head, no real retention or lacing.
S--Malty, crisp, exactly like you'd want/expect a Pils to smell.
T--Clean & crisp. Just like you'd want/expect a Pils to taste. Bready with grains.
M--Fairly highly carbonated. A light feel with a slightly dry finish. Really kind of nice feel to it.
O--100% fully functional Pils. Exactly what you'd expect from the style. Nothing exceptional, but not a flaw to be found either. All around, a quality beer.

Thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a plae golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is that familiar pilsener smell, malts, hops, some grains. Taste is malts, some hops, a bit of sweetness, kind of dry at the finish. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but just lacking a little oomph.

You CANnot imagine my elation upon walking into Pizza Boy/Al's of Hampden two Saturdays ago and spotting this gem in the cooler! I was ecstatic at the proposition of adding yet another of their beers to The CANQuest (TM) and I had to be physically restrained from just opening one and CANsuming it right then and there.
From the CAN: "Founded in Charlottesville, VA"; "The Gift of Great Beer [undersigned] Mark A. Thompson [,] Master Brewer".
The Crack spewed like the one that the dominatrix opened in Devo's "Whip It!" video which kind of irritated me as I was still in a suit and i dislike smelling like beer at work. Once it (and I) calmed down, I ended up with a finger-and-a-half of puffy, bone-white head with reasonable retention. Color was a light, pale yellow with NE-quality clarity and I was wishing for an SRM guide to better describe it. One sniff and I thought, "German!" Sho nuff. It had a beautiful grassiness, but underlain with enough malt to take on a slight lemony quality, as well as a mild sweetness. Mouthfeel was light, not watery, but soft, with a definite lemongrass taste that really speaks of the style, to me. Finish was semi-dry with the same lemongrass flavor that I caught on the tongue. Given that it is now available in CANs and summer is quickly approaching, I am recommending it for your cooler if you CAN find it in your area.

Beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a translucent straw with lots of bubbles and a small white head. Smells of sweet grain and possibly some corn, grain dominates. Tastes of barley, not much else, but with a bit of an aftertaste. Beer goes down great, really light bodied, heavy carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.
