Pale gold in color, with a bright white cap of foam.
Aroma-Pale malt,fruity with a spicy hop note
Taste-Spicy hops, floral, crisp and sessionable. Would make a great beer to have at the ballpark.

i'm partial ti pilsners, and this is a decent one. It holds its head for a decent length of time. It has a peasant hoppy smell and the taste is not overpowering. The feel is fairly full bodied. Overall, this is a decent pilsner. Apparently it is now retired; I hope SN will bring it back.

Just very weak. Name is probably carrying this beer more than it should.

I'm admittedly reviewing a very old bottle of SA Nooner IPA. Here goes:

A: Still looks good. Pours a huge head that leaves a ton of lacing. However, the carbonation in the glass is somewhat lacking (I attribute this fact to age more than anything).

S: Smells good, but rather simple. Lots of floral spice, lemongrass, citrus, and white pepper. Some biscuity malt as well.

T: Follows the nose. Very floral with a back-up of biscuit.

F: Only really bad part about the beer. Very light and watery. Perhaps this is because of the lack of malt sugars, but I've found other session beers that have been able to supply a full mouthfeel to their low-abv bodies.

O: Good, but not great.
