3.24/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

Really light pale yellow color with some thin white head that went very quickly. Light malt sweetness in the aroma, with a very faint lemon scent. Lemon carries through to the taste as well, even more than the aroma. Dry, spicey hops with a touch of bitterness. Light body and crisp light carbonation.

Serving type: can

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with rather small head. Nose has some herbal, grassy, floral notes. Palate offers a nice bitter snap at the beginning, malt in background, and herbal to floral hops rounding things out. More dry than expected, and also very drinkable and refreshing.

3.96/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pilsner-style glass.

This pilsner has a light golden color and is nearly transparent. The head on the pour is light and fluffy and has good persistence. There is a lot of lacing along the sides of the glass and after each sip.

The smell is mildly sweet, mild floral hops, and subtle, pungent bitterness.

The beer starts off tasting bitter and floral before finishing with a dry, malty sweetness that reminds me of honey.

Overall, the beer is smooth, crisp, balances the bitter aspects with some good sweetness and is very easy-drinking. This beer is a good representation of a pilsner and I recommend it to all visiting New Mexico.

3.51/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, pale yellow with a frothy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of pale malt with a touch of spicy hops.

Tastes of soft malts with a tinge of hops. Malts lead off with some grainy sweetness. Has a slight dryness to it. Hops make a bit of an appearance with some grassy and spicy notes.

Mouth feel is light with an effervescent amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice, light pilsner. I would prefer some more hops, but it is still good as is.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Big white head settles to a bisquity mound in the middle of the glass with a very thin lacing around the edges of the glass above a bright clear light straw golden colored beer.

Light soury lemonish aroma with some light peppery spices adding to it.

Light almost sourish taste with some light malts and even light yeast aspects coming through with this light tasting beer.

Dry aftertaste with sour souring to it and without much distinct tastes adhering to this lighter bodied pils.

Not really enough here to warrant wanting any more of it, I think I'll stick to their IPA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but fairly plain.

3.23/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This beer pours, from the can, a nice light yellow color with a robust cap of foam. The nose is bread, cracker, and German hops, a peppery earthy blend. Light and nimble as it traverses the palate. The malt deposits its paleness as it goes. More cracker than bread, which is a flip-flop from the aroma. This quickly progresses into grassy, bitter hops. Nothing wrong with this pilsner, but nothing that makes it stand out either.

Described as a Traditional German pilsner. Draft pint at the Marble tap room in Santa Fe, NM.
Arrived clear dull gold with thin white head. Aroma of grassy biscuit green tea. Taste is malt and hops grass. There is a slight sour citrus metal finish. Clean and precise. A good pilsner.

Smell: Very clean. Just some vague hops. Soapy.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Not much here. Some citrus hops on the palate and a clean finish. Good mouthfeel though.

Drinkability: Nothing bad, nothing great, so it's decent overall.

Overall: An ok American pilsener.

In a pint glass this beer was a pale gold color with a small white head.

It had a sweet malt aroma with a kiss of hops.

It tasted just as the aroma promised. Malt with a bit of citrus hops.

Crisp and refreshing, a good beer to have while sitting outside on a porch.

A decent beer, nothing outstanding.
