look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

A light, but clear, golden appearance with subtle carbonation. A one finger head, which dissipates quickly.

The smell has a lot of malt and sweet apple.

This very much tastes like a beery apple cider. The most unique flavor is of apple, with a distinct malt flavor in the background. The feel is quite light, which fits the style well.

All in all, I could see this being a very enjoyable summer beer. Despite being a lager, this has clear notes of both malt and apple. A pilsner with attitude, something which is surely lacking.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.

Appearance:Pours a bright and clear straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A bready and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of biscuit and grains. Pale malt with hints of grains, biscuit, lager yeast, straw, cracker, and cereal. Subtle backing presence of earthy hops with a scent of noble hops. Subtle hints of lemon fruit. A pretty decent light lager aroma.

Taste: Like the nose hints at, a bready and fairly sweet malt driven taste with notes of biscuit, grains, and cracker. Upfront pale malt with notes of biscuit, grains, wheat, cereal, straw, lager yeast, and cracker. Light hop backing presence with some notes of earthy noble hops and some citrus notes of lemon. Crisp and nicely bready. A pretty solid summer lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, and pretty smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A solid local take on a light summer lager. Nice sweet malt notes with a nice crisp dry finish.

Clear straw color with one finger of head sitting over active carbonation. The head settles to a thin cap. Nice amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma smells like it has a touch of tartness or sourness. Some spicy hops with notes of pepper and earth.

Flavor is dry, spicy, earthy, and bready. Moderate bitterness. A faintest hint of sour. Nice Saaz hop flavors that is nicely carbonated by the dry, slightly sour malt.

Easy drinking light body and active carbonation. The lively carbonation compliments the light, dry beer.

Pleasing to the palate that has a bit of a unique twist for American versions of the style.

This is one of my favorite US-produced pilsners. Great all-malt body, crisp hop bite, but very drinkable on a hot day in July. Well balanced, and well done.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop beer glass. It's very light colored and clear with a one finger white head. It's a nice taste but I don't taste the apple that others taste. I'd prefer a bit more carbonation. I'd buy it again though. It would be a good summer beer and a good one to keep on hand for others who don't like their beers as chewy as I do.

Lemon, Grainy, Easy drinking. This could easily take a place in my fridge as an everyday beer. Crowd pleaser for sure.

Hard to get excited about. Solid but unspectacular.

This is a rather nice middle of the road Pilsner. I generally prefer a little more hoppiness, but this is really solid and balanced. A great summer tipple.
