3.18/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Clear yellow-gold, ok head.

Smell: Pears, sweetness.

Taste: Sweet and fruity, lots of apple and pear flavor. Slick and syrupy feel.

Overall: I like craft pilsners but this one missed the mark for me. Flavors leaned too far into malt liquor territory. It reminded me of Grain Belt Premo, which I also don't like. Tried both on tap and in cans, was actually worse on tap.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours from the can with a clear golden hue with rather modest head for the style; some splashy lacing lingers

Smell: Fresh baked bread with a grainy character; a spoonful of sugar and a touch of lemon also appear

Taste: Bready, up front, with a biscuity sweetness and a grainy character developing; grassy, with a hint of lemon, after the swallow; a bit of lager twang in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: An enjoyable pilsener, perhaps a tad too sweet; found this in the back of the fridge so the hops may have diminished somewhat over the six months or so since it was brewed

Thanks, DaftPatrick, for the opportunity

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.

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.
