16oz can purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $2.39. No freshness date, but Orlison hasn’t been canning for more than a couple of months, so it can’t be very old.
According to the can, this is a “Light Pilsner,” and is 4.1% abv.
Poured into a Jever pilsner glass, this beer was a clear, pale gold, with a fluffy white head that dropped slowly and left lots of lace on the sides of the glass.
Although I poured it into a Jever glass, it was not nearly as assertive as that German pils (then again, few are as hoppy as Jever). Still, it smells the way a well-made pilsner would be expected to smell. Grassy and herbal hops, with a subordinate maltiness. It’s not an intense smelling beer, but .
The taste is much like a typical pils. There’s a tiny bit of a mineralish taste in the swallow, which is otherwise crisp and clean.
Mouthfeel is just where it should be: light, crisp and clean. Light bodied, as one would expect.
This would have made an excellent lawnmower beer over the summer. I think I could session this for quite a while, so the name is rather appropriate.

Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a moderate-to-strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy eggshell foam with decent retention and a little lace. Not too bad.
Smell: slightly sweet and slightly piquant -- whether from a noble hop contribution or a little grainy sourness it's hard to tell. I'm also sensing a little bit of adjunct here; it seems a little out of place. The aroma isn't as clean as I feel it should be.
Taste: a little sweet malt, a little grain, and a little bit of noble hop. Well-balanced, and without the adjunct-y element from the aroma, but pretty light-handed; there's kind of a watery element to the flavor.
Mouthfeel: light-bodied but with a pretty big carbonation. There's a satisfying creaminess to it.
Overall: this is not a bad beer, but it feels like more of an adjunct lager than a craft Pilsner. I feel like it has a lot of potential. That said, this is a highly drinkable brew: light, crispy and free from off-flavors. So, for high quaffability, points!

A: Poured a light golden color with a nice, fluffy white cap sporting great head retention leaving some small curtains of lacing on my glass
S:. A definite grassy hop presence with light grainy and biscuity backbone.
T: Upfront is a light hp bitterness paired with a floral/grassy hop presence. A light biscuit note with a light lingering grassy hop presence. the finish is dry, crisp and clean.
M: Light bodied, well carbonated, not overly sweet like many American made pils, crisp and refreshing.
O: Job well done. A nice, clean pilsener I will go back to.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with nice active carbonation and a fine, half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of slightly sweet biscuit malt and grassy hops; nice clean Pilsner aroma. Flavor follows aroma with sweet biscuit, slightly bready malt and light to moderate grassy hops that persist and produce a satisfactory hops bitterness to the finish. Listed on their webpage as a new, smooth drinking light pilsner and that's exactly what it is. Fairly tame, nothing ground breaking and could use a bit more aggressive hopping, but a nice sipping light pilsner that was perfect for our last hot days of the year in the Northwest.
