Another canned extra courtesy of htomsirveaux, poured into a Duvel tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very clear, hay-colored gold. Absolutely fantastic clarity, with a small white head that left beautiful cascading lacing around my glass. Very nicely put together.

Nice pilsner malt in the aroma, with a bready note and a touch of sweetness. But there's also a slight vegetal quality that seems almost rotten. A little bit like cabbage stew, this smells quite off. A non-BA with whom I shared this beer pejoratively described the smell as "funky."

Thankfully, whatever off notes that come through in the nose don't impact the beer at all. Lots of pilsner malt and a touch of biscuit. Corn and wheat, with a robust bready character. There's also a slight fruity aftertaste that adds additional sweetness.

Carbonation is on the low side, but it's not terrible. Definitely an easy pils to put back.

I'm quite happy that the taste departed from the smell significantly. This isn't a style I often spring for, and I haven't found many American versions that I enjoy, but this is solid.

big thanks to channels321 for this extra. enjoyed from my "E" snifter.

a - brew pours a transparent soft straw yellow with a finger of fizzy bubbly head with streaky bubbly lacing. visible champagne like carbonation could be seen raging in the glass.

s - grain, flax...corn. german pils. classic but very grainy.

t - again, big grain bill...ut some soft sweetness that the nose doesn't advertise that helps bring this one into the craft realm.

m - a bit fizzy, but overall a smooth drinker. super easy to throw back.

o - overall, another great gateway beer when trying to convert a macro drinker. i just had the kelso pils a bit earlier tonight and that one had a great sweetness that this one is missing. although true to style and leans towards the classic german pils, i find the german pils to be imperfect for my tastes. solid pils, but not something i'll be hunting or stocking.

Slightly hazy pale golden color body. Very clean nose. Saaz is apparent. I enjoy the bready flavors and the overall hoppiness, but there's a toastiness that I'm just not feeling. Almost like this was brewed by New Belgium. Mouthfeel is bubbly and full; solid. This would be a pretty solid go-to beer if not for the toastiness. Kinda kills it for me. Solid otherwise.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Light golden beer, the color of lime juice. A fluffy head rapidly appears and dissipates almost completely.

Smell - Earthy with yeast and hops notes.

Taste - Good pilsner taste, dry with a solid hop backbone. Has a slight skunky aftertaste after a few sips.

Mouthfeel - Light and snappy with a good crisp feeling.
