I had picked this up during one of my recent visits to D.C., but the picture approval process took a while and no CANQuest (TM) beer will ever be reviewed until a pic is in place. How do you lose a rhino? Why would you feel CANpelled to chase after it if you did? Is this a Virginia homage to a San Diego surfboard company? I seem to remember a chain of Rhino Chasers in the mid-to-late-1990s, including one at LAX. This has me CANfounded!

From the CAN: "Premium [CAN]adian Pilsner and Munich malts create a sweet backbone, but hops are what really make this brew stand out. Spicy hop flavor and fresh aroma are from the U.S. grown Hallertau and Saaz. Uncluttered and sharp, our pilsner relies on the basics of lager brewing. Good water, excellent ingredients, solid brewing practices, and lots of patience."

The loud Crack! was music to mine ears and to celebrate, I CANducted an inverted Glug. My stein glass (over)filled rather quickly and so I had to curb my enthusiasm for the moment. The end result was what looked like lemon meringue pie in my glass - a dense, two-finger cap of fluffy, rocky, bone-white head atop the hazy lemon-yellow liquid (SRM = > 1, < 4). I was also put in mind of the old sitcom saw where someone puts too much detergent in the washing machine and suds go everywhere to comedic effect. When I did it as a kid, no one found it particularly amusing. Nose was like lemon, grass and back pepper all intermingled. Mouthfeel was soft, caressing, the way the style really ought to be. The taste left no doubt as to which hops they had used. It was as grassy and spicy as any imported Czech Pils that i have had and yet it was AmeriCAN made! Man, this was really good. The finish was semi-dry with the malts keeping it from being over the top. This would be excellent on a hot day and a welcome addition in the beach cooler.

Can at Right Proper Brewing Company, Washington, DC

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down and left a thin patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of grassy hops with underlying notes of bready malts. Hints of spicy hops are also perceptible. The hops lend a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener has a nice does of hops and really opens up your palate. It would be a good way to start off a meal.

Picked this up at a Whole Foods in Falls Church, VA. Foggy yellow/gold. Lots of lacing on the glass. This is a somewhat earthy pilsner with a grassy tone and a very mild inky edge. Actually pretty easy to drink. A bit thick, and by a bit I mean just a tiny one. Not too bad.

A thanks goes out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Pours a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, some lemons. Taste is a tad tart, some lemons, spicy, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall us a sessionable beer, tasty and easy drinking.

Solid standard offering by Lost Rhino.

A: golden clear, with medium lacing.
S: not much nose
T/M: little sweet with notes of date/raisin initially on the tongue. That is taken over by the typical pull of a Czech pilsner on the tongue. Finishes crisp and leaves a little feel of carbonation on the tongue.
O: A well balanced Czech pilsner that is both crisp and mildly malty, but has a good backbone of hops bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap
