3.16/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On-tap at Rattle 'n Hum, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The beer has initial flavors of bready malts but these are quickly replaced with flavors of herbal and grassy hops—the hop flavors dominate the overall taste and linger through the finish. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer definitely taste like it could use more malts to help balance off the hops, especially since their herbal and grassy flavors are unusual for the style.

From 11/27/13 notes. Had this on tap at Pony Bar HK in NYC. 14oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a somewhat clear golden-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, bready malts, wheat, dough, and earthy malts. Not a ton going on here, pretty malty.

t - Tastes of grains, wheat, vegetablrs, biscuit malts, toast, and earthy malts. Again, not much taste to it at all.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Easy to drink lighter beer.

o - Overall a decent pilsner but nothing too special. Not bad at all and easy to drink, but not much going on in the nose or taste. Not my favorite from SingleCut.

4.05/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured on tap at Churchkey into a snifter glass.

Quite a pale nearly straw colored body but with some bright brass gold to it, and very crystal clear. No head given, just a small collar. Some really nice pinhead rising bubbles though sporadically.

Nose is big. Like a giant dough ball. Minor husk but big rolled pizza dough and biscuit cracker. Hop angle not noticeable with the malt distinction quite blurred.

Palate follows the nose. Once again a giant liquid bread bowl but a hint of crisp on the finish. Large baked bread sense but a bit industrial? Palate is extremely dense but manages some crisp snap. Hop angle only comes out with some grass when beer warms.

Really off kilter and a bit odd but very enjoyable.

3.19/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Served on-tap at Drop Off Service in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and just a hint of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin film and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of bready hops with some moderate aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready malts that quickly fade into moderate flavors of herbal and grassy hops. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A little more hoppy than I would have expected for the style and I was surprised by the presence of the herbal hop flavors. This was an OK offering but seems to not really fit into any style quite exactly.

I was excited to taste this beer as Singlecut is new to the New York area. The beer started off with a bit of a fresh taste, but then went to bitter and with an even more bitter finish. The head was decent, but the beer just looked light and unexciting. It lacked the proper fresh flavors of a pilsner and finished so poorly.
I wanted to love the beer, but nothing smooth from the color sold me. When you look at a beer that light, you expect more or disappointment. I got the later.

On tap at the brewery...

A: Perfectly clear. Thick white head

S: Classic pils smell, I also got a light vanilla nose

T: Hoppy! Definitely more assertive than other Pils I've had recently (Lagunitas, S.Adams, Crisp, Stella). A bit more malt too than others so there is a balance. Hops are grassy, spicy, and a mild touch of citrus to my palate.

M: Very clean

O: I'm definitely a fan of SingleCut's hoppy ales, this is the first of their "lagrrrs!" I've tried. IMHO it may be closer to a German Pils than Czech. But it's unique and I give them points for going in a different direction than the typical Pils produced. I really enjoyed it

A friend of mine brought a growler of Single Cut's 1933 Queens Lagrrr over this weekend, directly from their tap room in Astoria.

Really clean, crisp, easy-drinking with some bite.

Paired wonderfully with some grilled food I was having at the time.

Thick white head, crystal clear and golden body in the glass. It must be über filtered to get this clear.

I had this beer last year in their tap room grand-opening (it was packed!) and thought it to be average. I chalked that up to an ambitious new brewery still getting their feet wet, because their other offering (Dean I believe) was top notch. This newest batch of 1933 Queens Lager is really good and I'm so glad I got to try it again. I could see this being a great go-to/everyday craft beer, I hope my local gets it one of these days.
