Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Poured into a pilsener glass from a 12-ounce bottle.

A: Pale straw yellow with good clarity. Fluffy white head quickly settles to a thin film on the surface.

S: Mainly grainy, cracker-like aroma with some floral, grassy hop undertones.

T: Malt lends some cereal notes, cracker, and a touch of honey, balanced with floral hop notes. Slight lemongrass tinge on the finish, which is crisp and clean.

Notes: Light to moderate in body with a very clean mouthfeel. Quite easy to drink, and a good offering for the Summer. I don't know why this one hit our shelves in early January. A solid beer, nonetheless.

A pretty good yellow lager, but odd for mid winter seasonal release - actual springtime would be more appropriate I would think.

Very similar in flavor/feel as Sierra Nevada Summer but with a little more girth to the crackery malt profile. Floral/perfumey hops bordering on annoyingly perfumey, but just stopping short. Nice clean lager yeast profile, but not too clean to not notice it as a lager.

A good lager, and its dated right on the bottle. More craft breweries should take notice of the quality and date coding.

12oz bottle served in a pilsner glass.

L - clear bright yellow color with a white head that thinned to a light layer leaving trails of lacing.

S - very European, a true pilsner aroma.

T - taste is also spot on for the style with bitterness left on the tongue and sweetness left on the lips.

F - light/medium bodied with a crisp, refreshing feel.

O - a good example of the style and a nice break in the winter months.

Took a tour of the brewery last saturday and this beer was served directly out of the fermenter. I was amazed at the clean,fresh, citrus flavor. I am a huge fan of the Imperial Stouts and my wife drinks Michelob Ultra, but, we both agreed this was a very nice beer to drink and we look forward to having it out on the market.

Southern Tier : Eurotrash Pils

Pours a clear light straw, small white head forms and recedes to nothing, no lace. Light aroma, grainy mostly with a hint of flowery noble hops. In the flavor, more grainy flavor, pale malt, very mild bitterness and almost no hop profile. Mouthfeel is good, crisp carbonation, a bit of a grainy bite. Overall, this is a very average pils.

On draft at Bobbique, Patchogue, NY.

Poured a hazy light copper hue with a faint whispy head.

The smell featured a light pilsner malt with subtle noble hop.

The taste consisted of soft doughy malts, earth, and a light cleansing herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was average for the style with a slightly prickly tight carbonation.

Overall a tasty summer selection. A nice run at the style.

Growler from Village Beer Merchant. Terrribly named, this was a great summer beer and kept its carbonation overnight, excellent drinakbility I was able to finish 80% of it myself and it went well with a weekend of meals. Generous retained head, a nice moderate bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. Really good for what it is.

Pours a clean pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, just like the name, just like a Euro pils. In the taste, a small Saaz hop and a clean standard pils taste. A small bite and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry and clean aftertaste. A clean European pils, nothing exciting, but clean and fresh.

got a growler from consumers on abbott road. reviewed from notes.

clear deep golden color, big fluffy pure white head. lots of great sticky lace, great retention.

grainy pilsner malts, earthy floral hops.

pale, sweet, grainy pilsner malts, a nice spicy floral hopkick, then finishs with the grains once again.

light bodied, yet full flavored, great carbonation for the style.

great session beer, a growler is an easy kill. if your into pilsners, drink this if you can get it.

On tap at Dwyer's... presented with a clear yellow brew with a creamy white head that Hung around a good time looks damn fine.
Smell is light sweet malt and a hint of hops.
Taste is a creamy sweet slightly hopped with noble hops.
Mouthfeel is creamy on the light side but perfect.
Drinkability is damn good on this one and lovely to throw back love it..

Poured from a growler into my Surly shaped pint glass. Poured a pale golden yellow color with a moderate bright white head to it. Pretty decent head retention as well as lacing on the glass as I drank it.

The aroma has a mix of grainy and toasty malts along with some earthy, herbal hops. Pretty well balanced and consistent with the style. Nothing extraordinary but not bad either.

The taste shows some of the same toasty and grainy malt characteristics the nose showed. A little bit of sweetness up front followed be a little bitterness in the finish. Hops are pretty moderate overall, but noticeable. It's pretty clean and crisp as a lager should be.

The mouthfeel is light and carbonation is moderate. Drinkability is decent, it's an easy drinking lighter beer. It was consistent with the style, but not something that really stood out within the style. Overall a drinkable beer but nothing to it that really stands out. It served it's purpose on this hot day though.

Got the growler filled at Olivers in Albany ($9.99) on 7/22/10. Consumed on 7/23/10. . . .

A: Poured from the growler into a pilsner glass. Could tell right away it was kinda flat. . . . Small film of a head -- white. Some bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass, slowly. A little bit of splotchy lace left on the glass, but not much.

S: Also not much going on in the nose -- slight fruit, slight grain.

T: Cereal grains and light malt. Touch of sweetness, finishes with a bit of citrusy hops. Lingering hint of grassiness.

M: Light-bodied, a tiny bit slick (likely due to lack of carbonation).

D: Very good. Goes down easy and the flavors aren't overwhelming. Could use a touch more crispness, but not a bad beer at all.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Really nice clarity on this one. Almost beautiful. A half finger of white head with a nice amount of lacing.

S: The smell was a little bit off. Cheesy hops. Not that great. The hop aroma just seemed a little bit off. The malt was fairly crisp but the nose was just not pleasant.

T: The first sip followed the nose but thankfully it got better. A nice crisp tasting fresh pilsner. Nice clean finish with only a touch of bitterness lingering.

M: Very light and refreshing. Well carbonated.

D: This one was just not quite there for me. It did get better as the pint went on but it was just a touch off. It was an easy drinker but the nose really did hurt it a little bit.
