Pours a clear golden straw color with a nice white head that doesn't retain quite as much as I would like it to. Piney/graipfrutey hoppiness with a quiet malt presence in the background. Sweet malt start with some very grapefruity hoppiness. I love cascades, but they are certainly not supposed to be present in a German Pilsener. Crisp and rather hoppy this brew would be pleasant in hot weather. I definitely liked this beer but it certainly doesn't fit the style with its definite american hop flair. This almost gives new definiteion to american pilsener.

Holy cow...considering the last review of this one was late 2003, I imagine this had been sitting at the Ten Pin Cafe (Martinsville, VA) a while. They'll do that at the TPC, unfortunately. But the beer tasted fresh enough and didn't exhibit any dead or old traits, so off we go...

Poured a decent head (1/2 inch) that disappeared quickly leaving a thin film of foam at the top. Tiny hive-like layers of lace. Golden/yellow color leaning a tad toward a darker amber shade.

Smells of hops, mellow malts, and a sweetness that reminds of white grape.

Straightforward hops flavor, nothing extreme. A honey-like mellow sweetness follows. It's good and drinkable, though it lacks uniqueness.

Feels light in the mouth, but not watery. Crisp, but hefty enough to carry the hops/malt on through.

Drinkable? Sure, no problem, a good session beer, just nothing to covet or brag about.

Pours a straw color gold with a fast fading white head. Thin to none lacing left on the glass. A malt aroma with a hint of hops hit your nose. The taste is the same malt start with a hop finish. Not bad but not great. I think this beer would go well with a burger, other than that it is another average beer.

The label looks a little generic, but OBX is the local abbreviation for the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Until recently it was available only at the Weeping Radish brewpub.
Pours a nice golden color, with a white foamy head. On the nose there is a slight hop aroma. The same on the palate, slightly hoppy and a slight sweetness to it. All in all not to shabby.

Courtesy of City Beverage in Winston-Salem. Unfortunately the beer is nowhere near as nice as the location. Pours a clear dark reddish-orange color with a thin off-white head. Very thin lacing. The aroma consists of some hops and spice. The body is a little on the thin side, and there is a fair amount of hops in the flavor, but very little else. Slight but lasting hoppiness in the finish. I would probably get this again if I were vacationing in the Outer Banks but not otherwise.

Here is one real drinkable micro-Lager from the Weeping Radish. It is crisp in taste and aroma for that matter. There is a certain clensing that goes on over the palate during the swallows. Goes well with heavier grub to cleanse the palate...Prost!
