look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Light gold in color. Short lasting 1 finger bubbly head. Not much lacing either, and the clarity is par at best.

S: Peppery noble hops are noticeable as well as graham cracker sweetness from malts. Getting lots of sweet creamed corn scent on this.

M: Really nice mouthfeel. Light-medium body, smooth graininess on palate, and plenty of carbonation leading to a dry finish.

T: Fruity esters especially green apple and banana do tend to dominate. Some breadiness and mild bitterness on top of that. Graham cracker sweetness from pils malts, and floral hop note. Really just too fruity for a classic German pils, but not bad tasting- if cold.

Pours a yellowish-copper with a finger of head that dissipates down to a thin film that covered the liquid. Some lace settles on the glass. The pilsner malt is present in both the nose and flavor profile. The finish is dry and moderately bitter.

This is a mild but tasty offering.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, some mild malts. Taste is light, grains, malts, floral, a bit of an unusual aftertaste. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Gold in color, and it has a bounty of bleach white head. Two fingers worth, and the fluffiness looks like overbeaten meringue topping.

Crispy and herbal with pilsner malt grassiness and some bittersweet hops with zesty and floral characteristics. Semi-metallic, and leaning toward sweet for the style. Hints of green apple. Nice.

Very bitter upfront and following throughout. Crispy citrus zest and a bright flowery and grassy note. Pilsner pale malts with a salt cracker presence that almost has some salinity to it. Bold and refreshing. Extra grain in the finish. Almost too intensified, whereas, it's a lot more bitter than it could've been hoppy. Still, very pleasing.

Superman carbonation. It's huge and crushing. I don't mind big-time effervescence in a good pils, but it can be overdone. This is a burpfest. Body is nice and light. Not watery or thin.

I like this beer, a lot. Makes for a good pilsner. Cheers!

My first of the cans from North Country.

Pours more amber than I would expect for the style. Mild grassy nose. Flavor is consistent but a bit thicker than I think it should be for the style. It's smooth enough and an easy drinker for sure. Nothing overly interesting though.

S - Skunky, pepper, clove, old grass, a little banana, grains.
T - Taste is ok, bread dough, baking flour, a lot of grain, a little hint of in-discernible fruit, a little black pepper, some skunky metallic kinda weird taste on the end.
M - Light, kinda watery, and metallic.
O - Decent pils, nothing to rave about, kinda tastes like slippery rock water though...
