A: Dark yellow, good head with thick and lasting lace.
S: Light fruit, but full and appetizing
M: Candy like sweet. Telltale dryness in the swallow
T: Pilsner with a kick. Solid hops with Pilsner dryness with a rear end of alcohol that sometimes makes a Pils lose some of it's impression. Not this one. Very tasty stuff. I'm not a huge Pils fan, but when I get one that is crafted like this, I'm a repeat buyer.

On tap at the ginger man, nyc.

Aroma...strong citrus, grapefruit pineapple..like a sea breeze. Some ether.
Appearance....yellow, clear, smallish white head.
Taste...sharp acidic citrus, tart and a little refreshing.
Feel...light, crisp...medium carb.

Not bad, good summer beer. Some good qualities, but not the whole package.

Pours a darkish yellow. Nice head and lively carbonation. It made a big appearance at the local grocery store and I've been able to buy it pretty easily. Good mouthfeel from that carbonation and a nice bitterness to it that lets you know you have a beer in your glass. This will be a real summertime favorite at my house.

Bright light yellow color with white cap.

Aroma of sweet malt, caramel then floral spicy hops.

Flavor is caramel malt but not sweet, hops jump in almost at once and last to the finish. The hops are more spicy than floral and are about even with the malt for flavor The aftertaste shows just a bit more hop firmness and a slight touch of honey.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

A lot to like about this one though I was surprised at the perceived level of hop bitterness. Not necessarily a bad thing but a bit over the top.

Pours a crystal clear bright yellow with a thick white head that recedes quickly to a thin cap with decent lacing. The aroma is floral and European noble hops. Flavor follows the nose with a bit of honey and lemon as well. The feel is "crisp" well carbonated. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Looks a 7 on the SRM index, smells somewhat neutral, hops,wet crackers. Taste is a actually nice hoppiness with quality caramel malt finish. A strong hoppy pungent taste followed by nice creamy malt finish.Feels crisp and well carbonated. This is a great Pilsner type. This is one of the most "sessionable beers I have ever encountered in decades". My favorite German style Pils so far by a wide margin.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

L — Very slightly turbid straw body with a two-finger white head produced with gentle-moderate pour. Good retention and lacing
S — Wheat, skunk(?weird for a can), cat piss, lemon, doughy pilsner malts
T — Herbaceous/grassy hop, lemon, honey, faint coriander, metal
F — Crisp and dry. Medium mouthfeel, medium+ carb. Too bitter for a pils
O — Not sure if this is an old can or if there’s too many Noble hops added but this is not a smooth, easy drinking experience like pilsners should be

< 60/100
