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 Pils so far by a wide margin.

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

On tap at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph. Pours a golden effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

12 ounce can poured into pint glass

Pours a pale straw yellow color with a bright white creamy head, decent amount of retention and lacing, looks a bit thinner than other German Pilsners I've tasted. Lots of aroma, floral hop notes with a touch of spice, bready malts, hay, lemon, grass, smells very promising. Floral and spice hop notes are strong throughout along with some honey and lemon, moderate amount of bitterness for a pilsner, finish is bright, crisp, and clean, very nice. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation and a crisp clean finish.

Really drinkable beer that I would crush outside while smoking or grilling or just doing some yard work, lots of flavor, easy drinkability, and a great mouthfeel that's easy on the palate.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that subsides to a cap a few bubbles deep. The smell is of bready malt with a hint of floral hops. The taste starts with sweet malt, melding with floral hops to give flavors of honey and white bread. It ends crisp with a lingering hop bitterness.

For some reason I had never tried this beer before, and it immediately jumped into my top pilsners. Maybe slightly aggressive on the hops that can give a slight tang on the finish that I am not fond of, but otherwise an exemplary Pilsner in my book.

Bow wow wow yippe yo yippe yah The Crisp has me feelin' it every single day! Like a Roger Clemons fastball, this bad sucker pops! Waboom! In your grill! Just straight glorious grain and a sweet fruitiness for dayz. And unlike Clemons fast ball, The Crisp isn't artificially enhanced.

He gone!
