Happy New CANned Modern Twin Peak Evil Times Beer Sunday (Week 744), Round 2! It's not quite Noon here in Lancaster, PA but it's gotta be Happy Hour somewhere, right? I know I'm getting happier as the day goes along. I have the IIHF World Championship (Bronze medal game) on NHL Network to satiate my hockey jones & life is good. Plus, The CANQuest (tm) is getting a good workout.

From the CAN: "A crushable Pilsner"; "Local sourcing[,] Clean and crisp[,] Certified organic"; "The best ingredients in beer".

One of my favorite non-Ale styles is Pilsners & so when I Crack!ed this one open, I was anxious for a taste! I quickly beCAN a C-Line Glug into the awaiting Pilsner glass. The beer quickly rose up to form two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose reminded me of Bud Light Lime, but without all of the nasty adjuncts. This smelled like a lime had been squeezed into a MexiCAN lager for my Summer enjoyment. Yum! Mouthfeel was medium, on par for the style. Wow, I was NOT prepared for the intensity of the lime in this one! The CAN also read: "Brewed and flavored with organic lime" & they were not kidding! This was far better than that D9 Key Lime Pie as long as you are into lime. Man, this was really intense! I was really happy with it, but I also realize that this may not be for everybody. Yeah, it might be a Pilsner-style Lager at its base, but it was really a vehicle for lime. It was crisp, dry and refreshing and the lime was a nice addition to the equation. More, please! YMMV.

A: Pours a yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Some lime up front along with bready malt and a touch of grain

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the lime and bready malt and then picks up some grainy notes towards the end

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid pilsner that has a nice lime addition. Almost like a craft Bud Light Lime. Super drinkable. Worth trying out
