Had this with dinner at a restraunt in Phoenix, AZ where my dada and I are currently on vacation. Served to me in a standard pint glass, this beer is a clear, medium golden color with a nice, fluffy white head that is anout2/3 of an inch when first served to me. Sets to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with some nice cluster swirls of foam. Decent lacing. Crisp malty aromas and a nice hint of hops as well. Has a good crisp, malty flavor with some sweetness along with a hint of peppery spice that gives way to a hint of hops. Has a crisp, slightly prickly, smooth medium to full bodies mouthfeel an moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish and is easy to drink the way a beer like this ought to be. A very enjoyable beer all around.

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. can into a pint glass. CANNED ON 04/01/15.

Look: Pours a pale yellow pilsner body with a decent bright white head. A lot of carbonation - attractive beer!

Smell: Grassy, lemony Euro hops. Metallic aroma.

Taste: Bready, biscuity pilsner malt with just a hint of bitter Euro hop flavor.

Feel: Very crisp and very light. Almost watery body.

Overall: A delicious beer that hits all of the classic German Pilsner notes. Very light, very refreshing, but for the cost, I'll stick with SN Nooner pilsner.

Served On-Tap, and tasted from 12oz can, updating notes.

A — Pours a clear and bright pale yellow. Stark white colored head that leaves really pretty consistent lacing.

S — Smells bitter and piney, as well as some typical Pilsner malts, grains, and yeast, very bright and fresh.

T — Nice clean and crisp notes of pine, bitter and crisp Pislner malts and grains, bit of a mild approach, though there is a nice extra bit of bitterness from the extra hops.

M — Light in body, clean and fresh. Ample carbonation and easy drinking.

O — Great overall, nicely bitter and fresh.

Good clarity and lacing. Floral, grassy, citrus aroma. Very fresh with bright hop tones. Mildly sweet. Crisp and refreshing. Could drink this all summer long.

From a can. I like that I can now get Firestone's beer in cans. Poured into a pint glass.

Fizzy and Yellow. Looks like Rolling Rock, or Bud. No Lacing, head dissipates quickly.

A bit of a hoppy smell upon opening the can. But the smell is lost halfway through the beer.

The taste has that nasty part of the cheap European Pilsners that I've come to dislike. The hoppy flavors have that nasty bite that not-so-good IPAs sometimes present.

Sticky feel, like some of the Octoberfests, that I don't care for.

Overall. Not my thing at all.

I have loved everything else that i have ever had from Firestone. This is disappointing.
