Having spent the past week CANmitted to only drinking AmeriCAN CANned beers in support of (ISO) the 4th of July & then getting on a brewery horizontal kick, it is time to begin branching out again. I have plenty more to keep The CANQuest (tm) going strong!

From the CAN: "Nicht Lang Schnacken. Kopf In Nacken!"; "Stop Talking. Start Drinking!"

Oooh, back to another "1 Pint [CAN of] German Style Pilsner"! I love the loud Crack! when opening the vent on these CANs & this was no exception. I beCAN a slow, gentle C-Line Glug since the sheer volume alone was more than I wanted to deal with as a potential mess. It puffed up beautifully to form two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with great retention. Color was an oh-so-slightly-hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose had a very pleasant bready maltiness, not as honeyed as the previous ones, but still very bready with a light grassy hoppiness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, about on par for the style. The taste was MUCH more mellow than the previous ones! Here, the malts were subdued & the hops were more grassy than hay-like, very soft, very rounded & highly quaffable. Leave it to a Lancaster Co., PA brewery to nail it! Our Pennsylvania Dutch (Deutch) heritage almost dictates that if you are going to brew here, you had best know how to make Lager-style beers. We have been Lager-slurpers since the creation of our county between Lager beers & pretzels, we are seCANd to none! I am so enamored of this beer right now … It is perfect for a hot, humid Summer's day & I CAN easily envision drinking these in quantity. Finish was semi-dry, just the way I prefer a GER Pils to be. Semi-sweet is also allowable in the style, but my preference is semi-dry. Fully dry & I question whether it should not have been a Czech Pils. YMMV.

Look- pours crystal clear pale gold with a billowing head that settles to about 1/2 finger

Aroma- begins with a somewhat sweet light bready note followed closely by spicy and grassy hops

Taste- follows the nose w/the same malt and hop qualities, along with a firm hop bitterness. The grassy notes also have a pleasant subtle fruitiness to them, an almost grape-like quality, that I really enjoyed. The spicy hops sort of dance around in the background but are definitely noticeable.

Feel- light bodied with medium carb and a dry bitter finish

Overall- solid take in a German-style Pilsner with the aforementioned unique subtle fruity quality to it that really enhanced the drinking experience and made me want more and more.
