A thanks to the genius behind the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, grassy, hops, lemons. Taste is identical to the aroma, the same four elements are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but I didn't expect this much lemons to be found in this style.

L: very light yellow color with light carbonation but two finger head
S: Strong hops upfront with a bit of mellowness in the back
T: wow, surprising nice, the hops are not as butter as smell give off and the mellowness comes through perfectly
F: very light feel of creaminess around the edges lingers as the taste is dissipating
O: I found this surprisingly enjoyable. Very well done!

I want to get in (at least) one new BEER on New Beer Sunday (Week 731) since the bulk of the day was spent with Kvasses. I'm still on a bit of a sugar rush & I didn't feel like going big at this point. I usually like what comes to us from Vault B.C. in Yardley & I really like that they embraced CANs from the outset. This will have the added benefit of furthering The CANQuest (tm), which is always a nice thing.

From the CAN: "Unfiltered American Style Pilsner Beer".

I Crack!ed open the vent & beCAN a slow, gentle C-Line Glug into the awaiting glass. I did this because although it may be labeled as "Unfiltered", I have a preference for clarity whenever possible. It foamed up fairly quickly to form just over two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head that resembled meringue or whipped cream above lemon filling. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity, proving my point. Nose had a beautiful freshly-mown grass/recently-cut hay scent along with a nice biscuitiness that set my mouth to watering. Mouthfeel was medium, about on par for the style. The taste had an unexpectedly citrusy bitterness, almost like lemon and grapefruit pith. Still, if you think that I am going to CANplain about bitterness in beer, then you really don't know me very well. I will take any bitterness over sweet any day of any week! I live for bitter. Plus, the biscuit malt also made for a very pleasant interlude. I CAN easily envision filling a cooler with CANs of this for a beach outing this summer. Finish was crisp, clean & dry, just the way I like 'em. YMMV.

A: Sudsy dull white head quickly dissipates while a barley-bee honeycomb colored head sits in the vessel with a neat clarity. A scarce amount of carbonation provides a calming presence.

S: Spicy nose, fresh lemon, fresh wet grains, with a background of soft freshly cut orange peel. Damp citrus fruit, honey-orange sweetness along with some moist breadiness. A generally good sense of awareness. Some sweet honey suckle rounds things out.

T: The flavor brings a sense of spicy Saaz hops, along with some sweet oranges, and honey breadiness. Citrusy grapefruit, with a distinct yeasty lager bite. Floral and honey suckles, musky fruit, perhaps tropical essence. Finishes with some spicy oranges, tingering on the swallow.

M: Bready malt base provides a good and full mouthful, thick and creamy in substance. Silent carbonation.

O: Big and bready malt base adds a backbone to a spicy Americanized pilsner offering. Musky tropical fruit, spicy hops, makes for a good summer time drinking experience. Favorable upon first impression. Spicy hopped pilsner.

Hot damn this is a nice pils. Not sure why its classified as a Czech pils here. If it had to be tied to an EU variant, it is straight up German. No diacetyl what so ever, well attenuated, crispy, nobel hop forward, and well carbed. Golden pale yellow, light haze, with excellent head retention, and Saaz for days.

The SEPA region is blessed with a number of excellent lager brewers—guess I gotta put Vault on that list now with this gem.

And not that it has any bearing on the beer whatsoever, but the packaging was very well done for these cans.

Very slightly cloudy straw with a dense white head. Head retains well, dropping to a stable thin cap and leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is biscuity malt and lemon. Taste is similar. Crisp, clean finish with a touch of bitterness.

Acquired can in a trade - my first opportunity to try a product from Vault Brewing Co. Overall, I was definitely impressed with this version of a Czech Pilsner - medium body and very refreshing. Wish I had acquired more than one can.

Clear, golden hued body; decent carbonation; thick, creamy, sticky, white head. Cracker scent to the aroma; a bit grassy. Light cereal grain flavor; bread crust; clean with a fine hop bitterness to balance the malt base. Medium body; a bit coarse on the palate; crisp with a bit of subtle warmth to things.

A solid pilsner, balanced and refreshing.

Hazed light straw with a thick bright white head that eventually settled into a nice crown and left decent lacing. Has a Euro Lager aroma. Strong sulfur and firmly bitter backend. Medium bodied for the style with strong carbonation. It's okay.
