This is one I have had many times while visiting family on the island but somehow never reviewed. The color is a healthy copper without much of a head. Nose is barely there.

The flavor is marked by biscuit notes, floral hops with a touch of pepper, and a dry, nutty character. Maltier and darker than most of the style. Kind of a hard ranking, since I find this clean and drinkable, but a bit off style.

Bought a 6 pack of cans - 9/27/2016 on bottom of can (drank them middle of December, 2016). Biggest complaint, the label on the can had a thick seam right where your mouth goes. Was very annoying. Seemed like a very low quality canning process.

Beer was average at best, nothing special about it. Just a pilsner, tasted a bit like an old can of Budweiser.

Pours a deep amber color with a one inch beige head that left a little lacing. Smells and tastes of lightly roasted malts, a slight nuttiness, floral notes and a hint of hops and spice. Quite malty for a pilsner, almost more of a lager. Well carbonated, goes down quite smoothly.

12 oz can with 6/22/16 on the bottom, so about 3 1/2 months in the can..not super fresh, but not terrible.

Pours hazed medium amber, with a lasting medium khaki cap, and leaving some moderate bits and stands of lacing on the glass.

Nutty, malty nose

Tasty brew, again I get some nuttyness and maple malts, hops on the back end to dry things up enough.

Nothing amazing, but this is a respectable sessioner on the malty side of the spectrum. Worth a try, nice fall beer and probably a good choice to try out some newbies with. Also likely would go great with some BBQ chicken with all the fixins.

More Amber than typical Pils. Light and crisp. Good in summer with salad or fish.
