From a 16oz can, dated 05/01/19. Served in a willi becher glass.

Pours a totally clear, super-pale straw-gold with two fingers of snowy white, whipped froth. Retention is just so-so-decent, leaving a thin fizzy cap and scattered lacings.

Aroma is mildly sweet and nutty, with dried flowers and straw.

Taste is thinly sweet and very mildly spicy, like diluted lemonade or barley tea. Dried hay stubble and a little spicy funk in the sinuses to finish.

Feel is clean but just a bit too sweet and slick to pass as ‘crisp,’ light bodied with fine, light carbonation.

Overall, an enjoyable enough, light-bodied lager. Not overly challenging on the palate, a pretty good, clean, easy-drinking pils but not one of Schilling’s finest.

From the 16 oz. can with a stamp that looks like 050119. Sampled on June 8, 2019.

The appearance is like an American Lager with its golden-yellow color, clear through and through, but with a quickly fizzling head.

Pleasant inviting aroma of sweet barley grain with a slight grassy or floral sensation behind that.

Light smooth mouthfeel.

It definitely brings out a sweet and barley malt character in the flavor with a low to no floral hop profile to finish. Mildly dry but overall crisp and clean.

Can from Candia Road.
Mostly clear light golden in color with a decent bubbly white head that persists. Bready crackery pilsner maltiness with just a touch of floral spicy hops. Really tasty lawnmower beer.

Can. Clear very pale gold with no head, fizzy like soda. Very light malt aroma with some grass. Medium light grassy honey sweetness with light herbal tea bitterness. Very light fizzy slick and watery. Nailed the American lager style. Not sure who'd pay $13 for a four-pack when they can get a 30-pack of Natty Light for that. Terrible and unnecessary.
