Certainly better than many of the macrobrewes pils coming out of Europe; Stella, becks and Heineken.
Well balanced and refreshing

A thanks to the prince of pilsener, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. ca. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of biscuit malts, light grains. Taste is biscuit malts, some lemons, light grains. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer.

And now, the aftermath of the Fourth of CANuly! I had laden my reefer with CANs that day, not really expecting to run through all of them, but more as a stopgap from running out before the day was over. The result is that now, I have a buncha cold CANs that I do not want to simply pull out & have get warm again. Ah, the trials & travails of The CANQuest (tm)!

From the CAN: "Crisp*Easy*Refreshing"; "Pilsner-Hybrid Beer"; "Ohio Craft Beer"; "Malts[:] Pilsen[,] Munich II[,] Vienna[;] Hops[:] Saaz[,] Galena[;] Yeast[:] San Diego Super"; "Fresh CLE Beer".

The Crack! revealed a brimful craft CAN, so I celebrated with an inverted Glug, or as much of one as I could muster without a messy overflow. This created two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with good retention. Color was Pale-Straw (SRM = 1 - 2) with NE-quality clarity. Nose smelled just like what I would expect in the style - a big biscuity malt presence underlain by grassy, hay-like hops. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, right for the style, just nothing to get wound up about. Taste was on the sweetish side with the biscuity-bready malts at the forefront, underlain by the grassiness of the hops. Finish was semi-dry, very refreshing on a hot, humid summer's day. Hello, Cleveland!

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Blonde. Good clarity. Light carbonation.

Nose
Cracker, graham cracker, and biscuit.

Taste
Cracker, biscuit, and graham cracker. Light leafy hop aroma.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, clean, and off-dry.

Overall
It's a great Vienna Lager, but a shitty "Palesner." Maybe my can was just old...

I bought a 6pck of this from the beer store around the corner. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of Saaz hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. Good biscuit base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

12 ounce can into lager glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit yeasty/fruity but not overwhelming. Flavors of lemon, pear, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, lightly toasted bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Fairly clean on lager flavors; a bit yeasty/fruity, but not overwhelming. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, clean, and fairly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice German pilsener style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. Not as flavorful or clean on lagering as others I’ve had, but hits all the style notes really well. A nicely enjoyable offering.
