I tried this on draft at Rivermarket Bar and Grill in Westchester, NY. It poured a clear golden with white head that left a nice lace. The scent had faint grain and grass notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with pilsner hop presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pilsner glass. Had a bright yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Middling lacing.

S: A decent, but not great, aroma of malt, hops, a grassy quality, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a bit of the grassy quality (less than expected), a ton of malt, lots of bitter hops (especially in the finish), a little honey, light citrus notes (lemon), and a bready quality as well. Kind of an uneven flavor for the most part. It's super malty up front, but the hops in the finish is quite jarring. Not bad, but a little shaky.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a lively finish. Light-bodied.

O: This beer has its good attributes, but it's a little unfocused. Worth a look, though.

A- Tallboy into a chalice with a pale golden straw hue and a frothy, foamy white head. Somewhat hazy, an American twist on the style. The cap rises to about a finger high with decent retention. A ring at the edges of the beer leaves spotty lacing.

S- The aroma is bready with a touch of honey and light crackers. Hops are floral and spicy with the lightest hint of lemon/citrus in the backdrop.

T- Grainier here than in the aroma as that note joins the bread, honey, light crackers from the aroma and a subtle sweetness. A spicy bitterness from the hops which also leave flowery, herbal and grassy notes. The sweetness grows just a bit more than expected.

MF- Fluffy and creamy light end body that is nowhere near thin or watery. A high level of carbonation and a bitter grip on the palate in the finish.

The cloudiness is not traditional but at the same time it doesn't really change the experience much. The aroma is well done but the flavor brings just a bit more sweetness than one might expect in the style as it tastes almost sugary in the late finish.

Can, no date:
Pours lightly golden, with barely a hint of very light haze in its body. The head was nice and white, but didn't hold its structure very long, and faded fairly quickly to a razor thin collar (if that thick). The non-lasting head is a real detraction, especailly with no lacing.

Nose is initially a yeasty bread - almost like a sourdough, but a dry, not too tangy sourdough. It's not bad the tangy"sourness" is light, and even better that it doesn't seem to last the whole beer. Crusty bread notes in general do last, however. Very light, indistinct fruit and grape leave or grass notes also exist. I might go up a notch in this category with my next can.

My initial sips also seemed to have that tang, but it seemed to wash off my palate fairly quickly - with none remaining at all by mid-glass. Hearty white bread, moderate yeast influence, and a dry grass to fruit leave bitter balancing notes, with perhaps just a few specks of orange zest. End up slightly bitter over most of my tongue, though the malt seems to hang on barely to the tip of my tongue.

I ended up finding this a fairly enjoyable beer. I'd wish for a little more heady of a brew, and wished I was getting a cleaner nose, but I can't complain about a moderately carbonated, fairly clean, refreshing beer.

A 16 oz Christmas present from my daughter of NYC beers that don't seem to make it to Ohio. Really like the color scheme on the can. Poured into a Nonic produced a large fluffy head that slowly dissipated leaving a bit of lacing over a slightly hazy dark gold color.

Pleasant slightly sweet Pilsner smell. Taste is slightly peppery bread with no intrusive hops. Mouthfeel is what I expect from a Pilsner. Solid beer. Well done, daughter.
