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.

Pours a fairly clear yellow, with soft foamy head.

Smell is bready and clean. Nice malt and some floral hops.

Tasty is nice and malty, clean and crisp. Soft bitterness, and some peppery hops.

Mouthfeel is medium and well carbonated.

Overall, a solid, clean and drinkable pilsner.

Chill haze. Slight sediment in suspension, which I wasn't crazy about for the style but damn this beer is an achievement. To me, this is a near perfect beer. Smells like weed. Crackery malt. Clean, ultimate crispiness levels. Total crusher. When you go to NYC, go to Other Half for a can release, for an IPA or two, but go to Threes to actually celebrate beer. Cheers.

12 oz can (yay!) dated 2/15/17. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 3F+ head with lots of lacing, good retention, cap and ring. Beer is a clear pale straw golden with visible carbonation bubbles.

S: Nice Pilsner malt, yeast, citrus, and floral. Quite nice.

T: Follows nose, generally speaking. Malty and citrusy, with nice yeasty and more malty taste as it develops. Good drying, nice and crisp.

F: Light bodied, moderately to strongly carbonated for good drying. Good construction, balance is pretty decent.

O: Very nice Pilsner.

Can purchased at Stoneyard Craft Beer Hall and Grill in Webster, NY.

This one pours a nice glowing and clear orange color, with a small head, and a good level of lacing.

Smells like everything I want a pilsner to smell like- crackery pilsner malt, dry grassy hops, slight minerally yeast, and something vaguely floral. It smells pretty great.

This has to be one of the best American made pilsners that I've ever had. It's certainly a good hop flavor to it, as a good pilsner should, but it's not overdone like most American pilsners. The grassy and dry hop flavors marries incredibly with with the crusty and crackery bready pilsner malt flavor- the flavor kind of reminds me of those water crackers. There's a very slight mineral flavor on the finish as well.

This has a very crisp mouthfeel, it's dry, clean, and light, with a good level of carbonation.

Threes should be commended for making a truly killer pilsner. They should also be commended for actually making it to style. It's a treat to get something like this here, as normally you would have to go to Germany to get something authentic like this. It's just so crunchy and so crispy. It's always nice to get reinvigorated in a style like this.
