Aroma of the hayfields. Rather sweet, like alfalfa cookies. Tastes of corn and grain with something herbal and a modest bitteress. From the 16 oz can purchased on the West Coast, not knowing where the brewery was. At least they seem to make their own beers, unlike the mega-distribution oddities we see out here.

Best feature is the highly sudsy mouthfeel with loads of foam in the Old Fashioned glass. But overall it's not a bad quaff. Aftertaste is increasingly bitter, however.

Clear yellow straw with two fingers of foamy, off-white head. Good retention and spotty lacing.

Sulfur and a little sweet cornbread in the nose.

A certain cakeiness shows up front in the taste followed by hint of tropical juice sweetness followed by a moderately bitter and touch of sulfur again finish.

Medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

A well made beer. A bit sweeter than I expected, but with decent balance to keep everything in an appropriate range. Learning what a racist, anti-Semitic jackass the owner of the brewery is has ruined the experience for me though.

Aggressive pour yields two solid fingers of fluffy white head. Body is your classic pale pilsner yellow. A fairly solid ring of lace forms as the head subsides. Smells super clean with grassy notes. Lightly floral hops and biscuit-y malt. I want to say there's a light citrus note but it could be my brain connecting dots that just aren't there. When you've been drinking as hard as I have for as long as I have you learn not to trust yourself. I get that citrus note on the tongue too, though, so I can't be that big a dummy. Fresh green herbal notes round things out. It's pleasant if unspectacular. Mouthfeel is ever-so-slightly more robust than most pilsners and I'm appreciative of that. It's not, like, chewy or anything but it has solid heft. Medium-high carbonation could be dialed back half a notch, but that's a nitpick as this drinks incredibly well. Very, very solid pils.

Pours a clear golden color. Moderately effervescent. Thin white sudsy head.

Aroma has notes of grains, hay, lightly sweet, touch of grassy hops.

Taste follows the nose - hay, light grainy notes, dried grass, honey, lightly spicy hops on the back end.

Feel is light, crisp, easy drinking. Moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice easy drinking pilsner.

Looks like a beer. Smells like a beer. Tastes like a beer. Finishes like a beer. Feels like a beer. Of the pilsner variety.

16oz can.
L: Clear, bright yellow with no visible carbonation, a thin head and spotty lacing.
S: Fresh and grassy.
T: Crisp, lemon juice & straw. Some bitterness develops slowly.
F: Medium/light body, some slick and a short, dry finish. Low carbonation.
O: A green, citrusy, pilsener-style, American lager. A thirst-quencher, for sure, but lacking the spicy hop bite I expect from this style. Probably better on a warm summer day than two days after Christmas.

On tap at Monk's Cafe in Philly.

A - Light gold color with perfect clarity and vibrant carbonation and a delicate layer of foam hanging out on top.

S - Crisp crackery malt with a light citrus and delicate floral aroma over top. Dry on the nose.

T - Nice blend of floral, light citrus, some peppery notes, and crackery malt. Nice lingering floral and citrus on the palate.

M - Medium body with gentle carbonation.

O - This is a really solid, dry, crisp Pils worth checking out.

16oz can served in a footed pilsner. Dated 08-26-21. Bought it in NYC and shipped it home.

Pours clear golden yellow with a good sized head. Fades to a bunch of stiff peaks and clumpy/spotty lacing. Smell is nice and grainy, hay, moderate floral sweetness, maybe a hint of grassy bitterness.

Taste is similar but different balance. Floral sweetness on top of the grain, grassy bitterness more clear.

Mouthfeel is light, clean, crisp. This is a nice, refreshing beer.

PKG: 08/19/21 on bottom right of label. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Clear gold hue with 1-2 fingers of foamy white head with decent retention and ample lacing.

S: Great German pils aromas of breast, cereal grain pils malt with grassy, light lemon and clean with no esters

T: Flavor just about matches the aroma with more general graininess and a slightly sweeter pils maltiness. Hops are lemony and herbal with light spiciness. Very light appropriate sulfur note in the aftertaste. Clean without yeast character and low-moderate bitterness. I wish it had a brighter hop presence with more bitterness to give a more crisp character.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation and dry finish.

O: A nice pilsner beer from Threes.

I picked up a 16 oz can of this in a local beer store a few months ago, and its been in my fridge since then. Canned on 9/3/2020. Probably still just fine. Im sampling in my .5L dimple mug.
the beer pours a slightly cloudy golden straw color with fluffy bleached white head of 2 cm foaming up. this foams gradually fades to a rocky surface layer and some dense clingy edging. A little scattered lattice when I take a sip or swirl my glass.
Aroma on this beer is some grainy husky malt a bit of a floral hop note, and a little bit of lemon. Balanced nose.
First sip reveals a light body with smooth texture and fine prickly carbonation.
Flavor is some husky malt a bit of light sweetness and then finishes with some grassy and black tea bitterness. the bite is drying and lingers a bit after each sip.
Beer is good, maybe this is older than I should be drinking, 9 months doesnt seem excessive, but the beer is fine, not as great as I expected from the brewery 'hype'.
Still worth drinking if you like pilsners.
