Notes: It’s on. It’s time to get started. To crank things up. To get loud.

That thumping you feel in your chest isn’t your imagination. It’s your heart. It’s life. It’s the rockin’ tunes. It’s your inspiration wanting to break out. It ain’t gonna sit there waiting, so mutherf**king grab it.

This is a Collaboration in the truest sense between two entities that were born on the fringes. We’ve navigated life from a different perspective. We imagined things differently from what they were, and set about using our art to change the world according to our vision. We started being misunderstood by many, and loved by few. Today that’s the same...but that ‘few’ has become ‘more.’ A LOT more. That’s you, my friend, and we’re stoked you’re with us on this journey.

The day is winding down. It’s time to get started. No more waiting. It’s time to get LOUD. It’s time to Enter Night.

This is a 160z. can with a slow pour into a 20oz. weizen glass. This looks about perfect, a slightly hazy, straw yellow pils, with three fingers of pure white foam. The head slowly settled back to a one finger lumpy white lid with a solid wall of lacing left behind. The carbonation is better than medium in my estimation.

The nose is a sweet malty aroma with hints of citrus.

The flavor shadows the smell. There is a sweetness up front with citrus, followed by a bitter slightly dry finish. This is not what I expect from a Pils.

This is good, but it is not what I expect from a Pils. This drinks more like an IPA or a Pale Ale. There has got to be a style that would be more fitting for this brew!

Poured into a Lervig large tumbler.

A: Body is yellow and crystalline, showing a 2mm thick white head that presents a good retention to the sides of the glass. In the middle, not so much. Yet, looks perfect for a drinkable pilsner.
S: The aroma is pretty much malty, showing some sweetness and also presents a small hoppy tone, more into the citrusy ones than the hops I'd be looking for on a pilsner. Yet, smells pretty good, something like an Imperial Pale Lager, with strong malts and strong hops.
T: Taste starts off with a big sweetness incoming from the malts used, then moving on to a grapefruit to tangerine like citrus-ness that pretty well balanced and mild into the perspective of a pilsner - it's not too much.
M: Body is low. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Bitterness is medium to medium high.
O: For a German Pils with a twist, this is pretty drinkable.

Pours a clear pale straw color with a nice white fluffy head.
Notes of lemon grass and a slightly bitter finish.
I really like this one.

I’ve had better Pilsners but the back story on this is hard to beat. It feels light, but drinks heavy. It has an off taste that I don’t enjoy but it’s drinkable.

16oz can served in a pint can-shaped glass. Canned 06-25-20.

Pours clear light yellow with a short flash of head that collapses to a moderately thick ring and a thin but broad island. Don't see much carbonation. Smell is grassy, overall quite mild, slight lemon, a little lager yeast but not much.

Taste is more in-your-face. Lots of grassy bitter hops, maybe too much for the style. Quite bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium-ish. Overall, it's pretty good, but doesn't seem stellar.

golden amber with very good clarity and white head with lasting retention lace sticks and bead is fine
the aroma is both citrus and floral with a light orange rind aspect and subtle malt odor
the feel and flavor is a mix of bitter with subtle astringency and mild earthy hop up front with slight spicy texture and dry malt with a medium high carbonation level. The citrus returns in the finish which is both dry and long.
This is a definitively West Coast American take on the style with bright assertive hop flavors and elevated bitterness that lingers.
I really enjoyed this interpretation yet it is a little less drinkable to me than a traditional example with noble focus

Pours a golden yellow color with a minimal head that lasts quite a while. No discernable aroma. Tastes of citrus and hops. Finished with a decent hoppy bitterness; noticeable but not overwhelming. Opened my can after cutting the grass so I can honestly say it's a good working outside beer.

16 oz. can that pours clear golden color with a decent white foamy head that sticks to my glass. Strong hop aroma, medium bodied. Tasty citrus - cheese hop flavor, very aggressive. Nice crisp mouthfeel, finishes clean and bitter.

Picked up a single from the Kings Beer & Wine cooler 1-16-20 for $3.69. Canned on 11-25-19; best by 4-23-20; consumed 4-19-20. Cold stored since purchase.

Beer poured golden with a decent white head that has some hang time.

Nose is malty with no characteristic i would expect from the style. A tad fruity from the hops.

Taste has a touch of breadiness and gets quickly overwhelmed by the alpha hops used, some grapefruit, somewhat herbal. Finishes very bitter for the style; 9/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall, from a style perspective, a bit disappointing, but not a bad beer. If you like in your face hops this beer is for you.

Stone's specialty is pale ale. This is their "pilsner"... right... It's decent at best as long as it's cold. A solid 3 in my book. It's got some real profile, but certain flavors are just too pronouced. I think a bourbon ale would be more Metallica's style but hey, that's just me. Always room for improvement, hope to see it \m/ \m/

Clear yellow colored beer with a tall white head.

Smells extremely hoppy. Probably another Stone over hopped beer. Smells of willow tree and aspirin. Some scorched sugar malt scent.

Starts out bitter with a burned sugar taste. Some sweetness after the initial shock of the bitterness. Nobel hop is in this but it is way over hopped.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall ANOTHER over hopped beer from Stone. I can't recommend this stuff.

Poured from a tall can into a tall tap glass.

Pours nearly crystal-clear and medium gold with decent head that subsides quickly but gives way to decent lacing. Rising but not streaming carbonation.

Floral and grassy aromas prominent with honey, clean-malt grain, and bready notes.

The brew has a touch of honey-sweet malt up front but gives way to floral, grassy, and then citrusy hops. White pepper, lemongrass and woody apple flavors as well. Somewhat overhopped for the style.

The brew has a nice medium-light body with a somewhat drying but not crisp (and that's fine) finish.

A solid pils, even if it is a bit hoppy for the style.

This is good enough to drink, but not to buy again. It tastes more like an IPL, which I guess I should have expected from a Stone pilsner. Unfortunately, it's not very well balanced. It's bitter for the sake of bitterness, not for a complete flavor profile.
