I have already enjoyed this beer, and it surprised me. I have never heard of Elder Pine. The beer is akin in style to Stella but much better. The beer is less than two months old, still fresh. The pour of the beer produced a creamy and foamy head with excellent retention. The white head left lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is SRM 4, pale gold color with amber hues. The beer is clear as a blue sky. The appearance of the beer is beautiful.

The initial aromas in the beer are sweet toasted malts, biscuit, and subtly floral. Nosing further in the glass, smell a touch of spicy hops, pears, and a hint of honey. The aromas in the beer are delicate but firm.

The flavors in the beer toasted malts, pears, honey, a light note of earth, a touch of spicy hops, toasted malts, yeast, biscuit, floral, a hint of orange, and bread crust.

The mouthfeel of the beer is carbonated, crisp, and clean.

The body of the beer is light, medium carbonation, and a light finish.

This beer is incredible! Only if Stella could taste this good. This beer hits on all the style points. There is not a bad thing to say about it. The beer is a tad sweet, but that is the only complaint. I honestly wish I had 24 more of these in my fridge for this weekend.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a shaker pint glass; there is a rush of froth that quickly settles into a hazy amber beneath a flimsy crown of foam. The nose is rather negligible, while there is a subtle whiff of grass. There is not much on the palate, thought the body is very crispy with absolutely no bitterness. Definitely, a session quaff for a hot day (like today). Not one the better lagers, but it is drinkable. I do like the Elder Pine cans.

Crystal clear, pale gold colored body; lots of gentle carbonation rising; one-finger thick head, dense and creamy and long lasting. Amazingingly fresh scents of apple and pear; very powerful. The taste mirrors the aroma; mildly sweet and juicy; minimal hop bitterness; clean. Medium-light body; crisp and refreshing; sweet overall but very much reined in; slight dryness at the finish.

This is quite the refreshing lagerbier. Makes me wish I had more on hand. It's very well done and makes for an excellent warm weather thirst quencher.

Crisp European lager, very refreshing. No date printed on can. Pours a clearer golden color with a little fluffy white head and minimal spotty lingering lacing. Smells of crisp grain, corn, malt, vanilla, bread, a little faint fruity and floral hops. Tastes similarly, great flavor and depth for a low-ABV lager, very refreshing. Smooth crisp mild mouthfeel, good carbonation retention. Hits the spot on a hot summer's day by the grill.

Light crisp and fluffy, an exemplary domestic of an “old-world” style. Nothing overly gimmicky, no overt hoppiness. Just a fine bread and biscuit palette and a nice yeast tang to boot.
