Elm City Lager

12 oz can from Grassroots in Jacksonville, GA, USA.
The beer has a somewhat disturbingly, pale color and in terms of the hue looks a bit weak. Paradoxically, the head is resplendent – high, fluffy and full of sticky lace, it looks really good. Admittedly it is not really a classic looking Pilsner, nor is the head typical of the style but it looks OK.
Carbonation is quite high too.
This is a very, very sweet beer that I actually like. It does NOT deliver a classic, Noble or Saaz bite (which I would want if I was concerned about style), but it is very drinkable.
Having said all of that it seems like it is closer to a macro, adjunct lager than a classic Pils, but it does have some kind of strange appeal. Perhaps the can helps, I don’t know, but I bet this beer will not impress some folk. Although I like it, I would understand why other people didn’t fancy it much.
