Jur (372) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
Can @ W Austin, TX. Clear gold, proper carbonation. Rounded, mild malt and modest bitter, like a proper Bohemian pilsner. Fresh and tasty, nothing like confection US lagers.

Very clear golden. Reminiscent of a bud light but good, if that makes sense. Flight at Bangers.

12oz can. Aroma is light malt with a little hops. Appearance is golden. Taste is a some malt with some hops as well. Could be refreshing during an Austin summer. Palate us a little hoppy, but ok. Overall, could see this as a perfect river beer, except for the price and the scarcity. Go Austin beer works! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holy shit. Can smell the hops as soon as I crack the can! A strong, pungent grassy, pissy, catty hop aroma. Drank from the can. Super quenching and perfectly balanced between bitter, hop flavor and just a touch of malt that keeps it from being obnoxious. Is this really made in the same state as the asstros and Lone Star. Great pilsner!

Pours a clear gold with no noticable head. Aroma of grass. Taste is light crisp flowers and grassy hops. Thin and crisp mouthfeel. Excellent hot texas day beer.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 > A super dank dry hopped blonde beer that may not even be the Pearl Snap Pils despite the canís label

[ Can ][ t0rin0 ][ 12oz ][ Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 4/26/14 ]
>> Pours a clear straw with soapy foam, soapy lace. High carbonation. Nose is super dank NZ style melon hops, definitely nontraditional for a German pils. Taste is plastic, concrete, harshly bitter. Toothpaste, concrete finish. Whatever was inside this can, I donít think it was their German pilsner...

>!< concrete, plastic, perhaps they mixed up their beer

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ Salty Sow Austin TX ][ $5 ][ Flute ][ 9.2.14 ]
>> Now this is actually Pearl Snap and not some experimental prototype batch. Brilliant gold pour with low foam. Nose is grainy, fresh, snappy pilsner malt. Taste is juicy and pilsner malty, great snappy pils with juicy malt body and grassy Noble hops. Great sourdough palate with mild lactic acid. Very good, would be in my fridge at all times if I lived in Austin.
