The dry bitterness of classic pilsner makes this a perfect, pre-dinner drink. Although we borrowed the style from Bohemia, our pils is classsic Bavarian, made partially with barley we grow ourselves, a blend of fresh Hallertau and Tetnang hops and our unique St. Andreas mineral water. The vivacious color is reflective of the barley fields that surround our brewery. The head is light and thick and leaves a beautiful Bavarian lace on the empty glass. . In the mouth, our pils achives balance and roundness, without the hops overpowering the fruitiness of the malt.

Very blond beer with a small head. Weak hop and malt aroma. Very bitter dry hoppy taste. A good beer.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2004
MGC under a medium size medium lasting white head. Mild herbal hops aroma. Light slightly watery body. Very low sweetness, mild woody bitter hoppy flavours. Subtle and should not be rated after a dozen or so Belgian strong ales as we have just attempted to do.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2004
Very pale yellow, almost green color with a large, pillowy, cloudy and lacy head. Hoppy citrus aroma. Hoppy pils flavor. Quite carbonated, crisp, slicky and light-bodied palate. A nice and refreshing pils. Had this at a quite cold terrace, so should probably re-rate when warm enough.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2004
Draught at Cittie of Yorke (Sam Smith pub), Holborn, London. Similar to the lager, which I tried immediatly beforehand - though less fruity, and with more of a white spirit quality. Not outstanding: plain, but quite crisp. Some cider and malt (perversely). No aroma, no head, no lacing.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Pours a clear straw, very minimal head. Wet malty aroma, a bit of cardboard and some sour wine. . . Light apple flavour that turns sour on the back of the tongue. No real assemblence of hops, but not a horrible flavour.

On the one hand a lot of serious beer drinkers have a hard time taking pilsener seriously; on the other, they definitely should because there are examples that are very interesting and rewarding. Unfortunately...not this one. Hops definitely there, driving a wood cask-like, musty aroma, with a grassy finish. Rich, yellow color, attractive in its own way, and a lack of bitterness made it decent in the end, but still no cigar. (on tap, Ludwig's Garten, Philadelphia)

Head retention could be better. Flowery hoppy / bohemian nose. Fullbodied with relatively low carbonation. Tasty and clean.

a potent pils, points for potentcy...biting taste in the back of the throat leaves me thirsty for more, that's a good sign

Found this in the back of my parents fridge while visting. One of my brothers(who moved out 4 years ago) must have left it. I was suprised it still had a decent pssst upon opening. Poured a decent head which eventually disapated. Top part of bottle was ok but bottom was too cloudy to venture into. I poured rest. I'll have to find a fresh one someday.
