COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Plenty of hops - still smooth, incredible light color and still a 5% beer with a wonderful bloom.

Bottle. Pours a medium golden color. Grainy, slightly sour aroma. Flavor is quite grain with a bit of sourness and maybe a hint of malts.

Draft - I found this beer to be well done. Nice malty flavor, crisp finish. Perfectly hoppy. Excellent beer in the German style.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Yellow to orange with quickly dissapating foam, though convincing looking initially. Nice noble hop and bready malt aroma, pretty smooth with a nice balance of czech like maltiness and bavarian hoppiness. Perfectly serviceable pils.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2005
This had the skunkish smell of a pilsener. Yellow with a white head to it. Smooth taste with a slightly harsh aftertaste. This beer was pretty good. I had it with pretzels and it gave me a hellacious case of the hiccups.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 27, 2004
bottle. honey golden, good sized head of very fine bubbles with decent lacing overall. Nose is yeasty, malty wih the fresh aroma of noble hops springing out of the glass! The flavor is balanced, with some bread like flavor and a hint of banana, offset with just the right hop bitterness. Finish is clean, mid-dry and a slightly bitter edge on the tail end. Jurgen Knoller (the brewer) brags uo this beer something fierce on his site, and although this isn’t the best Pilsner on "either side of the Atlantic," it IS pretty damn good.

badgerben (4405) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Golden color with a thin head. Pretty strong aroma of Saaz hops and honey. Tasted very much the same: honey and hops. Eh, not the worst pils out there.

presario (4642) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
Cloudy haze and a few yeast particles. Very thiin head on orange-yellow liquid. Yeast and a light mellon aroma. Zesty hop flavour and yeast, a different type of pilsener. Fruity finish. In a blind taste I might think this was an American Wheat. Refreshing and zesty.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Not a lot of aroma, looks like a pilsner, not a hugh head either. Sweet malt up front with just a hint of hop to it. Nice clean finish.

Looks like Bud, really. Similar color, and carbonation. That's not so bad, I didn't say it tasted like bud. Smells like lots of malt, reminds me of sweet dough, and resin. I'll be damned if i can find "plenty of hops," although it is a touch bitter. More tangy, like bad lunchmeat. Still, very cold bad ham can be refreshing on a hot day.
