4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Overall a good example of modern German Pils: nice and clean, with moderate alcohol content and decent bitterness. This brewery makes a number of excellent products and their Pils is what you would expect from a full-bodied Bavarian lager.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Hoppy, apparently because it uses hop extract as well as hops. Pehaps a mix of Saaz and Hallertauer, but this is dripping with all the delights of stinky wet haylike pale malt in abundance and great hopping. Big back of the throat medicinal bitter drip at the finish. Slightly artificial, but in more of a european sense (not adjuncty, corny) - Whoa - loads of great softer bitterness at the end becuase of an abundance of yeastiness...mmmm...bottle-conditioning. Seek this one out!

Full and thick, this is not particularly dry or crisp. Hop aroma, but not much hop aftertaste.

Pale gold in color, very nice head with excellent lacing. Aroma is grainy, with cut grass and dried parsley coming through strongly. Full, rounded mouthfeel, bit of sweetness, floral hops, touch of bitterness. Maybe not as drying as some would care for, but quite full flavored and enjoyable.

Golden translucent, moderate head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malty sweet and full of noble hops. Flavor has the right bitterness for a pils,but has a slightly lingering sweetness. Bitter, but not dry finish. A very good pilsner.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500 ml. brown euro bottle with a freshness date on the back label, 01.01.05. This pilsener actually held up pretty well.
Poured a clear yellowish golden with a foamy white that settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
Aromas of sweet grains and biscuits, lemon honey, floral and spicy hops.
Medium carbonation and a crisp, smooth pilsener light bodied mouthfeel.
Delicious tasting, sweet honey breads, lemon grassy, peppery and spicy herbal hops and a dry grainy, spicy and lemon grassy finish, very good drinkability.
On a hot midwestern summer day this is highly quaffable, I would like to find a fresher bottle of this, I have the feeling it is even more tasty when you get it before it’s freshness date has expired. Purchased at the Friar Tuck in Springfield, Illinois.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This German Pilsner pours an orange gold color from a 500ml bottle. Huge sized white foamy head, long lasting with good lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy, touch of sweetness. A medium to full bodied pilsner. Malts are grainy and grassy, slightly sweet. Somewhat spicy hops. Smooth taste. Kind of full tasting for a pilsner, it lacks that crisp and clean dryness that one would expect of a pilsner, but it has a nice hop bite at the finish to compensate. Clean and refreshing. This is a nice Pilsner. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and slightly hoppy.

Lightly hazed light golden color. tall milky white head. Grassy hops with a pils malt backdrop. Had hoped for a more noble nose. Soft malt flavors abound. Very mild herbal hops and a nice light bite in the finish coupled with a light pale malt linger. The temperatures hit the 50s today and already I am looking forward to Pils season. If this is global warming, bring it on!
