3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 multiple bottles at du sonne in bischberg. bright clear gold, perfectly formed rocky white head that seems to last forever. exceptionally intense and vibrant hallertau nose... spiced green hops, floral, zesty, doughy... the bitter, dry green bean and sweet sugar snap pea hop notes are incredible. the depth of this pils is unmatched - bright, effervescent, full, frothy body, perfectly crisp, exceptionally snappy and minerally, wonderfully crisp and refreshing. dust/minerals/granite, all there to breathe in and marvel at. this is a sorely unappreciated german pils.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours clear, pale yellow with a fluffy white head. Dry cereal, some light hay bitterness, floral notes, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Tasty finish, more cereal, biscuity pale malts, slight bitterness. Very enjoyable.

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
Light gold, gentle sparkle, thin head. Light hop aroma. Low-moderate bitterness with a crisp herbal hop character. Clean, flawless but not their most interesting offering.

nealblind (1287) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap Bamberg. Clear gold Amber. Aroma grapes grass punchy aroma with lots of promise. Grassy flavor is a slight let down but the brewer’s raw talent is clear. I just wish they used better hops.

jonas (6301) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2005
Hazy green golden color, low on visible carbioation, foamy white head. Bready malt and herbal hop aroma. Heavy on the straw malt for a pils, slight fruity dip in the middle before hard metallic herbal bittering hops are injected, pinecones present. Slick mouthfeel, long bitter aftertaste. Its brutal, but I like it for that.

pivnizub (9528) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle (bought at the brewery): Straw golden coloured, thin foamy layer, quite stable; aroma: shy floral hops mixed with sweet malt and some citrousy notes; sweetish-citrousy-bitter flavour, smooth MF; soft, but distinctive aromatic bitter-sweet-fruity finish, becoming drier and more bitter in the aftertaste. A pleasant one..............
