Yep. This is what a pilsner should be. Unfiltered, ample bitterness, good hoppiness. Served at a little warmer temp than I’d like, but that is about the only negative thing I can say about this beer. World Class within the style. Very nice job Das Bierhaus!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First a sampler than a full pour in a large ass footed pilsner glass. It is a completely full thick golden color, cannot see through it. Has a firm thick head on top. As the head fades a thick insulation-like foam sticks around and covers the surface. A pretty damn attractive beer. Aroma is a very thick lacto/milky-like maltiness and not just the standard white bread maltiness; thick, strong, original, and interesting. The flavor is similar but it is balanced by some zing from the hops. Has a long sweet, non-sugary aftertaste with a hint of non-citric lemon. It is very easy drinking despite having a thick, full body. It is a "big" pils without being the Americanized version of "big." I would go out of my way to drink this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent deep effervescent golden with a nicely-lacing stringy white head. Aroma of fresh, crisp noble hops and lightly sweet pale malt. Starts fairly full for the style with a good mild sweetness and great balance of fresh Saaz hops toward a crisp, very drinkable finish. Definitely one of the best pilsners I’ve had.

Sampler. Cloudy gold, nice lacing. Nice aroma of earthy hops with a bit of grains and lemon as well. Nice solid bitterness, but not too much. Excellent pilsner.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head--loving the unfiltered murkiness. Smell is light breadiness with an herbal hop aroma and a light honey sweetness. Taste is all barley, bread, and yeast up front, finishing with a light herbal grassiness. Maybe a bit too much grain, and feels a bit heavier than I’d like. However, this beer has a decent amount of heft while still being very drinkable. I feel like this beer would get better and better the more I’d have of it.

fruity and full of honey with a nice balanced hoppiness and touch of pepper on the tongue. moderate chewy body with some essence of caramel and vanilla and a bit of grass. low alkaline just barely there for balance. nice beer.
