(Sampled bottle): Lovely hoppy aroma (Saazer and Hallertau?), moderate head, distinct bitterness but not unpleasant (and I’m not a hardcore hophead), very refeshing. I’m sure it’s even better on tap. A decent pils!

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 Update: The first time I bought this one, I thought it was a little thin and a bit grainy, but somehow enormously drinkable (I finished a six over conversation with my father). It led me to believe that Pils in the more austere Rheinland style was perhaps better than I thought. Having always admired the Einbecker Maibock, I was shocked upon later purchases to find that the Pils weren't nere so grainy as I first thought--actually, there's a ton of sweet pale malt here, followed by flowery hops, then a really substantial hop bite to end it. I was astonished by how much the malt profile resembled the Maibock, though this one had a tiny bit of DMS (a bad flavor, perfectly placed here). Wow. What a tremendous Pils. Old: This is the pils that has made me reconsider the style. I have always thought of pils as a bit too austere, and in keeping with its North German heritage, a bit S&M--teasing and hinting at what it has and what it won't give you. This Saxon pils is certainly austere: very hoppy with light malt and a grainy/hoppy finish. But it is really something special.

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Hoppy, grassy aroma - a little bit skunky. Yellow with a small head. It is hoppy but weak with a light bitter finish. I enjoyed it a lot while reading the ’Weekly World News’ finding out, that ’Mexican Crater hides spacealien city’

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2002
Nothing spectacular here. Light straw color with a fluffy white diminishing head, minimal lace. Quite grainy and sharply hopped. Thin powdery mouthfeel. Lacks smoothness.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - MAY 16, 2002
Big head that gave off a slightly sulfury nose. Light gold color – I was hoping for something a little darker. A light malt character comes through, but the taste is mainly decent hoppyness. Smooth at first, then a bitter in the end and kinda dry. Goes with all kinds of food, particularly pizza and pub grub. Nice brew that is up there with Jever and Pils Urquell (-> see my reviews).

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (herbs), moderately malty (light bread, grain). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is heavily bitter. Light to medium body, dry and watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. Starts off nicely balanced, but the finish is quite bitter and fairly astringent. Still good for the style, nice aroma, but kind of harsh/rough.
