I've got to say that I was nearly blown away by this unexpected delight. Crystal clear and gold, into my glass with a great head, but minimal lacing. The best thing about this was the palate - I was expecting thin, but what I got was so thick, rich and creamy - the malts were bready and only slightly sweet. Hop presence was moderate - a bit of pepper and a nice dry finish. I ended up steaming some chicken sausage in some of this - great!

Had this on tap @ the Man of Kent Pub in Hoosic NY. Was a fresh keg. Good fresh hop aroma. Flavor had a slight metallic off note, but other than that, excellent. Very good find if you can get it fresh.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Clear golden color, minimal head, strong flowery (skunky, beware the green bottle!) aroma, full-bodied Pils, nice bitterness. Finish is dry. Decent Pils.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2003 Ugh. Blonde in color with nice head, but that's where the compliments end. Crisp and a bit bitter with some metallic/medicinal flavors. Great yeasty aroma, though.

Blonde-gold in color with a large creamy and frothy head that eventually breaks up into rather unappealing chunky islands. A funneled pilsner aroma with a feint malt presence and a flavor that is a tad skunky with some malting as well give this beer some depth. It is an okay german pilsner--but as my rating should attest, I think little of this style.

Nothing but bitterness. Nearly impossible to get rid of that nasty taste. Nice to look at, though.

Sigmund (6285) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2002
(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!

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.

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’

clear golden colour, fine head, strong herbal aroma, full-bodied with a long dry bitterness
