COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Einhorn Spezial Pilsner is a North German style, where pilsners are tradionally more bitter than in the rest of the country. It is a full-bodied, golden-colored craft beer and has 5% ABV. It contains high-quality aroma hops from the Tettnang region in Germany, a small town near Lake Constance on the Austrian border. The fruity Perle hops are from the Hallertau region, one of the finest hop growing regions in the world.

bottle from saarlander. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a massive chunky white head that takes some time to dissipate. Lacing mind need a chisle to remove. Aroma has hay, cracker, some perfumey florals. Taste is sweet with a touch of bittering hops. Maybe a little sweeter than I’d like, but its still easy to drink. With temps starting to close in on 100 degrees, it’s a welcome beer.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 31, 2011
31-Jan-11 (12-oz bottle: Purchased 03-Nov-10 for $1.39 at Total Wine & More in Tustin, CA) This highly over-carbonated beer pours a volcanic eruption of foam, no matter how carefully I try to pour the beer. The head covering the cloudy, golden-yellow beer is comprised of huge bubbles that pop rapidly, deflating the foamy head quickly and in rocky fashion. The nose is lemony, cobwebby, and musty, with a bready, grainy malt backing, some wet hay and sour dough, and a trace of vinegar. On the palate, the bready malt base is lightly sweet and is delicately balanced by lemony, grassy hops. The beer is modestly spicy, slightly tart, and a bit cobwebby in flavor. Weight is light-plus, the mouthfeel is dry, dusty, and slightly acidic, and the high level of carbonation is expansive in the mouth. Chunks of foam stick to the glass. Overall, there are too many flaws to get past. The flavor is okay, but the nose is a bit off-putting. 0 for 2 for this brewery.

Bottle. The pour is all white head. 90% of a pint glass was foam with an angled pour. Beneath is a chill hazed (this isn’t a Kellerbier?) golden body. Aromas of spicy, fruity, hop notes. Dry and grainy with a bit of lemon peel. Some soap. Flavors of lemon, lemon peel, dry grain and a bit grassy. There is a somewhat noticeable acidic note. Lively bubbles (as expected from the head), cover what I expect would be a very thin body. Hard to tell when the carbonation is so harsh.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
12oz bottle, no date--gusher! My pants and carpet are angry. Clear medium golden with lots of dark tiny suspended sediment and a one finger white head, fair retention. Lemon infected acidity, sulfur, corn, and biscuits are the aroma. Flavor pulls back on the lemon a bit, and adds leather--in the aged barleywine or aged brett beer--and finishes with a dirty earthy bitterness, peaking at a 3. Moderate carbonation with a thin watery body. This sucked, but I liked the unintentional leather infection thing.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2010 ****UPDATE**** Got a fresh bottle and cracked it open for another taste of this brew. Thanks go out to Doug Martin for going out of his way to provide OUTSTANDING customer service. Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. While none of the aromas smack you in the face, notes of honey and malts are present. Tasting this pils presents a crisp, grassy, honey flavor with a light bitter dry finish. Light bodied, easy to drink, and refreshing, exactly what a pilsner should be.

Sampled on 12/12/2009. This pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Large, huge, sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is cereal, wheat, malt and crisp, slightly spicy. A medium bodied Pilsner. The hops are floral and spicy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. A little smooth tasting for a pilsner, they usually have that crisp bite. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Bottle; poured a pretyy clear, dull gold with a smallish white head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey, earth, yeast, grass with a hint of floral. Quite bready overall. Flavor was a bit weird, with a good dose of mineral and smokiness nights in the beginning. Grassy and bready as well, with a long lingering finish that wasn’t too good for me. Not very good overall for me.
