A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest. The 6-packs are brand new for the American market.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2014
330 ml bottle poured into footed pilsner. Clear pale golden color with three fingers of sudsy white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of malty honey sweetness with bready notes and some slight spiciness. Flavor is clean and refreshing. I’m not generally a pilsner guy, but this was a nice change of pace.

Frank (2929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
This strikes me as being more of a Dortmunder than a pils but who’s counting. It pours a clear golden color w/ a scant white head and just a little bit of lacing. The nose is of cut hay and and bread dough. This is just a bit sweet w/ a grain-husk malt character. The finish is quite bitter and clean aside from a bit of grass/chlorophyll character. This is very drinkable and flavorful, a tasty German lager whatever style it is.

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Clear gold with beady white lasting head. Sweet malty and grainy aroma. Lively pils champagne appearance. Light bodied, very dry and crisp palate. Moderate hop bitterness with a medium low hop flavor to back up the malt. Doesn’t have the green bottle oxidized skunk, but it does have a slight cardboard staleness. Slight toasty malt flavors with a light grainy sweetness. Pronounced flaked maiz flavors increase as the beer warmed.

ScipioA (313) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours out into a mug with a gold/orange color, crystal-clear with a pile of foamy white head. Sharp German hop nose along with hints of honey and yeasty dough. The honey sweetness really comes out in the flavor, but there is also some underlying lager funk that’s a little offputting. Lingering floral hop flavors along with a bitter sensation. It has a well-balanced, smooth mouthfeel. This is a good pils, but there are better ones to choose from instead (and worse ones to avoid!)

Jokk (46) - Odessa, UKRAINE - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle 0,5. Looks appropriate as for pils. Pleasant floral hops bouquet. Balanced clear malty flavor, soft rounded bitterness in aftertaste. Outstanding drinkability. Decent pils - especially for it’s price.

ContemplateBeer (1548) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Aroma: Hay, light grainy sweetness, light herbal hop presence. Appearance: Light, still gold pour with a solid, fluffy white head. Flavor: Light sweet grains with a peppering of herbal hops toward the finish; dries out rather nicely with the expected hop perfume. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Nice to have this on tap; very drinkable beer with a feel of authenticity.

tmoreau (2470) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a bright & clear, light gold color, with a nice display of rising bubbles, not a very lasting layer of frothy, white head foam, and some transparency to the thin but clingy, web-like lacing. The aroma was a typical lager nose, with Pils malt, some straw, and negligible hints of sulphur & DMS. The only sweetness throughout was a bit of wafer/cookie scent. Light bodied, with lively effervescence, a moderate, somewhat earthy hop bitterness, with some lingering quality, was key to the flavor. Crisp & clean, with compatible dryness hooking up with the bitterness in the finish. A very sessionable Pils.

September 2010. From bottle. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aromas of malt, fruit and hops. Crisp, medium carbonation with a slightly bitter finish.
