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

Maltier and sweeter than I expected...not that that’s a bad thing. Clear light gold color with a thin, lightly clinging white head. Hoppy aroma tempered a bit by a sweet corn tinge. Smooth, medium mouthfeel with a burst of carbonation up front. The hoppiness of the aroma doesn’t quite translate to the taste. There’s a punch of hoppy bitterness up front but that fades to a sweet malty finish. Nice beer.

Smooth, slightly sweet. Some malt along with a hint of fruit. A fairly dry finish with a bit of hops.

Fritz123 (922) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Nice early day beer with lunch. Pours a light yellow-gold with a mostly clear body. Thick white headed lasted and laced in my tulip. Aroma of bread, cereal, dough, straw, and pears. The taste was a good showing of the aroma. Light and crisp. Finish is straw/hay and light yeasts. Refreshing and good.

SanfordBrewer (1390) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2014
translucent straw with a foamy white head. medium body with medium-high carbonation.

aroma: pilsner malt, herbal hops, salty minerality, faint notes of sulphur and vinegar.

taste: sweet pilsner malt followed by crisp salty minerality and giving way to herbal hop bitterness for a clean finish.

a bit softer than most german pils, more sessional for me, like a czech pils.

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 (2737) - 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 (927) - Coconut Creek, Florida, 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 (248) - 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!)

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Pils mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, grasig. Geschmack herb, grasig, minimal würzig.

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.
