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.

This is a fine example of a Bavarian Pilsener. NIce bright golden color, great foam retention, good bitterness and a bit of a hop aroma. NIce and soft and clean, you can drink it by the bucket. This is one of the beers that American microbrewers never get right. One of the finest Pilseners imported from Germany.

(Bottle) From State Line Liquors, MD. I was pleasantly surprised by this one...the commercial description hints at being maltier, and I agree, it’s a little maltier than typical for a Pilsner. Still pleasantly hoppy though and not too heavy. Very enjoyable. Among the best of the bottled German Pilsners I’ve tried in the US.

"a pretty good example of the style. bready but still crisp with even a little bit of a hop bite. overall, a refreshing and well balanced beer. especially good in summer, though i just had one and it’s 34 outside!"

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
The 6th and final Lager/Pilsner on 15th Sep 2014 during a tasting session with my son. This was the best of a pretty poor bunch! half litre bottle: BBD 2nd Mar 2015. Good looking brew, golden, clean and bright with a full white crown: just like a Pilsner should appear like. The nose was thin, like most in this style, there was a hint of hop bitterness but nothing much. The taste was a crisp hop bitter flavour and very little malt sweetness compared to the other brews we shared during the evening. A good solid Pilsner although it only stood out because the others were so sweet and bland.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2014
Can from Petit Marché in Imazato. Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting as a palate cleanser. It pours a crystal clear gold with a foamy white head & a sweet sugary light malt aroma. Medium bodied with a round mouthfeel. The taste is sugary sweet light malts and a sharp mildly bitter finish. OK, it served it’s purpose and for 100 yen for a pint I felt satisfied.

16 oz pils glass draft at Gralehaus in Louisville, Kentucky (technically in the garden between Gralehaus and Holy Grale). The pour is a clear golden with a one inch pure white head. Great retention on the head. The aroma is cracker malt along with a bit of mineral and earth. The taste is fresh and crisp, nice malt character along with grass and mineral in the finish. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation, unfiltered mouth feel and a bit of sweet in the finish. Clean and tasty Pils.

Very clear golden with a white head and lots of bubbles. Crisp grain arpma. Crisp grassy flavor with manageble sweetness. Light crisp body but full flavor.

jaghana (4019) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - AUG 1, 2014
Can 50cl, nose is on dry toasted malt. Aroma is low, slightly malty, peppery hops that gives a medium bitterness at the finish, very common, sweet malt touch, just ok.

Fritz123 (1033) - 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 (1391) - 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.
