bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2015 33cl fliptop, local Getränkemarkt. Another characteristically naturtrübes Pils from the SouthWest profonde im Schwarzwald. Pours a beautiful murky golden with large head, sparkles when fresh. Upfront delicate Tettnang hop aroma, harmoniously complemented by smooth water and dry crisp pale malts. Modest homemade Pilsner, along with Ganter Urtrunk, Feierling Inselhop and Waldhaus Ohne Filter Herb one of the more aromatic and characteristic, small-scale Pilsners of the SW. // rerates 2014-2015: slowly becoming my favourite regional unfiltered Pils: radiant green noble hop bouquet, dry yet grain-fragrant, bitter and floral, modest lieblich sweetness. // To do justice to the freshest case I just bought and we finished within a week: the Löwen brewery must have either hit a lucky summery streak or upped their game using more whole cone hops, because both their regular Pils and their unfiltered Pils are spectacularly fresh, radiant with zesty Tettnang zip, just enough clean yeast left to make it smooth. World class pilsner.

Cloudy golden with a tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of hops and caramel. Sweet flavour with plenty of hops, malt and grassy notes. Finished dry and bitter. Nice one.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Wildflower honey angles ride this dry German Pilsener’s frothy effervescence until peppery, herbal hops delicately appose their unmistakable signature on the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A tower of foam protects the misty golden.
-The high level of effervescence and relative dryness makes for a quenching brew.
-This may not be as intricate as the Rothaus Pils, but it is very well made and is not your stereotypical, run-of-the-mill recipe. House character is quite pleasant.
-The nose is rather devoid of personality. Perhaps an early sign of aging? This swing-top bottle surely can’t help…
-The finishing hoppiness is levelled with the rest of the brew’s mild intensity.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle, 4.9%. Refreshing dusty aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. Good malty flavour. Good bitterness also, not high, but clean. Very nice and clean, does not taste much of Kräusen or yeast, but good.

jaghana (4945) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy golden beer with good head. Nose is hopy and malty. A very nice pilsner with pleasant malt and cereal notes, quite sweet, intense hops bouquet on citrus and hay. High bitterness and very nice perfume. On on the best pils I had, long bitter and pleasant aftertaste, good !

Troebele kleur met een stevige schuimkraag erop. Bier is zacht van smaak, beetje bitter in de nasmaak.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2009
bottle, bought in Steinach. Hazy pale golden colour, superb large white head, extremely solid and persistent. Hoppy nose. Medium-bodied, shy but very nice malty base with floral hoppy flavours and shy resiny hints. Lovely hop profile. Lingering hoppy finish. A delicious beer.

pivnizub (9520) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2012
Bügelverschlußflasche (Quack-Duck hat’s gefunden!): Hazy, golden, smaller white head, lazy carbonation, moderate dry bitter-hoppy nose with a small amount of malt underneath; solid bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and pretty soft; lingering dryish hoppy and malty finish with some "edges". Very good, but the filtered version is slightly better rounded......

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
(swing top bottle, 33cl, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Yeasty and slightly sweaty pale malty aroma with traces of honey and herbal hops. Slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Mildly malty base with yeasty notes and a present hops character; quite dry and moderately hop bitter finish with lingering herbal notes. Pleasant but I prefer the matured version. 18.I.12
