soft and dainty and delicate. semi-green. aroma of honey and green tea. very melt-in-the-mouth. the bitterness really creeps up on you and is quite strong eventually. lots of hops - has an ipa quality to it

Being in the town of ridiculously over-the-top beers made according to arcane and bizarre traditions, I didn’t expect to find a really good pilsener. But this is just a beautiful, soft, round, honeyish, then herbally bitter pils that might as well have come from the czech republic, if not for the green tinge in the colour that good german pilseners have.

nice pils for the town of bamberg started the night out here and staggered across the street to spezial rauch brewery. any way this pils is on the dry side and a little hoppy and thin bodied but quite good for a inexpensive beer

Golden coloured. Malty but dry. Bitter. A true to style very traditional German style pilsener.
