3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow straw appearance, very light and clear, which I’ve heard is expected with German pils, as opposed to Czech pils. They’ve used Hallertau noble hops here, another nod to the historical differences between German pilsners and Czech pilsners. Flavorwise, in addition to the malt backbone that plays a big traditional lager role, the Bavaria-sourced Hallertaus impart a grassy, earthy and spicy character that’s a very welcomed change, in my opinion, to the run-of-the-mill American macro lagers out there. It’s fairly sweet as well, which works well alongside the spice and malt aspects. Very light bodied, low carbonation, overall it’s an easy one to put back early in the night when your senses are acute. I bought this beer thinking it was a new spin on the pils style, but I found out that it’s a pretty close descendent of the original German Radeberger Pils.

Really tasty pils. Crisp, fresh, clean and refreshing. Slight fruit with mostly floral and earthy herbal aroma. Flavor follows aroma with just a hint of strawberry in the finish. Smooth hoppiness. Beautiful straw color. Nice effervescent carbonation.

Stolen from my work fridge: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is massive amount of grassy hops. Basically, this takes German pilsners and hops then harder with the same kind of hops. Taste is bitter, but nicely counterbalanced with the pale malt backbone. Makes you burp though... something about aggressively hopped pilsners.
