Bottle brown, 500 ml, 11.5P
Appearance: Pours very bright golden, citrusy body colour, perfectly clear in its texture, there is very gentle carbonation, as the beer quickly decarbonates but on the other hand the head is very thick, huge initially, than slowly decreasing to a small, gives preminant lacing what is nice to see in the Pilsener type of beer, deep frothy seems almost creamy and slighty off - white.
Aroma: Sharp and refreshing hoppyness which is very distinct and high in its aroma, herbal, focused and also somewhere in its deepness gentle sweet malty touch, very citrusy, reminding a lot like Classic Bohemian Pilsener of very high quality and sharing a lot with its Bohemian neighbour. Some interesting accdity, a hint of sauerkraut.
Flavour: Very nice and pronounced sharp hoppyness giving strong and focused bitterness on your palate especially after some time, in the aftertaste aromatic herbal, refreshing and pronounced hoppy nose. Maltyness is hidden somewhere at the background, very high hoppy content. I haven’t encountered so high hoppy level beer in a long time up to now. Citrusy notes, lemon seeds and grapefruit. Very light body, in texture dry, refreshing, easy going and generally strenghtening apetite. Malty is not as fat in its content or stress on malty sweetness as some ’Bohemian Pilseners’ but still decent and unforgetable, mild but not sparkling on palate due to low body carbonation.
Palate: Body is light, texture is definitely dry, carbonation on palate is very low, finish feel is citrusy, clean and surprisingly not that chalky.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
Hits all the right notes: fresh grass, bit of citrus, a bit of yeast -- that outdoorsy smell you get from German Pils. Clean, a bit malty, but overall a bit dull.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle, 4.9%. Clear golden colour. OK white head. The flavour is standard lager, quite flavourful, but with a little rubber.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2008
Golden colored with lively carbonation. Medium sized white head. Hopped and crispy aroma with some weird banana note. Medium bodied. Flavor is similar basic German pils: biting hops and lemon, aftertaste turns to dry one.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells perfumy with some crisp dry malt presence. Tastes bitter with some nice dry pilsner malty goodness and some splashes of perfumy wildflower like hoppy touches on the finish.

yespr (37030) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden with a lacing white head. Light hoppy and grassy aroma. Flavour is dry and mild cardboardish. Slowly building dry bitterness with a light spice note. Nicely mild herbal and bitter finish.

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2008
Biggish fine-bubbled shiny white head. Yellow body with carbonation. Light mildly fruity peppery aroma with malty earthy notes. Dry golden fruity taste with malty honeyish notes and traces of mint. Chalky, clean, sharpish mouthfeel. Aftertaste is much the same. Spicy, minty taste lingers. An excellent pils. (0.25l draft at der Pschorr, München.)

On tap at the Castle. Wow. Maaaaaaaan this stuff was good. Since it was on tap I’m sure it was in the best possible condition to be enjoyed outside of Munich, and I’d be so bold as to say that this is about as close as one can get to true German draught beer in North America. Amazing, simple, subtle and floral aroma of Noble hops, mixed in with pils malts that promise not to disappoint. Flavour is the same as the aroma but magnified. Crisp, smooth as a Helles, refreshing, with a perfect Noble hop finish, followed by an absolutely delicious sweet and bready malt character. This is, in all honesty, the best German Pilsener I’ve ever had! A Pilsener that entices you to drink more and more, pint after pint!
