Bottle: Deep golden coloured, slowly diminishing fluffy white head; strong sweet-grainy (barley) nose, supported by a shy floral hoppiness; sweet (grainy) base with a light bitter flavour; short, sweet and herbal-bitter finish. This could be an average Bohemian Pilsener..............

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Lightly toasted biscuity pils malts support talkative herbal hops in this fluffy, engaging Pilsener.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam graces the misty blond. This one looks as good when poured properly from the bottle as it can when they pour their other beers from the tap.
-Bitterness balances out the finish.
-This is not the driest of Pilseners, but then again every ingredient is expressed wonderfully in an airy feel. Hard to fault a beer like that!
-Drinkability is obviously sky high.
-This doesn’t taste like your classic German Pils at all. Malts are toastier and hops are more subdued. More of a styleless countryside brew. Reminds of some Lithuanian Sviesus, as a matter of fact.

Bottle at the brewpub and back home.

Bottle from Frankische Botschaft. Pours clear light golden with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of spicy hops. Taste is fizzy and fresh, lots of carbonation, makes me think of a champagne , pearling in my mouth. Short light malty and grassy hops in the end.

Honeyish malt aroma, residual aromahops. Dark golden, low carbonation, lowish head. Sweet honeyish malt base, fullbodied with a rather low-key bitterness. Wellagered spritzyness, grainy aftertaste.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2014
Das Bier schaut etwas trübe aus. Der Geruch ist sehr schön hopfig-frisch. Im Antrunk sehr herb-säuerlich, dieser Geschmack verfliegt aber sehr schnell. Würde fast sagen, mein Bier ist umgeschlagen, obwohl ich es "artgerecht" gelagert habe und es noch 4 Wochen haltbar ist..... --> wenn es so schmecken muss, ist es nicht mein Bier :-) Test vom 3.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,3,6,3,12,3 - 4,80

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Golden color with small head. Honeyish and fruity aroma with notes of apricot. Sweetish, malty, honeyish and slightly toffeish flavor with some fruitiness and low to medium bitterness. OK beer but underhopped for a pils.

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Des céréales grassouillettes sur lesquelles le brasseur aurait étendu un beurre de noisettes fraiches. Des notes de vanille et de poivre s’amourache de la rondeur céréalière et forment un union gustative unique. Un moment de pure illumination pour moi.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - MAY 16, 2005
Farty nose, gold color, fluffy white head. Vegetable, foul grain taste. Thin weak body. Off taste and balance. I don’t care for this very much.

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Copper colored, small frothy head on top. Soft carbonation. Light clay nose, sweet cooked celery and grain taste. Weird.
