bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2014
33cl courtesy of import-savvy idiosynkrasie, mercy! A standard greenish hay pour with contained fresh white bread dough and straw notes gives way to a subtle complexity in hop florals giving off cavaillon melon, nettle, mint and a fresh "pollenised" quality I cannot quite lay my finger on against a lean cereal crispness. Easy chugger, with interestingly exotic distractions underneath the surface.

pours a slighty hazy gold color. It has that sweet light bready malt aroma you’d expect from a typical pilsner as well as a fruity tartness.. i want to see it’s green apple of some kind. Flavor is quite nice. While I can’t put my finger on anything too specific, I’ll say it’s taste is a good blend of sweet, bitter, and spicy, and tart.

Idiosynkrasie (4118) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
355ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has cautious fruity notes, peach, apricot, a touch of white bread and straw. Taste is moderately sweet pale malty, a touch of white bread, slightly bitter, fruity hoppy overtones, hints of peach and apricot again; hoppy flavours turn from fruity to grassy in the finish. Very nice Pilsener.

Maxbier (404) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Light golden haze, white head. Light citrusy cereal aroma. Bright citrus lemon and orange. Light carbonation, sweet in the middle. Mild saaz hop finish. Because this is Jack’s Abby I was expecting amazing, turned out to be "only" very good.

WillemsUrenkel (663) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
12 fl. oz. bottle, bought at Grebhan´s in Bremen. Pours out pale golden, light unclear, some bigger sediments, small fine head. Fresh hopy, crisp flower meadows on the nose. Starts hop fruity, very fresh, citrus, melon, mid carbonated. Dry hay and grain. Nice bitterness. Great east coast interpretation of a Pilsener. Highly recommanded.
