SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear and golden color with a white head. Aroma is light but full of grain and overall freshness. This pours over into a fresh corn, grass, and malt mix. This is one of the best pils I have had EVER!

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2008
12 oz bottle via Liquid Sol. Pours an almost clear golden with an average white head. Nose is spicy. Taste starts with a nice malty breadiness, almost a little toasty, then some nice floral/earthy/spicy hops kick in and linger long intot he aftertaste. This has a very nice balance, a good mouthfeel, perfect carbaontion and medium body. A superb Pils.

Concluding my jaunt in German beers is the Aktienbrauerei Jubilaums Pils. Other Aktienbrauerei beer’s have been modest in quality, but I still had high hopes for the Pilsener, which I anticipated would be so classically central European that no German brewer would release anything less than unacceptable. My brain knows this is untrue, but my gut has an overiding optimism. A desultory, mottled, soapy head floats on the surface of the bright yellow beer. A horde of bubbles make their migration to the top, some sticking steadfast to the side of the glass, but most do not. A sweet and semi-corny aroma drifts up from the beer, gracing my nostrils with a touch of brown sugar, a squeeze of lime and a bright and clean aroma that is so characteristic of a well crafted pils. Not a whiff of skunkiness anywhere. The flavor resounds mutely and dry, with no sugar sympathy anywhere. At first I catch a glimpse of honey, but it quickly fades into a quenching, medium-light, dry and grainy brew. The taste is absolutely crystal clear, and delicious, but neither complex nor deep. So my question is, is this the real deal? Is this a genuine pilsener? Is this like Kaiseki Japanese food where you need proper acclimation to appreciate the subtle flavors?

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
0.5L bottle. Pours a clear, medium straw color; bright white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Very solid, dry, and crisp aroma; toast, crackers, and some yellow fruits; nicely dry and refreshing with some mineral bitterness. Medium mouthfeel: toasty malts, breadiness, and bone-dry overall; crisp mouthfeel, with a solid presence of balancing minerals and herbal hops; as Jordan stated, not exceptionally high on bitterness or on resiny hoppiness, but very dry and refreshing and a good example. I could drink a lot of this beer; very sessionable. Medium finish: burnt toast, crackers, and a touch of cardboard and minerals.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle: Lightly hazy gold color with a light white head and a decent ring of lacing. The nose is snappy with a touch of earthy noble hops and a very clean touch of pilsner malt. A light malty mouthfeel accompanies the nose and it transcends down into a light mouthfeel and a crisp grassy body. The finish is pale and light. Toasty malts, crisp bitterness, but not as brash as I’d expect. I’d like to see more toast and more bitter.

IrishBoy (3752) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
.5L bottle from Hollingshead Deli; Nose of grassy hops, light sweetness, and grain; yellow with a big, glass-lacing white head; flavor is lightly bitter, peppery, and grainy breadiness. Finish lightly bitter; great pils!

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Sweet floral nose, with just a touch of honey and grassy hops. Sweet bready maltiness, not overly sweet not quite as crisp as I would like, but still pretty easy drinking.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2008
Golden straw color with small white head. Sweet honey and bready malt smells with a good dose of Saaz on top. Sweet bready flavor thats almost balanced by grassy and woodsy hop bitterness, but still comes off a bit too sweet. Just a bit off balance. Smooth yet vibrant carbonation is not quite creamy, but still feels very nice. Very drinkable and close to being really nice, but slightly misses the mark. Would definitely try again.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Grassy, nigh floral aromas. Gold color with a decent white head. Near medium in body with smooth, almost creamy, carbonation. Flavor is a bit herbal, with some breadiness, and a good amount of bitter. Finish is crisp and clean, with a mildly dry bitterness. Not a Czech pils, but a good lager.

Bottled(330ml). -Golden coloured, small white head, stale nose. Very fizzy. Ordinary german pils with notes of cardboard and some hints of honey. Also some weak hoppy notes in the finish.
