Pours a slightly hazy straw colour mit a good sized white foamy head. Some suspended particles floating around in there.Aromas of malt and hops with just a tad of fruit thrown in. Taste is crisp with malt being the predominant flavour and a nice hops bitterness to finish. A nicely balanced pils

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2004
The beer after jilting the 500ml brown bottle resides but briefly in the pilsner glass a luminous gold with a monumental creamy white head and after its demise the left over lace a thin sheet to conceal the glass. Nose has a nice crispness, clean and fresh, quite appealing to the olfactory and ocular senses; start is lightly sweet, nicely malted with the top light on the palate. Finish has a fair to middling acidity, the hops delectable in their spiciness, quite dry and lingering aftertaste, a nice thirst quenching beer for a hot late summer day in Arizona.

Pours a perfect straw/light golden color with a tall white head made up of the smallest bubbles. Straw and lightly wheat aroma with some nice floral hops. Taste is very crisp and clean with a nice subtle balance and good finishing floral/fruity hops.

Had this at the Bier Garden in Portsmouth VA on 8-7-04. Lightly hazed blond with a small dense foamy white head. Aroma is malty but still has some nice hoppiness to it. There’s also a bit of a sulphurous note in their. Maybe this bottle was getting close to being dead?? I didn’t see any date on it, so let’s see how it tastes before passing judgment. Tastes fines! Malty notes with some light hay and sweet notes. Maybe a light hint of fruit? Seems carbonated but not as full as others I’ve had today. Finish is malt, some lighter fruit notes and spice(?). Not sure where that’s coming from, but that’s what I’m getting.

Reid (2235) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2004
First time I had seen this German brewery in Oregon. Comes in the pint bottle, brown euro-style. Old fashioned style label. it pours quite livelly into my pint mug, nice enough honey golden colour with a goodly sized white head.Leaves quite a bit of lace. I liked the aroma of this one very malty yet the hops still show through well..its very fresh. For a pilsner the taste is much more pointed towards the malts than usual, and its good not overlly sweet, some nice hops in the back.Buttery , honeyish tasting beer.Quite remarkably smooth. Felt very nice on the palate Good drinkable malty lager..I liked this , it reminded me of Ayinger’s Jarhundertbier..though maybe not as excellent.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Light golden color,small white head that faded fast leaving little behind.The aroma was malty and fruity with a decent but light hop presence.The flavor was mild and nicely done.Lightly malty,lightly fruity with a good but uneventful hop taste.It’s a fairly smooth easy drinking brew,and well worth having a few around for later.

Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2004
A classic soft Bavarian style pils from one of the best midsize breweries in all of Germany. Beautiful long lacing white head, clean totally balanced finish!Great in the bottle, excellent on draught, this brewery is consistantly on style throughout their wide range of offerings.

Wow! this is definetly one of the best pils out there.I have this one in stock (I liked it that much). Head is whitish and long lasting. It's very balanced and the aftertaste is almost non existent. I drink this one with a lidded stein and it retains the aroma and flavor better than a conventional glass.
