UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Draught at Battersea BF 2007. Very drinkable pils. Very crisp and clean, very good subtle citrus flavours if a bit metallic. 3.4/5. Re-rate on tap at GBBF 2013. Most right thinking people’s beer of the festival. Such amazing hop that leapt out of the glass at you, so green, so verdant, so amazing, then the perfect colour and clarity and frothy white head, and the carbonation and the pale malt and then the bitter finish. Stunning. Simply a world class beer.

Draught in Bamberg, the German beer walhalla! One of the better German Pilsners. Sparklingly refreshing in taste. Very nice hoppy taste and finish, no overpowering alcohol. Light and becoming.

Drunk in the beer garden of the Keesman Brewery. Perfect light fluffy hoppy perfection of a pilsener. Marvellous

tap at keesmann. awesome herbal, resiny, grassy, dank hops. rustic, funky basement wet grass. really nice. bitter, abrasive, green crisp grass with a touch of light lemongrass. a touch doughy, yet dry. nice body. flavorful, sessionable, complex, rustic pils. awesome.

Gravity unfiltered at GBBF 2013. Probably the top beer of the festival in my opinion. Clear pale amber, medium white head. Nose is fresh cut grass, dry straw, matured hay, cereal malt, crisp lager yeast. Taste is straw, tangy cut grass,cereal malt, lightly sweetish honey. It’s soft and only slightly dry on the palate. Light, effervescent and highly drinkable. Beautiful beer.

White head, yellow body. The taste is herb-citrus intensiv, and good balanced. It is herb but because the special citrus flavour very nice to drink. I tried around 300 Pilsener Beers but this is one of maybe three I would recommend. I love it!

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
Bamberger Bierwochenende, Bier Nr. 1. - Vom Faß bei Keesmann-Bräu, Bamberg. - Goldgelb, klar. Dem Glas entsteigt ein betörender Duft nach fruchtig-vollem Hopfen: Grapefruit, tropische Frucht - man fühlt sich an ein IPA erinnert. Auch der Antrunk wird von herrlich intensiven Hopfenaromen beherrscht. Dahinter zart honigsüßes Malz. Vollmundig; sahniges Mundgefühl. Im Abgang grasig-harzige Hopfenbittere; wunderbar hopfenaromatischer, lang anhaltender bitterer Nachtrunk. - Runder, mit volleren Hopfenaromen und etwas süßer als ich es aus der Flasche in Erinnerung hatte, wo zitroniger Hopfen und Pampelmusenschale ein schlankes, trockenes Pils dominierten. So oder so ein Spitzenpils; vom Faß unschlagbar. - Hatte lt. Speisekarte 4,8 %, nicht 4,6 % wie hier angegeben.

When away from the IPA for a while, a nice pilsner does the job for the most part... as long as it is only temporary. Poured from the tap with a slightly hazy straw yellow color and a brilliant white generous head. Aroma of grass and honey and cereal. Flavor followed and was actually a bit sweet underneath. Firmly hopped with bitterness to balance, but the sweetness was just a bit excessive although overall the beer was excellent. Grainy flavored and mouthfeel. Good stuff.
