Pours a sharp clean straw yellow with a violent carbonation producing 2 fingers of sticky white foamy head. Soft and bready aroma with some fresh cut grass and hay. Mellow flavor. Very light body and crisp carbonation, not as sharp as Czech pils. Lightly bready.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a nice, clear golden w/ a big and lasting head of medium bubbles. Nose is grassy w/ hints of grain husk and a gypsum note as well. Flavor mostly follows suit but w/ a slight lemony citrus note and a floral overtone. Rather dry and drinkable w/ mild carbonation. Bitterness in the finish is a bit harsh and grassy but that’s only a mild complaint. This is a rather good pilsener.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Das soll ein Pils sein? Selten so gelacht! Sauerbier trifft es besser! Nichts gegen die oft dünnen bayerischen Biere, aber Pilsener Brauart ist dort wahrlich NICHT zu Hause.

Bottle, shared by Evan at the bottle shop. Fairly fresh for the German pils we usually see around here. Light grass and herbal hops, mild grainy/cereal malt, dry-ish finish. Solid, but still no Prima :)
