3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the moan and dove. Pours an extremely light, straw yellow with a foamy steady white head. Nose is lightly grassy, biscuit malts, earth, light floral character. Flavor is similar, a tad metallic at times, and less hoppy than I prefer (even though prima pils isn’t exactly brewed to style).

A fine example of the style, though I was expecting it to be a bit cloudier due to it being German. I was also under the assumption that it was unfiltered, but I’m having a hard time telling if it is or not. Aroma is subtly floral. Upon tasting it is light, crisp, and refreshing almost like a Cezch style Pilsner. The malty sweetness is there just enough to give complexity to the dry hop finish, creating notes of fruit. I can’t place exactly what fruit, but I want to say apple. Pilsner was not a style that I originally enjoyed, but it has grown on me and I would drink this again any day.

Draught at brewery + 50cl bottles - Tasted almost better from the bottle than I remember it at the brewery. Harmonious and well-rounded pilsner, very fresh with grassy-floral hops and less sweety "breadinness" than many other traditional Franconian pilsners/lagers. Hence, a great thirst quencher.

Light golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, hints of cook, yeast and floral hop. Medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is bitter and refreshing. Mouthfeel is long and hoppy... lovely beer!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Pours with a pale yellow hued body with a fading white head. Aromas are bready, grainy, apple (not really acetaldehyde), fruity, sulfur and a touch of hop character. Flavors are apple, watery, grainy, bready, high sulfur, low hops. Messy, watery and bland. Lively and dry, not a great pilsner.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale straw yellow color with a short lived white head. Intense green apple aroma, lots of grass, yeast, and fruit esters. A bit of pale malt sweetness, some cracker, and grain. The flavor is moderately sweet. Lots of yeast, grass, and a slight sourness. Quite a bit of green apple, a bit of lemon zest, and faint floral hops.

Kristály tiszta, aranysárga szín, hófehér, kemény és sűrű hab, ami igen kitartó. Ja persze, ez egy pilseni! Illata vizes szalmás, zöld füves, komlós. kissé vajas. Íze is ilyen, kis karamellás beütéssel, malátás középpel és jó sok német komlóval. Könnyű és igen szénsavas. Utóíze kesernyés, frissítő. Könnyen csúszó, hétköznapi pilseni.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a 1/2" head that reduces to swirls, and light streaks of lace. The taste is of a true traditional German Pilsner - clean malt joined by a strong dose of floral hops midway through, both flavors continuing through the finish. This one is a bit filling, but otherwise, an excellent example of the style.
