Thanks Christian for dragging this with all the french cheese and paté all the way up to Hamburg - must have been a hell of a smell in the train compartment and great picture! Huge big crown head. Golden color, fizzy carbonation. Very fesh nose, like fresh mashed grain. Pleasant greain taste with medium citrusy that lasts long. Great session beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
Talkative pils malt flavors engage herbal, spicy hops in a refreshing conversation from aroma to finish for a refreshing pint of unfiltered Pilsener.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam laces around the cloudy whitish yellow (this looks like a Witbier!).
-I love the fact that this is the lightest beer of the bunch abv-wise, but it is the most flavorful. Good job!
-The prickly carbonation remains soft when hitting the palate.
-Citrusy flavors rise from the spicy hops.
On tap at the brewpub.

[growler from brewpub]
Spicy, oxidized candy aroma with a touch of sulfur and some caramel. Faint notes of citrus and banana. Hazy dark gold with a bubbly white lacy cover. Slightly sulfury, fresh flavour that is nice and dry with some lotus root malt and a crisp bitterness. The sulfur and maybe a little diacetyl sort of makes this beer a little popcorny, but in a good way. Light to medium body, crisp and clean finish.

A foamy head ( large even for a plis) Hoppy & yeasty with a fair taste.
A good session beer

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pils with lots of personality. First of all, the head is just the fluffiest, foamiest white head I’ve ever seen. Almost comical, but inviting nonetheless. Pale gold color and a lively carbonation. Citrus flavors in a thin, quick malt that gives way to a broad, stinging hop bitter. Kinda like a lemon peel - dry and bitter. This is fairly aggressively hopped for a German pils. The balance if off, and there is a even a little sulfury-ness in the taste, but it’s fun and full of character. Thanks Christian!

Draught at the brauhaus
Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Mild malt and hop aroma, some noble hops appears. The malt profile is mild, but the combination of light crispness, extreme dryness and high bitterness creates a very refreshing impact; long final, although the hop doesn’t carry many aromatic qualities. Good.
