Bottle A: Cloudy yellow with a dim white head. Good lacing. N: Good nose. Lemon zest, grape vine, malt, heather, pepper, and earthy hops. T: Very tasty. Swirling hops and some citrus type sourness. Malt provides a light background. M: Fluffy and creamy. Light and drinkable. O: If someone handed me this in a liter, I’d drink it down and ask for more. Excellent, and almost as good as Heater Allen.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan body. Foamy white head. Big, classic noble hop aroma..grassy, spicy...jumos out at you. Medium bodied, the creamy yeast tones give it a sort of Kellerbier feel, or even Zwickel, but the hefty noble hops flavors are very Pils centered. Significantly more enjoyable than most US versions, and pretty solid for a German beer as well. Good stuff, World Class Pils.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Flasche aus einem Öko-Supermarkt in Berlin. - Strohgelb, klar. Nase und Antrunk malzsüßlich mit leichten, blumig-grasigen Hopfenaromen. Gut rezent, etwas wäßrig. Zurückhaltende Bittere im Nachtrunk. - Trotz „feinherber“ Hopfenaromen etwas blaß, eher ein Helles als ein Pils. Muß ein ökologisch korrektes Bier so schmecken oder hatten die Neumarkter Angst, mit etwas kräftigerer Hopfengabe ihre Biokundschaft zu verschrecken? Hier wäre mehr drin gewesen - schade um das gute Biomalz!

Different bottle than the one shown - mine had the long skinny neck (American version?). The hop level is just right for a pils. Light bodied & made only with pale malts. It’s not sweet at all, which is a very good thing. Grassy, a little aromatic, some spruce and hay.

felsenpils (95) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 8, 2013
A very delicate Pils. Clear blond color, massive foam and lacing. Nice malt flavor and a strong hop character without being bitter or too aromatic. I am not really into "organic" food and beverage, but if this is organic as well, all the better. Everything has been done right here, you could drink this all day. True German Pilsner is a style which is very hard to do right. In the US, everybody over hops and over caramel malts their Pils. In Germany, the tendency has been toward less characteristic Pils in the last several years, you can hardly tell one from another. Lammsbräu is doing it right. If you are into this beer style, then get a fresh batch of this. It blows Beck´s, Warsteiner, Bitburger, König and all the rest of the mass marketed German Pils out of the water. Worth every extra penny that it costs!

Clean, refreshing, w/ full thick body surprisingly. Best organic beer Ive had yet. Slight funk aftertaste though..

Steve_0 (2229) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle at home. Pour is clear golden in appearance with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Straw, grassy, somewhat chalky, minerals, a light hint of fruit, biscuit, and corn in the aroma. Taste is semi-sweet, yet easy drinking - light dough, corn, straw, grassy/earthy hops, hay, and somewaht floral with a light bitter bite on the backend. Light body with high carbonation. No real flaws and very clean tasting. Decent Pils.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Lightly hazed straw colored body with a patchy white head. Thankfully this is fresh enough that there’s no trace of ultraviolet light spoilage in the green bottle. The aroma is mild overall with some powdered yeast and calcium on top of quiet noble hops and saltine cracker pilsner malt, with only a smidgen of cooked corn kernel. Light body, lightly sweet, simple and quiet overall but lacks flaws. Somewhat oily green hop coating in the finish, but one swig it seems like hop oils and the next it seems like saccharine. Medium carbonation doesn’t bring to life the hop aroma and flavor very well. Still it’s serviceable as a German pilsner, which is more than you can say about most on the market in Colorado right now.

I had the Organic version, which came a skinny necked bottle. Very delicious.
