2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A pils that labels itself as organic, which is usually worth something here in der Peoples’ Republik. It’s light yellow, very well carbonated and has a ton of head and lace for a lager. It’s a grass bomb, with bit of stewed skunk cabbage. It has a husky veggie flavor as well, though with some malt presence. For all its bubbles, this beer feels watered down and lacking in body. Oh well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral hops aroma, with notes of maltiness and skunkiness. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, with hints of honey. Body is too watery though. What started good, became bad in the end. Not enough hoppiness for a Pilsener.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours a bit hazy with some micro sediment floatingin the body surface, body colour is bright golden, carbonarion visually is gentle, head is initially small, frothy, slowly decreases to minimal, slightly off - white, rather no lacing.
Aroma: Graphite, some gentle accidity, mineral nose, chalkyness, maltyness is hidden somewhere at the background and mainly dominated by herbal hoppyness, a bit hars but not as aromatic as in ’Hacker - Pschorr Pilsener’. A bit milky with some interesting nutty - woody hints, earthy, soily hops.
Flavour: Earthy hoppy nose, soil comes at front, than comes nicely pronounced bitterness on palate with still existant aromatic nose and decent grainy aftertaste, very well balanced between all the ingredients. A traditional, pure Classic German Pilsener being brewer according to the unchanged, old, traditional receipe. Some notes of cardboard and paper, dustyness and soilyness, saltyness dur to hops and carbon dioxide, barley grains. Sharp bitterness strenghting itself coming towards finish. Finish duration is very long, citruses, lemon, grapefruit.
Palate: Body is light, texture is very dry with sharp hoppy bitterness, finish feel is chalky, grainy, dusty, dry.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Clean and fresh Saaz hops accentuate this excellent session beer. This beer pours a nice frothy head, and releases a pleasing Saaz aroma with just a subtle hint of malt. The finish is slightly spicy, and almost a touch lemony, but it is quite smooth nonetheless. I re-rated this fine beer after having it most weekends this summer. It is THE best pilsner I have ever had. Just excellent and fresh and perfectly brewed. Just an outstanding pilsner and THE one that American micros should strive to duplicate.
