Made of organic country malt, top-fermenting yeast, natural hops and first-class brewing water in long-proven brewing procedure, strictly after the German purity requirement.

Taupe body with a bubbly head and emanating a light maltiness. This brew has an easy maltiness with an orange zest/slightly metallic quality. A simple ale that won't offend.

Bread dough, malty aroma. Slightly hazy appearance with some particles.Flavors of mild sweet malt,lemon and bread dough.Not as hoppy and crisp as I expected.This is a great German beer.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a big, white head that lingers. It has a light, malty aroma. Light body with medium carbonation, the flavor is malty and lager like with hints of yeast and fruitiness. The finish is slightly sweet, but crisp. This one is light and refreshing and would make quite a nice drink on a hot day. Hell, it would make quite a nice drink any day.

Metallic flavor? You must of got a bad batch or something as I found this beer very drinkable. A nice fruit aroma with a smoothness to boot. A decent beer from these Germans.

Light citrus/lemony scent, small head with a lot of lace, malty, average carbonation, I do not taste any metallic or sour flavors, actually pretty tasty.

First German beer I ever threw away before done. Over carbonated, metallic nasty taste. Yuck.

’Snozwangers, Vermicious Knids? What kind of rubbish is that?’ asked Veruca Salt’s father as I was popping the cap off this unusual brew. Lighter than hell for an alt, to be sure, tangier than any Kolsch I’ve tried. Just plain weird. Aroma: Malt, malt, fresh sweet barley malt and wheat tang and little else. Highly carbonated, wonderful head. Interesting to say the least. Taste is sourish, thin and a bit metallic, but hey, I like a taste shaker-upper.

Pinkus is not a member of the Koelsch Consortium, so they can’t call it a Koelsch. But that’s about what it is -- a traditional type of Koelsch called Wiess -- cloudy, tangy, and unfiltered. It certainly isn’t like what one thinks of as an Alt.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Very light colored for a German alt, almost like a pilsener. Nice, creamy head. Slight hop and citrusaroma. Hoppy and citric taste, with just a hint of citric sourness. I really like this beer. Re-rate: tap, at the brewery. Aroma has a flowery hoppiness. Hoppy, vanilla flavor. Long lasting hopbitter finish.
