2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pale golden yellow with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma. Very crisp, very carbonated. A bit of spice, some yeast, some acidity, but thirst quenching - just wish the carbonation was a bit lower.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow with quickly subsiding head. Very yeasty aroma for a pils, and likewise the flavor is heavily gristy and tart, not as crisp as the best German pilsners, but this is still a fine German beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Thin lacing.
Aroma is yeast.
Palate is thin.
Not much in the flavor dept. Kind of piney, kind of citrusy, a little sweet.

16.9oz bottle Hazey, golden color, I was given a wet glass, so there was very little head, slight fruit and some grassy hops in the nose, more tart in the finish than bitter(but some bitterness) Certainly not sweet...its like I added a lemon to it, but I didn’t. Seems to have more in common with an ale, or more specifically a wiezen than a pilsner, although it isn’t a wiezen. Not a beer to look to if you want a pils(which I DID!), but it does have some interest to it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is that of an average pilsner, flavor is that of an average pilsner. Overall, an average pilsner. Not impressive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow beer with a dense white head. Typical Pilsner aroma of malt balanced by Noble hops. Smooth malt flavor with a proper bitter finish. Nothing really special here.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Rated as Pinkus Ur-Pils. This is a delicious, fluffy, tantalizing Pilsner. It’s pretty much everything a German Pils should be.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Normal German pilsener. Nothing special here. Some bitterness, not too much, and a clear, dry flavour. Quite carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold, hay and drying grass clippings, maybe fresh oatmeal in the nose, slightly thin on the tongue with a hint of lemon expanding into a nice floral hoppiness and somewhat abrupt bitterness, not real strong, stale lemon/menthol coughdrop aftertaste with some quenching acidity, actually leaving a fairly positive impression when all is said and done. Not much like a pils, but a credible un-filtered lager and pretty decent beer.
