3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow lager. Small, everlasting, creamy white head. Thick lacing.
The nose is floral and sweet with notes of honey.
The flavor is sweet. Not quite balanced, but close.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Short, bitter finish.
Not my favorite style, but a pretty good brew nonetheless.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium white head of finely sized bubbles that left very little lacing as it receded. It had a mild aroma of hops and malt and a wheat yellow cloudy body with yeast floating in it. It has a mild initial bite that smoothens in the finish. Its flavor was a bit fizzy and hoppy.

The label says Organic. Not too impressed by this Pilsener. I could not quite acquire a taste for this one. It poured a white creamy head. There was no lacing on the sides of my glass. Poured a cloudy yellow color. The yeast was visible in my glass. It had a sweet aroma.

A very enjoyable light pils, big head with the required cloudiness to go along with the organic label. Clean but not as crisp as the best straight products

Another great product from Pinkus! My first actual unfiltered pils and looks similar to their weizen but a little less cloudy. Nice big white foamy head though like the weizen has. I'm not that big on Pils but I must say this is a good one. Great clean crisp flavorful beer. Classic Pils malts and only slight bitterness. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher, it's a quality brew.

A slightly different label, has "Organic" written across the front. Almost uncarbonated for a pils, but nice light malt front and dry grassy end. Nothing spectacular, but nicely refreshing for a cheap bottle. I enjoyed this one!

Not pun intended, but has a very organic taste, in a very perplexing way. Has nice body, color and aroma, but taste is definetely an aquired one. Strong, slightly overburdening yeastyness and bread flavors. Good to try, but not mush of a keeper.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2003 Full but mellow hop nose---slight yeasty quality as well, but pleasant...Color is a hazy sunny gold---generous sea-foam head and cobweb lace...Subtle sweetness anchors solid malt foundation. Hops are prominent and possess a nice roundness. carbonation is kept light. Finish is quite clean with trace organic tang...Good body...Fine balance and solid contribution from both malt and hop elements...overall, this is very good, and is clearly superior to the vast majority of organic lagers.

This was not a bad pils, but then again, I have never had an ulfiltered one, nor do I like organic beers. Something to try, but nothing too exciting.

Pours a cloudy, orangish pale yellow color with a large, lingering white head. It has a nice, hopp pilsner aroma. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty up front with a nice hoppy finish. This is one of the better German pilsners I have had, smooth and very refreshing.
