Sample bottle for review. Pours a bright, if a little hazy, yellow pils color. Lots of bubbles in the glass, and a big head up top. Smell carries a little skunk and oxidation that tapers off once it’s been in the open air. Taste is clean a light pilsener malt, with a touch of the same water composition. Some peppery German hop, but I suspect there is a lack of availability and variety for organic hops so far. Dinging its nose when it’s travelled so far seems unfair, but that’s how it comes to me. I think it marks up better than most other organic beers I’ve had.

corby112 (2716) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a 2.5 finger pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaked of spotty lacing left behind. Earthy, floral hop aroma with hints of grass, straw, light fruit and pale malts. Nice balance of hops and malt with some apple, pear, bread and biscuit countering the grassy pine notes. Full bodied for the style with a crisp earthy hop bite that lingers over the pale malt, bready yeast and light fruit notes into a slightly dry finish. Floral with resinous, grassy pine notes along with straw, hay, bread and pilsner malts. Slightly metallic in the finish but this beer us refreshing, decently balanced and easy to drink.

Jultsu (394) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Supervaalea väri, semiok vaahto joka häipyy kohtuu noipeaan. Raikas tuoksu, raikkaahko hapokas maku, vetisyyttä toki mutta ei häiritse. Janojuomana hyvä.

500 ml bottle from notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pilsner malts, grass, biscuity malts, herbal hops, a light spicy character, finishes soft, just ok.

I know a lot of Pilsener, but I don’t know anything else to compare with Pinkus Pils. Doesn’t mean that this Pilsener is the best of the world or even good, it means Pinkus Pilsener is extraordinary. Definitely. The special one. I like also the green label und the fact that it’s from Muenster - and I buy it here in Nuremberg, which seems a little bit strange to me. Enjoy!

loubar (156) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAY 7, 2015
500 ml bottle from Whole Foods. Poured a hazy yellow/gold with a small white head. Thin lacing. Aroma is sweet grains, spiced hops and grass. Taste of sweet biscuit malt with lemon and apple overtones and mild hops bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly crisp. Pleasant, easy drinking.
