Nice pilsner aroma and flavor. Clear straw color. Typical thin body for a pilsner. 500 ml bottle.

A little murky for its style, it shows off a very pronounced hop aroma with citric and floreal slight notes. Very bitter and masculine it isn’t however cloying but rather drinkable. A very good beer but I still prefer the Tipopils by Birrificio Italiano which is more complex and articulated (and dry-hopped).

0.33 l bottle from the brewpub in Laaber... Clear light golden color, average head... Intensive hop aroma of fruity grapefruit, refreshing and quite alcoholy... Fruit Pilsener taste, more like an amazing IPA... Perfect beer...

superspak (2537) - Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2013
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/14/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass; beautiful appearance. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a lot of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, pepper, grass, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nicely balanced hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an excellent pilsner style! All around great balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

thornecb (4348) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Pours hazy gold into a stein. Bright white head with good retention volcanos as it recedes leaving sticky lacing. Hay and fresh malt aromas. Soft with bagged malt and dough upfront turning to an earthy bitter caramel finish.

Onslow (1149) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pour from a 16.9 pt bottle. Slightly cloudy brew with denser white head, good lacing. Aroma of grass, green fruit, a little mineral. Very dry at the start, bitter grass then a slight emergence of sweeter malts before a hoppy finish - grass, green fruit, tart and bitter. Dry and crisp. A fine brew.
