330ml bottle from Beermerchants.com, mistakenly sent instead of the Rothaus Eis Zapfle. Have had this countless during my many visits to Germany. Pours clear gold with frothy white head. Crisp refreshing pils. That’s it.

Shared bottle. Clear straw with nice white head. Light grains, very herbal, some grass, grapefruit peel, pine cones, dried apricots. Light sweet and medium bitter. Light bodied. Quite nice hoppy pils, not my favorite kind of hops but it makes an interesting Pilsner.

Sweet malt and shitty hay smell. Clear yellow, medium head. Sweet malt, but not as sweet as the aroma implied. Grass finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Not bad.

8 oz. draft at Tørst in Brooklyn, New York. The pour is a clear golden with a white head. The aroma is fresh cracker malt along with a nice earth grass. The taste is a perfect blend and balance of the cracker malt and the earth grass. Clean and crisp. The palate is light bodied with active carbonation and the dry crisp finish. Nice, really easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spuyten Duyvil, Brooklyn bottle: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grass, straw, and a bit of dough. Taste is in the same element. Hoppy, and a bit bitter without being vegetal or skunky in the least. Fresh and crisp. Balanced well. This is what a Pils is supposed to be like. Unpretentious, but well crafted.
