When someone is able to take a very basic beer, i.e. a German Pilsner, using only ordinary ingredients, without showy flair or fancy addiditves, and does that to perfection, then that is a beer worthy of high praise. This is that beer. Wonderful grassy flavor with a balance of sweet and subtle bitterness this is a drinkable but complex product. Best of its kind.

Pours gold with a decent white head. Smells of dry pilsner malt, some straw, hints of citrus, elements of spiciness. Tastes dry with a nicely balanced bitterness and an excellent citrussy finish.

.5 litre swing-top brown bottle from Florianís. Crystal-clear straw-yellow body with a quarter inch of white head. Smells awesome - European hops and biscuit malt, very sweet. Biscuit and caramel malt are balanced by European hops. Definitely sweet with slight toastiness. Light crisp body with slightly less carbonation than expected. Very drinkable though, one sip definitely invites another and before I realized, the bottle was gone. The best pils Iíve had to date.

Had a clean, crisp body with light golden color. There was a slightly sweet maple-ish aftertaste though.

Pours gold with very large white head and plenty of lacings. Aroma is very potent Pils and no skunkiness whatsoever. Taste is full tasty Saaz hops with just enough malts to perfect the style. To use an overused expression, this is an "awesome" Pils. Wish it wasn’t $3.00 US for a 21 ounce bottle as I would make this my regular Pils. Hey, I might do it anyway!

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a bright golden straw color, topped by at least an inch of white foam. A little bit of spotty lacing. Mildly sweet aroma. Hmmm... This is pretty tasty. A smooth malt presence, lightly sweet with a little caramel, combined with a sweet hay flavor. A little zesty citrus spice from the hops in the finish. Not quite medium body and gentle carbonation. this beer is, however, exceptionally soft and smooth.

ComradeK (1114) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright gold, with a strong head and good lacing. The aroma is all hops - floral, grassy and slightly sweet. There is an unusual sweetness up front, as the beer enters the mouth, followed by strong, spicy pilsener hops. This flows into an enjoyable malt finish, tempered by the same lovely hops. A great example of the German interpretation of the pilsener style.

Requisite golden clarity with some noble froth uptop, medium bodied with a nice gingery hop prickle on top of very clean and pure malt with a nice orangey tang in the finish. Slightly more caramel than some pils, not over the top in bitterness but definitely substantial, itís a nice wet version of a pils, not super dry, still I like it.
