12oz bottle. Pale straw color with little head. Smells of citrus and malt. Taste slightly like lemons and grass. Solid Pils.

lesifflebiere (1392) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Une blonde un peu trouble et à la mousse blanche résistante, et dotée d’un nez en malts blonds et en Saaz. En bouche, c’est un peu plus fruité et sucré que prévu, mais plutôt du côté agrumes, une touche d’acidulé conclut l’affaire. Désaltérante et fraîche, c’est quand même une pilsner atypique, malgré cette version qui se veut teutonique ; au final, c’est une inclassable qui possède des caractéristiques de ce style, et en cela, elle est tout à fait réussie.

Beerdedone (2860) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of pale malts, grains, citrus and grass. Flavor of sweet pale malts, lemon peel, grains, grass, earth and had a crisp dry refreshing finish

Smutty always does a great job with classic Old World beer styles and this is no exception. Light bitterness with crisp Saaz hops. Nice malt balance which gives it a German character and rounds out the palate, similar to a Dortmunder. Carbonation is pretty high.

crossovert (8604) - Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Haxed pale gold, huge white head that lingers. Smells like... saazer hops. Flavor is dry, balanced, slight sweetness, this nails the lager style on all levels, Wonderful, where have you been in my life?

This is a delightfully flavorful representation of a pilsner that pours slightly cloudy. The nose permeates the senses with noble hops and a slight bit of maltiness. The herbaceous minty hops sweep though the palate coating the inside of my mouth while an almost unlikely sweetness subdues the initial impact of the hops. This sweetness dissipates and gives way to a pleasantly dry finish.

Light retention and slight lacing. Smells of lemon grass and malt. Tastes of lemon grass with a little bit of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (10503) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a small, frothy and bubbly bright white head, short retention that clings to the edge, light lacing. Aroma is moderate Pils malt, medium earthy and spicy Noble hops, faint DMS (cooked corn) notes, and no diacetyl. Flavor is moderate crisp Pils malt, medium spicy and earthy Noble hops, moderate hop bitterness, light cooked corn (DMS) notes, and clean fermentation with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This unfiltered Pils proposes plush cereals and herbal hops beautifully balanced in a bubbly and quenching mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam covers the misty straw blond.
-The mouthfeel could be a bit crisper or drier for my tastes.
-This must be amazing when super fresh and on tap.
-This reminds me of Feierling’s Inselhopf in its flavour profile, body and unfiltered rusticity.

Very nice German pilsener. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Good malt balance and not too thick. Enjoyable.
