12 oz Bottle. Appearance is clear, yellow color with lots of foamy, off-white head. Aroma is mild grains, straw, and some grass. Taste is malty sweet, grain, grass hop bitterness. Palate is light-bodied, thin texture, somewhat watery, and a partially dry finish. Ok Pilsner but slightly too thin even for the style.

Not bad for a pilsener, which by definition cannot be great. Some grass and grain but over-carbonated.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Hazy bright yellow body...unfiltered..not what I would expect from the style. Creamy, soapy respectable white head, patchy after a minute or two. Pretty clean, straightforward aroma, some nice clean noble hops, not so much spicy as fresh and zesty. An awesome Pils, this is the real deal. Well expressed hop flavor and solid malt ingredients coupled with solid execution make this a pretty great example of the style. Well done, the lack of filtration gives it a fuller body, depth.

Had a pint of this at the Pump House. It was almost clear and was grassy and grainy. Just a little honey and yeast. Very light drinking fare.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Slightly hazy light golden with a decent bright white head, good lacing.
Aroma: Peppery/spicy/green/herbal German hopping supported by grainy Pils malt, quite spicy and peppery.
Palate: Medium body, full, rounded carbonation.
Flav.: A bit more malt presence compared to the nose, otherwise, quite similar with firm German hops presence; quite dry with moderate+ bitterness and a grainy malt and herbal hop finish.
Decentbar? A good example of a German Pils, which I don’t always enjoy.
