Take a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, with this elegant, refreshing pilsner. Our brewers created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!” Formerly known as Shortbatch #11

kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2015
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.

nuplastikk (5797) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2014
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.

probstblueribbon (3726) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste is malt, grass, and caramel. Well made, but nothing outstanding.
