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

mansquito (4447) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Miles, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours straw with a white head. Aroma is light hints of grass, bready malts, some German hops. This is a very mellow pilsner. Not too much in the way of bitterness, but plenty in malt complexity. The beer shines especially in terms of drinkability and subtlety. Not overstated, but excellently balanced. Quite nice.

gripweed57 (1109) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow gold color. Big fluffy white head. Pleasant light grain nose has hints of grass and citrus hops. Dry malt flavor is light in body and depth. Tasty, yet lacking. Could use a bit more maltiness. Finish is dry and lemony.

aracauna (3317) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Nicely hoppy, but this one would improve a little bit crimping up the malt flavor. It’s a little muddy where it should be drier.

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

lesifflebiere (1521) - 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 (3058) - 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 (9957) - 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?

Thebullshornbar (74) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2014
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
