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.

Taster at the source. I’m not a big fan of pilsners, so bear that in mind if you bother reading this. Pours straw gold with a big white head. Everything she pours is like half head. Aroma is biscuit and lemon. Flavor is biscuit, lemon, a bit of almond. Saaz hop finish. Solid.

Smells nice, fresh, and lightly hoppy, bready and a bit yeasty. Taste is moderately crisp with a yeastiness as it warms. Decent pilsner, but not one of my favorites.

Bottle. Lactic barley malt and light rubber aroma. Pale yellow with giant white head and mild effervescence. Lightly sweet lemon barley malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Okay.

malvrich (75) - durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2015
About a month past best by date. A: Deep dirty yellow. Maybe some chill haze. Half finger of tight white head. decent retention and good lacing S: Biscuit bread/pretzel with herbal hops. T: Sharp maltiness with herbal hops note almost all at once. Sourdough malt flavor is most pronounced. Hops linger on the finish. M: Nice and not quite as light as I expected. Average but nice enjoyable level of carbonation. Fairly dry pleasant finish. O: I like this beer in general but this is perhaps lacking a bit of "snap" that I’m used to due to age.

On tap at Alibi, Seoul. Almost perfumy aroma with noble hops and hay. Clear straw under a thin white cover. Quite bitter lager flavour with pleasant soda cracker malt and some faint lemon. Light body, moderate carbonation, almost crisp.

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 22, 2015
Amarelo dourado, levemente turva por não ser filtrada, pouca espuma. Aromas de pão, levemente herbal e de gramíneos. Pouco sabor. A cerveja não estava mais nas suas melhores condições, para ser honesto. Corpo baixo. Final somente refrescante, Pouco amargor.

Bottle: Clear, very pale gold with a thin white head. Grass, grain, straw aroma. Taste is grassy, barley malt, pils malt, water.... Ok flavor, but very watery and weak. Diluted and muted. Bland.

kjc51478 (440) - 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.
