The German Pils is not the same as the Euro pils (that was more full-bodied, less hoppy). We have done the German several times in the past but it has been two or three years since we last did it.
Crisp, refreshing and very drinkable. Cold fermented and aged for a full 6 weeks to give this brew an unparalled traditional flavor.

20070120 At Paulís. Crisp and very dry, super hopped with lots of saaz and grassy earth. Vaporizes on the finish, leaves me wanting more. Maybe too mild aromas or maybe I just think that because I canít get enough.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Hand- bottle from Growler. Pours a perfectly clear golden with nice lively carbonation, and a sticky fluffy white head- great lace. Aroma is bready, light toast, and fresh spicy and herbal german hops. Good full flavor for the style- lots of bready malts, with a subtle dough quality, backed with a good spicy german hop kick. Body is a bit lighter and is overall a bit more bitter than the bohemian pils. Smooth as hell though.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2007
Poured a clear effervescent golden with a small fizzy white head. Sharp hoppy aroma of grass and pine. Flavor is toffee, grass and pine hops, a bit of biscuit dough. Perfectly balanced, with hoppiness being neither too subdued nor too potent. One of the best pilseners Iíve had.

Growler thanks to Dickinsonbeer at his gathering. Clear, bright golden/yellow color with a small white head. Nice floral hop aroma with a lot of biscuity malts. Flavor was somewhat grassy(in a good way), lightly bitter with again some floral notes to the hops. Really nice malt backbone that had a beautiful, crisp, clean finish. Excellent pils.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2007
On tap at Hop Devil Grill. Nice yellowish gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet and rich grains, you can tell teh malts are of the highest of quality. Theres a mild crispness to balance it all out. This is an amazing beer and all I kept thinking while savoring this nectar is "this is the best pils Iíve ever had". Kudos to everyone that had a hand in the making of this liquid gold. I couldnt find a single flaw.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 On tap at the Publick House. Pours a clear medium gold with a thin, sudsy head that held on through the entire pint. Light, slightly fruity aroma. Initially, some light fruit also in the flavor. Midway there is the flavor of unsalted saltine crackers with some pine notes at the finish. Crisp and a bit dry, but still fairly smooth. Probably one of the best pilseners I have had to date.
