COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottom fermented pilsner style beer. Very elegant, pale in color, dry and hoppy. Its crisp clean taste is due to the extra fine Bavarian hops.

EithCubes (4904) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle by 11.2012. Very grassy nose, lightly dusty. Pours clear yellow with a sudsy off-white head. Taste is very juicy, good noble hop presence with low and lightly metallic bitterness, no citrus but the pale malt makes up for it (this is like a highly hoppy Helles). Sweetish start but dries out, light body is soft.

(bottle) pours a clear pale yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of floral hops and citrus fruits, very fragrant, with a hint of pale malts, straw and white chocolate. flavour is mostly the same, floral hops and a hint of lime, slightly barnyardy, with notes of straw and an assertive bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation. surprisingly good.

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
The regular 500ml bottle, best before Jan 2012, poured into two Veltins badged stemmed tulip glasses during Oct 2011. The review was also taken with a Spaten Munchner Hell (a blind tasting, not knowing until afterwards which was which). Lighter than the Hell and slightly more bitter, it is a typical German Pilsner and has nothing to put it above most of them: it’s clean, crisp and clear just like all the rest. Mr average in every aspect when compared to its rivals.

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Moderate grass balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

UDBeernut (1720) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at the dutch A: straw yellow, small head with impressive retention S: malt, grass T: malt sweet followed by light grass and skunk. Not an overly clean pilsner M: light, crisp O: not a bad beer, wish it didn’t have skunk. I doubt das germans would be happy. Serving type: on-tap

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draft at Laschet’s. Pours a pale gold with a fluffy white head. Remarkably clear. Nose is full of pils malt, distinct herbal noble hopping. Really clean and crisp nose. On tasting, sharp bitterness that is well balanced by bread pils malt. Quite clean and refreshing, though not a ton going on in there. Still, good beer.
