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.

BlackHaddock (3183) - 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 (10085) - 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 (1478) - Near Buffalo, New York, 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.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2011
33cl bottle. Golden colour with white head, persistent and frothy. Aroma is fresh malty with sweet notes. The flavour has notes of hops and malts, with a final moderate bittery, resultanting a good balanced beer. Carbonation is medium, body is medium-high and texture is oily.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 (Bottled) Excellent Pils; bready malts, grassy hops, unassuming sweetness meshing with dryness. good’un.
re8 I like this and must give props with a point more for its easy to sink effervescence ...its refreshing reminder as to why I like Pilseners.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Tap with lunch today at the Dutch. Grassy nose. Heavier on sweet malt. Moderat body. More German than Bohemian as to the lesser hop ratio. Great with the crab cake salad special. Decent.
