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.

Straw gold. Bursting foamy head. I’m not sensing much aroma, except a small amount of hops. A little hop bite. Watery crisp finish. Just OK.

A bit of lemon-nutmeg is the first thing that hits my nose, but it’s not very strong. A very clean and clear light straw yellow color sits beneath a thin solid white head. This beer has a very mild taste, starting with just a little bit of sweet malt and just a little bit of of lemony bitter hop finish. A pretty easy beer, nothing special, but good. Save it for friends that enjoy light pilsners without too much of a challenge to their taste buds.

Pale golden. Dryish, bitter and clean. Does not match the better German pilseners in crispness and intensity.

Nice color and decent head and lace for a pils. Slightly sour/skunk aroma. Decent taste and clean finish.

Srawclored, good frothy head. Nice aromatic hop nose. Lightbodied and dry, but with a excellent ballance.

I agree with olympian: this is the Pils of Pilsners. It has the absolute true taste of mild hops with certain aftertaste that makes you want more. I had mine out of the bottle, and the head wasn’t great, but the lacing was perfect and the taste great! If these were cheaper, I would keep a keg in my frisge!

A good Pils - absolutely true to type. In bottles, a draw with Warsteiner. But Warsteiner isn’t as good on draft - haven’t had this on draft, as of yet.

Pale straw color with a large foamy head. Lightly sour aroma with some hops. Surprisingly rich flavor with soft malts and lightly tingly hops.

not much aroma, not much flavor, w/ an unpleasant finish. Pass

Pretty clear yellow-gold color. Mild, fizzy head, diminishing quickly. Aroma fairly mild; suggestive of wheat, perhaps? Pleasant flavor, though not as hoppy as I might have expected. Feels good in my mouth; not too carbonated. A nice beer, but not really a standout. I’d probably like it more if I were a fan of pale beers.
