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.

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

crdic (105) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2002
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.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 Clear golden color with a decent white foamy head that sticks to the sides of the glass, light bready and flowery aromas, balanced malt and hop flavors, light to medium body with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, all in all not a bad pils, well done.

pilsner is not my style - but this one has a enough body / strength to make it good. very snappy. good hot day beer (if you don’t have a bottle of bock around that is)

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2002
Clear, golden yellow. A decent head. Nice sweet malt nose with some snappy hops evident. The taste is the same, decent pilsner malt, clean with better then average hop bite. Nothing great but a respectable pils.
