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.

Color is a very, very light gold, fluffy white head dissipated rapidly. Aroma held just a hint of hops. Flavor was subtle on the malt with a nice hoppy finish. Well done pilsner.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Pils mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, grasig. Geschmack herb, grasig, minimal würzig.

This is a nice Bavarian pilsner that is slightly dry and hoppy rather than sweet like any in this category. This would not appeal to me on a regular basis, but it is a nice summer change of pace.

Clear yellow with good white foam head, lacing. Aroma is like a good Germany pilsener, taste is likelwise, nice hoppy. Aftertaste is dry, longer lasting. (Yaroslavl 201304)

Tastes like cold stream water running over rocks. Crisp & refreshing. Would be a great breakfast cereal. One or two to get the day started.

Tap. Wanted something lighter and enjoyed this. Looks like beer should look. Smells lightly of cereal plus honey plus maybe lemon. Nice light balanced flavor ending on the hoppy side. Light, fairly carbonated, light hop finish.

Incredibly crisp lager. Pours a clean and clear light gold with a frosty, fizzy head. Tastes of "beer"... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
