Starr Pils is a classic German Pilsner. This beer is crafted with Pilsner malt, German hops and Bavarian lager yeast. It is golden in color with a subtle malt backbone and noticeable hop aroma.

On tap. Light yellow color with a slick of white foam. Aroma is light toasted malt with biscuit and some background herbal hops. Taste is clean with biscuit, toasted malt, minimal sweetness, and light bitter hops. Clean mouthfeel. NIce beer.

Bright yellow, with a thin white head. Grainy, grassy hop aroma. Nicely sweet at first, then grass, biscuit, and a nice crisp hop bite. I think I’ve gotten hung up on the word "grassy" as a descriptor. I never used t use it, but now I say it all the time. Weird.

12oz bottle, thanks to Andrew. Bottled 5/21/12. Clear yellow color. Thin white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Nice, crisp lighter carbonation. Tasty peppercorn aroma. Lightly spicy hops, some multigrain malts. Definitely a spice - leaning pils, but I don’t mind that. Nice light bitter taste. Very satisfying. Would recommend. Didn’t care for the DIPA, but these Starr Hill guys make a nice pils.

Bottle brought back from the US, by a friend. 12 fluid ounces. Clear, light straw yellow. No head, just a few clumps of bubbles. Moderate carbonation. Aroma - Typical pilsner, but with some unusually fragrant, floral and lightly citrussy hops. Clean, light, lagery malt. Lightlly yeasty. Taste - As expected from aroma. Typical lager, but hoppier than usual and with more (dry) citrussy flavours. Light bitterness. Slightly dry finish, with some light noble hop aromas lingering. Medium-light body. Crisp, clean, refreshing. A decent lager, with some good hop flavours.

Aroma of malt, hops, water, metallic, light citrus. Flavor is the same. Very solid lager. Good malt presence. Love that stickiness. Clear yellow with white lacing that sticks around.

Hazy golden puor with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly straw with light lemon. Nice cereal maltiness, bread, some faint citrus. Nice, crisp finish. Pretty good pilsner, nice body and refreshing.

DATE REVIEWED: July 6, 2014... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: 4th of July yardwork and party unwinding... APPEARANCE: pale, tawny, watered-down yellow body; white head sits with an appropriate pillowy arc, then settles out as a reasonable, albeit soapy ring; sporadic, tentacle lacing... AROMA: spritzy, light pale malts suggest pilsner; some bubblegum as well, but not much more in complexity... PALATE: medium-bodied,, yet light in carbonation; a pleasant, lingering aftertaste; a good partner for post-mowing deck relaxation...in essence, a slightly uncomfortable mouthfeel... TASTE: a predictably clean, taut malt assertion; biscuity at the finish; hops are clean and balancing... OVERALLL: little distinguishes this beer from the myriads of pilsners within the genre, but that is a positive in some respects; as a fourth of a sampler, hopefully not the one to be rushed towards, but that will depend on the rest of the mix...for now, serviceable and palate-cleansing...

The aroma is standard latex - hay hops with a corn like malt and exactly to style. The appearance is golden with a clumpy head. The taste is like the aroma and yummy, The palate is average. Overall a perfect example of the style.
