Enjoyed this fine pils at the new Gray Kunz restaurant at Time-Warner Center (NYC) and it was quite mild for a Euro pils. Heavily carbonated and slightly floral. Nice.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Pours a clear yellow with a white sudsy head. Fairly mild aroma, but the hops make a decent presence. The flavor is well balanced between malts & hops with a citric finish. Not too bad.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2004
An ever so slightly hazy medium gold color, sudsy long lasting head and a citrus and hay aroma. Light to medium bodied, good hop malt balance with a lemony bitterness, zesty, nice pils.

12 oz bottle: Pours literally clear in the glass, its only redeaming feature is the large foamy white head. Tastes closer to water than real beer. The bottle design makes a smooth poor impossible. Overall not a great beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Appearance: clear, nigh-unto-transparent color, a very palish shade of yellow, nearly not a color at all, redeemed by a booming, fluffy creamy white head. Aroma: soft and shy, but showing significant hops, spare, but spicy. Taste: rather light on the buds, a fairly flat flavor at first that grows on me over time. Light body, but my ever-renewing appreciation for the crisp, shiny pils character makes up for that. I find it lip-smackingly tasty before too long, then it comes cross as tinny and thin at the end. Still, a very decent middle-of-the road pils, when that’s what you yearn for.

An orange and yellow haze settled into my glass. This has the strangest sediment and gelatin type junk floating that I have ever seen. Very unattractive. Has a very small head that forms as the copious amounts of bubbles quickly race to the top. The aroma is sharp mint and some lemons. I think that is the unique saaz hops. Intriguing aroma. The taste is fairly full for the style. It has grass, tobacco and a touch of a mint bite. Maybe I am the only one seeing the bite of mint, but it kees me interested. As it warms, it gets more sour. This started out great, but finishes with a cheap colby cheese flavor.

Golden color, light weak aroma, light bitter taste, light body, light bitter finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Straw gold, big head. Nose light and hoppy. Malts are mildly sweet, some berry fruitiness, a bit overly hoppy at the end for my tastes.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 11, 2004
The saaz are very noticable on this one. Solid, refreshing, and slightly boring. A nice session beer for a hot afternoon. 100% better when had in Salzburg.

Bright clear/yellow with a touch of head for about 10 seconds. Grassy hops in the nose along with a touch of skunk. Pretty light and crispy, with a touch of malt and a little bit of those grassy hops. Short crisp finish. Quite average, but not offensive.
