Clean and fresh, very smooth and drinkable. Lightly hopped, and a fair malt nose. Great with those Seafood dishes.

pint comes a bright, suprisingly deep, amber, with a nice white head that retains well and leaves good lace. herbaceous nose, with deep woody notes, hangs heavy over a toasty maltiness, with a light nuttiness. super tasty pils starts clean and malty, with again a bit more character (toasted) than standard pils maltiness. hops balance nicely, with cleanly spiced flavors mixing in with a good solid kick of bittering. really outstanding, with a nice, crisp kick.
gorgeous take on a pilsner, though perhaps a bit a-typical in its malt character - but who cares? it’s an awesome drinking beer. a pils made w/pale ale malt?

Willibecker pour at the brewpub. Color is dark golden/light amber. Has a sticky lacing on the surface and a visible carbonation through the body. Aroma is muted herbal hops, which are bitter and clean and a white bread maltiness behind it. Flavor is very "poppy" on the hops and still that clean white bread maltiness behind that. It is a bit heavy on the malts, or a slightly dull malt flavor for the overall structure of the beer.

Pale golden straw pour. The nose is soft and quite hoppy. Lots of light lemony Saaz hops. Fresh and dry with an assertive hop bitterness. A bit of grassy straw flavour and some light pale malt character. Surprisingly assertive pils, actually.
