COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure pils pleasure with a juicy jolt... Our latest single hop varietal pils features a fresh twist. A very fresh twist as whole flower hops went from the vine to the kettle in a mere 10 hrs. giving the beer a snap of freshness that has to be tasted to be believed. In ’wet hopped’ beers such as this, the hops are full of fresh oils that dissipate when the hops normally dried. These essential oils give Braumeister Harvest Pils the clean, spicy hop aromas you’d expect from a pristine pilsner, followed by the long, satisfying mouthfeel full of flavorful hop depth and substance. All this flavor yields to clean malt and a crisp finish.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2008 Rerate, Draft @ Frisco’s. Pours a hazy, golden-yellow color; fluffy bright white head with solid retention and lacing. Lots of grassy and mineral hops in the aroma; a touch of white grapes. Perfect mouthfeel: dry, dense mineral hoppiness, with some citrus and lime zest; toasty malt and cereal core; intensely drinkable and refreshing. Medium, toasty finish: cereal, mineral hops, and a touch of herbal bitterness.

Growler. Pours a clear yellow color; fluffy, white head with good retention and great lacing. Light, herbal and grassy aroma. Lively carbonation. Medium, creamy mouthfeel: pleasant levels of sugar and vanilla and citrus hops; very drinkable and tasty. Medium, sugar and citrus finish; nice crisp hoppiness. 7.4.7.4.15=3.7

Draught: Slightly bitter aroma. Smells of hops, with floral and citrus notes, was well as of pils malts. Poured golden in color with a big white head. Good lacing. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Flavor was moderately bitter. Tasted primarily of Pils malts and citrusy hops with a hint of lemon. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Dry, bitter finish. Another good Victory Pils.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 On draft at Issac Newton’s with Mad Indian. Pours golden with a huge white pillow of a head. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malts, and slight bread. The flavor is mildly bitter, bready, and a little thin.

Tried ths draft beer at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte, NC. Pale golden in color, clear with a good head. Grainy or grassy aroma with some Czech hops, maybe.Good malt flavor and lots of hops. Thicker than most pilsners. Dry and very crisp aftertaste.

OldGrowth (2757) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Pint at Tyler’s Carrboro. With TURDFERGUSON. Good aroma, grassy, yeasty/bready. Tad hazed yellowy golden color, nice head that faded quickly, decent lacing. Bitter flavor. Like aroma basically. Emphasis on the grassy part wih a sweet streak about it. Lite body, watery mouthfeel, smooth litely bitter finish. Tasty, but I didn’t really enjoy it in the scheme of things.

draft at the Blue Dog. Good zesty arom and a great look with thin head until the end. Very good flavor that is well balanced with a flavor of lemon zest and plenty of hops. Smooth and made me want more.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Draught at Blue Dog Chalfont. Clear shiny golden body with a pillowy white head. Fresh pils malt nose with honeydew and bright floral hop tones. Crisp, semi-dry hoppy flavor with good pils malt backing. Spicy, dry finish, but malt quality lingers through. A very nicely balanced and well-dialed-in keller pils. Very quaffable and cravable.

Slight haze on a golden beer with a fluffy white head. Spicy hops dominate the aroma with a hint of black pepper. Brighter hop flavor than most pilseners I’ve had. I was surprised to learn that this was a single hop beer as it doesn’t seem one dimensional at all. Grassy finish with a hint of lemon peel. Very good!

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2006 On tap at Tyler’s as part of their Pint Night promotion. In the presence of Tom, aka OldGrowth. Quite the pleasure, Tom. Pour was a very clear yellow-cant remember the last time I’ve had a beer this color in a glass. Smell is musty, funky hops. Flavor is similar, moderately bitter with resinous wet hops abounding. Pretty good, and a great example of the style I guess, but still just not my thing.

First of all, if I was a rapper my name would be Braumeister Pils. Secondly, this beer is awesome...for a lager. I had this on tap and it is quite delicious. Even got some specks of yeast in the glass. Not sure that there was much aroma and what there was was typical of a well crafted pils. The flavor is subtle but totally complete. It was moderately malty with a fair amount bitterness. I noticed the malt more than the hops, actually. I kept comparing the flavor to that of popcorn. buttery and sweet on the palate and crisp, dry, and bitter on the finish.
