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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
