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.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Location: Draft at Hop Devil Grill, 4/10/10

Aroma: The nose is floral, grassy, earth, and some bread
Appearance: Golden color with a fluffy white head
Flavor: Taste is citrusy and bready mostly
Palate: Light-medium body, nice, thirst quenching
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid beer, but it is just missing that crisp fresh hop feel that I wanted it to have. That is only a small complaint though, overall it is pretty good stuff.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Enjoyed via draft in a pub glass. The beer pours the expected straw-colored yellow/gold of a classic pilsner. The aroma brings an interesting hop character: slight notes of lemons, slight cattyness. In addition to the hop aroma, this is just a very slight note of pilsner to the nose. The palate shows hop flavors that are similar to those found in the nose: slight note of citrus/lemon, slight danky note. Interestingly lacking is the strong sort of malt backbone that is present in a classic continental pils. Instead, the drinker gets a strong note of alcohol in the finish, which is otherwise clean, slightly dry, and moderately bitter. Overall, not a classic example of the style, but admirable in its creativity and craftsmenship.

Pours yelow with some bubbly-ness. Strong cereal taste at first followed by a faint fruit taste. After a few sips the bitterness kicks in. The crisp pils gives way to a pleasant but muddier hop taste.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2010
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham. Tastes exactly like what it is: a wet-hopped version of prima pils. Clear golden pour with bubbly little white head. Oiler, spicier, skunker hop profile than Prima. Still grassy and floral, but with more citrus and resin, and a breadier malt perhaps. Nice.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Draft at Victory. Poured translucent pale yellow in color with a thin white head that left great lacing on the glass. Aroma is a little grassy, wet grain, fruity hops notes. Tastes of caramel sweetness,lemon, light fruity hops, with a nice dry finish. Surprised the hops were as mellow as they were.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2010
On tap at The Daily Pint. Clear effervescent light golden with a two finger white head, good retention. Light aroma of grass, hay, and biscuits--not sweet, and kinda weak. Some old malts showed up after it warmed. Flavor follows suit with more bitterness than most pilseners I’ve had. Dry, bitterness at a 5. That old stale malt character is kinda gross, actually. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Not a very good pile.

ajm (1063) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Tap at Daily Pint. Nose is faintly of Hallertau hops and minerals. Flavor is full, wheaty and less faint hops. Very thin yeast character. It’s good, but it’s no Simpler Times.

jcr (2160) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Draft at Rattle N Hum, NYC. Pale gold body. White, fluffly head, slowly diminishing. Grassy, floral nose with notes of raw grain and earthiness. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Tastes of lemon and cracker. Medium, juicy body, soft texture and lively carbonation. Clean and crisp. Comfortable balance with hops in front and bready malt in the background. Very nice.

Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Draft at Tyler’s Tap Room in Apex. Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head. Flavor took me by suprise, a huge hop explosion that I did not expect. Light malt backround and a dry finish. Very clean nice bite
