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.

From the pour this beer looked anemic and boring. Poured a vewry light tan. Aroma lent nothing to the flavor. BUT the taste was great. Heavy hops and very dry. I enjoyed it a great deal. Looking forward to another.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2009
On tap at Capone’s, Norristown. Man, this was a doozy. Bright golden pour, with a nicely effervescent head. A super-crisp, super-dry pils at the base, but the superstructure (sorry) is dry, leafy hops. Full bodied, lively, and a treat to drink.

Sammy (8404) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
On tap at Cole’s. Solid German pils with other characteristic, a kellerbier label suits it well. Pours yellowish with a head. A mild pleasant pils aroma. A bit above average mouthfeel. Refreshing and bitter, its a good bitterness. A pint, without food to break it up, is too much however.

Draft at Capones. Poured a crystal clear golden body with light effervescence rising from the center of the glass and a large fluffy bright white head. Aroma was lots of fresh hops crispness with some grain and cereal. The flavor had lots of fresh hops crispness with some greeny leafy vegatbles mixed in with cereal and grain. This one was light super crisp and refreshing, good stuff.

yellow golden pour with a nice white head and lots of lacing. mild grassy aroma. Tingly (is that a word?) palate. i like hoppy beers, but for some reason this one didnt work. I got a taste of very bitter cardboard. I am going to have to come back to this one, as i do have a cold, which could be causing my taste buds to be off.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Tap at Barcade: Pours a crisp, still light golden with perfect clarity and a dense white head. Clean, bright and grassy aroma with a spicy noble hop presence and very light crackery pils notes. Crisp dry body with a very dry and bitter flavor. There’s just enough crackery pils malt at the base to support the huge heavy noble peppery bitterness- which is almost vegetal like. Probably the driest and most bitter Pilsner I’ve had to date. Fantastic!

Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. I want to start by saying my older sister, who is a wine lover and not enamoured much of beer (Molson and Labbat have a lot to answer for), LOVED this beer - and man oh man is it hoppy - I’m stunned. Poure clear light gold with an average draught white head. The aroma is solid, but sneaky - medium pungent grassy hops, a bit floral and spicy, a bit musty and a little clover-sweet. The taste - holy CRAP - huge pungent leafy/grassy bitter hop explosion - that’s it, just hops - some alcohol, and dry, but it grabs your tongue and leaves you with that "I’ve just bit into a unpeeled grapefruit" coated dry/bitter tongue - such a thick-bodied, crisp, lively mouthfeel too, and a finish that just doesn’t quit - wow: I’ve had DIPAs that are less bitter than this - well done!!!
