COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

12oz bottle received in a trade with pjk33 - Thanks Pat! - Pours a beautiful deep golden color with a nice 1/2 inch white foamy head and a load of carbonation bubbles rising to the top throughout. Absolutely beautiful to look at.. Aroma is of a grassy meadow a touch of alfalfa and some light grains. Flavor is quite hoppy for a pilsner. Very grassy and natural tasting. Some light grains, a little dough, a bit o honey, and a touch of citrus at the end before the nice dry finish. On the palate this is crisp and clean and a real thirst quencher. I’m not usually a big fan of this style but this one is tasty.. This is the best pilsener I’ve tried and would be a regular summer beer for me if it was sold here in Ohio. Outstanding..

Medium golden with a nice white head. Crisp and hoppy nose. Taste is front of the mouth hops. Body is smooth, fluid and indistinct. Finish is crisp and clean. Hops are bold and in my opinon, a bit much.

After the overwhelming sweetness of a DD Stille Nacht, this overwhelmingly dry pils balances out well. Tastes like a tough piece of bread. An enjoyable pils to be sure, and a perfect representation of the style.

Bottle. Pours a clean golden color with a medium sized, white, foamy head. Nose is straw and hay, with some fresh grasses and yeast thrown in. Taste is very fresh with some light malts and straw, finishing very clean and crisp.

jb (2901) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Had at Rohrbach’s summer brew fest on draft. Not positive this was the pils they brought. No aroma, heavy hops in the palate, typical of the german style, watery finish.

Bottle. Clear light golden color with a short lasting, nice looking head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Bitterness is most pronounced in the flavor. Not my favorite style but a nice beer nonetheless.
