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

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a very pale yellow with a thick and lasting white head. Aroma is a mix of citrus and a lot of hops. Initial taste is a light mix of malt and citrus with a strong hop followup and a slightly spicy finish.

Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head. Nose is full of lemon zest and hops. Nice tingly mouthfeel. Light malts with lemon and hops on the tongue. Nice dry and peppery finish. This was one good pilsener!

Clear golden color with a meduim frothy white head. Light hoppy aroma. Fairly hoppy flavor, with a little malt, pepper, and yeast. A good pilsner.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Large creamy white head, fully lasting with good lacing. Great clear yellow body. Crisp fresh aroma of slightly musty lemon, and pear. A little malt sweetness at the start and middle with some bitter lemon orange taste. Finishes with a dry bitterness. Texture is creamy and body is just right (not too light). I really liked the beer... nicely rounded taste made it enjoyable to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2010 Bearing in mind that I generally do not care for Pilseners my fondness of this beer stands out. ...... Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. There is a crisp floral hop aroma with undertones of citrus. The flavor is initially mild with a sweet flowery taste that seems to just swirl around the tongue and provide a brief sour/malty aftertaste. One of the best pilseners I have ever tasted - but not so much as to make me much of a drinker of this style.

Wow!! This is either #1 or #2 for the best domestic Pils that I have Tasted!! Great hop aroma, (probably Saaz, maybe Hallertau)edgy but soft at the same time.Just the nicest head that I have seen on a craft Pils! Beautiful finish, I could drink this every day and still totally enjoy it! Great job, Bill!!

hoppy and piney. thin. bitterness in the finish reminds me of tea that's been steeped for too long. it's refreshing and easy to drink. best consumed with chips.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2004
12 oz bottle, pils flute. Light bread, toasted grain malt (M); flowery, grassy hops (M). Straightforward pils aroma (read tasty). Blossoming, creamy, frothy, tall, white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep golden-orange body. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a moderately bitter finish. Medium-light body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: so this is what a fresh pils tastes like!

Beautiful golden color, terrific hop nose. Everything that I like in a pils. Nice malt/hop balance. Wish I had it on tap at home.
