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

This one pours out golden-orange and the aroma is of a floral perfume. The white head disappears quickly leaving a small lacing on the glass. The flavor is hoppy bitter citrus and leaves you with a dry lingering hoppy finish. I enjoyed this one very much. Try it.

(bottle) Hazy gold with nice white head. Floral hops aroma. Flavor is mostly hops and a distinct flavor of raspberry.

Smells pilsy. Looks pilsy. "Heaps o’ hops?" How about "Smattering of Saaz?" Must admit that the creamy (dangerously smooth finishing) mouthfeel of this brew is the only thing keeping it away from the pee-water brews most ratebeerians detest. Okay warm-weather session, for swilling while jumping off a pontoon boat, but I wouldn’t try to muscle this past any serious northern-latitude drinker in the middle months of winter.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2007 Massive white head that will not disiipate and forms Alps-like structures, yellow in a pilsner glass. Slightly hoppy, sweet aroma. Very hoppy flavor profile, a bit sweet with hints of dark fruits. Complex. Finishes in balance of bitterness and light caramel. Was looking for a world class American pilsner and found it. Wonderful.

A superior Pilsner which tastes like the perfect combination of hops and malt. Flavor is very full and smooth on the palate. Highly enjoyable.

Good clean taste with not too much hops and not too much malt. An easy drinking beer that the masses should look for more often.

Great color, nice foamy head that is lasting. Taste is honey, citrus and hops, simple but nice. Very nice pils.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 My second rating of this beer was an improvement. It’s amazing what freshness does for a beer. Beautiful color and ample head. Aroma of noble hops and malt. A well hopped bitterness backed up by good maltiness and fullness of palate. This is a fine example of a German Pils that is no pansy.

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Figured I would take a chance on this. oops. Great grassy aroma for a pilsner but everything else is still pilsner. Just o.k.
