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

Pale yellow with a medium head. Hops, hops, and more hops dominate the aroma and flavor. Typically, I am all for hops, but these hops taste like they were sitting in a sock drawer. It's a little on the dry side at the finish. I wanted to like it, but it just tasted like it was water that had hops sit in it for 10 minutes.

Golden color, nice head. Aroma is truly pilsner with a bit more hoppyness. The flavour od the german malts provides a strong backbone for generous hopping. Finish is dry, crisp and very drinkable. One of the world's best pilsners.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2004
UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Hazy golden yellow with a medium diminishing white head. Mostly floral aroma with hints of light bread, honey, lemon, and straw. Medium slightly creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing. Mostly bitter flavor of light bread, citrus, pepper, and some wood/pine. I usually don't like pilseners much, but this one is very good.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Pours a beautiful golden with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma is grassy, floral, grainy, herbal and a tad musky. Flavor has notes of fresh grain/pils malt , lemon, grassy noble hops and a satisfying bitter hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with lively carbonation. My everyday "go-to" pils. I love this stuff.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2004
Bottled. Hazy golden colour with dense and lacy white head. Sweet hop aroma. Moderate to strong hopy flavour with a good bitter kick to it. Bitterness attacks the palate but in a nice way.

Pours hazy deep gold with a quick dissipating head. Smells...mmmh hoppy, saaz hops all over the place with lemon and white grapes. Taste is crisp dry saaz hops and lemon. Great crisp, dry finish. Body is near perfect per style and quite refreshing. This a a brew I hold up as an example to macro-swillers that Americans actually make better lagers than the "king of beers", seriously, they need convincing sometimes. Drinkability is great and the flavor never dissapoints. This along with Hacker-Pschorr Hefe are my official lunch brews.

Fresh meadows and hops emerge from this nice golden beer topped with a thin white head. Very smooth with a nice edge to the maltiness. Touch of bitter in the lingering aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle. Nice clear golden color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a bite of hops at the end. Nice, smooth, sticks to your palate. A great Pils.

Bottle pours a translucent light yellow.   Minor milky head, good carbonation, decent lacing.   Straw and light hops on the nose.   Malty sweetness up front, gliding into a light hop palate, finishing with a clean, crisp, light, spicey, hop taste .   A very good and easy drinking Pils.   Thanks goes out to Pabobcat for the trade!
