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

Thanks to Darkover for the trade. This is one of the better Pilseners I have tried (along with Schell), and leads me to wonder why so many other ones are so bland and tiresome. The beer is a lightly cloudy pale gold color with medium white head that lingered quite awhile. Lots of small bubbles and thin lacing. The aroma is zesty hops. Light-bodied and crisp with a peppery hops flavor throughout. Some malt is evident as well. The finish is dry and hoppy. The Pils style is nowhere near my favorite but I can see this beer being the standard by which to measure others.

golden straw body, adequate carbonation, a tight, glossy white head. nice musty/earthy hop nose, dry grains and a hint of alcohol. fairly strong for a pils, very hoppy for one, at least initially. It then sweetens and dries a bit. somewhat oily. not necessarily what I'm looking for in the best pilsner around.

Very clean pilsner. Very good. Had it off a fresh keg and it was so good. Very crisp and refreshing. Hoppy. Light in color. Pours with a nice head. Pleasant.

A very pineapple color to it with a nice head of foam. Why oh must you snoop through the hood like every body from the hood is up to no good. word.Has a boring weak ass wannabe belgian aroma. Good beer, refreshing and worthy.

Aroma of mild sweet malt and soft floral hops. Taste of doughy malt and soft floral hops. Nice palate not to thin.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 Golden color with the typical white foamy head of a pilsner. The flavor, however, is not typical at all. It has the crisp hoppiness of a US pale ale, with a nice smooth maltiness underneath. A great beer; by far the best pilsner I've ever had.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 12 oz bottle poured a crystal clear golden color with a nice head, storm of bubbles, and very nice lace. The aroma is very hoppy and flowery. The flavor is very hoppy and has a solid malt backbone. Almost a buttery flavor in there somewhere. The palate is perfect. This is good.

Alas, one of the world’s finest Pilsners in my eager hand! Color is a very thin and golden-yellow, and depending on how the light hits it, shades of peach show also. Interestingly enough, a couple of sediment pieces are hovering near the bottom of the glass. The head is white, medium-full, and short-lived. Smell is on par, with a light hoppy odor. Taste starts off very bitter, dry and hoppy then becomes balanced by a sensible amount of fruit sweetness (pear and peach come to mind). My only gripe is that the aftertaste reminds me of skunked Heineken the longer you let it go. Other than that, this is an easy drinking, well-hopped, flavorful Pils that is certainly worthy of its high-ranking. Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle purchased from Total Wine and Beverage in Mclean, VA

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 Pours a slightly hazy yellow. Huge head, very hoppy aroma. Crisp and clean flavor, great hop presence and good malt balance. Fantastic!
