COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps oí 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 Jacksonís 500 Classic Brews

An above average pilsner. Very hoppy, very carbonated, fairly smooth, with a decent flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Bright and heady. Citrusy, floral, and piney nose lofts into the air. Soft, smooth, and clean. Sharp, snappy and refreshing. Bold version of a pilsner, and I really like the interpretation. Tremendously aromatic with a healthy bitterness. Well made and unbelievably tasty beer. Every time I get the chance to drink this I like it even better.

A very good classic pilsner. Itís crisp, clean, nad has a nice hoppiness, but itís maybe a bit too crisp. I prefer a slightly more noticeable finish, and this one goes down just too clean. Still, very refreshing.

Though Iím not much of a pilsner fan, this is a quality brew. Very dry and bitter at first with a sweet malt middle to balance and a big hop finish. Love that Saaz!

When I saw it, I said Iím not going to like it. Itís too light. When I tasted it, I thought it was very good. Nice flavorful, hoppy beer.

Sípose the only thing bad to say about this is the slightly less than crystal clear aspect. Not as fully hopped or heavily malted as an Urquell. Wonderful floral nose, and graceful as a gazelle going down. An excellent light-bodied American pilsner.

Nice, crisp noble hop accented pilsner.
