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

Transfer from BA review on 10-6-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden colored brew with huge white head. The head has great retention, eventually fading to give a lighter level of lacing. Smell – The smell is a mix of a grainy and a light grapefruit citrus. Beyond that there is a small amount of a pine hop smell. Taste – The taste starts out of a malty grain flavor with some light sweetness. As the taste advances, some lemon and a grapefruit hop flavor come to the tongue. These two tastes (grapefruit and lemon) intensify as the taste moves on, although they never get too strong. In the end the hop, combined with the wheat and a newly arriving bitter earthy and grassy hop flavor, create a dry, bitter, wheat flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on light to medium side with a carbonation level that was on the average side. Both were quite nice as they suited the dry flavors and transitions well as well as made for a very drinkable brew. Overall – A nice refreshing, bitter beer.

Served on tap. Clear pale gold with a frothy white head which yields to copious lacing. Herbal hops dominate the aroma. Taste is made up of slight sweet orange with a dry hoppy finish. Feel is smooth and slightly astringent. Good.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow with an average, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Mild aroma of hops, citrus and hay. Mild, sweet flavour of citrus, hay and a dry, hoppy, bitter finish. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Pretty good for a pilsner.

From bottle to mug unfortunately. Nice sweet lightly hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy with fluffy white head. Really nice focus in the hops just sweet enough to balance. Nice beer.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
A well carbonated golden yellow pilsner that pours with a giant white head that fades quickly. A big hop aroma spicy and floral sits atop a nice understated malt bill. Brace yourself for this one. Big hop flavor flavor from the start with this one. Finishes clean and dry, refreshing. To me it seems as it warms up the flavor seems to flatten out and gets watery. A big bold beer none the less. Drink well my friends

Draught & bottle hand over fist, left & right. Currently, drinking pre Randall’s island Phish ferry. Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma is hay, grains, faint lemon drop. Flavor is crisp clear pale malt with some floral hop. Light body & refreshing taste, drinkable & quaffable! Crispy & dry hop finish. Great Pils

This yellow beer has a white undertone. It has a hop and spice aroma. It has as a full rich spicy flavor with subtle hints of lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
