COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours hazy golden with a nice white head and tons of lacing. The aroma is a complex mix between citrus and grain.

Rangi (594) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 21, 2014
Very clear straw appearance with minimal head and minimal carbonation. Over all found this to be nicely Bready and sweet but at the same time a easily drinkable refreshing beverage.

geeklimit (196) - USA - OCT 20, 2014
Pours a clear straw, lots of carbonation feeding a thin bubble head. Very nice, wholesome hops aroma. Very clean and fizzy mouthfeel, friendly hops flavor with a malty follow-through. Slight hops aftertaste with a slight sticky residue.

CacheManyHose (199) - HONG KONG - OCT 19, 2014
From Bottledog in London. Pale translucent gold-green with watery white head. Smells of crisp malt - cereal, biscuit and lots of sweet-ish corn. Nose is characteristic for a pils and quite flavourful. Tastes of slight spiced malt, lemon, relatively heavy bitterness, some straw and cereal. Body is light and somewhat frothy but with a little bit of slickness to balance it. A solid pils with plenty of sweet malt and grassy/straw hops.

HKdIPA (258) - HONG KONG - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog in London at home. Clear golden Pilsner pour with dense white frothy head. Aroma is earthy, biscuit, spicy hops - sweeter, fuller Pilsner. Taste is spicy hops, then an unexpected sweet biscuit-y flavor. Clean bitter finish. Not as much hops as I expected but a good Pilsner nonetheless. Sweetness is a surprise, but fills out the palate nicely. Solid pils.

RichCityBrewer (5) - richmond, Kentucky, USA - OCT 15, 2014 does not count
Bottle to Pils glass. Pours clear to cloudy light yellow with thin head. Subtle bread malt aroma. Hoppey taste almost like a Pale Ale. Leaves a dry finish in the mouth.

slowrunner77 (5975) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"a hop forward pils with a nicely balanced boquet of earthy hops and malt. not as clean, but more to it than your average pilsner. a nice summer beer, refreshing. well done. sampled 3/21/09, best by 3/9/09 - must be amazing fresh if it’s this good old. better than the hop devil with the same date."

EyeAmBaldman (270) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours clear light yellow witha thin white head. Aroma is nearly non-existent. Subtle malts on the nose. Medium carbonation in the mouth with an aggressive hop taste. Very hippy for a pilsner. Almost tastes like a pale ale. Very good!

Maxbier (316) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Golden with white head. Frosted breakfast cereal and orange peel citrus. Flavor; mild but present hop, some bitter, nice malt flavor and long dry finish. Distinctly pilsner. Very nice.

fiveacestx (604) - Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle to pils glass - Nice golden color with good head retention and lacing. Has a nice eggshell aroma and a grassy dry taste. I’m not a huge pils fan but I would have been shocked had this beer been less than a score of 95. This is one that I would definitely look for again.
