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

Bottle poor, minimal head and decent lacing. A very bitter pilsner that is crisp. I would recommend it if you wanted to try a different style of pilsner.

Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours light golden, with a medium white head. Aroma is clean noble hops, light malts. Flavor is much the same. Very clean taste, nice light spice through the hop/malt balance. Slightly bitter, just right. I love this one.

Cereal and hoppy. A lot going on with this one, cant really put my finger on it. Dry, pleasantly bitter, lasting finish.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2004
Aroma: Noble hop aroma (Saaz) and pale malt in the nose. Very clean as it should be. Appearance: White head when poured, which quickly disappeared. Looked like a flat lager after it set for awhile, no head held at all. Clarity is very good, gold color. Flavor: Hop flavor in the forefront supported by a toasty malt flavor which is just too lip-smacking good. Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, with a crisp hop bitterness that is refreshing. Overall: One of my favorite beers, I'm glad this is offered year round.

Pours a hazy straw color with a small off white head. The aroma is of grassy and citrus hops along with bready malt. Taste is minimal on the malt side with a big hoppy bitterness. Drinkability is very good.

aetheon (85) - The Gutter, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 hazy light golden yellow, white head and light lacing. nice aroma with the hops coming thru, Flavors are mostly moderatly strong hops and a fairly clean finish. medium bodied with notes of pine, grapefruit and lime. Overall a decent pils with a little extra bite. - Addendum: after drinking this a few more times it has become perhaps my favorite pils, and I am upgrading the score from 3.1 to 3.5

Aroma of hay, citrus,spice, Hopped nicely so that it has a good bite without much bitterness. Lightly sweet, clean finish with a little spicy bite. Fizzy and refreshing. This is a very good beer.

Lots of hops, and a little bitter. A pretty good beer, but nothing amazing.

PolakPorter (83) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Quality to be sure. Pushes the pils to the limit. Not exactly what I was expecting considering the high rating. Hops are grassy and subtle. Not over the top at all. Taste is light yet satisfying. This did not take long to drink, 5 or 10 minutes or so. Quite quaffable. Not a ber that I would ever seek out, but may try again when I’m older and have diminished taste buds. Overall, great for a lager, but just not my style. Doesn’t compare to a good hoppy ale.

Some hoppy aroma and typical pils sulfury notes. Color is light golden with thin white head. Flavor is bitter with some metallic tastes. Not as much malt character as I would like to taste. I’m not a fan of pils so don’t take this rating too harshly.
