I think this is an extremely under-rated beer. I never liked pilsners (or any lagers for that matter) and purposely avoided this brew. Finally, a neighbor coaxed me into trying this superb beer. I've gotta tell you that I think I this as good or better than Hop Devil!

First thing that hits you are hops. Then comes flavors of honey and pine.Nice strong even carbonation thats not overwelming. Very Nice.

Nice large white head. I agree with people’s comments that the hops are quite floral, which actually makes for an OK pilsener. Not my favorite style, but i still find it crisp and refreshing.

Pours a very light golden yellow. High amounts of bubbles. Retains a good head. Aroma is a delightful German pilsner. Tastes like a hefty bitter hops. A very crisp finish. A nice beer.

Bottle. Bright, Clear Yellow with a small white head. Crisp hops dominating the smell and taste, but not overly bitter. Floral, citrus, spicy. Good malty finish, dry and bitter. Replaces Christoffel as my favourite Pils!

I usually don’t care much for hoppy brews, but this one’s spicey pinesap punch really appealed to me. Good clean distinguishable and distinguished malts, too.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somwhat hazy honey-gold. Very nice lacing.
Aromas are quite herbal.
Feels soft on the palate, but it does have energy, with plenty of subtle malts and a pleasant citrus/herb hop profile. The finish is the most attention-grabbing aspect in its length and impressive bitterness.
A great balance of flavor intensity with drinkability.

Every time I’ve had this beer it tasted like it was skunked. I’ve given it four chances and decided that this must be the taste? I do taste some good pilsener qualities in there but they seemed to be outweighed. Could it really be just a skunky tasting beer? Maybe I’m just not experienced enough to enjoy this beer? No more...No thanks.
