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

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

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

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.

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.

Pours golden color with a snow white head that disappears quickly. Some citrus and hay in the nose. Crisp hoppy taste, not long on sweetness or bitter. Fizzy carbonation and a crisp, slightly astringent finish.

This bottle was dated best by dec 11. That got me a little annoyed as I didn’t see it til home. That said it actually held up well. Aroma is a mess but I can attribute that to being 5 months past it’s prime. Taste was awesome. Dominated by floral hops. Very herbal, some jasmine and some citrus and minimal malt. Some funk but not bad considering age. Definitely trying this fresh. The only hoppy beer my girlfriends ever somewhat liked.

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.

Aroma fresh and mild. Amber body with a thick, creamy head. Light and lively palate with a hoppy, bitter taste.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. The simple flavor is refreshing, but it’s still complicated enough to be interesting.
