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

Draught at Churchkey. Very light body, well balanced, but overall an uninteresting and rather ordinary beer.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Das ziemlich hopfige Pils weist Getreidenoten auf, die später hinter der Grasigkeit zurückfallen. Erst später wird das Bier bitter und weist typische Pilselemente auf, durch den vollmudigen Hopfen, der alle Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht, wirkt das Bier schon wie ein mildes IPA. Die durchgängig vorhandene Herbe ist ebenfalls eher wenig im Mittelpunkt, aber um einiges intensiver als die bitteren Noten. Mal was Anderes! 7/9/9/8/10/9

brokensail (9948) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Excellent nose of floral and spicy hops along with biscuit and bready malts. A touch of yeast with some light esters. Plenty of citrus peel and even a light earthiness. The flavor is crisp and dry. Nice cracker and biscuit malt notes balanced by the citrus zest, floral, and spicy hop flavors. A touch more bitter than you’d normally expect from a pilsener, though. Very clean and well balanced.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle and Draught, many times at many places. This has got to be one of the best Pilseners. Pours a clear, light yellow with a modest, fizzy white head. Great aroma of straw, floral hops and mild malts. Flavor has light sweetness, but some very crisp, grassy hops. Light in body with fine, quenching carbonation. Finishes with some sweetness, but lots of dryness and hops. Excellent.

imdownthepub (9668) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Yellow gold with white head. Very impressive Pilsener, there is a good solid initial maltiness, not grainy but nice and biscuity, sharp, then the main show is plenty of lemony, citric hops, quite oily butflavoursome. Lots of bitterness, surprisingly so in this type of beer. Really pretty enjoyable, i’d love to try it on a hot summers evening, but we don’t get many of them.
