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

Underdogs88 (204) - New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2014
A good dose of flowery hops with a hint of citrus. Light grainy aroma. No Esters, DMS, or sulfur. Appearance is a brilliant straw color with a white head with average head retention. Malt flavor is grainy with some pils sweetness through the middle, but finishes dry. Hop flavor is the showcase in this beer providing hints of flower and spice with a bitterness that lingers through and after the finish. Beer is fermented clean with no fruity esters. Mouthfeel is medium-light with medium carbonation that leaves a drying resin sensation on the mouth on the end. Overall, a great American version of a German pilsner.

Not bad but nothing special either. Light aroma and a very plain taste. Still smooth and easy to drink.

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2015
Mandag i annen feb-15, den første på det som skulle vise seg å bli en kveld med bare gode (og til dels fremragende øl): klar strågul, lite skum. Lett bitterhet med akkurat passe sødme. Elegant.

Holmen2 (1436) - NORWAY - FEB 9, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 09.02.15. Pale, clear golden. White head. Fine aroma of flowerfields, grass and Czech hops. Very good and slightly fruity taste of Czech pilsner. Moderate bitterness. Very high drinkability.

madquacker (1061) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2015
Low carbonation and a daunting orange colour. Malty biscuit and salt and just a very nice all round pils. Hops are the main feature here. Well done.

Roser (43) - Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Appearance- small thin bone white head. No lacing. Clear golden hue. Lots of bubbles. Smell- clean. Floral, bready, malty. Taste- sweet floral hops up front, malts in the middle, and bitter dry finish on the back end. Mouthfeel- light body Overall- a very nice Pilsner from a rock solid brewery. Would recommend and have again. Cheers!

Sigmund (5447) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.3%. Clear golden colour, moderate to low white head. Nice aroma of floral, grassy and herbal hops, some sweetish malts in the background. Medium sweet and malty flavour, followed by distinct herbal hops. A good pilsener indeed, but some European ones are better.
