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

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.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
0.5 l draught @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki. Very pale lager with a nice head. This has quite a lot citrus flavoured hops. Not too much, though. Taste is close to session APA. Body is quite weak, more like Helles than Pilsener.

Cimbasso (745) - - SEP 23, 2016
Sampled from a bottle at Winberies restaurant in Oak Park, Chicago. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a solid white head. Crisp flavours with a good dough-like malt taste and notes of grass and herbs. Good flavour of Czech hops giving a refreshing finish. A good non-European Pilsner. Very drinkable.

Lovely and crisp beer. Not a big PILS fan, but really enjoyed the hop character of this beer, Crisp and clean finish with a nice upfront nose

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - SEP 14, 2016
5.3%ABV. Pilsner. Poured out light gold 4ºSRM. Nose is creamy and redolent of steamed corn. Mouthfeel is light and beery. Palate has sweet pale malt with water biscuits, dough and wheat flour. There is some minerality to the palate, but very light. Hops are noble and balanced perfectly. Finish is clean with light hop bitter. Goes on Favorites List!

Not really what I look for in a pilsener, way too hoppy. But too light to enjoy as an IPA type of drink. Tolerable, but really all wrong IMO.

Classic pils aroma. Clean, short, and refreshing. Stereotypical German malt & yeast concoction. Great pilsner overall.

mezr (100) - California, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a flute. Big, fluffy white head that slowly dissipates and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Clear yellow-gold with very fine carbonation. A little citrus in the nose, otherwise malty. Medium body, great mouthfeel, soft and smooth. Well balanced, with a lightly bitter finish. A joy to drink. I don’t frequent pilsners, but this is the best that I’ve had.
