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

12oz bottle poured into pilsner glass. Beer is clear, bright golden yellow with a white two-finger head that drops down some, but hangs on for the duration. Sticky lacing clings in patches to the glass. Aroma is more assertive than typical pilsners with herbal and citrus hop notes underpinned by bready malt. Taste follows the nose - strong spicy, herbal bitterness with light bread and grainy malt sweetness. Surprisingly medium in body, light and crisp texture, lively carbonation, long bitter finish.

Pours a clear straw, lots of carbonation feeding a thin bubble head. Very nice, wholesome hops aroma. Very clean and fizzy mouthfeel, friendly hops flavor with a malty follow-through. Slight hops aftertaste with a slight sticky residue.

CacheManyHose (198) - HONG KONG - OCT 19, 2014
From Bottledog in London. Pale translucent gold-green with watery white head. Smells of crisp malt - cereal, biscuit and lots of sweet-ish corn. Nose is characteristic for a pils and quite flavourful. Tastes of slight spiced malt, lemon, relatively heavy bitterness, some straw and cereal. Body is light and somewhat frothy but with a little bit of slickness to balance it. A solid pils with plenty of sweet malt and grassy/straw hops.

HKdIPA (256) - HONG KONG - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog in London at home. Clear golden Pilsner pour with dense white frothy head. Aroma is earthy, biscuit, spicy hops - sweeter, fuller Pilsner. Taste is spicy hops, then an unexpected sweet biscuit-y flavor. Clean bitter finish. Not as much hops as I expected but a good Pilsner nonetheless. Sweetness is a surprise, but fills out the palate nicely. Solid pils.

Bottle to Pils glass. Pours clear to cloudy light yellow with thin head. Subtle bread malt aroma. Hoppey taste almost like a Pale Ale. Leaves a dry finish in the mouth.

"a hop forward pils with a nicely balanced boquet of earthy hops and malt. not as clean, but more to it than your average pilsner. a nice summer beer, refreshing. well done. sampled 3/21/09, best by 3/9/09 - must be amazing fresh if it’s this good old. better than the hop devil with the same date."

EyeAmBaldman (269) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours clear light yellow witha thin white head. Aroma is nearly non-existent. Subtle malts on the nose. Medium carbonation in the mouth with an aggressive hop taste. Very hippy for a pilsner. Almost tastes like a pale ale. Very good!

Maxbier (313) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Golden with white head. Frosted breakfast cereal and orange peel citrus. Flavor; mild but present hop, some bitter, nice malt flavor and long dry finish. Distinctly pilsner. Very nice.

fiveacestx (604) - Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle to pils glass - Nice golden color with good head retention and lacing. Has a nice eggshell aroma and a grassy dry taste. I’m not a huge pils fan but I would have been shocked had this beer been less than a score of 95. This is one that I would definitely look for again.

Padron4KM (540) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pale golden straw with some chill haze. A fluffy, sticky, white, long lasting head, and chunky lace.
Aroma is bready malts and spicy hops.
Flavor is hoppy up front, with a touch of bready malt and a peppery finish.
