COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps oí 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 Jacksonís 500 Classic Brews

I wasnít very impressed with this beer at all and donít really see its high rating. There was not much on the nose and no real taste to it. Oh well to each thier own

Wow I donít get this beer at all. Pours Pee yellow in the glass. Very little head to it. Nose is very weak, coming off overly sweet. Attack is dominated by the taste of water. Finish is bitter and and unbalanced. Maybe I just got a bad one?

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Figured I would take a chance on this. oops. Great grassy aroma for a pilsner but everything else is still pilsner. Just o.k.

Clear pale gold pilsner, smells skunked. Thin head. The taste is a little bit bitter which is nice but also quite metallic. Not bad really, tastes much like a Mexican beer to tell you the truth. Modelo maybe. It is OK but forgettable.

Very clear with just a slight aroma of straw. Flavor is very basic pilsner but then the hops are very overwellming.

Beerdedone (2663) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and yeast. Flavor is smooth with a bitter finish. Ok didnít like the finish.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is malt and slightly citrus. Flavor is the same and a little metallic & skunky. Iím not a big fan of pilseners anyway.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2006
This beer is hops throughout. Both aroma and flavor are loaded with them. There is some fruit in the aroma and some bitterness in the flavor as well. It is pretty much a rock solid pilsner but probably got points deducted for being one. That is not one of my favorite styles.

Poured a very vibrant, almost neon yellow. Very little or no head. Extremely hoppy aroma, sharp grassy scent as well. Reminds me a bit of St. Pauli Girl in aroma. Mouthfeel was very bubbly; high carbonation indeed. Taste was grassy and slightly citrus-like. Not my cup of beer, so to speak, but well-made I suppose. Left a very scratchy sore throat as a reminder of why I usually donít drink light German-style beers.
