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

Not much aromatics to speak of. Mild sweet maltiness and hay in the body with an earthy noble hop finish. An OK beer, good for a pilsner I suppose, but it’s just not my style.

12 oz bottle. Bought it with good intensions. I wanted to have another good victory. This one was not as good as the others. Poures a light head and golden yellowish body. Grass and light hops are present. Good, not great.

From unclemattie via trade. Thanks! The pour was golden in color and slightly turbid. A fizzy, one-finger plus tall head formed and provided decent lacing. The aroma was tart lemon initially, with spicy saaz hops coming in and trying to offer some balance. The flavor was sharp, tart citrus with only a bit of the expected spicy hops coming through. The mouthfeel was thin and the finish was clean. I think this one was a tad past its prime. Would love to try it fresh on tap as it seems to have plenty of underlying potential.

Pours a light golden yellow. Body is light with a light mouthfeel. The skunky hop content is quite a bit of a surprise. One of the better light beers around.

I enjoyed this, but I felt it was a very average pilsener. It was better than normal, but not above. It smelled of some like hops and it tasted like every pilsener I’ve ever had that didn’t taste like asshole.

(Sample from July 18, 2008 Beer Club Meeting) Super light pale yellow color. Aroma... like rubber gloves? What the heck? Taste is skunky and yet interesting. Light, though. Very floral, not as hoppy as I expected. Tastes almost like I’m licking surgical soap, but it’s still good if that makes any sense.

Very good for a pilsener. Golden, light foamy head etc. Just like you’d want and expect from a pilsener. At first the flavor is very, very bitter. Then it eases up and gains complexity. Light and refreshing. I usually drink heavy, dark beers, and drinking this cold on a hot day is a good way to enjoy it.

12 oz. into pint glass. Light golden with pretty big-bubbled carbonation; pretty creamy white head. Aroma is very light, smells like pale malt with just a dirty little hint of hops. Flavor is very soft too, with not much going on. Just refreshing with a descent resiny hop presence on the finish – definitely more so than most other pilsners. Pretty dry finish, no alcohol. Light to medium bodied on the palate – more body than I expected from the style. Crisp. Overall: one of the better pilsners I have had, but Clipper City’s Uber Pilsner is way better. Still, this is a great example of its style and is definitely a refreshing un-flawed beer that’s great for the summer.

I tried this a few months ago but the beer was over a year expired. This time, the beer was only 3 months expired so I am working my way up. Aroma was slightly hoppy and with a hint of czech spice. Flavor was again slightly hoppy, smooth, and an easy drink. Not a bad brew at all but nothing I would write home about.
