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

Bottle at KØ09. OK hop aroma, weakly citric. Clear golden colour. Distinct bitterness, slightly rough and quite clean. Apart from the bitterness, it is slightly boring.

12 oz bottle. I’m not a pilsner fan but I thought this one may be able to convert me. It didn’t. Poured a light yellow with a strong white head -- not far from a cheap American macro in appearance. Taste was slightly better than the average pilsner, but not much. Grassy taste, but not a whole lot going on here. Not my thing.

Avengedpoet (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours a luminescently clear piss yellow. Still has a nice dank hop character in the aroma in spite of being a bit past its shelf life. Taste is very sparkly. Lots of carbonation. Pils malt forward. Hops have deteriorated to being quite a bit soapy/bitter and lost their floral quality. Still quite a solid pils.

I just can’t seem to get past the green taste. Semi-skunk and dry finish bothers me. Bitter flavor overall and light bread and citrus and skunk aroma.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Hazy gold with a white head. Big yeasty, peppery pale lager aromas. Medium body with a rough mouthfeel. Nice flavor is dryish spices with dusty pale malts. Has a peppery dry bitterness to finish. Nice Pils.

mcox90 (1547) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 2, 2009
12 oz bottle, Pours yellow with a small quickly receding white head. Aroma is faint hops with some grass/grain. Palate is thin and dry, but smooth. Flavor is mild floral hops. No where near as strong as some raters have discussed. Definite malt background. Not as crisp and clean as I expected. That being said, I will confess to the bottle being 3 months past it’s sell date. I will re rate when I can get a fresher bottle.

Flavor is much better than the aroma. This beer smells like a wet dog that has been smoking dope. Flavor has a hop bite, citrus and flower. Not a bad beer, but I don’t like it as much as everyone else.
