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

I love the caramel and Saaz aroma of this beer. The body is very full without being heavy. Great finish with lots of lingering bready flavor .

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.

Pours clear golden with small white head out of bottle. Aroma of apple juice, pine, grass, honey, and some hops. Great flavor of bread, oats, grass, and hint of hops. Good beer for a pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great saaz hops and barley taste here. Definitely a great entry for the style. Pours blonde with some orange hue. Finishes with some crisp barley aroma, light bitterness. Tap at Churchkey.

Bottle. Pours a clear cidery gold with faint white head. Aroma is lovely: grass, meadow, honey, apple juice, oats, grain. Taste is orange rind, breakfast roll, grain, grassy hops, lightly soapy and resinous hop finish. Still my go-to pils. So good.

Weed ain’t like it was in the sixties, neither is pilsner. This is super dank yet true to style. Everything prima yet everything pils.

Say, why does this pilsener have a big ol’ picture of a hop flower on the label? *sip* Oh!

Bottle. Yellow with thin white head. Aroma of flora hops, grains, light citrus, and a hint of sweetness. Light body with strong hop bitterness upfront and grains notes with a bitter finish. More hops bitterness than I was expecting but nice.

From comments I expected this beer to be much better than it was, turned out to be very bitter with a bit of a garden hose smell, occasional hints of crisp malts and band aids.
