COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

Draft. Crystal clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of peppery and lightly grassy cereal. Taste is peppery straw, crisp finish. Decent.

Dorada clara, limpia y de fina burbuja. Un dedo de espuma, duradera. Aroma escaso, cereal. En boca sabor cereal característico, tono dulce y algo metálico. Final algo más seco y ligeramente amargo. Bebible. Pilsen del montón. Las de trigo de la casa son mucho mucho mejores.

Very German. Very Pilsnery. Very okay. I’ve reviewed so many pilsners. So many of them are so much the same. There are a few that really stand out. This is not one of them. It might be time to move on from this style.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 6, 2015
Botella. Color dorado muy claro. Poca espuma. Ligero aroma a malta. Bastante carbonatada y refrescante. Mucha malta y lúpulo. Final tirando a seco que deja con ganas de abrirte la siguiente,... y la siguiente,... y la siguiente... Muy buena pilsen.

Aroma is deep malt and a hint of spicy aroma hopping. Appearance is crystal clear straw with small off white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is honey malt forward, followed by a bit of smooth floral tangy hop bitterness. Palate is light and crisp. Overall an excellent beer, but needs more hop bitterness and floavor for the Pils style. Still a magnificent tasting beer. The malt flavor in this is really second to none.

bartzluke (391) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 1, 2015
.2l pour from tap into a tiny shaker pint. Yellow and clear with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Light bodied, fairly thin, moderately crisp, a little watery, and dry. Nose is light malt, very faint citrus. Taste takes a backseat to the dryness. Pretty bitter. Not too much going on here.

Clear golden colour. Bread and cereal aroma. A bit sweet, a bit grassy. Smooth texture.

On tap (16 oz) @ Mule Bar.

Appearance: Clear pale golden-blond with a small white head, good retention and heavy lacing.

Aroma: The nose is really fresh with breadied cereals, pils malt, nice grassy presence and mild hoppy presence.

Taste: Slightly sweet with grassy presence, bread, honeyed cereals, mild peppery notes, mild skunky notes and mild bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Clean and crisp. Rather dry finish. Mild grassy aftertaste.

Overall: Extremely easy drinkable... the glass was empty way too quickly. Clean and crisp with a nice focus on the pils malt. It’s kind of chewy as well because of the honeyed notes. Really tasty stuff.

Really nice pilsner, but not the greatest out there. Has a nice look to is and is easy to drink, I just didn’t find it that special.
