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

500ml bottle pours clear yellow golden orange with a finger of head. Nose is round spicy corn, wet grain, straw, apple, orange. Taste is similar, crisp, light and balanced, earthy orange, grain spice and corn. Finishes low bitterness, doughy biscuit, light grassy grain, corn, straw, cracker. Great pils.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 From a bottle. A great example of style, great malt flavour comes through, the mild spicey hop finish. Good stuff.

Russo (1936) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
Pale golden color with a nice and frothy whitehead. Aroma is malty, yeasty and slightly hoppy. Flavor is like aroma with some bitter notes. Low to medium carbonation and a light body with a dry bitter finish. Refreshing beer.

jamaty (1541) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2015
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 (135) - 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.
