1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 Aroma hops and light malt, boring. Good sized, long lasting, white creamy head. Clear straw-yellow and amber hue. Good palate; soft, slightly oily, low carbonation, with long lasting bitter finish. But neutral and bland initial flavour blending to a strong bitter hop finish. Boring and simple, lacks flavour. Perhaps I’m just not a pilsner fan. Not worth paying premium for this import.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a big foamy white head which recedes too quickly but leaves nice lacing.
Aromas are biscuity, grainy malts and muted floral Saaz hops. Maybe a touch of honey.
The beer is crisp, clean, and light bodied. Same grainy maltiness from the nose, and the faintest hop bittering. A little mineraly? I expect more from this brewer.

Good lace and white head. SRM around 3-4 nice and yellow. Medium high carbonation. Aroma is malty along with flavor, the later subsides to a balanced light hop finish. Sligly dry more from hop bill rather than mash... good session beer.

Very sweet aroma, but strangely bitter flavor. Enjoyable and somewhat light, slight bit of lacing from head.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer yellow to light gold with a white foamy head. It beer has a nice grassy hop filled nose. The flavor is mostly plain, perhaps a somewhat grainy, with a slightly dry and bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice pils in the Bavarian style. Pours a nice, deep golden color, with a beautiful head that lasts until the very end. Good hop nose, slightly grassy, but lots of fresh baked bread aroma as well.
Good barley malt flavor, with a nice bit of tangy hops parading along. Light bitterness for a pils, which is typical of a "pils" from this area of Germany. Overall, very, very good!
On a side note, I liked this far better than the dunkel, which I felt fell far short of the mark for a German dark beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle, the fairly dense foam rises nicely, not overly carbonated. There is just a bit of lacing. The head dies down to about 1/2" after 2-3 minutes to almost nothing after that. Very pale yellow in color. Smells more malty than most pilsners.
Tastes more malty than most pilsners, as well. A bit of a malt / fruit / yeast aftertaste, but fairly mild. Decent beer but not ultra smooth like others in this category.

A great pilsener from a great brewery. As somebody who doesn’t much like pils, this was a good change from the norm. Purchased at D’s 6 Pack and Dogz in Pittsburgh. I’ve never seen it there before.

The aroma! Smells like scotch and coke. This is probably just me. I love the crystal clearness of the beer, you can see right through it, the carbonation is beautiful. I love the initial honey sweet taste it’s got going for it while at the same time keeping the traditional bitterness that I expect from a good pils, however that bitterness lingers on the tongue for just too long earning it an 8 rather than a 9-10, but this is forgivable enough. It’s thick yet medium body accentuate the bitterness which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on personal preferance. over all it’s a damn decent beer and gets a bonus from me for being the sweetest pils i’ve had. Props to the brewery
