UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 dandelion honey tea aroma which is very full. soft smooth texture. it becomes extremely bitter without disappearing in the mouth. almost aggressively soft and smooth if such a thing is possible. i don't think i've ever had a beer i found too bitter but i was pleased that this beer went towards the edge of my bitterness tolerance

Clear, bright yellow pour. Topped by a white, frothy, lacy head with real staying power. Firm cracker malt, a touch of honey, and vibrant saaz aromatics. Flavor is clean grain, honey-kissed crackers, and a touch of lemongrass. Light body, perfect carb, and great herbal/floral bitterness in the finish. Flashy? No. Awesome, old-school pils? Yes.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2008
This is a nice pilsner. It is gold, a little on the pale side, bubbly, with a big, moderately lasting white head that leaves some decent thin lace. The aroma is malty grain, crisp & sweet, flowery, herbal hops and hint of sulphur. The taste is smooth, lightly toasted grain with lots of herbal and grassy hops flavour and a hint of pine. The grain hits first, then the hops take over, before a long finish of grain and herbs. It has nice crispness, but lots of flavour over the light body.

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.

Aroma is a mix of grains/bread and hops. The flavor is bready malts and a dry hop bite to the finish.

I was blown away by the taste on this pils. I wasn’t expecting such a balanced attack of malt and hops. The hop profile on this is creeping in on pale ale territory and it’s incredible. Aroma is grassy, slightly spicy and very enticing. Reminds me of how the inside of a brewery smells. Appearance is a light hazy yellow. Mouthfeel is very clean, very refreshing. Flavor is nice and bitter, with an emphasis on bitter. In fact, I can’t recall the last pils this bitter, if ever. Simply exquisite.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2003
50 cL bottle, pilsener glass, 1/16/05 bbe, 48 degrees F. Tall, creamy, rocky, white head is well lasting and sits on a crystal clear, pale golden, effervescent body with an indescribable firm beauty to it. Cookie, light bread malt (M); herbs and grassy hops (H); pear, white wine aromas with a touch of honey. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter flavor becomes a moderately bitter finish with a crisp, clean acidity. Leaves my mouth feeling refreshed after each sip. Medium-light body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: a little grainy and a little too heavy, but otherwise this beer succeeds everywhere Pilsner Urquell and Staropramen suck donkey ass.

Started with an acidic aroma. The flavor is musty malt, tangy, yet crisp, almost lemony. Glad to drink it.

Geruch unspektakulär, Geschmack typgerecht schlank. Nachtrunk bitter-herb, so wünscht man sich ein Pils.
