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.

Shared from tall German brown bottle into a tulip. It poured a beautiful golden/light-amber color with moderate white head and nice lace. Extremely complex aromas of freshly-cut husky grains, characteristically vanilla/marshmallow pils essence, flowery and peppery noble German hops, faint banana, honey. 100% true-to-style pilsner flavors, grainy, bittersweet, mildy fruity and spicy, with an excellence and refinement I find difficult to explain. Elegantly delicious. Light-medium body, faint mineral water essence, crusty French bread mouthfeel, crisp and clean finish. Highly recommended.

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

Draft. Pours golden yellow with light white head that laces nicely. Very little visible carbonation. Nice German pils flavor typical of the style. Very drinkable and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 (Bottled) A delicate Pils , you gotta appreciate the style to give a damn -unlike the dismissive ratings that rank here . woody hop aroma- kinda floral and bready -its good ,like this beer . Egg shell head ..yellow glowing base. Man this beer is tangy and bitter - but clean on my palate ; woody pencil shavings . honey. bready malt ...spicy hop. I could drink loads of this stuff..

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. Cheers

Golden coloured with a solid white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavour with plenty of bitterness. A very well made pilsener.

Fresh hoppy character dominates, well rounded malty palate. Clean crisp and refreshingly bitter.

Pale straw yellowy, ugh. With a surprisingly appetizing fluffy white head that leaves clumps of foam lace. Sweet light and Pils malts mix with whiffs of heavy carbonation, slight grassy and floral hop impression. Slightly sweet and grainy biscuity malt with light floral hop bittering. Subtle. Smooth and almost creamy moderate carbonation make this light bodied Pils extremely drinkable.
