UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Draft. This is a great German lager and one of my all time favorites. Pours light yellow with thin white head. Great flavor for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a pokal from a brown 11.2 ounce glass. Due Date is August of 09 so I am drinking it just then. It has a nice, large, foamy white head. The beer is really clean and clear, lots of carbonation. Straw yellow in color. The lacing on this one is a bit weird, it leaves a lot of little spots. Nice spicy noble hops on the nose, still smells fresh. This is a noble pilsener. The perfect balance of hops and malt, the hops lingerer on the tongue with some spice. There is a good lemon flavor as well. The malt is slightly more subdued but rounds out the hops beautifully with some sweet notes. Overall this rivals any pils out there and might just have taken the pils crown for me. It just has some wonderful hops going in it, that smooth mouthfeel we all love, and the infinite drinkablity brewers dream of selling.

BBD 2/16. Pours a clear golden. World class head volume, retention and lacing. Outstanding light pilsner nose. A touch of noble hops and hints of lemon over a subtle grainy biscuit. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice burst of effervescence in the middle a finely bubbled rush in the finish. The flavor profile is almost world class. It is moderate in intensity, slightly complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a slight noble hop flavor, more herbal than spicy, that flows into a mild subdued bitterness. The middle allows a light grainy biscuit to achieve balance. As the finish approaches, lemon notes are evident. The finish is crisp.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 i get this stuff fresh in illinois... across the arch. it’s a very solid pilsner (no "e," as per the bottle) . i love to mix it with sessions/combos of mojo, red rye, indica, bigfoot, etc. it doesn’t just break things up, it really adds a great flavor and counter to the utter rawness that i prefer in my beer. the nose, the (very) full body, the crispness... excellent and not common for the style.

On tap from 5L mini keg pours crystal clear gold with 2 finger head. Nose is crisp corn, soft grain, touch of grassyness. Taste is crisp, snappy, nice balanced medium bitterness, corn, grain, potato, wheat bread, crust. Finishes with nice lingering balanced bitterness, all the earthy grain, touches of light grassyness and faintest hints of citrus you want from a pilsner while being overall balanced, refreshing, and superbly drinkable.

On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. Aroma has a nice snap of hops and pilsner malt, with a good bit of lager quality. Pours a lightly hazy pale golden, with a nice frothy clean white head. Flavors are crisp and fresh, with good bright hop flavor, crackery pils malt and nice mineral base. Delicious, clean and fresh. I think it could shine some more, but overall, I’m very impressed.

Bottle. Ah, a reminder of the classic German styles. While the golden color and biscuit-based, almost corny texture of this beer certainly makes the geekiest beer geeks turn up their nose, I find the subtlety and finesse in this stalwart quite delicious, without flaw, and delicious.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottle. Nice malt aroma with moderate hops. Golden yellow with nice head. Primarily a nice barley malt flavor with light hops. Easy drinking.
