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.

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 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.

A really great crisp Pilsner. Mice grassy, malty flavors and excellent finish. Really enjoyable

This had just arrived at Andy’s. I love to find fresh German pils, for it is so rare. Pale yellow, clear, nice fluffy white head. The hops were very present in the nose, along with a touch of hay and maybe even a little sulfur. Flavor is nice and fresh with flavor and bitterness. The sweet malt comes through nicely. Love those noble hops. No oxidation present. Too bad it is tough to distinguish a fresh bottle from an old one without opening it up, for I would buy this again if I knew what I was going to get.

Now I know this beer should take a while to pour but somehow the folks at Zum want to serve it the American way. Regardless, the one inch head doesnt stay for long. There’s a nice honey and grassy aroma. The flavor has a nice crispness, almost bordering on sweet but this beer is too well made to taste crappy. The fresh hop flavor is quite tasty.
