Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Aroma of pils malt with some grass noted. Pours a clear light amber with a one finger, mostly diminishing white. The taste is nice balanced of malt and hop. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable and drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden pour with thin white, soapy head that dissipated quickly. Due to my allergies I cannot describe the smell at this moment. Crisp taste, good noble hop bitterness, and refreshing. This is definitely one of my go-to summer (make that anytime) beers.

The nose is sweet with a little sugarpea and grass and a hint of pepper. Smooth sweetness with a good bite of white-pepper which relaxes to a herbal refreshing quality. That smooth sweet character is really what stands out to me. Delicious.

Could crush this stuff in the summer. Solid clean pilsner with nice crisp light finish. Well done.

Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Trying to account for it being cold.....this would be a nice lawnmower beer. The Urquell yeast is telling in this, and against the Grapenut like sweet malt flavor, keeps it interesting and crisp.

egajdzis (6186) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pils malt, grassy hops, light citrus, toast. Taste of citrus, grass, some sweeter toffee notes, and toasted malts in the finish. Two solid pils from Texas on this trip.

ttoadee (1311) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Cloudy pour, decent tight white head. Nose = hops! Slightly bitter on the tongue. Lightly kilned malt in the middle with a mouth and noseful of bitter hops!!! Finish is dry and slightly spicy. Yum.

Draught at Whole Foods Austin. Crisp. Slightly hoppy. Clear and yellow body. Tasty overall and very nice.

draft and cans. filtered gold with a white head of average retention. grassy, lightly spicy, lightly juicy, heavily musty German hop nose with sweetish baked cracker pilsner malt. lightly toasty and grainy / rough with medium-low carbonation, medium acid, a touch of something I will call "crunchy" but could otherwise be described as overly-toasty, combined with overuse of noble hops to produce something a bit rough around the edges, bordering on caustic, but kept inline by sweet-enough pale malt. yeast could be cleaned up but otherwise Id say they have something going here.

Pours golden with whitish head. Smell is clean, hay, grassy and light malt. Taste is smooth and crisp balanced malt and grassy hops. Very easy to drink. Great Pilsner.
