3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 multiple bottles at du sonne in bischberg. bright clear gold, perfectly formed rocky white head that seems to last forever. exceptionally intense and vibrant hallertau nose... spiced green hops, floral, zesty, doughy... the bitter, dry green bean and sweet sugar snap pea hop notes are incredible. the depth of this pils is unmatched - bright, effervescent, full, frothy body, perfectly crisp, exceptionally snappy and minerally, wonderfully crisp and refreshing. dust/minerals/granite, all there to breathe in and marvel at. this is a sorely unappreciated german pils.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This softly bready Pils shares flowers and white pepper before herbal bitterness peeks through the light honeyed sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the shiny golden.
-At first, this one appeared a tad underhopped, but it quickly becomes apparent that the flavour dosage is meant to keep you interested when you are reaching the last half of your pint. Hop build-up is quite pleasant.
-This is a very classy brew.
-Mouthfeel is supple and silky.
-Yet another smashing, elegant lager from Zur Sonne.

On tap at the brewery pub.

Butelka 0,5l. Aromat przyjemny, słodowo-chmielowy. W smaku podobnie, rześko, przyjemnie nachmielowe. Goryczka do umiarkowanej.

clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma had malt and grassy notes. Flavor was clean and fresh with noble hops. Finished dry and bitter. Very solid work.

Leighton (20548) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours clear, pale yellow with a fluffy white head. Dry cereal, some light hay bitterness, floral notes, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Tasty finish, more cereal, biscuity pale malts, slight bitterness. Very enjoyable.

Oakes (16959) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
Light gold, gentle sparkle, thin head. Light hop aroma. Low-moderate bitterness with a crisp herbal hop character. Clean, flawless but not their most interesting offering.

nealblind (1805) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap Bamberg. Clear gold Amber. Aroma grapes grass punchy aroma with lots of promise. Grassy flavor is a slight let down but the brewers raw talent is clear. I just wish they used better hops.

jonas (7358) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle
Hazy green golden color, low on visible carbioation, foamy white head. Bready malt and herbal hop aroma. Heavy on the straw malt for a pils, slight fruity dip in the middle before hard metallic herbal bittering hops are injected, pinecones present. Slick mouthfeel, long bitter aftertaste. Its brutal, but I like it for that.
