bartlebier (4013) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 On-site pitchers 2012, growlers2013, 5L minikeg2014. Yes, I do love this typical SW unfiltered Pilsner a whole lot more than its lazy tourist trap origin... Reasons: pours murkier than a Zwickl, like a green straw protein shake. Fresh aroma, citrus, proteins and some Tettnang. Taste is a paean to zesty Tettnang and unfiltered rich pale malts, gong down on a richly smooth palate. Sweet and suave almond pale malt notes throughout. Extra points for remaining under 5%, and with that one of the SouthWest’s prime sessioners, with quite some natural hop character.
- note to Freiburg visitors: always up to get this as draught growler or come join in the MON pitcher fun at the source... Beerhunter111 (21349) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2014
On tap at the Brewpub. Trübes goldgelbes Pils mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, grasig. Geschmack herb, grasig, minimal würzig. Koelschtrinker (20591) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 12, 2013
Leicht hopfiger, sehr herber und leicht bitterer Antrunk. Frisch, die Bitterkeit steigt leicht, das Bier schmeckt frisch und angenehm getreidig, zum Ende auch hefig. Bitterer Nachhall. Sehr gut, wenn auch ungewohnt nordisch. 11/12/11/12//12 BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2013
0.3 Litre, in a tall glass in the BrewPub on 11th Sep 2013.
Pale golden and cloudy with a full white head.
Almost odourless, with mild hints of yeast and citrus notes.
Refreshing, but bland, yeasty feel to the whole tasting with a dry finish: a typical German BrewPub pils with nothing to make me want another. jfb (6348) - GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
(draught) pours a murky golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of butter, pale malts, mango and banana skins, herbal hops and some light earth. flavour is mostly the same, butter and grainy pale malts, slightly yeasty and green, with a hint of earth and a minerally finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy, golden colour with a darker tint. Frothy, white head. Light fruity aroma with a citrus note - quite unusual for a German pilsener - then grass, pale malts and herbal, floral hops. Taste is bitter. Light to medium body with a thinner texture and a lively carbonation, almost fizzy - which adds to the freshness and crispness of this pilsener. Finishes bitter and dry with citrus and hay. Very refreshing, that just hit the spot this warm summer evening in Freiburg. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 17, 2013
On draught at the place. Pleasant. Didn’t enjoy the place much. Rerate pending. Gio82 (11) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 18, 2012
Aroma: bread, resin, citrus, earthy; Appearance: pale, cloudy, with frothy, white head with good lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, again citrusy and slightly sour. Palate: light to medium body, with lively carbonation, quite bitter finish. Not bad at all MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
My Bottom Line : fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
Talkative pils malt flavors engage herbal, spicy hops in a refreshing conversation from aroma to finish for a refreshing pint of unfiltered Pilsener.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam laces around the cloudy whitish yellow (this looks like a Witbier!).
-I love the fact that this is the lightest beer of the bunch abv-wise, but it is the most flavorful. Good job!
-The prickly carbonation remains soft when hitting the palate.
-Citrusy flavors rise from the spicy hops.
On tap at the brewpub.
Draught at the brauhaus
Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Mild malt and hop aroma, some noble hops appears. The malt profile is mild, but the combination of light crispness, extreme dryness and high bitterness creates a very refreshing impact; long final, although the hop doesn’t carry many aromatic qualities. Good.
