3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft at Meinel Brau in Hof. Clear pale gold with a fine white head. Lemon-y and minerallic and balanced, it’s less expressive in the nose than the Zwickelpils, but is noticeably "cleaner" in it’s lemon oil Noble hop presentation. Lightly sweet, medium-low bitterness, juicy and hoppy with a trace off-note of laundry detergent. Has good malt richness but the carbonation is just a tad fizzy / rough.

Somewhat dusty nose. Pale golden, no visible carbonation, well-formed rocky head. Stale dusty hop flavors, a bit malt, bitter finish. Lightish body, oily mouthfeel. Uninspired pils.

Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass very zippy, nice head. Starts mild, modest hoppy, not too dry, spicy-wheaty. Finish still mild, well balanced, wheaty. Quite drinkable. Good pils!

Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty – grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, faint hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, faint grassy hoppyness. Malty – grainy "pils" - could use more hoppyness.
