11.2 ounce green bottle is, fortunately, not light struck. Pours a hazy golden yellow body with a tall vanilla head that has excellent retention and leaves splotchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal, grassy, and spicy hops with hints of lime and bready malt. Exceptional palate has mineral notes and a velvety feel to go with the light medium body and lively carbonation. Taste opens with a spicy and grassy hop bitterness, followed by a lemon zest twang and some fresh lime. Hints of honey sweetness emerge from the mostly crackery dry malts. Black pepper and mineral notes add a subtle complexity. Finishes clean. One of the better beers of any style I’ve sampled recently, and an exceptional pilsner. crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Not sure what the essential difference is here to the other pils besides abv. But this one smells very fresh and nice. It is a pleasant citrusy/hebal aroma of fresh hops and a slight bit of pale malt. The flavor is zippy with some fruitiness, pale malt, and a bit of bitterness. The hop flavor isn’t as intense as the smell but still satisfying. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2006
Bottled at Altstadthof, Nürnberg. Slightly hazy golden coloured with big white head. Malty and grainy aroma. Sweet malty flavour with a very hoppy and bitter finish. Very clean, crisp and fresh. Soft mouthfeel. Well balanced. This was much better than any of Altstadthof’s homebrewed beers. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
This is a very nice pilsner. It is gold with a big white head slowly shrinking to a wispy top and hint of lace. The aroma isvery nive, with honey, flowery grain, bread crust, herbs and a hint of citrus. The taste is a bit light and not overly hoppy but nice, flavourful, and well-rounded with hay, herbs, bread, flowers. Overall, it tends to remind me more of a Czech-style rather than a German pilsner due to the greater range of body and flavours and the weaker hop character.

11.2 Oz bottle poured into a pilsner flute, nice head some retention, bread, hay, floral, dough. the gold standard for a pilsener I wish it wasn’t so hard to obtain

Fine appearance and surprisingly tastefull for an organic beer. You feel the relation to the Czech area. A very tasty PILS, great colour with a little bitterness. Works well with bavarian food. Tasted at the 1. Sample Spring Session with Finn and Rune the april, 11th.
