This poured a hazed yellow color with a fairly thick white head. That went away quickly. Grassy, yeasty aroma... and I don’t pick up the latter with my schnozz too often. A mild citric flavoring with a subtle hint of spices. Slightly bitter finish. Not too impressive. mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow/orange color. Aroma is mostly grainy. And a little papery. Flavor is a little bitter. A little bit spicy and citric as well. Not bad but not that great. hershiser2 (3250) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Light hazy yellow, with a large head- fluffy and nice looking. Smells of banana and clove, along with some grassiness. Flavor is sweetly yeasty... has some kick- peppery and other spice. Decent, but nothing to brag about. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Bottle. Pale golden yellow with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma. Very crisp, very carbonated. A bit of spice, some yeast, some acidity, but thirst quenching - just wish the carbonation was a bit lower. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Golden yellow with quickly subsiding head. Very yeasty aroma for a pils, and likewise the flavor is heavily gristy and tart, not as crisp as the best German pilsners, but this is still a fine German beer.

Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Thin lacing.
Aroma is yeast.
Palate is thin.
Not much in the flavor dept. Kind of piney, kind of citrusy, a little sweet.
refreshing. mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 24, 2004
16.9oz bottle Hazey, golden color, I was given a wet glass, so there was very little head, slight fruit and some grassy hops in the nose, more tart in the finish than bitter(but some bitterness) Certainly not sweet...its like I added a lemon to it, but I didn’t. Seems to have more in common with an ale, or more specifically a wiezen than a pilsner, although it isn’t a wiezen. Not a beer to look to if you want a pils(which I DID!), but it does have some interest to it. jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Pours yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is that of an average pilsner, flavor is that of an average pilsner. Overall, an average pilsner. Not impressive. SpringsLicker (3641) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Golden yellow beer with a dense white head. Typical Pilsner aroma of malt balanced by Noble hops. Smooth malt flavor with a proper bitter finish. Nothing really special here. canary dog (774) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUL 14, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Rated as Pinkus Ur-Pils. This is a delicious, fluffy, tantalizing Pilsner. It’s pretty much everything a German Pils should be.
