Tasted from tall brown bottle into a lager glass. It poured a nice hazy golden colour with fluffy but short-lived white foam and a little lace. Great pilsener malt aromas: distinct husky graininess, faint vanilla, resiny noble hops, hints of active yeast and rising bread dough. Better than average pilsener flavor, subtle sweetness and graininess, with a stronger than expected tangy hops bitterness. Pleasant mineral water essence and chalky mouthfeel from the suspended yeast. A very tasty, easy-drinking yet complex, well-crafted beer. Went splendidly with spicy chicken enchiladas and rice.
500 ml bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a white head and good retention. Good lacing. Slick and flat mouthfeel. Lightly bitter and slightly sour flavor. Good for an organic, but a sub-par pils. gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep Amber gold color with a big rocky white head. Refreshing floral hop aroma. Delicious dry hop flavor with a brisk malty character. Long dry finish and aftertaste. Very good. Jabic (563) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - APR 28, 2017
Ar: Cracker and dough, with fresh hay; slight sweetness; lean noble hop aroma, with accents of herbal and dried flower. Ap: Straw gold and crystal clear; medium white head with moderate-low retention, leaving a thin cap of bubbles and a few larger suds. T: Fresh doughy malt followed fast by burst of herbal hops; medium bitterness, fairly clean; moss and a slight amount of sulfur; crisp, clean finish with hints of black pepper and saltines. P: Medium-light body, steely; high carbonation with a very dry finish. O: Very tasty German pils; the hop and malt characters are very austere and lean, yet still full and flavorful; clean fermentation, crisp to drink, with great noble hop character.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow. Decent head. Aroma is grassy and noble hoppy. Taste is grassy, grainy and hoppy. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking but could do with more bitterness. Decent German Pils. That’s it. EugeneStraver (238) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2017
10-03-17 Hamburg, 33 cl bottle, bb 08.2017. A white good foam layer on a clear yellow beer. Smell is somewhat malty and sweet. Taste starts a little sweet wth some yellow fruityness. There is an upcoming hopbitter, which becomes a little dry. A reasonable pilsener but not a topper.

A bottle from the so-called ’Pinkus German Restaurant’ on Keelung Road, drunk at home. Aroma: faintly hoppy. Appearance: slightly opaque, light amber, minimal head. Palate: medium body, rather thin. Quite lively carbonation, recognisably hoppy finish. Taste: lightly bitter: this is superior to the locally available lagers, but unremarkable by European standards.

.5L bottle from grocery store. Pours a light gold. Slightly hazy. Aroma of noble hops, some cracker. Flabby mouthfeel. Taste is dry and lightly bitter. Flavor of mediocre German sized cock. EU centric. Not fufulling. Light, lager, pepper. Meh. MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2016

Slight aroma of malts, yeast, grain and hops.
Hazy yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium white head.
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts and yeast; ends slightly dry with grain and hops.
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Refreshing Pilsener that is not artificial at all, but lacks a lot of flavour at the same time. A great basis for its style, but could have been improved upon easily with a strong hop flavour.
Interesting despite averageness. Aromatic hops does the job really well. Worth trying once. markoijelena (3113) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - SEP 19, 2016
