3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample bottle for review. Pours a bright, if a little hazy, yellow pils color. Lots of bubbles in the glass, and a big head up top. Smell carries a little skunk and oxidation that tapers off once it’s been in the open air. Taste is clean a light pilsener malt, with a touch of the same water composition. Some peppery German hop, but I suspect there is a lack of availability and variety for organic hops so far. Dinging its nose when it’s travelled so far seems unfair, but that’s how it comes to me. I think it marks up better than most other organic beers I’ve had.
16.9floz bottle (500ml), no date, $3, pint glass. Appears a pale, neon-yellowish gold color with a small amount of head. Wet hay aroma, and flavor is similar. Overall, this is a fair simple pils. Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2017
This is one good Pils, fresh, tasty, with a lovely bitterness, well-crafted neur0 (1445) - Hannover, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
(Flasche) Es hat eine getreidig gelbe Farbe, ist filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist getreidig, mit leichten Kaugummi Aromen, süßlich und blumigen Hopfen. Der Geschmack ist schlank, getreidig, etwas metallisch, harzig bitter und retronasal kommt eine Nektarnote durch. Kleg (447) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2017
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 (2974) - 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 (735) - 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 (324) - 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. Luneylane (265) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 7, 2016
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. MacBoost (1959) - Victor, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2016
