500 ml bottle. Aroma-Some floral spicy hop, malt character seems bready. Appearance-Hazy, amber, generous long lasting off white head. Taste- Plenty spicy and floral hop, some malt character though no real sweetnes, dry finish with an assertive bitternes. Palate- Med light mouthfeel, smooth, plenty of carbonation. Overall. Does not seem to fit in as a German pils in the strictist but who cares it’s tasty.
Delicious beer tho slightly dark (too amber) for style. Clean and rich flavor, malty but not overly sweet. nimbleprop (8830) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2011
50cl bottle from Franklins General Store. Pours a hazy, amber orange with a very creamy, frothy eggshell head. I liked the way it looked, very appetizing, but not a lot like a pilsener. Nose has a lot of biscuit, malts, a little apple, some light lemon zest, rising bread, a little bit of soap. Flavor is malty, crackers, biscuit dough, lemons, soap, some nice fruitiness. Medium bodied, sweet, slightly bitter finish. Definitely not a pilsener. More like a dark heller bock. Although not really to the style, still drinkable and flavorful.

500 mL bottle from Franklins General Store, Hyattsville, MD. Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bready biscuity malts, leafy, vegetal hops, a bit of grassiness. The taste is grainy, bready malts, caramel, grassy hops, nutty notes, apples and a chemical note. Overall pretty good. Medium bodied. Lingering bitterness. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle from Perfect Pour: Pours a clear deep copper orange with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a fresh grassy noble hop nose with a touch of lightly toasted caramel pale malt. Starts with a good malty fullness and some light toasted pilsener maltiness with a hint of light fruity lager yeast esters and a good dose of fresh grassy hops. Finishes fairly clean and bittersweet with good authenticity. An enjoyable German-style Pils.
