bottle, BBD March 2013Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2012
clear gold body with thick cascading carbonation and a rocky white head. mildly musty calcium / mineral note in the nose at first, showing more gravel and cement mix and sulfur as it breathes. softly minty green spiced hop grassiness with mild bubble gum touches. frothy and rich carbonation presents the toasty cereal pilsner malt body with quaffable roundness. light nutrisweet notes noticed late but for the most part it remains a true focus of zesty and prickly hop acids with the grains only becoming noticeably husky late. the acid washing and full carbonation along with some light floral gumminess make this one a true winner.
Sehr hellgelbes Pils, allerdings mit feinporigem Schaum. Ein sehr schwachbrüstiger Duft nach Hopfen und einigen Fehlaromen. Im Antrunk dann aber ganz klar ein Pils, etwas ausdrucksarm, aber auch nicht so schlecht wie es hier gemacht wird. Prädikat: Trinkbar.
Test vom 22.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,9,8,9 - 8,90

Golden color. Malty and herbal hops in the aroma. Maily malty flavor. Fairly low bitterness for a pils. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear yellow appearance with a big white head. Grainy straw/hay, malty, floral aroma. Fairly dry, pale grainy, pils malty, husky, herbal flavor. Not bad but nothing too special. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Soft floral nose. Light body, low bitterness and metal, floral recess, but it’s a sharp and enjoyable hoppiness, even exciting. Soapy white head atop a yellow body.

on tap at landbierparadies in nuremburg. clear golden with a soft white head; light honey and waxy aroma; flavours of chamomile tea and rye bread; light texture, very drinkable Jonb5 (576) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Poured a medium head, very pale colour, clear. Smelled of noble hops. Crisp taste with some bitterness, notes of straw and fruits. Lots of gas, overall ok, a bit better than the typical mass produced German pils but not outstanding. stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a clear and yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, straw and notes of hops with grass. The flavor follows the nose with additional notes of fruit. The palate is sweetness. Overall a beer below average. sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2011

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 My Bottom Line :
Delicate lemongrass aromas and flavors colour this Pilsener’s dry haystack, as lightly toasted cereals give more depth to a long, herbal hop finish.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the shiny pale yellow golden.
-This is beautifully dry and supremely drinkable. One bottle is clearly not enough.
-The flavor profile is beautifully balanced.
-A touch of sulphur is found within, perfectly harmonious with the hop and malt profile.
-This won, for me, a blind Pils tasting I had with my pal, David. Simply stellar all around. A close second turned out to be Wagner Kemmern’s Pils.
-Decidedly, I have a thing for Sauer’s brews. Both their tap Lagerbier and bottled Pils gave me orgasmic pints. They are both the epitome of the word süffig, in my little world.
Bottle and on tap at the brewery gasthof.
