Clear rich golden with a frothy white head. Lovely authentic German pale malty crackery nose with some light grassy hops and a little touch of old world rustiness and crisp Pilsen grains. Brisk semidry flavor with lots of crackery Pilsen malts and a firm grassy peppery Saaz hop body that’s just so damn authentic and clean and wonderful and near perfect. Not my favorite pilsner but golly, how much better and authentic does it get from here? Not much I imagine.

Pilsner glass at Yard House. This is a really clear lager, as one should expect. A tall head forms atop the deep gold body. It’s got a decent hue to it, even in the narrow glass. The aroma is clean and crisp with a good realization of Noble hops. The palate has medium high carbonation and is fairly light. I get a faint hint of buttered corn, but given that this is intended to be a traditional take on a German lager, that’s certainly acceptable. I’m impressed with the malt character, it’s delightfully bready and full. Honestly, I was expecting a poor Coors Banquet knock off, but this is something entirely different. No sugary-sweetness here and no green apple flavor. It’s just a well executed classic lager.

On tap at yardhouse, pours a clear golden with a large white head. Sweet malty aroma. Balanced light sweet malt, mild yeast, trace of hops. A Coors dressed up as a German import. Drinkable but nothing special.

On tap at the Table Mountain Inn in Golden, served in a footed pilsener glass. Pretty crisp and easy to drink, decent at best.

8/14/12 notes: draft, JAX. Pour is golden, small head. Aroma is fresh, doughy. Flavor is clean, zip from hops, soft bready finish with very mild bitterness. Well crafted but not particularly memorable.

On tap at The Falling Rock in Denver, CO. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready pils malts with a light lemon floral. A light honey sweetness as well. Flavor is similar. Bready pils malts with some honey sweetness and a light floral note. Finishes dry and clean with maybe a hint of grass before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty simple and unexciting pilsner with some honey sweetened pils malts and a light floral hopping. Eh...

Draft at Falling Rock. Clear deep yellow with a white head. Aroma of toasted grain, biscuit, lemon with a hint of grass. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Clean, crisp. Just enough bitterness in the finish to balance the sweet, toasted grain on the front end. A mild beer for sure and not as flavorful as a Noble Pils, but a nice drinker.

one of the better pilsners i have had. not watered down light beer. more full flavored and bodied. it is an enjoyable beer to try. the lager yeast is also a bit more forthcoming inis one. very crisp.

3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2010
draft. filtered clear sparkling yellow, white head. mild saaz hop nose, exceptionally clean, letting the aromatic hops and light honey/biscuit malt sweetness play. quaffable and refreshing with a mild toasted malt character. sugar is low, acid is nonexistent, hop bitterness is mild for the style but pleasant. appears somewhat neutral and transparent when consumed along with or after something more bold and flavorful, but nice nonetheless.

Tap at a bar in downtown Golden, CO. A pleasant surprise in Coors Country. I realize that Barmen is a Coors product but it is actually a good beer. The bartender told us it is "unfermented and takes 8-10 minutes to pour." I doubt the unfermented part but she was right about the long pour. Chances are she could have sped it up but it was actually worth the wait. Golden straw color with a super thick white head that could have been mistaken for whipped egg whites. Decent nose for a pilsner, faint bitter hop fragrance. The taste was crisp and had a strong presence of bitter Euro hops. Mouthfeel was somewhat slippery. This was a really big, bold pilsner if there is such a thing. A little more malt and it would have been easy to mistake this for a pale ale or ESB. Good beer!
