COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Take a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, with this elegant, refreshing pilsner. Our brewers created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, Das ist Vunderbar! Formerly known as Shortbatch #11

travita (4935) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, white head, and yellow in color. The smell is a grainy floral sweetness and straw. The taste is sweet, grainy, malt, and ok.

Not bad for a pilsener, which by definition cannot be great. Some grass and grain but over-carbonated.

tnkw01 (1745) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle. Not a big fan of this style but this one is pretty good. Cloudy gold color with a big head. Aroma with a will balanced grain smell. Taste is well balanced and tasty.

nuplastikk (5955) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12oz bottle. Hazy bright yellow body...unfiltered..not what I would expect from the style. Creamy, soapy respectable white head, patchy after a minute or two. Pretty clean, straightforward aroma, some nice clean noble hops, not so much spicy as fresh and zesty. An awesome Pils, this is the real deal. Well expressed hop flavor and solid malt ingredients coupled with solid execution make this a pretty great example of the style. Well done, the lack of filtration gives it a fuller body, depth.

Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Had a pint of this at the Pump House. It was almost clear and was grassy and grainy. Just a little honey and yeast. Very light drinking fare.

probstblueribbon (3790) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy light golden with a decent bright white head, good lacing. Aroma: Peppery/spicy/green/herbal German hopping supported by grainy Pils malt, quite spicy and peppery. Palate: Medium body, full, rounded carbonation. Flav.: A bit more malt presence compared to the nose, otherwise, quite similar with firm German hops presence; quite dry with moderate+ bitterness and a grainy malt and herbal hop finish.

Decentbar? A good example of a German Pils, which I dont always enjoy.

RobertDale (6011) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste is malt, grass, and caramel. Well made, but nothing outstanding.

ilovedarkbeer (2725) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a brilliant yellowish color with a faint green tint and a large bready white head. Notes of lime zest, herbal tea, honey and something airy. Nice

Sammy (11642) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
On target Bohemian pilsner, fresh bottle from Craft Beer Cellar. Unoffensive, lots of foamy white head on banana yellow. Drinkable stuff, saaz hops.

Minimal aroma but nice cloudy golden color and decent body. Many better Pilsners. IBUs are too low for the style.
