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

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours light gold with a modest, white head. Lovely, crisp malt aroma with some faint, grassy hops. Fairly sweet flavor with bread and a grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes very crisp, lightly dry and sweet. Very, very good. (3.9)

Bottle shared at Sanders in NYC on a night of aggressive drinking. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine white head. Tangy white bread nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of faint hay, some dry white bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat dry on the finish with mild grainy malts, hay and straw. Its an OK American-made lager. (3.5)

bhensonb (14615) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours slightly hazy light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly bready with herb/grass/citrus mild hop. Med body. Flavor is hoppier than the aroma suggest. Pale malt, quite clean, with a bready touch. For me it is quite bitter - likely noble considering the Saaz, but I cant easily put a word to it. Grassy is probably close. It drinks very nicely. Its really good.

Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

DSG (13573) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with a big, frothy, white head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, grassy and floral with some citric notes and a bit of bready malt. Flavor starts with some sweetish malt, slightly bready, then turns drier with hay and a moderately bitter finish with pleasant grassy hoppiness. Light to medium-bodied. A great Pilsener, really fresh and refreshing. Israeli summer could have been much easier to handle if I had a case of this.
