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

12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a moderate, frothy white head. Aroma is pale malt, biscuit, grass, and a tiny bit of honey. Taste is sweet (a little too sweet); biscuit, spice, grass, yeast, pale malt, and grain. Some spicy bitterness lingers. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little off from crisp with a light oiliness to it.

Dacrza (1072) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2017
DATE: October 6, 2017... OCCASION: a Friday night with Shan watching TV... GLASSWARE: PSU pilsner... clear, sallow yellow body with large bubbles that rush upward into a thin, uneven head... the power of the Saaz hops cuts through with a sweet malt base... a smooth, pleasant mouthfeel makes each sip swift... the finish is dry, crisp, with a bit of lager to it, rounded and thick... the flavor profile isn't diverse, settling on the noble hops to develop a metallic ping that doesn't hit as sharply as other pilsners do... the malts are light and aromatic, and the overall take is a clean one... a beer I would drink happily, but not one I would seek out...

3.3
jsmerig (1724) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Pours a hazy yellow gold with a bright white head. Aroma of hay/straw. Starts mildly sweet and turns a little bitter as the taste goes on. As it does a strong earthy note prevails. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4
alobar (3970) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Pale yellow pour with aroma of lemongrass and grain. Citrus/ lemon sweetness with a solid grain background. Flavorful and well done.
