This is one of the finest German style pilsners available. If you can find it, buy it/ I have mainly drank it straight from the tap on site in Davis, Ca. I don't get into taste descriptors as everyones taste is slightly different. TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Pale blonde. Rapidly dwindling fizzy dirty white foam. Zingy, spicy laced aroma with lemon zest, minerals, grass, and straw. Beautiful carbonation: expansive and fluffy. Full straw-like, bready malt flavors capped by a lightly coarse, floral tinged bitterness brushing the back of the throat. Lingering metallic notes accompanied by traces of dough. A simplistic, yet flavorful pilsner. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2003
pale straw color. Nose of light corn and cereal grains. Sweet and floral hints as well. Exceptional cleanup. Lots of clean, smooth maltiness. Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2003
grainy honey aroma, kinda cloudy, weak honey flavors not enough crispness or hop presence beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied pilsner. Fresh and clean. Nice spicy hops, with a mild malt backbone. Pilsner are not one of my favorite styles, but this one is very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

A well-built pilsener and unlike the typical American micro interpretation of the style (Victory, Tupper, North Coast). This adheres rigidly to the German Pils framework. Tasts much like Einbecker or perhaps Bitburger. Fills out its frame marvelously. Would like to drink this in quantity. 666seth (229) - California, USA - DEC 11, 2002

Sparkling dark gold. Malt nose and taste Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2002
Little aroma and only a vague malt flavor. Made for the Bud drinkers I guess. Good light pils but without distinction. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 25, 2002
Mainly clear dark straw. Small, compact white froth. Very slow carbonation. German hop aroma met with wet grass and bready malts. Sharp, tingly and bracingly crisp. Nice initial hop charge of spicy Hallertau. Lemon rind aftertaste. Light body. Quenching, dry malt flavor of toasted white bread. Gentle slickness. Clean, fresh tasting with no residue. Finishes with mineral hints and a toasty counter to the hop bitterness. Very nice.
