3.8/5  rDev +6.7%

A: Crystal clear, slight effervescent bubbling, creamy white head. Straw to golden in color with excellent lacing. Head does not dissipate quickly.

S: Unique continental European lager (yeast) aroma. Slight toast or biscuit aroma present. Little to no hops in the nose.

M: Medium body with a crisp, but not overpowering hop bit on the palette.

T: Notes of malt, biscuit, and with a ever so slight creamy finish. The hops are present and pleasant providing a slight earthy or grassy note.

Overall: I really enjoy this beer. It is an excellent representation of the style and sessionable.

3.75/5  rDev +5.3%

A: Pours a crystal clear deep golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces to a patchy thin film with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass (looking almost mottled). Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts with some lighter amounts of floral and grassy hops. Light amounts of sweetness are present.

T: Moderate flavors of bready malts, similar to the smell, with some light amounts of sweetness. There are some herbal/spice notes from the hops and a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and dry in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and sessionable. Refreshing and seems like it would pair well with lots of different foods. Reminds of visits to Europe (where this was often the only "import" beer I came across) and the mid 1990s when I first started to explore different beers.

The real deal. Whenever I miss Europe this is what I drink.

A golden yellow color when poured into a stein.

Smells very strongly of yeast. Exactly like uncooked rising bread dough. Ever so slightly sweet at the end.

This is a very flavourful beer. While there is not a whole lot going on in terms of complexity, the bready yeast taste is fully attentive and present.

This is where this gets knocked down a bit. Its a little greasy and slippery on the tongue. I could say mildly slimy if I thought about it real hard.

All in all a good pils. One that others should strive to acheive in quality.
