Notes/Commercial Description:
Made for taking a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, this elegantly refreshing pilsner was created with German malt balanced with the spicy tang of Czech Saaz hops. The bread and biscuit flavors of the grain are topped with the floral character of the Noble hop, which may just get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!”

Prost!

Smuttynose is right on the money with both name and taste on this pilsner!
Poured from bottle to Sam Adams glass.
Nice bright white head that settled quickly, leaving some lacing behind. Very light yellow color that was slightly opaque.
Smell was on the sweeter side, with just a hint of the hop fragrance.
Taste was smooth and refreshing with very little bitterness left behind.
I could chug quite a few of these!
Prost!

A - Poured into a pint glass with a light hazy straw color and a quick to disappear head.
S - Grain, light malt like most pilsner
T - mild grassy and a hint of citrus. Herbal, a little lemon. A nice hop character
M - Light body and mild carbonation. A dry finish.
O - Easy to drink, light and refreshing. A good Pilsner worthy of a try.
