Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 08-23-2010

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! 15 IBU (AKA - Short Batch #11)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pale yellow, chill haze, carbonation streams, three fingers of level white foam.

Nose is fresh cut grass, hay, and a dash of lemon.

Soft, sweet malt beginning, a stepping stone not a foundation. Some earthiness. Rising bitterness. Big bite at the swallow. Lingering bitterness.

Soft mouthfeel.

Good pilsner.

A: 4.25 - Bright straw gold with dense head, fading slowly.
S: 3.75 - Good noble hop aroma, but somewhat faint.
T: 4.0 - Very good flavor, with plenty of bitterness, with lots of hop flavor, though the hop flavor seems a little citrusy and flowery for german styles. Malt is flavorful as well. Clean, refreshing.
M: 4.0 - Good carbonation levels
O: 3.75 - Good beer, though the noble hop taste is what I look for most in German pils. This is good, but it's not going to become one of my go-to pilses.
