This German Pils is just ok, I was disappointed.
The first taste is ok, but it has a harsh after taste.
I wouldn't buy it, but maybe I should try it on tap.
I always like to try at least two of the same brewery
and this Sly Fox, pils at least had the same taste.
I will try another type of product from them, but not
the same style.

This beer is much like all the other Pilsners out there. It's got the tradional grassy flavor with a little bit of hops. Could totally use mmore hops no doubt about that. This beer has a fizzy white head and a golden yellow color. The aroma is the best part of the beer. I feel that this beer is much too watered down.

A- Translucent gold, very still not much activity with a low head.

S- Floral nose some slight hay in there. Which isn't all that great.

T- Bitter but no malt very low on taste overall. Its kind of there but not really.

M- None just thin and water.

D- Not much here if you like this then it would be easy to drink a lot of them but I personally won't be having another.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops. Taste is big on hops, not much else. Definatly lacking malts and the refreshing nature of most pilseners. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and has below average drinkability. Overall I found this to be a mediocre effort.
