3.84/5 rDev -1%
11.2 oz bottle poured into a Rastal 0.2l pokal glass. Batch 5034.
Appearance: Clear gold color with a persistent thick white head. Lots of persistent thick strands of lacing.
Smell: Floral with some mild fruit like notes with a deep inhale. Not strongly aromatic.
Taste: Quick hit of crisp bitterness up front, then a cracker-like malt middle, and then a lingering noble hop finish. A hop forward pilsener.
Mouthfeel: Sticky and maybe a little oily on the teeth with good carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall / Drinkability: A full flavor pilsener, but perhaps just above average although high marks for appearance. However, it is a very drinkable beer. Like many German pilseners I've had, I feel this one is engineered to be drank in high quantities and go with a wide range of food, which in this case was pizza. I could easily have another one as everything together works well and it compliments/accents food, but doesn't get in the way.

A: Straw gold with a massive white head.
S: Stuffy Pilsner grainy smell. Some off smells as well.
T: Has a delicate light fruitiness with a bitter finish. Leaves a papery tasting breath of air in the mouth. I suppose it's reasonably bitter for a soft Pilsner. Not very effervescent.

Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.
Pours a clear golden yellow, with nice, visible carbonation. A 2 inch head forms. Little spots of lacing down the glass.
Floral hop scents, with some biscuity malts, a little bit of black pepper.
The taste is similar. Just an awesome, flavorful, complex, easy drinking pilsner. A little bit malty sweetness, but mostly dry floral and slightly bitter hop flavor. Some great Noble hop taste in this one.
Light bodied, crisp, refreshing as hell and oh so drinkable.
This is one's a classic, always nice to step back from the crazy brews once in a while and respect something more subtle, but not any less complex.

12oz : pilsner glass
Clear, golden yellow with a foamy white head.
Grassy, floral hops, well balanced with a crackery malt bonebone.
Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.
A very well done pilsner though I would love a chance to try a more fresh version of this.
