From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue V:

Finally, the traditional 500mL bottle has arrived. This is the same bottle size that a German would get, yet it comes in a reusable plastic carrier that holds 20 bottles. Now if we could only convince the US consumer this is more practical.

The lacing from a hard pour leaves a lively crest on the glass--right-to-style clarity shows its bright golden yellow color. Fragrant hop aroma of earthy, minty wild herbs and fresh cut grass, clean through and through. Crispness rides on top with a big refreshing character, smoothness rolls over the palate and cleans house with a fluffy moderately-sized body. Bitterness is drawn out and does not simply hit the taste buds with one whack. Within that it throws a smattering of lemon, herbal, faint mint and spicy flavor. The dry malt backbone sustains and holds this beer together very well. Crusty baguettes come to mind as it wraps up.

Looking for a straight up, everyday Pils? Here it is.

Presentation: 11.2 oz brown bottle with a white a gold label, “Enjoy the best taste before” date and a blurb about the beer in the back label.

Appearance: Mild haze amongst the stiff straw colour and topped with a white fluffy and creamy head that leaves a web like lace down the glass.

Smell: Faint white grape and a noticeable spicy herbal hop in the clean aroma, fresh husked grain in the nose too.

Taste: Light to medium in body and powdery crisp mouth feel. Light but sturdy malt flavour, grain flavour start to finish. Sharp bitterness that hits as soon as the carbonation peaks, assertive spicy flavours with herbal, tea and dried veggie undertones are complexities the hop profile lends. Hop leaf / herbal flavour lingers further than the spiciness with a very clean grain after taste.

Notes: An easy to drink traditional German Pils, clean and quick. A very refreshing light session beer. Surely a step or two above St. Pauli Girl and Beck’s. Could make for a most excellent fall back beer to have in the fridge year round.

I didn't mind this beer at all. A very crisp and refreshing pils with a fairly unique, spicy and interesting hop character ... and a slighly sweet, bready/grain rounding malt sweetness and medium body. Loved the pillowy creamy white head and its retention too. Aroma was typical though -- light sulfur, grain with delicate herbal hops on the side.

Easy drinking ... with some character.

From 07/10/14 notes. Poured into a pilsner glass.

a - Pours a crystal clear bright yellow color with one finger of fluff white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, bready malts, wheat, German malts, earthy notes, dough, and biscuit malts. Nice nose, lots of bread and grains.

t - Tastes of grains, bready malts, light floral hops, earthy malts, dough, bsicuit malts, and wheat. Little step up from the nose, a little more flavor here. Nice.

m - Light, crisp body and low to moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a nice, crisp, easy drinking pilsner. Nothing mind blowing but solid and what I was looking for.
