look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

DATE REVIEWED: May 17, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ommegang footed... OCCASION: a day of home prep for Joey's 4th birthday party... APPEARANCE: clean, light golden body; white head reams unevenly... AROMA: yeasts produce a bubble gum aroma; soft floral hops also make this pilsner an intriguing encounter--improves the pervasive zinc/copper metal scents... PALATE: soft start, hard finish; medium-bodied but lingers at the throat; pretty similar pilsner profile... TASTE: slightly fruity, with pear and apple, tempered by a water hose-like hard water finish; adequate, but not to be distinguished or sought after...OVERALLL: wasn't sure where to place expectations--closer to Bitburger or Warsteiner; this beer carves out its own niche, a bit floral and yet with enough rough edges to add strength without disturbing the overall enjoyment of the beer....

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a pilsener glass. A moderate straw yellow color with an impressive thick white head collapsing inward from the middle, this lager has a nice sulfur and cereal grain nose, laced with herb and grass hops (including some light lavender, chamomile, and seed spice notes). Smells clean, brisk, and green with pronounced noble hopping. Palate is a fine synergy of pale malts (maybe a hint of sweetish corn) and minty green hops, along with subtle lemon, cashew, dried vegetable, licorice, hay, and sour grape, with a vegetal celery-like bitterness slowly building over time. Robust and flavorsome but no one element goes berserk on the palate. Moderate body for a German pilsener, with the carbonation restrained for the style and a dry, grassy, faintly nutty finish. A kindler, gentler pils (looking at you Krombacher) but nevetheless full of flavor and body. Fantastic.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bright yellow with foamy white head that settles into persistent cap. Nice lacing runs down glass but does not stick. Lots of carb.

Clean sulphur with noble hops. Light corn.

Nice, crisp malt with mild earthy hops.

Moderately dry with good carbonation.

Overall - a very tasty and well made pilsner that is comfortble in its skin. A keeper.

I am generally not a fan of pilsners, and this one is no exception. This beer is very thin and bright-ish yellow, with no head to speak of. And it tastes thin, and very flat, and bland. The lack of flavor only accentuates the flatness, and vice versa. I've had this beer before and disliked it then too. Will definitely avoid in the future.
