Poured from a 500mL bottle into a pilsner glass. Bright golden color and dense long lasting white head. Great floral aromas. Taste is delicate and refreshing with the same floral notes and just enough tangy hops.. Good carbonation & medium mouthfeel. This is everything a great German pilsner should be. Darn near perfect.

i liked this pils a lot, a good brewery that i havent had nearly enough beers from. frothy in the glass, i mean a big tall white head with great retention and a lot of bubbles, but its not all that lighter, a darker shade of golden, goldenrod more, less yellow, more dense, richer. the nose and taste both produce fresh cereals, grassy hops, very german all the way, but less dusty on the grain, a touch more weighted crystal malt, and a yeast strain thats both clean and extremely flavorful, which is uncommon in the style to say the least about it. its bready and sturdy and unlike most others, which i think makes this beer special. a little filling for a pils with all the body, and maybe dominant for more delicate foods, but its a darn good beer, interesting its organic, and i think something a little more robust on the pils spectrum, nice in cold weather. well made.

Organic Ur Pils pours a crisp, crystal clear bright pale straw to gold with a 1” thick white foam cap. It has a grainy malt nose with hints of floral. The body is just below medium and the carbonation is moderate. A hint of initial sweetness gives way to a smooth, dry, crisp finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Carlsberg pilsner glass.

Look: The body is slightly hazy, deep straw yellow color. The head is white and foamy, it recedes to a light film. Light spots of lacing are all that remain.

Aroma: Lots of grassiness, grains, malty sweetness. A very faint banana fruitiness.

Taste: Very papery and tastes like cardboard. But banana-like flavors coat a grainy, malty body, slightly musty.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, creamy.

Overall: Perhaps I bought an old bottle, but this just tasted too musty and papery to me. It was lacking any real flavors that popped.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lacing. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid Pilsener, obviously showing signs of age. Well balanced pale malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink despite lacking carbonation. It was still pretty enjoyable as it stood.

Very interesting in flavor. Is a light golden color with some cloudiness to it. Taste is unique. Kind of sweet and perfumey with hints of banana, I think. It's also a bit nutty, and feels a bit heavy going down, but overall, pretty decent.
