DATE TASTED: May 1, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner pilsner... OCCASION: a 78-degree day begging for a pilsner!... APPEARANCE: cloudy, hazy; almost appears unfiltered and murky golden; thick white head recedes swiftly; zero lacing as well... AROMA: fragrant hops suggest lilac and heavy bubblegum; a bit of honey too... PALATE: smooth, mellow, and slightly fizzy at the teeth; extremely drinkable and thirst-quenching...TASTE: rather subdued, suppressed lemon-grass spritz; some doughy malts arrive late--not as clear in its profile as expected... OVERALL: a surprisingly soft, unsubstantially flavored pilsner from a place I expect pilsners to fall like leaves; not sure the organic element has much to do with the look or taste, but the smoothness offsets the weak profile slightly...not sure what to make of this one in the end, except that its end was rather swift, so something did its job.

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

Appearance: The beer is a golden-yellow. More of a yellow straw color. The head is full and white. The foam dissipates slowly leaving a pretty lace around the glass. The beer is a bit hazy but good looking. There are also a nice amount of bubbles.

Smell: The nose is yeasty and bread like. There is a tad bit of sweetness from the malt. There is a very light aroma of citrus from the hops.

Taste: Ur- Pils has a nice sharp spicy flavor from the hops. It finishes dry with some grassy notes. The mouth feel is on the lighter side. There is an ample amount of carbonation to make it refreshing. There is a bit at the end that stays on my tongue.

Overall: Overall this beer is refreshing and a good drinking beer. A simple German Pilsner that is brewed to style. I enjoy the sharp bite at the end and the dry finish. It is also an overall good looking beer. Would buy again.

Another from my first days of trying new beers, and not having sampled in a long while.

A -- Hazy pale straw with a creamy white head that settles slowly. Since this is "organic" I wonder if it's filtered or not. The haziness reminds me of Kellerbier, but not a straight Pils.

S -- Spicy to citric hops. Small amount of bready malts, but pretty lean.

T -- Light, spicy hops. Some mild bready malts and a finish of herbal hops. The hops linger lightly into the aftertaste with some light malt sweetness.

M -- Soft to dry mouthfeel with a light medium body.

O -- A pretty lackluster Pilsner. Another rather disappointing example from a brewery that was once a sought-after import.

Pours a very hazy straw color yellow with enough bubbles rising to the top and a creamy head of bone white foam that left good lacing. Nose is exactly what it should be. Yeasty, with a sour twang. Little citrus and some grain and bready malt. Taste was flat and I will say that I thought it might be old. There is a freshness code on the bottle but not in date form and in the store I just bought it anyway. The taste was a little too smooth. I would say tame and it just wasn't crisp. The yeast had plenty of bite on the nose but that did not translate into the drink. It was even a little chalky in the middle and a bit drying. It had all the other elements of a good pils. It had a light lemon, little bit of grass and a soft bready malt. Finished almost dry but muddled overall. Mouthfeel was so soft that I thought it out of the ordinary for a pils.

I was a bit disappointed but I would say to try this one anyway. It's organic and it could simply be that this bottle was not fresh.
