Ah, Pinkus. Pinkus Pils. Thanks to Cam and Dan for both sharing 500mls.

A - Dark yellow pour with some haziness. Plenty of rising bubbles and a nicely retaining white head. Good beer-y appearance.

S - Lots of grain, wheat, cereal, some herbal hop, kinda unfortunate cardboard note. Pretty straight up-dirty-sorta-skunked pils scent with a strange appeal to it.

T - Taste is much better, less paper. Very lager-y with grains, toasted bread, biscuity malt, also an improved hop bill with lemony and herbal flavors coming through.

M - Good spritzy carbonation and a decent body. Crispness.

O - The slightly skunky scent is a bit of a bummer but overall a pretty solid pilsner, wouldn't mind sessioning this one.

A- 500ml bottle split into three glasses with a pale yellow body. A white crown builds up to half a finger with a frothy texture. Decent head retention down to a medium ring. Lacing is spotty.

S- Lager yeast slight funk with some sulfur but just a tiny hint of it. Herbal and spicy Noble hops make up the rest of the aroma. Pils grains hinting at a light sweetness.

T- Bitterness and hops pick up quite a bit from the aroma for me with herbal, grassy and spicy notes making up a slight majority of the flavor. Pils grains, lager yeast, a hint of fruits but mostly clean and just a bit sweet.

MF- Body towards the light end with a crisp, silky consistency. The carbonation is medium-high with a moderately bitter finish.

Not a hop-bomb pilsener but there is quite a bit of character from them. Spicy and herbal with a certain crispness and mostly clean yeast.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.
