This Organic Pils marches to a beat of a different brewer. It pours a dull gold color with a nice sturdy white head and plenty of lace. An aroma of fresh bread, malt, hops and citrus lasts. There's more body than one normally associates with the Pils style. The hops are a bit spicier and less metallic than most Pils. A light herbal flavor mingles with a hint of lime and a bit of alcohol. If I were blindfolded I would have guessed someone had tried to blend a Hefe-weizen with an Alt. Hmmm!

Very different...I just finished a Scrimshaw Pilsener and then sampled this offering. It seemed much more like a wheat offering than a Pilsener. Head was nice and well-formed. Clinged to the side of glass a bit. Smell was slightly hoppy and fruity...Taste was light, but full bodied, leaving a pleasant slight tart aftertaste. Drinkability was very good, going down smooth with a nice aftertaste. I wasn't expecting the results I found...it wasn't as "pilsener" tasting as I expected. It was much more rounded like some of the ales I have sampled.

This brew poured a medium white head of finely sized bubbles that left very little lacing as it receded. It had a mild aroma of hops and malt and a wheat yellow cloudy body with yeast floating in it. It has a mild initial bite that smoothens in the finish. Its flavor was a bit fizzy and hoppy.

500 ml bottle. Poured a cloudy straw yellow, with a fairly decent head that quickly faded. Aroma is slightly malty, and of fresh cut hay. Taste is very mellow, low carbonation, and just plain mild. I kept waiting for more that just isn't there. Not a bad beer, I could drink this as a session beer, but I prefer something with a little more body to it.

First of all, I was not too impressed with this Pilsener. I just could not quite acquire a taste for this one. It poured a white creamy head. There was no lacing on the sides of my glass with this beer. The body was cloudy and the hue was yellow. The yeast was visible in my glass. It had a sweet aroma to it.

Yum! That was good.
I totally expected this to be a dud--all dusty, as it was, sitting sideways on the proprietor's shelf next to the hot fridge exhaust. But I'll be darned, this is one of the best damn pilseners I've ever eaten! Poured huge and foamy, with a Monsters-of-Rock head that sat up like stiff egg whites. The aroma was so lubricious and slippery with protien that I almost suspected the suspect Isinglass fish guts to be in there. But the body reveals otherwise. Nice hoppy punch in the nose, with that dark, musty, bottom-of-the-barrel, English-IPA sort of vibe, but more in line with the spirit of the TRULY HEAVENLY malt body that this beer posesses. Scrumptious as all get-out!

Opaque dark gold with a nice and bright head of 1/4 inch of consistant-sized small bubbles. Laces in sheets in a Pilsner glass. Slightly "dusty" and nutty aromas, sense of late summer harvests. Grassy and toasty malts, very flavorful in combination and yet restrained overall. Light body is well matched by a lack of overcarbonation. Finishes crisply but without a notable hop assertion.Minimal to no aftertaste. This is the last of the Pinkus selection at my store, I must say that I'm impressed by each as unique in their style while still conforming to overall style characteristics.

Another great product from Pinkus! My first actual unfiltered pils and looks similar to their weizen but a little less cloudy. Nice big white foamy head though like the weizen has. I'm not that big on Pils but I must say this is a good one. Great clean crisp flavorful beer. Classic Pils malts and only slight bitterness. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher, it's a quality brew.

Poured nicely with orange/yellow hue,with pretty good rocky head.Nice balanced smell with a nice crisp hop tone,also a little bread-like.I like the maltiness of this pilsner some overhop for the style but not this one.The hop came through but it was not to promident.Was pretty drinkable,I have had better but this wasnt bad at all.

Cloudy golden color with a pure white head that retained decently. Lacing was spotty at best. Grainy, bready, malty taste that was nice and smooth. Easy to have a few of these, very refreshing as a this genre should be. One of the better beers of this style that I have had.

pours to a golden color with a little cloudiness to it. the head is average in size; white and pillowy with a lot of sticky lace. you will smell a fine array of malts with an interesting bit of hops there.
the malts are arranged beautifully with a hop balance that just makes this beer a great brew. it has light carbonation, enough to make it crisp. it is very smooth with a medium to light body. the drinkability is right up there with the best of 'em. this is a fine pils, that is a must try for any beer drinker.

The pour is a somewhat obscure golden yellow to amber color; the head is portly in size, frothy in its texture, with the lace quite thick and sticky sheets to cling to the sides of the glass. The light musk or musty tone noticed in this beer as with most organic beers, not unpleasant and sometimes just barely discernable, you really need to hunt them down, malt and crisp, fresh and clean to the palate. Start malt and sweet, the top middling in feel, the finish crisply acidic, passably hopped with a very dry lingering aftertaste and a pleasant enough beer, worth the sample in my humble opinion.

Hazy yellow with a fine, frosty head that crawls up the glass with authority. The nose is quite ripe with sugary, candied, dried fruit, gum drops and Haribo candy. There is a faint whiff of alfalfa sprouts too. Rich, full texture is hewn into shape by bitter hops. Big, chewy, rustic flavor featuring notes of lemon, watercress and chervil. Seriously unique Pils.

Quite hazy (bottle conditioned), golden with a creamy 1/4" head that holds excellently and leaves some good lace. The aroma is of a sweetly floral and grassy hop that's lightly backed by malt. Excellent. The body is medium with a very fine and lightly effervescent carbonation that gently caresses the tongue and becomes quite creamy as it warms in the mouth. The flavor starts with a great blend of rich, sweet malt and a unique floral hop flavor that's at least partially from Hallertauer. The sweet malt decreases as it crosses the palate, revealing some more grassy hop flavors and some bitterness. It finishes dry and fairly short with some lingering hop flavor and light bitterness as would be expected of a good pilsener. Very well balanced, allowing the malt and hop flavors to remain clear throughout while also giving an enjoyable bitter bite at the start, and maintaining enough bitterness to keep it dry and refreshing. Extremely well done, however, I must note that it's important to obtain a fresh sample. This is not a huge seller in the U.S., and I've had many old & damaged bottles before I came across this fresh one. I should also note that all Merchant Du Vin products are conspicuosly absent of any dating. (Sorry Charlie, but you know it's true).

Hazy yellow in hue even before the yeast sediment is poured. The billowy, white, attractive persistent head leaves a good lace. Sweet honey and cracker notes in aroma, followed by a pleasantly herbal noble hop nose. Sharp, prickly carbonation and hop bitterness hits the palette at first, but fades quickly leaving bready notes and fairly high malt sweetness for style. Slightly musty, hay - like flavors are perceptible as well. Hop flavor is green and herbal. The finish is just a touch bitter, but honey - like sweetness lingers long after the sip. This is an odd pilsner but an interesting beer... malt sweetness is too dominant. It's definitely a beer worth trying, however.

Presentation: Sleek brown euro style 17 oz bottle with no freshness date.
Appearance: Hazy yellow straw with a dense compact well formed white head.
Smell: Malty and grainy (bread like), very mild tartness with hints of fruit and lemon.
Taste: Sparkling wine like carbonation makes for a very crisp mouth feel. Very rich in flavour with lots of grain on the tongue, some spicy and fruity flavours from hops and esters merely add to this complex brew. Hops do a little more than balance and leaves a touch of herbal flavour. More on the dry side leaving little sweetness and a earthy yeast taste tags along ... finish is long lasting with grain and residual hop flavour.
Notes: Very interesting with raw complexities ... packed with flavour and could be paired with numerous types of foods, Pan-Asian worked best.
