Served from a bottle.
Pours with a typical pils appearance, but with a weak head.
Aroma: Light malts and grains with only mild spicy hops.
Flavor: follows the nose: this is mild even for style.
Overall: a solid but unremarkable pils; well crafted but just too tame.

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

Appearance: misty golden-yellow body with a two finger white head that stays around for a while and not much on the lacing front; champagne like bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass

Aroma: grains, white bread, fresh and clean

Flavors: sweet grains; buttered biscuit; herbal-mineral water; little grassy on the back and aftertaste; lime water on the finish

Mouthfeel: firm carbonation; sweet up front; grassy feel lingers on the palate; light tart-twang on the finish; the tart-twang is reminding me of lime water;

To the Point: a very tasty German Pilsener;

Poured two fingers of head on a hazy, lighter straw colored body.
The aroma is great. Lots of grain with lemon and a little banana.
The taste is awesome too. It has a nice fruit flavor to it: banana and lemon again. There is a moderate bitterness back there too. Easy drinking.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable.

Served in a bottle at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy pale yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy white head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer along with a thin to medium thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready and cereal grain malts with slightly light aromas of grassy and floral hops.

T: Similar to the smell, upfront this beer has a moderate strength combination of bready and cereal grain malts. After that there is a light amount of grassy and floral hops. A moderate amount of bitterness lingers in the finish of this beer.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable but not as clean as a lot of other beers in this style (German Pilsener) - likely due to the fact that it seems to be unfiltered.

A-Pours a lemon/honey yellow with a thick, bright white head that dissipates slowly.

S-noble hops, slightly sweet, malty, and yeasty

T-similar to the nose: lemon, noble hops, more yeast and bread notes than expected, and slightly on the sweet side. The malts seem to slightly outweigh the hops, but good flavor.

M-nice and syrupy with just the right amount of carbonation

D-Even though it is slightly on the sweet side, one could definitely drink many of these in a session. Its a great session beer.

Overall, this is a pretty good German Pilsner. Its not as hoppy and doesn't have as much bite as other versions of the style, but its still worth a try. It is a steal for the price, $1.49 for about a pint size bottle.
