Pours a bright clear pale yellow with a fluffy head of two fingers. Smell is not strong but well balanced on style with a hint of lemon. Tastes of malts and noble hops, which balance the sweetness. It is just delicious and goes down smoothly. Light to medium body and light carbonation, which makes for an exceptional drinkability. You could down a liter in less than you say good morning. What a simple deliciousness, yet world class beer. Up there with Weihenstephaner as the best Pilsner i have had.

Great pils! One of the best I've had. From a 500 ml. can into a pilsner glass. Poured a nice fluffy and white bubbly head; yellow-gold color, typical for this style. Sticky lace on the glass; a nice cream ring around the edges. Smelled like citrus, light spice, peppery, and some malted barley grains. At first it is a bit sweet on my palate, but it finishes dry, slightly bitter, and peppery. There is a little lemon zest in there as well. It finishes smooth and crisp; balanced and light, yet fulfilling. Overall, this is a great German pils. It is especially great for an end-of-summer brew. Sad to see the transition into fall.

Aug '13. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Still strikes me as pretty much the same. Worth one or two.

08/16/12 On Tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. A tad bitter, but not a distraction. Full bodied & bready on the tongue w/some herb/spice in the aroma. Solid character but a bit weighty for a session, Definitely worth a place at the table.

Pale clear golden color looks like a macro light bit tasting reveals some substance, especially worth the substantial herbal/Grassy hop load.
Near medium body.
A light but hop forward German pils.
