2.66/5 rDev -32.7%
Uh-oh, green bottle alert! Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a very cloudy pale yellow color, nowhere near the bright, clean, clear gold I expect in the style. The beer poured with about 1-1/2 inches of bright white head that had very good retention and moderate lacing.
A slight skunk aroma drifted out as soon as I popped the cap. When I poured it over, the skunk strongly filled the air. Once I dove past that, the grain and hop scents were very subdued and mellow. On the tongue, things were a bit better. The base grains and soft hops were more of a presence, but the skunk was still very noticeable.
The body was fairly typical, maybe a touch fuller than average, with a finish that wasn't as dry as I would have liked. Drinkability was hurt by the skunk factor. Overall, a pretty Meh example of the style. You can pass it over, unless you're looking for the tick.

Appearance: very light straw color which is what this type of beer is supposed to look like. There was not much head on the pour. Lots of bubbles in the beer, and relatively see through. Just missing a dense head.
Smell: I smell a very dense aroma of malt, more than hops. This type of beer is supposed to be more hops than malt. Reminds me of a domestic beer.
Taste: This tastes a lot like the German beers I've had before, maybe i haven't developed a taste for these beers yet. I don't taste hops, nor do i taste the malt. There isn't much citrus flavor either.
Mouthfeel: light beer, very drinkable with no carbonation. Very refreshing.
Overall: Another recommendation by Sam's Quik Shop, not too impressed with this one. Maybe next time.

This came from a green glass bottle, but without skunk. Poured with a small, fine head that slowly faded and a little lace. Color is a very slightly hazy yellow and has some small bubble trails. Aroma is grain, malt, a little hop. Flavor shallow, with noticable bite on the tongue from the carbonation, a little underlying malt sweetness and only a hint of hop. Smells better than tastes. Body is ok, carbonation a bit sharp. Finish is like flavor and has some length. Also, surprisingly, a bit of alcohol warmth. Nothing special; better than macro and nice that it's organic.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. No freshness date, but there is some sort of code on the label . . . Squat, long-necked bottle is unlike any other I've seen. not digging the green glass though.
A: Dull straw color with a little haze. Rocky white head retains well and leaves plenty of sticky lacing behind.
S: Bready pils malt aroma. Soft herbal hopping, faint pulpy lemon. Touch of sulfur and minerality. Yeasty.
T: Very grainy up front. Husky. Touch of sulfur and minerals. Hint of grape leaf. Dough. Mild grassy hop, slight tick of lemon. Bready yeast. Grain and bready yeast on the finish.
M: Light in body. Creamy with a light firmness. Moderately strong, prickling carbonation. Unfortunately some husky astringency shows up as well.
O: This pilsner is a little rough around the edges and needs a some refining. The husky grain flavor/astringency is mostly the culprit.

11.2oz bottle served in wide mouth glass
A- Golden yellow; slightly darker than many pilsners. Ample white head with good retention.
S- Strong aroma for style. A lot of pilsner malt with grassy and earthy notes, and some hop presence.
T- An amplified pilsner with somewhat stronger flavor than average. Clean finish.
M- The mouthfeel is light with a good amount of carbonation.
D- The drinkability is good for a pilsner, but I definitely prefer a good Czech pils.

.5L brown bottle, best before 4/24/11.
Pours a nice, lightly hazy yellow-gold with a good two-finger head. Retains at a thin layer with some lacing.
The aroma is very woody and earthy for a Pils, not so much of that typical sulfuric-Noble thing going on.
The flavor is nice and clean. Again the woody leafiness is present, along with other signs of hops: grassiness and a subtle tangy citrus character. The malts are restrained and lightly bready. The mouthfeel is smooth and softly carbonated, though it still falls a bit flat on the palate.
This admittedly wasn't the freshest of bottles as I'm drinking this just over a month before expiration, but it's still a solid Pils with a mellow, natural hop character.

Pours a slightly cloudy dark golden yellow color with a one finger frothy with head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic chunks of lacing are left behind.
Pilsner malt aroma with hints of earthy hops, citrus fruit, straw and grass.
Nicely balance with a decent amount of earthy, piney hops balancing out the pilsner malt. There's also some sweet citrus flavor, possibly lemon peel, along with a slightly earthy grass and straw character. The earthy hops counter the sweet malts notes very well making this a clean, crisp beer with a slightly dry finish.

I poured this nice beer into my tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer was very blond and had a giant head that was really thich and stiff. The beer smelled really bready like fresh made bread. Very nice taste with a little of that green taste german lagers taste like.
I will buy again.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma kind of faint but contains lager yeast, grain, light malts and a good amount of hops.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of grain and lager yeast, then some light malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is good for the style and provides a nice balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.
M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent poundable beer worth drinking for a long time.

I don't drink much organic beer but thought this would be good to check out.
Pours a light gold with a huge head into my glass. Literally. Robust presentation.
Sweet, grainy malt with a touch of hops in the nose. A bit skunked but nothing too bad.
Taste reflects the skunking but still manages to retain the flavor characteristics of a middle-of-the-road pils. Sweet, buttery malt is still there for those wondering.
Lingering sweet, grainy malt at the back of the throat. Simple. Tasty.
Not a bad example of the style!
