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.

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.

Pours a faintly chill hazed light golden color with a huge fluffy white head that persists well. .From a green bottle smelled a bit of skunk and sulfur when first opened, but really aired out well. Caramelized melanoid bready pilsner malt with a hint of spicy floral hops make for a wonderful lager aroma. The flavor is sweet sugary bready malty goodness with faint balancing hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet watery mouthfeel. This is a pretty damn good pilsner. Light clean simple flavorful refreshing, I may buy more of this.

Pale golden straw color with a frothy looking head that pours an initial 2 fingers high. Smells of lightly spicy and clean grassy hops with soda-cracker-like pils malt undertone. Taste is more balanced that I would have guessed from the nose. The initial bitterness from the hops is almost immediately supported by a soft biscuity malt that smooths the bitter edge into a dry crispness. Has one of those dry but quenching finishes that makes me want to take another drink immediately after the last drink.

50cl bottle poured into Spaten seidel

BBE 30 Jan 2013

A- 4 finger tight white creamy head sits atop a straw blonde body with a bit of a hue. Lacing and head retention are very good. Mark off for clarity.

S- Earthy hop, peppery, some lemon in there too.

T- Lemon zestiness up front balanced by the more earthy hops and peppery notes coming through. Finish is lager clean with a subtle hint of earthy hop lingering.

M- Delicate on the palate. Medium carbonation, light body.

D- Looks and smells great. The flavour profile is excellent, i just would have liked the flavours to be slightly bolder, particularly the hop bite. Nevertheless, mouthfeel is faultless for me, so so easy to drink. A refreshing clean lager, if being pick just needs a bolder flavour intensity. Great stuff.

Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruit, and some grassy and hay aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
