Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a hazy, light straw amber with a thin white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass. Aroma of sweet, bready and biscuit malt, light grassy hops and skunk; a big burst of skunk from the bottle, but blends with the the other nice pilsner smells in the glass. Flavor is similar to aroma, bready and biscuit malt, toast (actual bread toast, not toasted malt), a hint of lemon, grassy and floral hops; there is something else in here that reminds me of a bakery, like sesame seeds or unusual flour. Nicely melded. Light bodied with peppery carbonation. A very nice pilsner with both an unusual look (hazy and light) and some complex, unidentifiable flavors that seem perfectly balanced in the profile. Nicely done. What an incredible tragedy that the initial aroma and aftertaste are both skunky. If it is true as an earlier reviewer from Germany said that this comes in a brown bottle domestically, these guys need to fire their entire foreign export packaging team. Dang. Nice enough to make me really look for this fresh or properly packaged.

Lovely fluffy white head settles to a nice 1/4" layer. The beer itself is ultra clear and light amber in color. Aroma is zesty, peppery, lemon, cracker grains, sweet and clean. Nice dry flavors....grains, spicy floral hops. This beer has a ripe greeness to it. Good slick mouthfeel. Carbonation is good but pretty chill for this style of beer.

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.
