4.45/5  rDev +12.7%

Poured into a pilsner a clear straw color with a thick egg white colored head atop that stuck like glue to the glass,alot of tiny bubbles,what a great pour.Probably the best aromas I have come across for a pilsner,lightly toasted and bready mixed a healthy does of floral and minty hops with both playing a major role,just a hint of honey to give it mild sweetness.Crisp and dry on the palate with a spritz of lemon,a little bit of dough in the finish to go with a good shot of leafy sharp hops.Wow I never thought I would give a pilsner such a high grade,this is an outstanding complex but delicate beer.I am going to get the whole line of Furst beers available to me now in my area.It's really that good!

3.54/5  rDev -10.4%

Poured from the bottle into a pilsner style glass.

A real nice classic gold, slightly lemony, but also just a hair of haze in this giving off a bit of dull character. Head is nice and white bright, soapy with a little bit of retention not too much. A good looking pils.

Nose has some light grassy senses, and some hop brightness. Light malts and very clean and crisp, hints more toward Czech it seems on the nose. Either way it's quite a nice basic bouquet.

Palate hits with a bit of a surprise. The body is quite light and wet surprsingly. Malt bread character doesn't really come through. Finishes crisp and classic, medium carbonation, with an ok feel, but lacking depth. Aftertaste had some medicinal hop quality just slightly, dare I see even macro tasting strangely.

Overall, I am happy to have tried this but I probably wont have this again for a German Pilsner from Germany.

Nice golden color. Not fizzy but leaves a good half inch head and nice lacing from start to finish. The first sip is full of hop flavor, just like I wanted and continues to tingle the taste buds. Hops and malt balance out nicely in the mouth, tangy and bright, never fades. There is nothing complex or fancy about this beer.Very dry. It seems to have all the characteristics of a pils that you would want: hoppy from start to finish, clean,dry and thirst quenching. Probably the beat pilsner I have tried and worth seeking out.

Classic, comes in a 0.5l bottle with swingtop(?) and ceramic cap. Pours in almost perfect leaving a forever lasting nice& thick white foam up on top. Nice golden and perfectly clear beer makes this appearance almost perfect.
Nose is one big pleasure too! Great Spalt hops and there massivly with its perfect flower/freshness. That with some maltflavour in the background and a slightly influence of yeastesters make the smell wonderfull.
Taste is full also. A lot of maltflavour for a pilsner but who cares. Further sweet(maltyness), fresh before going in a good and clean bitterness. Aftertaste is as the taste; rich and a pleasure. Do I want more? Hell yes bring me lots.... is the first thought when I think of drinkability so must be more then OK.

Radical swing top bottle poured into a pint glass best buy date July 9, 2014. Purchased at total wine.

A: bright golden clear impressive head very nice lacing. This is how a pilsner should look. Textbook.

S: grassy and bready smells dominate and it's a delight

T: follows the nose nicely but there's also some nice hop presence to balance the biscuity malts.

M: flavors come together nicely for a crisp clean refreshing finish

O: wow, what a pleasure to drink. This is a benchmark for German pilsners and is reminiscent of those amazing Czech pilsners. If you find this, buy it.

Only the second Bier to have the honor of a score of 5. Add to that it's from the same brewery as the only ohter 5 I have given..They might being doing something right up there in Wallerstein....

Pils and Dunkles are my two favorite styles. To give a 5 is saying alot...I drink alot of the two styles and feel comfortable giving them such a high score. They have earned it! I got a Kister of both in my Keller. Stop by sometime and I drink a few with you.

Pours up a ultra thick creamy head that clings perfectly to the glass. Underneath this mamoth Schaumkrone is a brilliantly clear straw gold elixir. The aroma is dream-like featuring big bright flowery/spicy/minty hops. Oh so complex and then the big malt backbone kickes in with malt sweetness and hints of grain. This is it peope!!!! Upfront the Bier is bitter and smoothes into a nice malty sweetness and then finishes j"ust in time" dry with a lovely hop bitterness. But the big story here is the hops, hops, hops. Big spicy and floral they play the upfront rola and never let you forget you have a choosen a PILS and das means HOPPY. Hoopy yet cultured and refined. This is at this point the best Pils I have ever had. Find one!!!

Zum Wohl!!!

4.4/5  rDev +11.4%

500ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow, stray-hued body with a tall, foamy, white head. Notable clarity. Sticky lacing deposit mark every sip, every gulp.

Smell: A big whiff of pilsner malts, with notes of grain, dough, and fresh honey. Touch of yeastiness. Light, zestful hoppiness.

Taste: Sweetish pils maltiness, with little hints of honey basted grains. In slides a yeasty dough flavor, but, then an addition of the clover honey. Snappy hop character, giving touches of spice and hop, with plenty of bitterness to balance things out and make the way for a dry, crispish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's crisp, flavorful, pure, and delightful, offering up a satisfaction that seeps into your heart (and other internal organs).
