4.6/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving: 330mL bottle, poured into various glasses
Served: Many times between March-July 2012

Appearance: A clear, yellow. Light, but not as light as some AALs. Definitely looks like a pilsner because of the lighter roasted malts used.

Smell: Smells 'beer-y', clean, fresh. A little hint of hops somewhere in there.

Taste: Wow! You might not be able to really smell hoppiness at all, but it is in there. This is one very refreshing beer- the lighter body from the light malts is really played well with the hops you taste on the back end. This is no hop bomb and pales in comparison to American beers with hops, so don't go into this expecting some floral hop-bomb. It's substantially more subtle than that, but they are still there. The beer also tastes crisp and clean. The hoppy notes on the back let it clean up well and invite another sip. Tastes 'dry' in the wine sense.

Mouthfeel: Very nicely carbonated for the style. Refreshing.

Overall: A fantastic beer. One of the major beers of the Hochschwarzwald region (the other being Fürstenberg, and one of the three major beers of Freiburg (others: Fürstenberg, Ganter), and easily bests both of these. This beer has a strong cult following in the Black Forest region. If you're in the area, definitely check it out. I can't speak, however, to on-tap or bottled varieties purchased in Northern Germany or England, where they also distribute.

A great German pilsner. Comparable in taste to Alpirsbacher, another notably hoppy German pils. Definitely a sessionable beer.
