New Brunswick (Canada)

3.9/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

firstly, iam biased as a lover of all things pils. secondly our selection in eastern canada barely ranges to steigl. so i'll take what i can get. anyway. bitburger.

appearance: vigorous pour into regular barstock pintglass. very clear, cascades of bubbles, perfect 1.5" head, head stays nicely even after a few drinks down, laces show each drink.

smell: not alot of nose to this pils, got a slight hoppy funk near the start, not skunky almost a distant woodsmoke smell, mixed with a few grassy grainey notes, pretty awesome when you can actually catch a sniff, but youve gotta try.

taste: starts off sharp and crisp with a very strong pilsner style, *another drink*,smooth fluffy and easily drinkable after the first snap , i find it's almost to the halfway mark down the pint until i can really get a feel for this beer, at that point it levels out to a nice grainey pils .which might be why its a fave of mine, its understated, but it has depth. kind of a tough one define, think pilsner...but very clean, and foamy,almost dry at times, but thats in an endearing way.

mouthfeel-sharp to start, strong hop presence. levels out like nothing ive ever had, finish is clean with a bit of foamy dryness that just makes me want to drink more of it.

overall: if pils is what you are after this is a good choice, i personally love this beer, and could talk about it for as long as required,pairs up amazingly with just about anything spicey. cooked meats. whatever. its a great beer. and i find it cuts that hankering for a crispy pilsner like no other.

4.46/5  rDev +28.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pale straw colour. More pale than most lagers. Very large amount of bubbles streaming up the tall pilsner glass. An ok head and good lacing left sticking to the sides to the end of the drink.

Lovely herbal hop aroma. Sweet and leafy smelling.

The taste, as with the aroma, is of herbal hops with and is very delicate and pleasant. The finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness at the end of the sip.

There is a great mineral water mouthfeel with light carbonation.

Overall this is a superb German pilsener. Ticks all the boxes for the style and is characterful enough to be considered interesting as well as thirst quenching.

My mark out of one hundred would 87.
