Not sure if an exceptional batch, but I found this beer delightful for the style without the skunking that others have noted.

A: crystal clear; light gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a wispy cap; very little lacing;

S: pretty skunky when I first opened the bottle; after 10 minutes or so, that was greatly reduced; not sure I've ever experienced that before; I can now clearly get cracker; still don't get any hops;

T: a little grainy with light malt; light bitterness through the long finish; no crispness and no hops other than the bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: flavor was disappointing;

It´s a good beer, maybe one of my favorite pilsners. It smells dull but has a lot of flavour, It´s also very cheap here in Mexico.

Brilliant clarity with light straw color and long lasting fluffy white head.

Getting a lot of German nobles hops in the nose, pils malt very noticeable with hints of DMS but is appropriate for the style.

Nice crisp, dry taste with a nice balance of noble hops and pils malt, small hints of DMS

Feel could be slightly more carbonated, still has good crispness to it, pleasant bitter aftertaste

A fine, fresh example of a German pilsner, a beer I would down a sixer of on a hot summer day.

A very enjoyable light tasting german pilsner. Not heavy at all. A great afternoon or evening brew when you are being involved with athletic activities on the weekend and don't want to be weighed down with a heavy german lager. (Leisure athletic activities with friends of course, bocce, horseshoes, etc ). Goes with most BBQ foods like an North American pilsner would, U.S. or mexican. Just wish they could market it at a lower cost in the U.S. of A. So I could share the love.
