Had on tap at New World Tavern, Plymouth

Appearance: 1/4 head, medium carbonation, gold in color, clear

Smell: grass and honey

Taste: big dose of honey, grass and light hops in the background

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness in the finish, moderate carbonation, light bodied

Overall: Nothing too complex but a nice and light pilsner that I could have several glasses of. An excellent summer beer. Happy to have found this on draft.

Poured into a lager glass. On the lighter side of golden, with about a half-inch of head. A few flecks of lacing, a thin ring remains.

Nose is earthy, grassy hops, with a touch of flowers and honey.

A surprisingly earthy brew given the nose, but still the whole thing felt a bit reserved. Despite an overarching sweetness, the hops balance out the finish. Finishes dry and bready.

Mouthfeel is low-moderate body, moderate carbonation that gets you in the back of the throat. Easy to drink.

A tasty little pilsner, quite enjoyable to drink. Could have been a bit more robust, but still a very drinkable brew.

11.2oz bottle poured into a flute.

Pours a nice orange color with a small white head. Nose is malty sweet and creamy, very nice.

Taste is really malty creamy and smooth. It reminds me of budvar. It's got a mellow full mouthfeel. Overall a super tasty beer. Worth trying!

Appears a very pale straw golden hue, basically like watered down apple juice golden. Carbonation has fine bubbles streaming upward from the bottom of my 16 oz Gordon Biersch glass. Head forms thick and dwindles down leaving behind even thin lacing with each sip. Labeled a pils but definitely hits more along the lines of a Euro lager or pils than a German or Czech style. Aromatic starts off with a snappy skunky hop flow with grapefruit peel Saaz and herbal tones galore, light pale malt doesn't offer much sweetness here. Only clean mineral water notes with a touch of metallic character coming across my senses. Flavor wise this beer is clean with a crisp bitterness and dry finish, definitely a mass produced Austrian beer. Herbal skunk weed hop notes run rampant I can't even say pure Saaz here more cluster hops than crisp classic Noble hop flavors. Bone dry on the mouthfeel carbonation is crisp carries this light bodied pils well, but this just can't compete with the likes of Penn Kaiser Pils, Troeg's Sunshine Pils, or Stoudt's Pils. Drinkabiltiy, overall I could enjoy this occasionally but with Prima Or Pikeland in PA, I don't have to consider not so fresh imports from Germany or in this case Austria.

11.2 oz (.33L) bottle served in pint glass

A - normal for style: clear yellow amber like apple juice. White head with limited retention but lasting ring.

S - nice malty aroma with some caramel and no off odors.

T - normal for type. Clean malty flavor with some mild hop bitterness.

M - smooth and dry

A good pils with no flaws for style.

(Served in a footed strange)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a swirling microcarbonation and a creamy antique white head that takes up half the glass.

S- The clean aroma has some touches of green sulfur and a pils malt note that comes through as it opens up.

T- The green slightly dry hop taste has a slightly sweet sulfur note in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a slight creamy texture as long as the head last.

O- The nice clean character has just a touch of sweetness which compliments the pils malt and a hint of hops. There are no off flavors and everything is balance making this very easy to drink.

Poured a gorgeous golden color with a two finger white head that stuck around for almost the entire glass and a wonderful amount of bubbles. An excellent looking pilsner. Scents of crisp lager yeast, grainy malt and flowery hops. A very crisp and clean aroma, a nice classic pilsner scent. Flavor begins with a crisp combination of herbal and floral Noble hops and some nice grainy malt. Moves into more herbal and floral flavors, some more dry grainy flavors and a slight hint of sweet pilsner malt. Finishes dry with a nice hit of floral and herbal Noble hop flavors. Aftertaste is floral and herbal Noble hops. A very nice, simple, one-note, clean flavor profile, just like a pilsner should be. It is refreshing and pleasant. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a semi-drying feel. A good, crisp, clean and refreshing mouthfeel. Very true to style. Overall this is an excellent German Pilsner. It is crisp and clean in aroma, flavor and mouthfeel, as the style should be. It isn't complex at all, but for this style that is a good thing, and for a nice refreshing lager it is amazingly well done.

A clear and very bright yellow gold, this pils develops an bone-white airy head to about half a finger that falls somewhat slowly to a layer on top that puts down a mixture of spotting and patching on the glass.
Leaf and grass have a very light peppery spiciness to it in the hops, balanced by a somewhat honey-like sweetness and some fruity esters that are a little more tart than I expect. Breadiness in the malts, not quite as dry as some, leads to a little bit of a graininess sliding in underneath before going more crackery, as expected. The hops bite a little stronger on the tongue than I think, which is a pleasant surprise.
It's crisp and creamy with a high carbonation and, interestingly, a bit too much to the medium body. It's clean up front, something building lightly but just.
