1 pint, 9oz brown bottle. Hazy golden maize color. Head is respectable, settles to a layer of steady foam and leaves some spotty lace. A small amount of sediment remains in the bottle. Aroma consists of lightly toasted malt that lends a fruity nose of pear and white grape. Hops figure prominently into the aroma as well adding a sharp pine and citrus combination. Taste incorporates the aromas into smooth satisfaction for the taste buds. There's some lemony notes to the dry hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and thirst quenching leaving a layer of bitterness behind. Drinkability is outstanding. It took some restraint not to pound this down. I enjoyed this one and will pick it up again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Clear golden color and an off-white rather compact, medium-tall head. Dissipation takes some time and leaves rich lacings behind.

S: Clean, mild honey-like sweet malt, bready. Reminds me of Swedish crisp-bread. Rich bitter hops. Nettles and hay.

T: Rich and almost creamy smooth malt, sweet and bready. Bitter hops are rather mild for this style, but actually rather well balanced with the malt.

M: Aftertaste is a bit short, but lovely bitter. Body is so smooth, medium-full. Carbonation is rich, but the bubbles are so small and non-aggresive.

O: A Bavarian Pilsener - not as heavy on the bitter hops as the Pilseners from northern Germany, but still nice.

Half-litre flip-top bottle taken on 16 Apr 2011 in the excellent 'Aufsturz', Berlin.

This is a good example of a Southern German Pilsner, smoother than those from the north, but full bodied and showing all the favourable attributes of the style: clear, golden colour, snowy white head and a hop content which is notiveable but not obtrusive in any way.

A little stronger than most Pilsners alcohol wise, but it hides it's strenght well. Easy to drink and even with a slighty bitter hop aftertaste it is one of the best Pilsners I've ever had.

Classic taste for a classic style. Big bitter - hoppy, bready beer. Much more taste from the smell to the taste. This is just a bigger in every way german pilsner. Pretty drinkable, but can't imagine putting to many of these down in a row, totally filling. Cool artwork as well.

On-tap at Beachwood,

A: Pours golden with a soft white head, lots of good lace.

S: Very bready, heavy pils type malt, sourdough.

T: Crisp full bready pils taste with a good hop balance. Nice grassy hop flavour. I like it, but it's not striking.

M: Crisp, clean, easy drinking.

D: Solid stuff. Definitely a likeable beer and a crowd pleaser. Glad to try it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

First and foremost, this is my favorite label art for a beer. The beer itself wasnt half bad either.

A: Hazy yellow, poured similar to a wheat. Nice fluffy white head that did lace parts of glass. Retention ok.

S: Earthy, pine, some buttery bread, and some citrus sweetness.

T: Citrus and earth tones present, and like the smell it goes down with some sweetness.

M: Cleanses the palate nicely. Crisp and flows nicely.

D: Extremely refreshing. Good example of a Pilsner style.

4.35/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bought during a German road trip. Bottled. Pours dark gold with a one inch head that fades quickly. Initial taste is good bitter hop flavor, not sweet. Leaves a bit of small lacing. The clean mouthfeel is typical of most German beers from the region. Slight grain, hoppy and a bit more stout than I expected. Finish is more of the same... good bitter hops kick and malt that sticks to your taste buds. I need to seek out the source next trip to Germany and see how it is on tap. A very good beer.

A: Deep, hazy yellow, light head, decent lace.

S: Earthy, biscuity, sweet.

T: Mirrors smell closely. Honey, biscuits, slight lemon on the back. Hops overwhelmed by the sweetness, which is fine by me.

M: Clean, refreshing as hell.

D: Only if I can find a bar serving these! What a nice seesionable brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from from a 500 ml swing-top brought back from Germany. Appears a clear straw gold with a bit of haze. Nutty and bready with an odd fruit and grain note that reminds me of muesli and dominates the aroma. Finished with a dry biscuit malt note and spicy hops. Overall, this is a well-balanced German pils and something a little different, but still within the style. Yum.

BuBLE pours a clear orangey gold with a cap of light and fluffy-creamy off-white.

Aroma is lightly sweet and solidly biscuity, with a noble, grassy overtone.

Much of the same shows up in the flavor. Solidly biscuity/munichy, subtly sweet with a gentle lemon overtone. Lightly spicy-grassy noble hops finish er off.

Medium bodied and softly smooth and lightly fluffy and creamy.

It's a solid offering for the style for sure. I won't shy away from it in the future. Looking forward to trying some more from Allgauer.

3.05/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

The aroma is sweet with grainy malt and light grassy hops. The appearance is copper gold with a two finger head that falls to near 0 before it should. The flavor is decent with plenty of bitterness to counter the sweet caramel malt. I just wish it was a friendlier bitterness. The palate is thin. This fits the style pretty good but does not stand out as particularly good.
