Poured into a pint glass. A light yellow color, just a film of head, lots of carbonation. A real hoppy smell and taste. Tasted orange zest up front with a hoppy profile, the carbonation leaving with a tingle on the tongue and a clean palette. A very hoppy Pilsner leaving a great tasting palette! Wouldn't be my favorite, but I would drink it again.

Very bitter for a Pilsner, recommended if you like the Pilsner from Northern Germany, e.g. Jever. Crisp and refreshing.

Aug 2013 On tap Rattle n Hum. So now it's summer & I'm thinkin' pils would be perfect. This contradiction of flavors leaves me wanting. Sure it's got crispness that I'm looking for, but it's body, as noted by the creamy head has it lingering on the tongue. Between the bitterness & the body, I'm looking for a glass of water on the side.

03/15/12 Solid body with a slight bite. Wholesome pilsner but not for summer drinking IMO. Better for fall.
