Undated bottle poured into pint glass. It pours a bright, clear golden color with half a finger of soapy, milk-white head and lacing. The myriad bubbles ascending the glass give it a champagne look. There's little on the nose, mostly cracker and grass with a whiff of spice and yeast. The taste is dry and grassy with a solid base of cracker malt. There is a hint of spice and some insignificant hop notes at the finish. This pilsener is crisp and dry, with lively carbonation, and truly sessionable with its 5% ABV. Perhaps the carbonation could be dialed down somewhat. I have to say I'm a little surprised by the low ratings. This is a nicely brewed pilsener with more flavor than I expected. This is a fine beer for yardwork or warm weather lounging.

Is it a Pilsener?
Sort of tastes like a Pilsener.
It's too carbonated and bitter to be a Pilsner which is usually
Smoother and maltier.

I didn't look at the reviews and saw the style. Hmm..

It's an ale, influenced by the German style.

Poured a clear golden color in a Jack's Abby pint glass with a 2 F head.

Very floral, fruit, lemon aroma. quite nice. I can't recall any Pilsener with this aroma.
Very carbonated, light body, easy drinking.

Fruity taste with a crisp dry bitterness.

Disagreement here. I just drained poured a well known Maine brewer's beer which is a "summer Ale". This on the other hand, is quite drinkable.

An excellent light lager.

Golden color, a little hazy presence, with frothy white head and lots of lacing. Smells of grass and a little hops. Tastes, yeasty cracker, herbal, with nice crispness. Finishes dry and clean. A great beer for the region and not a bad German pils.

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever. The aroma is huge on the skunk as soon as I pop the cap. Clove and light sugary malts round it out once that dies down a little. The flavor is light sugary malt with hints of clove and and a bit of earth. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. I drank most of it, but I don't think I would again unless I were at the source. I thought this was only ok.

Pours a clear slightly darker golden color. Topped with a small and quickly disappearing white head.
There's not much to the nose, just a slight hoppy aroma, barely noticeable.
Likewise the taste. Some initial sweetness, followed by a very watery body and almost no distint finish. Easy to drink, but not much to the taste.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Bright pale gold, lots of lace

SMELL: Dried grass, lemon pith, floral, mildly biscuity, herbal, very clean

TASTE: Exceptionally crisp, lighter body, very grassy, crackers, bready, cooked veggies, modest hopping, herbal, extremely dry finish

This one just gets by. Digging deep within the dryness, some subtle complexities come forward to keep our palates in check. While it may not stand up against the finest of German Pilsners, it ends up being a pretty damn good beer. We can only imagine that local patrons of this brewery are quite thankful.

Bottle had at The Armenian Tavern in Old City Jerusalem.

Exp 16/07/2014

Big fluffy head fades at med pace, nice lacing, crystal clear golden pils color.

Nose very light, little straw and toasty pilsner, light tin and fruity lager, little unhappy lager, dirty water.

Taste lighter as well, little straw and toasty pilsner, little grainy, light fruity lager crisp, light grassy hops, little sticky. Light syrupy, mild to fair bitterness, hint of a sulfury unhappy lager and touch skunk. Finish is crisp med bitterness, light grassy hops and fruity lager.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall kinda meh, a bit of unhappy lager sulfury notes, and so-so flavors that are very light. Enjoyable for really hot days but maybe not much otherwise.
