Pours clear and golden with fat and sumptuous head of foam that is slow to fall. Perfect bubbles can be observed as you wait. The unique character in the pils is in it's deep breadiness. The malt is dry, crisp and not too sweet. The nose brings you white bread, a demure touch of floral hop. On the palate the malt is doughy and smooth but also crisp. Moderate carbonation brings it across the palate delightfully. The hops are cool and herbal. They finish the beer with a touch of sweetness to compliment the dapper malt. Good rich grain, a bit husky. The bitter is steadfast and a bit more than moderate The carbonation refreshes the palate and lets the bitter linger while all that bread is brought to the swallow. A surpising moment of richness, then a light lemon crisp hop to finish it dry and with a slight astringent bite. Very sophisticated.


For me this is a pils that stands far above the rest in a style where excellence is expected. This one has earned my highest recommendation.

Had this from bottle with enjoy by date of 05/2015 (drinking it in Oct 2014). Very nice German Pilsner with lots of sweet bread flavorings. Light on the hops. Very easy to drink and sessionable. Highly recommend.
