Served on tap at Zum Schneider in Montauk, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that slowly reduces to a thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts with lighter notes of floral and grassy hops.

T: Very malty with strong flavors of bready malts. Moderate amounts of bitterness are contributed from the floral and grassy hops but the bitterness does not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Sessionable, easy to drink, and enjoyable. I enjoyed the maltiness and hop bitterness - fairly well balanced.

On-tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has good retention properties.
S: There are aromas of bready malts in the nose along with some hints of floral hops.
T: The taste is quite malty and has flavors of bready malts. A light amount of bitterness is present, which lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although the beer is rather malty, the hops nicely balance this out with enough bitterness to make this a session able beer.

International Green Week, Berlin 2012: Hall 12, the hall dedicated to German breweries and food to go with beer. We find a table and seats by the Andechs bar, leave the womenfolk to keep the area safe and we blokes start to forage for beers. Loads of breweries and beers to choose from I choose to try the Pilsner from this brewery, a new one to me and I like to try new stuff.

On-tap 0.3 litre glass: clear, light/pale golden body; good, well formed white head sat on top.

The nose was a mild mix of light hops and grains: nothing much, like most beers of this style.

The dry finish is superseded by a citrusy/lemony hop flavour that hides some bitter-sweet malts initially: those malts finally give way to the lingering dryness once the mouth has swallowed the last drop.

Medium body feel; this is a pleasant Pilsner without really doing anything, refreshing and thirst quenching more than satisfying, but fine non-the–less.

Part of my Bierverkostung at Lindenbrau Potsdamer Platz, Berlin. Served in a .2L glass.

A: Clear blonde, with a one finger head of sufficient cream and lackluster thickness.

Sm: Clean barley. A bit of malt. Crystal hops.

T: Slick open to crystal malt body with a fizzy typical pilsener finish. Built wrong! I'm convinced that the Czechs know pilsener and the Germans d not.

Mf: Fizzy coarseness is present but the beer is still smooth.

Dr: Very drinkable but overpriced. I expect more from Lindenbrau.

Now available in Manhattan at Zum Schneider.

A: Clear straw gold / gold. Bright white head. Long-lasting head retention. Fine bubbles rise steadily towards the surface.

S: Hops and malt greet you in the nose, in balance as they're supposed to be. It's herbal and spicy, even a touch floral, and backed by sweetish malt. Clean and fresh! Very nice.

T: Fresh! Bright malt and hop flavor. Solid bitterness. It's remarkably well-focused and balanced, delivering bready malt notes along with spicy and herbal hops that give it depth and dry it out. Quite possibly the best Pilsener I've ever tasted.

Wow! Fabulous - Sublime. Best ever pils in an extremely difficult field to exce. Served with a huge white, foamy, fluffy , textured, head and loads of lace. Color is a very clear, bright pale yellow gold. Aroma is beery, hoppy, malty, grainy, with a bit of spice. Flavor is where this beer excels! Like the aroma, but malt sweet that is perfectly balance with hop (very fresh) bitterness and spicey floral hop flavor and further enhanced by the body. Perfect carbonation and not too thin nor too heavy. Finish is clean and a paradox: satisfying yet leaving me wanting another. Fun! Session beer extraordinaire!!

Yet another of the stable offered at Winklmeierhof in Reibersdorf, Germany.

Clear and pale in appearance, kick ass head retention, as a good Pils should. Notes of hops, freshly cut grain and a touch of citrus. Smooth on the palate, good hop taste, and grains that smooth everything over. Slightly dry on the dismount. A good pils, and one I enjoyed more than a few times while in Bavaria.

Zum wohl!

Standard guest beer at the Lindenbräu in Berlin, part of my Bierverkostung (beer sampler). On-tap.

Clear pale yellow beer with a creamy, tight foam lace -- great head retention.

Faint lemon, grain and that traditional hop skunk aroma.

Creamy mouthfeel, light-bodied. Limey / salty hop flavour, a touch pungent. Mineral flavours and feel on the palate. Light bready, sweet towards the finish ... going grain dry.

A very solid pils. Most enjoyable.
