Serving: Bottle
Indecipherable date code


A:
Pours a nearly clear chamomile color with a couple fingers of perfectly structured white head. Good retention; speckled lacing. (4)

S:
Bready malt and a whiff of hop spiciness. (4)

T:
Follows in the smell's heels. Dough, white pepper, mineral bite, suggestion of tartness/astringency along with the finishing bite. (4)

M:
Pretty light body with biting carbonation and a dry, lingering finish. (4)

O:
A very nice example of a pilsner.
It pours fairly clear with a nice, tight twp-inches of white froth on top. The smell and flavor are both to style and pretty in line with my tastes as well. Bready malt and Euro hop offsetting it. The flavor has a little more going on than the aroma, but they do fairly well separately and together.
This is a nice beer that I'd be happy to try again and thrilled to have super fresh. (4)

Light gold color with white cap and decent lacing.

Aroma of crackery malt and lightly spiced hops.

Taste is sweet, clean bready malt with a touch of spiced hops. Rich malt on entry with spicy hops riding along. Hops are the jockey but malt is the racehorse. Simple but well woven flavor threads last to the finish with a nice rounding off of these flavors in the aftertaste.

Light medium creamy texture with balancing carbonation.

As German Pilsners go this one falls into the 'oh that's nice' category which is to say a polite comment but the conversation continues on other matters.

Poured into flute. No head at all. Light straw color, with flakey detritus.

Nose is a mix of grain, fruit, and honey.

Taste is cracker, malt, light fruity notes and honey. Light herbal hops bitter it a bit.

Crisp, yet smooth mouth. Goes down sweet with a carb finish.

A charming organic pils with a good flavor.

Worlds first Organic brewery since 1816

A mostly clear, solid gold color. Fizzy but firm white foam cap. Lots of life, well carbonated and jazzy look.

A crystal, pils, malty aroma. Canned corn, dry wheat, various grains, and very herbacious hops. Slight vanilla/cream.

A very crisp and clean German Pils. Light, crispy, bready and grain-filled malt taste, just perfect balance wise. Bold, herbal, earthy hops, multiple grain flavors, canned cream corn and lots of wonderful, funky yeast stuff. Once again: classicly balanced and rather bold without too much hop.

The mouthfeel is authentically light, crisp and maybe slightly dry in the finish with a smooth ride at the very end.

American Pils are usually hop-extreme for the style, while that works for hop heads, lovers of the classic pils have to seek out the imported european classics for authentisity. It's nice to have a readily available, German, Organic pilsner.

Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

This one pours a clear creamsicle orange, with a small tight head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like grassy hops, slightly sweet honeyed malt, and grainy bread.

This is a really solid pils here. It's maybe a little bit too sweet- and I'd prefer a crisper hop bite. However, it's still pretty delicious, and hits a lot of right spots. The hops are grassy and fresh tasting, with a bready bite for malt, and a slight fruity yeast character, kinda reminds me of dried apricot.

This is pretty crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

Not the most perfect pils ever, but still pretty damn good.

Poured into a Harpoon Dark pils-style glass
L: Beer looks great. Dark golden yellow, bordering on orange in color, tons of carbonation tossing around the glass. Originally poured a huge fluffy head. Head retention is excellent. Beer is somewhat hazy
S: Smell is very faint. What I can smell is grass/hay, floral hops, and a touch of biscuit malt, and crackers.
T: Tastes different than most other pils I've had, though its certainly not bad. Hard to characterize though. Definately bready, biscuit like. Not sweet. Very faint bitterness on the finish. The malts taste different though, might sound weird but almost remind me of tomato or some spice found in a sauce. Really hard to pin down.
F: Good, really smooth, balanced. A little heavier than I prefer for the style, though.
O: Good pilsner, definately not my favorite but has unique characteristics I'm not accustomed to, which makes it memorable. Will revisit again certainly.

500 ml bottle served cool into a personalized glass mug. Purchased in Niagara Falls, New York.

Appearance - slightly cloudy rich golden color. A fine finger or head rests on top and stays a while. Some sparse lacing left behind.

Smell - clean and crisp with huge floral notes up front. Some grainy sweet notes in behind. A certain milky pasteurized atom mixed in.

Taste - clean and easy to drink, slightly herbal with fruity and flowery flavours. Light malt bill. Slightly doughy flavours too.

Mouthfeel- smooth and crisp, light body and mild carbonation.

Overall - Pinkus organic pils is a fine and easy to drink example of the style with plenty of floral flavours. Worth a try if not my favourite example.

Bottle poured into a standard pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves a little light lacing.

S: Fruity, yeasty, some spice, and bready malt.

T: Fruity and spicy, floral notes, yeasty, bready malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Drinks more like a kolsch. I wish it was lighter and crisper. What is there isn't bad, just not necessarily what I'd expect for the style.

This beer has good stuff: clean, family-owned and an innovator in organic ingredients.
While not clear like most Pils, it has a nice rich malt in the nose and initial taste makes me salivate for a second.
As I drained the bottle, the hops ended-up a bit dry for me.
OA: Despite those two relative flaws, this Ur Pils seems well put together and I would not be shy about having it again.
