Bottle Date Stamp: 90179N1

A - Medium gold color with slight haziness and a thin layer of creamy white head resting on top, nice vibrant carbonation.

S - Honey malt with some yeastiness and juniper.

T - Biscuity honey malt base at the start and midway through an earthy bitterness slowly builds for a nicely balanced finish with a lingering earthy, pine bitterness over top of biscuity sweet malt.

M - Medium body with gentle, prickly carbonation.

O - A little on the malty side but nice finishing bitterness to scrub some of the sweetness away.

Different from most Pilsners. Great flavor, but a little thin in the body. Bread comes through, and citrus on the finish. Refreshing for a warm day and more complexity in the flavor than a lot of Pilsners.

Citrus, hops, malt, bread - a little bit of everything. Light. Mediocre - not bad, yet nothing's remarkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium orange color with a moderate white head that fades quickly. A large amount of sediment in the glass. SRM of 7. (3.75)

Aroma: Moderate aromas of pale malts, bread malts, some authentic German bread malts with yeast.

Flavor: Moderate falvors of pale malts, bread malts, bread yeast, some rubbery flavors. Malty bread and yeast to finish.

Feel: Medium to larger bodied for the style. Moderate carbonation. Finish is bready, relatively smooth, and leans malty.

Compared to Paulaner 6/8/22: Pours a darker color. Stronger aromas. More bread malt and bread spice.

Overall: A decent representation of the style here. Slightly larger at 5.2% ABV. Shows that with the full and bready flavor and mouthfeel. Not overly complex. I'm not sure what the organic component really adds to this beer if not to the flavor. The full, bready body reminded me of the Czech Pils. I actually think this was originally from Czechoslovakia. Maybe we should update the style? Certainly, a decent Pils, but there's better ones out there. (Rating: 3.70)
*Would compare to a Czech style next*

11.2oz bottle

Golden-orange and filled with chunks and films. Smells like beer. Crisp and mostly clean, some cookie dough sweetness and plenty of noble hop bitterness, with an earthy and sorta dirty "barnyard" grain finish... pretty good

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance:
Generous, fine head that lasts, Yellow-gold with floaties to make it hazy.

Aroma:
Clean, crisp crackery malt and spicy/floral noble hops. Very German.

Flavor:
See Aroma :D ... on the sweet side of the style. Finishes with a nice lingering pleasant malt and hop flavor/bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Light-Medium, feels a bit sugary but not cloying... Nominal CO2, all good.

Overall
I will grab one of these each time I go to Natural Grocers. This is a worthy Pils--organic or not.

Kind of feels like a Hefeweizen, a little on the taste too. Sort of looks like a Kellerbier. Truly unique Pilsner. Different from all the others. Very good too!

Pours a pillowy foamy almost 1 finger head with great retention, bits of lacing, very clear light golden color

Nose brings pilsner malt, grainy-sweet, a bit of corn, straw, a touch of bready dough, light floral hops

Taste brings more pilsner malts, grainy-sweet, little cracker and bread dough again, some straw, a bit of corn notes but not a lot, soft juicy malty lager, hops kick right in with herbal floral noble hops, then getting spicy late, with lighter then increasing to a med bitterness, crisp bitter finish

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bod, soft lager, med-higher small bubble frothy prickly carb

Overall not bad, not as good and deep as some of the great German pilsners, but done well enough, a nice hop character especially

From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head that slowly reduces. In the nose, it is a bit lemony and bready. In the mouth, it is lightly pilsner bitter, with notes of malt. Nice beer.

Pretty good beer overall. Price point wasn't bad either.

Lacing on the glass was very nice and is a nice tasting beer. Medium body, slightly sweet with a very light touch of bitterness and a hint of sourness. Reminded me of fresh beer I had in Germany. I would probably buy it again but there are other beers out there that are much better.

I like the classy looking bottle label artwork but there is no date on the bottle. The pour is canary yellow with a moderate amount of carbonation flowing upstream in the pilsner glass. The taste is really smooth for an organic pilsner, it's not watered down tasting like some other organic beers that I've had previously. In addition to, the taste is herbal, light amount of hops & lemon, some cooked broccoli, & white bread. This is one of the best German Pilsners that I've had, it goes down smooth & clean. Cheers! B

Pours a clear pale straw, lots of active carbonation, and a monumental head with great body and some very light lacing.
Smell comes out strongly immediately upon pouring. Lots of light bready/crackery notes, some light notes of lemon and a bright grassiness.
Taste is a soft crackery start with some front end hop bitterness. Smooths out into a light, clean, bready flavor with a nice touch of bitterness on the tail end. Very clean and very refreshing.
Mouthfeel is wonderful, very soft and very crisp. This is a drinking persons drink for sure.
Overall this is a great pilsner. Very flavorful, very crisp. A perfect summer day drink.
