by biboergosum from Canada (AB)

500ml bottle, at a local university area pub that seems to be getting better and better with their beer fridge offerings.

This beer pours a hazy pale golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy off-white head, which leaves a few sparse specks of island group lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of sharply crispy bready pale malts, a prominent black pepper aerosol essence, a bit of tame apple skins, and softly earthy and grassy noble hops. The taste is much more of the same - pale crackery, bready grainy malt, a bit of spicy lemon pepper, and subtle earthy, leafy and mildly grassy hops.

The carbonation is middling, with a softly edgy astringency at times, the body medium-light in weight, and so-so smooth. It finishes somewhat off-dry, the fairly crisp graininess sticking it out, complemented by the residual noble hops.

A pleasantly drinkable pilsener, made true to spec, and well rounded between the malt and hop components. Sturdy like German ox, buffalo, yak, or whatever they've got over there.

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.

Taste is refreshing and crisp,Nice cracker hop bite evened out with some delicious malt. Feels well carbonated finishes semi dry with a lingering cracker/hop taste.

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.
