This is the August beer in the Bierkalender,1000 liters brewed once a year, and maybe never again.

It uses all NZ hops: Moteka, Nelson Sauvin (probably why it's called Admiral Nelson?), and Riwaka.

Appearance: Cloudy, which tells you it's bottle conditioned. It's bright yellow with orange tints.

Aroma: Lots of lemon, some marakuja, Pils malts a very little.

Flavor: WOW... up front quite bitter... no Noble hops here! Very bitter, but good, like a warm blanket.
In the middle, some Pils malt but some lemon flavors and more bitterness. In the back, that's where the Pils makes itself noticeable. Sweet Pils malts in the aftertaste, strong but not overpowering. You get even more lemon flavors, some strawberry, but more tartness mixed in. WOW.

ONE problem: It's thin. Really, I'd expect a munchy, thick Pils here from Andreas. But it comes across the tongue too quickly due to it's thinness. Jack knows my penchant for thicker mouthfeel, but the thinness was confirmed by 3 other tasters with me, and all 4 said it made it less of a German Pils style. Otherwise, the taste is lovely and absolutely a great Pils flavor-wise. I mean, I had 4 Germans try it with me and all said they wished this is the way all Pils tasted like. However, this mouthfeel thing detracted from making it perfect.
