On tap at Grimm in Brooklyn.

Pours a semi clear yellow, with fine, soapy head.

Smell is bready and clean with floral hop notes and some citrus.

Taste is crisp and bready, with a fine, floral bitterness and some citrus notes. Fairly dry finish.

Mouthfeel is medium and a bit creamy, well carbonated.

Overall, a nice, balanced pilsner, less bitter and hoppy than the Americans tend to be.

Pours a foggy straw color with a finger of white head. Good retention. Aroma is pilsner malt, straw, and light herbal hops. Hop bite is a little strong for a pilsner. Flavor profile is nutty, pilsner malts, and herbal, floral, and spicy hops. Hops play a slightly stronger role in the flavor profile than most pilsners. There is a yeasty, semi-dryness to it. Mouth feel is fuzzy with an almost chalky texture. It has a medium-thick consistency. Overall, an intriguing pilsner between the more heavy hop usage and texture. Worth visiting.

Draft. Reviewed from notes.

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Nice looking beer if a touch cloudy. Nose is a clean, crisp hop bitterness. A little mellow. Beer opens lemon zest, peppercorn and cobwebs with a biting, brief hop bitterness. A touch waxy in the middle. Clean hop presence at the end and finish. Really enjoyable. Body is light with moderate carbonation. I thought I would like something more carbed in this style but a touch less bubbles really works for me here. Very drinkable.

Up there with the better pilsners I've had.

Golden color with a light off white head. This is what I expected a German Pilsner to be. Crisp light bitterness with a clean feel. German hops and malt are simple and make this an easy drinking light beer. No lingering aftertaste that one would expect from a bad pilsner.
