Review on tap at brewery 8/2019:
Clear, lightly colored beer that is like a faded yellow gold. Head lasts a short period and provides a bit of lacing.

Nose is wonderfully bready with the Pilsner malt. It’s not quite like smelling fresh bread but it’s close on this pour. Noble hops are noted, accenting the malt without interfering.

Bread aspect isn’t as big in the taste, and the malts bring a moderately sweet opening note. The Pilsner malt shows itself just about the time the noble hop grass starts to show. A hint of minerals then an earthy to grassy bitterness to close out.

Feel is light and inviting, making this a dry enjoyable beer. Having it at the source likely helps, but I had to up my initial rating over a notch. I could maybe use just a tad more dryness, but there’s a lot more to like than to complain about.

Braumeister Pils pours a very nice cloudy yellow with a nice white head. The nose has hints of toasted grains and nice amount of hops. There is some sweetness, typical for the style. A very nice pils with a good carbonation and a dry crisp finish. Perfect of the style.

Pours a pale yellow with a solid head that lingers well. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of pilsner hops - this version more floral. Taste is consistent with the smell - floral but with a bit of piney background. Compared to the Prima option at Victory this has a little less "pop" but still good.
