Serving: On tap at Bier Stube in Moline, IL
Served: 1 Jan 2014

Appearance: Pours a straw colored yellow with a minimal half-finger head. If this was in a bigger glass, I'm sure the head would be more substantial. The head is creamy white and leaves some lacing. Looks pretty good.

Smell: Classic 'beer' smell with a touch of biscuit and herbal bitterness.

Taste: Grassy and grainy, with a baguette bitterness. Minimal hop flavor, but mild hop bitterness. Pretty solid for a traditional German pils.

Feel: Lively and effervescent.

Overall: A good example of the style that won't blow you away but shouldn't leave you underwhelmed either.

Pours to a beautiful white head that lasts and laces well. Color is light yellow-gold. Aroma is fresh pilsner malt and grassy, floral hops. Flavor is a nice balance of light, sweet malts and soft hop flavor and bitterness. Very easy to quaff. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side but refreshing. Outstanding beer I will buy again.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a small lasting white head. Aroma and taste is of sweet grains, light citrus, hay with some light malt and barley, and mild bitterness. A medium body, crisp with moderate carbonation. Overall a good drinking and refreshing brew.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Light yellow, tons of carbonation and a lingering 1.5-finger head
S: Complex with a plethora of grains, cereal and grass
T: The flavors match the aromas but aren't quite as complex
M: Light-bodied, crisp with pleasant carbonation
O: Crisp and clean, it's pushing 80 and humid outside and this really hits the spot
