500 ml. bottle. Clear golden yello colour, with almost no head at all. Smell of grains and lemon. Oily palate, light body. Taste is salty, with lemon, grains, bitter aftertaste. Not complex at all, but it's better in the tongue than one can expect after the visual and smell part. Yes, you can drink some of these, but it's rather boring.

Comes in a long neck brown half liter bottle with a swing top. The label is brown and gold, and features a bearded king (Bacchus, probably) holding a big mug with cover that is overflowing with head. The label makes a point of the ecological purity of the beer and the fact that it hand-crafted in a family brewery dating back to 1788. Purity law, of course. Best before 10/6/04, I opened it on 4/11/04.

Poured a quite unremarkable clear (this is supposed to be unfiltered) pale gold under a one finger white head that fades quickly to film and collar. The nose conveys flowery hops, but there is a hint of metal here, too. The mouth is light and very prickly. There's a bit of graininess that frighteningly reminded me of macro lager just for a second at the beginning, then the sweet barley and flowery hops kicked in to save the day. The finish is almost raspberry sweet, followed appreciably later by the hoppy bite one expects of German pilsners. The final impression, a good 15-20 seconds after the liquid goes down the throat, is very good. Everything before that is just slightly higher than average..

This is my kind of beer! I brought this back from Germany, picked it up at an organic trade show, this is an organic pilsner.

Pours a beautiful golden, lovely head..it helps when you pour a 0.5l into a 0,5l glass, creates a lovely head. Nice lace left in the glass.

The smell is that of a light grain, the taste is that of a very fine pilsner, not quite as much carbonation as I like, but very tasty.

Recommended! Would go well with pizza. This is a brewery whose beers I plan on picking up by the four pack when I go back again.

This organic Pils pours a light yellow, golden color....a clear, pale straw hue. Minimal head...basically just a thin collar of white bubbles around the edge. Lacks lacing for the most part as well. Aroma is a bit of light, crackery malt, yet there seems to also be a metallic aspect here too. Body borders on medium, yet it has a pronounced rough, prickly feel on the tongue. Flavor is pretty clean and crisp, with a bit more light, crackery malt. Finish consists of some grassy hoppiness, and it has a dryness throughout. Thnx to Pat (of PatandDavid) for bringing this back from a recent trip to Deutschland. Prosit!
