Poured from .550 l bottle.

Noticable chill haze (beer served around 55 deg. F). Mininal head passed quickly and left light lacework. Straw color with slightly soft carbonation.

Nose is hoppy, Munich malts notes gradually build as the beer warms. Flavor is moderately complex for the style. Bitter foretaste breaks into a slightly sweet, bready finish. Aftertase is dry with a slight bite.

A bit too subtle to be a truly outstanding and memorable example of the style, but enjoyable and great with lobster or fish.

Enjoyed at Stammtisch AOBF! This bier from a fine Brauerei/Pub in Bamberg poured a clear, rich golden color. Head was white, full and frothy, with great lacing. Nose was grassy and herbal hops; a bit mild but nice. Medium bodied, it was also actually relatively smooth, for a Pils. A touch of biscuity malt (just a touch) was present at the start. Grassy, floral hops take over, with a touch of spiciness thrown in. A very nice example. Zum Wohl!!

Sampled on tap at The Moan and Dove.

This pilsner poured a hazy, yellow gold color with white foam. The smell was malt, biscuit, and fruity hops. The taste was sweetish malt and biscuit with fruity, mildly floral hops. The mouthfeel was smooth and relatively clean. The body was medium with moderate carbonation. This was a great light and refreshing pilsner, perfect for a warm afternoon.

The beer is a hazy golden. Little white head. Nice noble hop aroma. Spicy and a little smoky. Taste has a definite German slant. Bitter and a bit smoky. Good malt base. A bit of complexity in this pilsner. The bit of smokiness really grows on you as you drink it. Makes you want to keep drinking and drinking.....Not an outstanding pilsener, but definitely worth a try for a slightly different twist on the German Style Pilsner.
