Happy to review this with a fairly fresh bottle. 12.2 ounces. Not sure I have seen this before.
Shimmering, crystal clear pale straw body. Bubbly two finger white head dissipates to a weak, wispy cap and minimal lacing.
Clean aroma of grainy, bready malts. Nice earthy, grassy, medicinal hops.
Grainy malts followed by some heavier, bready malts in the taste. Slighty grassy hops give way to a wonderful medicinal taste that comes through.
Lighter body with good carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry with a nice peppery finish.

This beer pours a pale yellow with a healthy white head. The smell is appropriate for a German brewed beer, with notes particular to beer from the region. I'm not as big a fan of the taste and mouthfeel as I'd like to be, but I'd try it again.

Great to have one fresh exemplar straight from the origin. Light golden color with a thick thin head with decent retention and leaving good laces.
Aroma with notes of grassy and spicy hops, bread and lager yeast.
Predominant flavor of grassy hops, malt sweetness, lager yeast and a faint lime drop. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long finish.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Superbly balanced but still grassy hop forward making it refreshing and crisp. Very assertive being even somewhat plain, but very well executed. German Pils demo. Given it is a fresh exemplar, I could feel its hops much more prominent.

On tap at Covenhoven in BK.

Fat goblet pour. It's their standard glass.

Pale, clear, straw body with a lingering, Lacy, shelve-y head.

Selmell is classic Euro malts & pepper, hops.

Taste toasty, moderately bitter, tight/dry body that ends in a moderate, carbonic spritz.

Simple, yet well made. Drank most if this before I realized & had to grab another. Good, quenching stuff.

Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus AG "Rothaus Pils Tannen Zäpfle"
,33l brown glass bottle, "Mindestens haltbar bis: 11.01.18 3069208" and sampled on 21.09.17

Look: Crystal clear golden body beneath a short head of white. Limited head retention and lacing.
Smell: Clean. Grainy and bready malt and lightly floral and grassy/herbal hops.
Taste: The flavor follows the aroma with a touch more herbal character, particularly in the finish. A stiff bitterness balances it and it finishes mainly dry.
Feel: Medium-light in body and delicately crisp.
Overall: I was quite pleased to enjoy a fresh bottle of this as that makes all the difference. It was fresh, bright, and more hoppy than the previous example I'd tasted. Easy drinking and quite enjoyable.

Pours crystal clear and pale gold. Low foam, but loads of visible carbonation.

Smell is perfect, clean and crisp, with some doughy, bready malt. Just so damn clean.

Taste is probably then cleanest and crispest I've ever had. Bready malt and just a perfect bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium and sprakly.

This is just an elite pilsner, maybe the best I've had. Ridiculously clean and crisp, just a treat.

Pours clear, gold in color with 3/4 inch head. Taste is grass, grain, and honey. Clean, crisp, sweet, with light body and high carbonation. Makes for a solid and enjoyable sessionable German pils. I will get this again.
