One of the better German pils I've had. Interesting bready, almost seaweed nose, straw taste but cleaner and crisper than most others. I'm not an expert on German beers, but this feels right. Clean finish. Grabbed a bottle on a whim at St. Gambrinus in Brookyn (along with some Trappist favorites) and glad I did. Worth seeking out.

I've been on a binge lately of good craft or small batch Pils and tried several different types. I'm new here so those reviews will come. This was recommended to me by a family member and locally it retails about $18 for a 6-pack, so on par with Innis & Gunn pricing. But, what you get is an amazing beer that is easy to drink and went surprisingly well with a cool crisp autumn evening. It has a great light golden color and a slight bite when you first taste it, but that is followed by smooth clean flavors of grass, herbs, and grain. You truly feel like you are drinking a well made pils made with the best ingredients. The gold foil is a nice touch and I love the labeling. This will continue to have a permanent home in my fridge by the case going forward.

From a 36cl bottle.

Pale yellow/gold. Clear with only the occasional bubble rising to the one finger soapy head. Disappears quickly but leaves layers of lacing.

Spicy, hoppy nose. Not strong but noticeable after a swirl.

Strong herbal flavour. Bitter and hoppy more than clean and fresh. Love the spicy notes.

Rich mouthfeel. Slightly oily. Long, bitter finish. Drying.

No flat flavours. No off notes. A grown-up, top-notch Pilsner. Complex and luxurious.

I poured this pils from the refrigerator to a stange glass. Pinky sized head with much carbonation. A beautiful golden color with sparse lacings down the glass. It tasted mostly bitter at the back, but light on the front. Crisp and refreshing.
