Another one of the great beers express mailed over to me from Bavaria. Pours well, actually looks slightly cloudy straw color. Smells wonderful. Tastes like a Bavarian pils very clean with a pleasant afetertaste. One might say a little spicy. Smooth and very drikable, wish I had more.

umm...unremarkable pils. i enjoyed drinking it because it was beer, but i'm not about to buy a case of it. some foam above the light gold body. the hop character was commendable, with some nice bitterness and floral notes. i got what i expected: a golden German lager

I had this from a wooden cask at the brewery.

A: Very clear, brownish-yellow. Fluffy white head, some retention and lace.

S: Peppery hops (Saaz & Spalt?) with a bready undertone.

T: Lots of spicy hop flavour, a little bread & caramel. Clean, crisp bitterness.

M: Moderate body is fairly creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.

D: Very drinkable.

Probably the best Pils I've ever had!

BB 1-12-05. Nice head that's lasting and a opalizing light golden beer. Nose is clean and full malty and shows a slight hopnose. For a pils IMO litle too malty and could have some more hops but overal clean. As is taste that gives good maltyness, litle maltsweet and very nicely bittered. Yes this is very enjoyable and good carbonisation gives it a fine mouthfeel. One of the easiest srinkable pilseners I know and one I'll meet again if I'm near Bamberg.

Huge head, nicely creamy, lasting on a transparent pale golden color body. The smell is malty and sweet, slightly dry, but not annoyingly grainy. The taste is clean and crisp, malty and sweet with refreshing notes of citrus. Aftertaste gets hoppy and dry, in a flat way (on the whole tongue). Mouthfeel is round, smooth, very enjoyable, lightly bready. Well crafted. One of my favorite pilsners to date.

Sampled on tap from a wooden barrel at the brewery in Bamberg.

This pils poured a clear, gold color with creamy white foam that settled but clung and left lace. The smell was a clean, mild malty aroma. The taste was malty with hints of bread followed by a some floral hops and finally some bitter hops in the finish. Overall a rather mild flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and dry with medium-light body and modest carbonation. There was a mild lingering hoppy aftertaste. This was a good pils, but a bit light on flavor and body overall.

This beer is bright gold in color, the bright them carries through to the taste as well. It has a definite hop bitterness to it, and it is accompanied by a mild maltiness to it. It finishes with a nice hop / carbanation bite that hits your tongue and says pay attention to me.
