De Labirratorium. En copa hefe de Bavaria. Estudiando. Muy buena, con un lúpulo herbal muy fresco que le da vidilla y una buena dosis de amargor. Nada que ver con la típica pils insulsa.

From the bottle, it pours a nice yellow with a vibrant white head that slowly dissipates. Lacing in the glass as you drink it. In the nose, it is bready with a bit of hops. In the mouth, it is malty with some pilsner bitterness. Nice!

Crystal clear darker straw/lighter gold color. Moderate head but it maintains a small portion of bubbles on the surface. Excellent 3D ring lace throughout the tasting.

The smell features the nice blend of grainy barley corn and lightly toasted pale malt. It takes me back to the beer gardens of Germany.

The grain is strongest in the taste with a mild sweetness. The hop, though, is powerful enough to provide a bitter and weedy bite to the finish. Simply put, one of the better German Pilsners.

Had on tap. By the smell, I didn't think this would be much, just very pedestrian with honey, malts and wheat. The taste however brings in a nice orange with the wheat, toffee with the malt, and a crisp floral finish. Very nice, especially at the end of a hot day

Clean and refreshing, with a crisp, hoppy finish. A fine example of a German Pilsner. Very balanced, with a slight, refined malt flavor, that doesn't overpower the crisp mouthfeel. Exactly what I want in a Pils.

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a huge, white head.

Smells of a great mix between hay, crackers, garden herbs and lemon zest among a note of wheat.

Drinks extremely refreshing with a light body and a very effervescent carbonation.

Tastes incredibly more hoppy than the nose indicated, this is straight forward a hop bomb. Has a crackery, soft, dough leaden middle part with a little straw cutting through. After that its again all about the hops, herbal, dry with a prominent lime punch, making this standing out in the best fashion. Finishes with a light toffee sweetness, providing just enough balance for the hop onslaught to unfold in a balanced, yet utmost dry and herbal fashion.

This may be the truest, greatest pils I have ever experienced. If more beers of this style were just as uncompromising as this one, Pils would definitely be a bigger thing in the beer geek scene. This is just perfection with a never experienced hoppiness, nowhere near an ipa, not coppery old world sweet either. This is simply flawless.

This beer is delicious. Very crisp Pils. Has just the right amount of hop bitterness to give it a slightly sharper quality than the Commerzienrat Privat. Very drinkable. Could definitely crush more than a few of these.

Clear, straw-colored with a big, lively, pure white head that dissipates slowly leaving plenty of lacing. Looks highly carbonated. Heavy herbal notes, hay, slightly floral, with a nice balance of malt and noble hops aromas. A touch earthy (almost a little Rauch like) at the end. Taste is very bread-like - but not quite fully cooked - lending to more sweetness than many typical German Pils (especially here in the northeast). Moderate spicy hop bitterness in the middle and end, balancing the beer out nicely. Good carbonation and body. Rated according to style, and overall, on point with what I prefer in the style, i.e., not overly bitter,

Awesome. Malty with a subtle but delicious hop presence. Malt (decoction?) shines. Good carb, just tasty. Mouthfeel could have been a little lighter... That's the only thing "wrong" with this otherwise perfect Pils

Transparent yellow. Pils.
Spicy and peppery hops up front with a touch of something a little brighter. Perhaps a touch of citrus, or citrus rind. Crackery malt beneath.
Spicy hop taste with the crackery malt again. Leaves a nice bitter coating on the tongue and finishes dry. Perhaps the malt presence could be a bit stronger here.
Great crisp and bitter finish that coats the tongue.

The colour is pale cool yellow, the liquid is very clear. The two finger head is white and compact; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is malty with some honey sweetness. Hints of hay and floral hops. Some yeasty-earthy notes in the background.

The taste is sweeter than expected. Hints of honey and flowers. Growing clean bitter notes and some lime. Medium body. The aftertaste got growing floral hops, lemon juice and a tough of wheat dough. The finish is clean and bitter.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles smooth and long lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A little bit too sweet at times. Otherwise, this is a no-nonsense classic German Pils. They have been doing this kind of beers for 150 years, and they really know the craft by now.

Blonde color, quite intense, just slightly veiled. Almost no bubbles. One and a half finger of white head, quite compact.
The smell is good, fresh, a good hop. A lot of hay, herbal. Fresh and inviting.
The taste is on the same way, with fresh notes. Hay and dry flowers.
Nothing exceptional, but a good pils, drinkable, fresh, with a good hopping.
Rather dry aftertaste, not too much.
