0,33 liter Bügelflasche mindestens haltbar bis: 04.12.11. This appears to be a cross between a Bohemian pils, a Bavarian pils, and a zwickel.

It pours a very nice color, a deep gold with a huge white head that forms a nice doe and sticks for a long time before receding. It leaves some very nice lacing.

The smell is very good. It is orange-juicy with some lemon rind, herbal with a hint of medicinal qualities, with a nice bready malt presence. It really smells like a combo of Bavarain and Bohemian.

The flavor is very nice. It has the hop flavors of a Bavarian brew with a hint of Bohemian flair perhaps, but mainly it is orange and citrusy with some grassiness. There is a bitterness that reminds me of a north-German pils. This finishes with the malty, slightly buttery character of a Czech pils.

This is a world-class pilsener. It is interesting how it has seemed to have fallen through the cracks.
