look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Crystal clear pale yellow gold body, with a moderate white cloudtop head, massive steeams of minute slow-rising bubbles. Thick, fine-beaded lacing coats the glass walls in an unbroken sheet.

Aroma: Bread dough-like aroma, a little less of the cracker malt I associate with this style. Leafy, grassy, and earthy hops all present, but in a restrained fashion.

Taste: Begins with cracker malt and white bread notes, Soon after, a flourish of hops presents, at first grassy, then with mild grapefruit rind, and some earthy character. Late in the taste, there is a moment of light caramel sweetness. The finish is just a bit dry, with a slight herbal and medicinal note.

Mouth feel: Rich and full, quite pleasant, soft to the touch, with a hint of stinging carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A solid example of the style, not a beer I would associate with the winter season, but good, nonetheless.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Beer number eleven (December 11th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar.

Day 11 advent. 500 ml can poured into a pint glass. Clear pale yellow gold, active carbonation, fluffy sudsy head of three + fingers. The aroma is floral metallic notes. The taste follows suit and mixes in some breadieness. The huge carbo release at the pour does not leave much for the drink. Medium light feel. After the metallic notes fade, not bad.

Straw body with fluffy creamy head, smells is like typical commercial pilsner malt, but taste is super malty and refreshing with a thin and dry, creamy bitter mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid pilsner.

Can from the Costco Advent box. Poured into an IPA glass out of laziness. Crystal-clear golden color with a large and dense white head. Great retention in the glass. Aromas of floral hops, crackery malt, and faint sulfur. Crisp tasting at first with faintly bitter floral notes. There was a grainy malt presence but it was washed away by a somewhat soapy and metallic finish. Decent feel but the finish blew it for me.

Pours a clear straw with a finger of white head. Head retention is fair with good lacing left behind. Aroma is bread and pilsner malts, with skunk, dank, and resin hops. Flavor profile is skunk, dank, and resin hops throughout, giving it a slightly bitter bite. Bread and pilsner malts help form a small base. Mouth feel is crisp, and slightly filling with a medium thickness. Overall, a skunky, dank pilsner. It does have a bit of a bitter bite, which keeps it from being a pleasurable sipper.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Served in a pint glass from the can.

Appearance: Clear to hazy gold with medium bubbles. Head is quite thick coming off a white color settles slowly with sticky lacing.

Smell: like spoiled lemons, not the best of scents out there. You do smell hops of course but it's one of those walked into a brewery smells.

Taste: Sour and bitter brew. Tastes like lemon and flowers. Light thought not over powering taste which resembles a euro pale lager.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation. Not really sticky but thirst quenching.

Overal: Descent brew, but definitely not as good as the one I had last night. Came in an advent calendar sampler which I still haven't finished. Salud!

Got this out of the Beer Advent calendar for today. Poured up beautifully, a nice clear golden hue with a good, sturdy head. A very bright and fruity aroma, hints of fizziness. First drink was crisp and bold, clear malt taste. However, as I've noticed with beers from this brewery, there's a distinct bitter aftertaste that is metallic in nature. Undermines an otherwise enjoyable beer.

I enjoy a well done Pilsner. While it isn't exactly in season, I was still excited to see it when I opened the Day 11 door of the Brewer's Advent Calendar.

Bierkutscher Edel Pils poured with a rich, full, creamy head that was long lasting and left extensive lacing on my glass. It is incredibly clear; I think the term often used is "brilliant." It is also very light in color, possibly as low as a 2 or 1 on the SRM scale.

This pilsner is a delight, in flavor, smell, and look. It is a light grainy smell with some sweet undertones. There are clear hop aromas, though I'm not really familiar with them. Floral smells are typical of the style, but I don't quite detect that. Flavorwise, it is incredibly smooth and crisp. There is a malt forwardness with a nice, bitter hop afterbite. The lingering flavor is somewhat sweet and very, very lightly bready. The water used in this pilsner must be top quality, and some mineralness definitely comes through.

Overall, this is an excellent pilsner. I tend to prefer Czech Pilsners to German ones, but Bierkutscher Edel Pils will certainly have me rethinking that.

From the can, it pours a golden color with a nice head. In the nose, you get some hops, but it is mostly in the mouth that you get the hop bitterness associated with a Pils. Not bad!

2017 Update: Ditto!
