Not your usual pils. Less malty which I like. Not very yeasty or hoppy. A very different flavor. Not my cup of tea but it is worth try.

A buddy of mine stopped by the other day to lay a few of his odds & sods on me and this was among them. I am always willing to give a new Pils a whirl, even if it is a GER Pils.

From the bottle: "Seit (since) 1378".

I Pop!ped the cap on this .33L bottle & began a gentle pour into my awaiting Pilsner glass. Once a sufficient amount had been decanted, an in-glass swirl raised a brief finger of soapy, foamy, bone-white head with modest retention. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a grassy, slightly skunky Noble hops quality. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, kind of watery. The taste was a bit sweet with a breadiness from the malt to go along with the grass & hay flavors of the hops. Finish was semi-sweet, a bit sweeter than I would prefer from the style, but still a pleasant drink.

Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head.v Smell is of grains, grassy, a bit skunky, damn green bottle.Taste is grains, lemons, malts, a bit grassy, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

One of the best tasting Getman pilsners, balanced and refreshing, just a bit expensive in the USA.

Appearance - light straw colored beer with white head

Smell - skunk, grains

Taste - cereal, grains, cracker, biscuit, hint of lemon

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, higher level of carbonation, slight grain sweetness upfront, some bitterness on the back end

Overall - wished this didn't come in a green bottle, as this is prone to skunking, overall still a pilsner worth a try

Price Point - $ 1.99 /11.2 oz bottle

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a crystal clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is a mild hop scent with some grass or grain added. The taste is a rather big hop flavor with some citrus and salt added. A good Pils.

Very nice Pilsner beer. Tried it side by side with the Weihenstephaner Original, and it was a close call. Ultimately Weihenstephaner beat it out in my opinion, but not by much. To be honest, I think this beer is sometimes skunked due to the green bottle. But when tried fresh, this is right up there with the best pilsner's in the entire world.

Green bottle..

Straw gold, 1" head of foam, great lacing.

Grainy-corny nose with noticeable hop bitterness, typical aroma you get from a green bottle=light struck but not severely.

The hops are bitter, grassy. The malt is sweetish, grainy. The beer is more bitter than sweet. Should be an achieves that.

On the high end of light bodied, perfect carbonation.

The brewery makes some tasty brews and this is no exception. Reasonably priced too. I like.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness; with a very slight bit of skunk presence. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are quite clean with no obvious skunk notes in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good German pilsener style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.
