11.2oz bottle into pilsner glass.

Crystal clear straw hue with a one finger white pillowy head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Rings of lacing along the glass.

Crisp toasty hops along with some light and spicy hops aromas.

Biscuity grains and a little bit of bitterness from the hops. Light bodied with higher carbonation. The finish is clean, with a touch of lingering hops.

Not a bad German Pilsner. I would like to see the beer get shipped in a brown bottle so when it sits on the shelf it's a little more protected from the light.

Light yellow. Thin but firm head.
Spice and freshly baked bread aroma.
Quite grainy and bitter. Hops are present but not outstanding.
Begged to deceive.

A: A clear straw color with a thin line of soapy bubbles on top.

S: Sweet honey malts with a grassy hop and slightly waxy aroma.

T: Kind of a wax and grainy malt flavor with a bit of fruitiness a bitter aftertaste. Not much hop flavor, just bitterness. The beer isn't sweet, it finishes dry.

M: light bodied with high carbonation and finishes dry.

O: Was hoping for more, but for me this is just and average Pilsener.

i had this at a bar before attending a wine event. I felt I needed a beer before a night of wine. I was not familiar with this beer and overall not impressed. However, one thing that was interesting was the uniquely fruity aroma and flavor that was more reminiscent of a kolsch than a pilsner. I would try it again but not sure how many times after that.

Crisp, clean, well carbonated. Nice bite, not too bitter. My bottle shop always keeps them in the case box to avoid the light. Solid German Pilsner and great representative of the style.
