Lammsbrau Organic Pilsner

Neumarkter Brewery, Bavaria Germany
Certified Organic Hops (Nobels) and Barley, Deep well Mineral Water 4.8%abv

Pours a hazy gold color with a medium-sized snow white head along with loads of sticky, clinging lacing.
The aroma has that typical Nobels hops, light citric, cut hay, herbal nose to it. Whiffs of basil and parsley come to mind.
The malt body has a very clean and well-rounded mouth-feel. A light malty sweetness balances nicely with the subdued metallic and lightly citrusy hop bite. There’s just a hint of a ginny alcohol fuminess.
This is a very important brew not only because it’s organic, but because it rivals the very best of the style while maintaining its purity. Nice Brew! Bummer it comes in a green bottle. Who doesn't know green bottles are inferior to brown bottles in filtering out harmful sunlight and florescent lighting?
