3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first six I tried tasted very much like vanilla. I bought a bottle today and it tasted much more mellow, with a mild vanilla flavor hidden in the finish, but a sharp hops flavor hides it pretty well. Very tasty, but is a very unattractive beer to look at out of the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Skunky aroma (or at least what beer drinkers refer to as skunky as an actual skunk smells way worse than this, enough so that I wouldn’t put it to my mouth) with a slight hint of hops. Golden colored. Medium head, malty flavor. Nice light finish. A decent Pilsner but pales in comparison to Aass Bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light golden color with a nice white head. The aroma of noble hops is a faint and somewhat muted. Moderate carbonation. Malt flavors seemed a bit stale and worty. Decent lace. Just not very crisp.

Not too bad, i heard it was really good, so in that respect it was dissapointing. Very drinkable however.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pale in color, almost champagne like. White and cottony head, tons of tiny bubbles; The nose permeated the room when I opened it- Very potent and skunky and inviting- YUM. Milder then the nose would let on. Dryness is held in check. Gets a tiny bit tart at the 2/3 mark?

it looked nice but my bottle was totally skunked. There is one other place in town I think I can get this so will have to re-rate later.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold in color, large frothy white head, nice lace, nose is mild malt. Start is malt, the middle thin, the carbonation light, the hops light, slightly dry. As I’m biased against pilsners and some lagers, I try and find the good points rather than the weaknesses. Good point, I like it better than water, beyond that a typical weak in general pils!

This is a classical pilsener, with a nice aroma and a sweet, sweet taste...
