3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bubbly crystal clear pale golden colour with a nice head. Smell is herbs, slight pine, and slight sulphur/minerals. The flavor is very solid for a pils, this is a newly-imported beer and has flavors of mineral, grass, herbs, and bread. It is nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on tap) Bright golden color, persistent white head, clear and shiny. Looks quite appealing - even though it is so pale one could think it would be on the thin side (which is not the case). The aroma is dominated by the hops, mainly of the grassy kind. Yummy! Some white bread is there as well, but very much in the background. The aroma is not very intense, but absolutely appropriate for a Pilsener. After a while the hop aroma builds up on the palate and stays there after the last drop is swallowed. This is a must for a fine pilsener, in my opinion. This one is definitely spot-on. The bitterness is less stronger than I would expect from a Pilsener - but then again this is a South German example, so that’s ok. Medium carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, pleasant to drink. I’d love to have it again.

Draught @ BBF13. Pours pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and a paperlike finish. Nice and refreshing, certainly above the standard for the type in Germany.
