3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ the brauhaus in Munich. Pale yellow gold, foamy towering head displaying excellent retention. Aroma has nice grassy herbal hop character but unfortunately is marred by sulfurous eggy notes. I’m guessing dirty lines. palate is crisp straw malts with assertive herbaceous green hop character and drying bitterness. Tasty.

330 ml bottle. BBE 03/2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light grains and some citrus. Flavour of grainy malts, strong grassy hops, citrus, herbs, bubblegum and honey. Medium bodied, quite high carbonation and a surprisingly bitter, dry and grassy finish. After a while some sweet honey notes and herbs in the finish as well. Really a tasty pils.

Huge very white lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Malty grassy aroma with floral notes. Dry-sweetish fruity golden grassy taste with malty straw notes. Clean, fresh palate.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A fantastic pilsnener from Munich:
The looks are pretty ordinary, golden/yellow with a bit weak head,
but as soon as you stick your nose into the glas you will be overwhelmed by a motherload of flowery aromahops. The hops are there in the taste too, nicely balanced with a medium body.
I have to get more of theese!
