3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle at Paulaner brewpub Munich
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with a medium fluffy head.
Aroma : Nice citrusy hops, light piny. Some malt.
Taste : Nice malt, a bit citrusy and piny. Finish herbal and citrusy.
Overall : Very interesting pilsner. Unusually hoppy and citrusy for germany (from my limited experience). I liked it a lot. Maybe because I didn’t had anything hoppy for a while at the time...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
La solita pils tedesca? Forse un pochino di più: Augustiner Pils smorza i toni un po’ barocchi di certe brodaglie saponate (Bitburger, sto pensando a te) e ha un aroma fresco e sottile di luppolo che la nobilita. Molto gradevole e anche abbastanza amara.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Finger of pure white pillowy head; crystal clear light yellow gold. Fresh hallerau-like hops; earthy and nice. Very fresh hoppy flavors, bit savory, but really refreshingly dry. Clean, light body.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased in Berlin.
Pours a beautiful crystaline pale gold with a nice white head. Citric nose, some sourness, dry grassy fields. Lots of life in the flavor: a strong hops with some pine, thick sweet fruit (apple, pear, papaya?) in the flavorful malts, a good assertive hop finish with the bitterness accenting the lively carbonation and visa versa.
Absolutely fresh, absolutely delicious. Strong and forward in character, almost like some the targeted-to-West-coast-beer-geek American craft pilsner. A very nice beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle straight from Munich via my mother-in-law in the new funky sam adams glass. Golden with lasting head and lace. Noble hop and grain aroma. Grainy grassy clean flavor with nice hoppy undercurrent ad finish. Nothing spectacular, but well-mathced with my Peking Meat Sauce with Noodles.
