2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
MGC under a medium size medium lasting white head. Mild herbal hops aroma. Light slightly watery body. Very low sweetness, mild woody bitter hoppy flavours. Subtle and should not be rated after a dozen or so Belgian strong ales as we have just attempted to do.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale yellow, almost green color with a large, pillowy, cloudy and lacy head. Hoppy citrus aroma. Hoppy pils flavor. Quite carbonated, crisp, slicky and light-bodied palate. A nice and refreshing pils. Had this at a quite cold terrace, so should probably re-rate when warm enough.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Cittie of Yorke (Sam Smith pub), Holborn, London. Similar to the lager, which I tried immediatly beforehand - though less fruity, and with more of a white spirit quality. Not outstanding: plain, but quite crisp. Some cider and malt (perversely). No aroma, no head, no lacing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear straw, very minimal head. Wet malty aroma, a bit of cardboard and some sour wine. . . Light apple flavour that turns sour on the back of the tongue. No real assemblence of hops, but not a horrible flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On the one hand a lot of serious beer drinkers have a hard time taking pilsener seriously; on the other, they definitely should because there are examples that are very interesting and rewarding. Unfortunately...not this one. Hops definitely there, driving a wood cask-like, musty aroma, with a grassy finish. Rich, yellow color, attractive in its own way, and a lack of bitterness made it decent in the end, but still no cigar. (on tap, Ludwig's Garten, Philadelphia)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Head retention could be better.
Flowery hoppy / bohemian nose.
Fullbodied with relatively low carbonation.
Tasty and clean.

a potent pils, points for potentcy...biting taste in the back of the throat leaves me thirsty for more, that's a good sign

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Found this in the back of my parents fridge while visting. One of my brothers(who moved out 4 years ago) must have left it.
I was suprised it still had a decent pssst upon opening. Poured a decent head which eventually disapated. Top part of bottle was ok but bottom was too cloudy to venture into. I poured rest. I'll have to find a fresh one someday.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Straw gold with a moderate thin head and reasonable condition. Delicate hop and malt blend of aromas, becoming quite hoppy in the mouth and bitter towards the finish
