2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
At Bayern: Bright, but pale yellow with a small white head. Nice sheets of lacing. Faint yeast and malt in the nose. Crisp and wheaty with a light floral element. A little earthy in the tail before a lingering floral ending.

Decently smooth, not very distinctive but quite drinkable. A thumbs up from me.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Poured clear, barely golden or yellow with a white head head that dissipated immediately. Cracker malts on the nose. A little hoppy and citrusy, but mostly a dull malt character that dominated. Wasn’t a fan of this pilsener at all. More like a pale lager to me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden color with a few white bubbles atop. Sweet grain and malt aromas with hints of herbal hops and a bit of earth in the background. Grainy and fruity flavors that don’t remind me of a crisp, sharp pilsner. Really jones’n for a good pilsner.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours golden, small head, lively carbonation. Malt and lemon aroma. Grassy, hints of banana, and a mild spice is present in the flavor. Crisp light finish with some hop bitterness. It’s easy to drink, but nothing to brag about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Citric grassy nose, soft water predictions with lemon cream and delish pale malts. Slightly hazy yet still transparent golden with a leggy short head. Taste is dry and surprisingly bitter, with light herbs and spice. Hay, light grain. Light-medium body with a slightly chalky after. Has a lot in common with ... not Bayern, but those soft, bitter North German Pilsners - has some Veltins, some Flens, some Köstritzer, and yes, a little Jever. Good show.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
9/26/08 On draught at Collins Pub, Seatle, Wa. Aroma is slightly caramel sweetness with almost no hop background. Appearance is clear yellow with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is sweet with lots of caramel sweetness up front, very low bittering, and slight floral sourness. Mouthfeel is very low bodied, slightly creamy, with a medium carb feel. Overall, this is good for people that like sweet, thin (on complexity) pilsners, but needs a bit more meat to be great.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I didn’t really care for this Bayern product. It gave off a metallic taste...almost similar to a coors product. I tried this one with pretzels and even those didn’t help.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a cloudy hazed yellow/off-gold body with a thin white head. Grainy, grassy, bready nose with a thin mildly carbonic, approachable body. Easy to drink, but not so memorable.
