2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hardly any aroma, light honeyish, grassy hop aromatics. Pale golden, fine carbonation, white lacing head. Lightbodied, lowlevel malt, far less hops than in their premium pils. Monotonous and boring.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp clear golden pour of light liquid with a nice fluffed white head. Nose is somewhat skunky with clean malt and faint hop notes. Minimal citrus with mostly malt presence. Flavor is crisp malt, not nearly as skunked, with mild citrus notes and a clean finish. Really enjoyable and not a bad pilsner.

33cL bottle. Not the best pilsner, but definitely drinkable, crisp. "Basic" taste, not very complex, but if this is all you’re looking for, you’ll be pleased.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
International Green Week, Berlin 2012: our second day and Hall 20 is full of goodies, products from Niederschen, Bremen, Baden-Wurttemberg, Thuringen, Hessen, Rheinland-Pfalz all competing with each other. I’m drawn to a bar selling this beer: can’t remember why though!
0.3 Litre draft glass of a light golden Pilsner, usual clean and bright looks; regular thin snowy white head that didn’t stay too long.
Normal un-smelling Pilsner; gets my standard score of 3 for that.
Dry and obviously refreshing (like all Pilsners?) this had a hop bitterness and a slight metallic twang initially, which I’m pleased to say disappeared although I thought the body harsh rather than crisp.
Difficult to quantify the whole tasting: the beer grew on me, but has a flaw in its make-up: the brewing process or the main ingredient (water) doesn’t sit right somehow.

Pale yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of hay, butter and bread. A flavor of meat, cooked and vegetables.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Das Bier ist von Anfang bis Ende sehr herb, ein biteres Aroma ist aber noch höchstens leicht im langen Abgang auszumachen. Mehr zeigt sich dort allerdings ein süßer werdendes Aroma, das den bitteren Teil einfach überstimmt. Auf malzige Aromen verzichtet das Bier weitestgehend, sie sind höchstens hintergründig nach längerem Suchen erkennbar. Kein Bier, das sich irgendwie besonders hervortut, gut trinken kann man es allemal.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 I really liked this the first time I had it, but subsequent encounters have left me wondering why.
Aroma is very metallic with some pale malt and a hint of noble hops.
Taste is also very metallic up front, with leafy hop bitterness in the swallow, and peppery noble hops in the finish. Malts are barely detectable. I find that brewing with hard water seems to put a harsh edge on the hop character of the finished beer, and I definitely get that here. This may help Bischoff stand up against rich saucy foods better than other pilseners, but for me, makes it less enjoyable alone.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear one, quite pale golden, and topped by a small, off-white head. A bit boring on the nose, but there’s a quite pleasant grassy, piney hoppyness and pale malts. A bit sweetish in the flavor, still quite dy. Medium body. Nicely carbonated. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with pale malts as a backdrop. A quenching, straightforward pilsner that tastes good too. 110129
