2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12 oz. narrow neck green bottle, an unmarked best before date on the back label, sampled in a pilsener glass.
Poured a clear pale, pale yellowish golden with a two finger high white head, good retention, slowly dissipates into a thin lacing.
A nose of sulfur lager yeastiness, lightly grainy and floral.
A firm light body, dry and crisp, thin sweet pilsener malts, slightly grainy, once again, sulfur yeastiness, a subtle herbal hoppiness that becomes nicely spicy at the end, a dry, crisp, clean finish. Not bad, not great, a refreshing summertime pilsener, easy to drink.
I like this pilsener, but in my area, nearly $9 for a six, so I won’t be a regular buyer of this. I can get the Lakefront, Millstream or Schlafly pilseners for less than that, plus I also prefer them to this German pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle) Slightly hazy, yellow colour with foamy white medium-sized head. Strong grassy hoppy, not unpleasant aroma, which reminded me immediately of Lederer Pils from Nuremberg I had a couple of years ago or some other Pilseners in Germany, especially those filled in green glass bottles (e.g. Brinkhoffs, Wicküler). Also some shy malty sweetness from behind. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a crispy mouthfeel. Grassy, slightly herbal hoppy taste on a soft malty basy; dry and bitter hop-accented finish. I somewhat like it, but I doubt everybody does.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color with a thin white head. Very hoppy in aroma and taste, and very borign like most pilseners.
