3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, bread), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Granted, there's not a whole lot here, but this is a very well executed light pils. Heck, this is better than a great many regular strength pilsners. Nice bright hop aroma and an excellent flavor balance. As you would expect, this is somewhere in between the Drive and the regular Bitburger. Like the other two, exceptionally clean tasting.
