Tap at Andy’s. Old stand by . Clean malty aroma. Crisp clean pale malts balanced with noble hops. Nice bitterness.

This was a classic German Pilsner. It had all the sytle characteristics. Rich with a complex hops to malt flavor. It was medium with a nice dry flavor at the end. Good German Pilsner.

Amber, golden. Smells of urine and skunk. Light and watery. No finish what so ever. Wow, really not good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2006 09.06.05 Half liter can. Pale golden straw under pure white head, small, lacing, quickly fading. Aroma is mild cereals, sort of oaty, and hay. Soft and mineral flavors like a dead grass and hay stew with a touch of salt. Becomes herbal, softer, and lightly floral with temp, but it’s all to mild. Simple and lovely, but becoming tedious and plain.
I’ve been drinking enough of this stuff now to warrant a re-rate, and not because I’’ve had a revelation of new flavors or aromas, just because I really like the beer. It deserves more points.

some skunk in the aroma mixed with perfume. This beer is a great thirst quencher, finishing dry and hoppy.

Hoppy for a pilsner and very drinkable, infact very very drinkable. Thin though a decent amount of flavour, however aftertaste can hold u can slightly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 First rating 6/2/7/3/14: total 3.2 on tuesday, august 23, 2005: A hoppy taste with some bitterness in the finish. When you’re planning of drinking this beer directly from the bottle, don’t! It tastes a lot better in a glass. But a reasonable pilsner. Just a bit to watery. (Bottle 33cl)
Rerate: Fresh aroma, hoppy taste and again some bitterness in the finish. pretty much the same. Pretty good pilsner. (Can 33cl)

A great Pils from the Western edge of Germany. Draught, bottled or even canned this is a consistent brew. A golden yellow brew, initially with a good head, pleasant moderate hoppy aroma and a light to moderate bitter which is maintained throughout. A lively drink with a light to medium body.
