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)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured yellow from the bottle (not golden). No lasting head or lacing. Small, champagne-like bubbles rising throughout the glass. The aroma is slightly skunky (its imported from Germany, by the way). Also some bread aroma (not sure if its from hops or malt). The flavor is only average. Not overpowering with hops or malt flavors. Watery texture and a very dry finish. Quite drinkable, but nothing special. When I toured Germany in 1982, our bus driver claimed that this is the best beer brewed in Germany. Hmm. Not sure if I agree with him.

Standard pilsener. Not much to say about that. Better than some of the others though..

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not too bad. A definite euro lager. Not as hopped as the bohemians, but good. Fruity with some residual sweetness. Nice color, bready nose. Easy drinker.

Very good beer. Very goldy color, with aroma and taste worth the try.
Cream is very rich, a little sour in the end.
Very good mouthfeel

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light golden with a thin white head that quickly and fully recedes. Aroma of bready malt and grassy hops. Taste is surprising sweet and a bit chewy. Finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. There’s some quality in here. It might be mass-produced, but it’s not swill.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Minimal head which was around barely long enough to say boo. The classic hops/malt nose, with a hint of bananas. Flavour was okay, with a fairly thin body and slightly bitter finish, but of course it is a pilsener, so it is to be expected.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The bottle poured a crystal clear golden beverage with a small fizzy white head that did not last long and left no lacing. The aroma was clean with floral hops and some malt noticeable. It had a light body with lively carbonation and thin texture. The carbonation and hops combine to give a sharp bitter edge in the beginning. This mellows and is rounded off by the growing presence of malt in the middle. The finish is long and somewhat bitter.
