3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Herbacious nose with some metal hints and sweet malt; well balanced; it has a nice smooth texture and body backing up some tangy bitterness, again metallic notes. Without the detracting ferrous hints I’m so sensitive to, this would be a very nice brew, otherwise it’s just good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Compact and adherent foam, discreet persistence. Limpid yellow color much and bubbly one. Good aspect. Mineral water and malt notes, light and watery scent. Fresh and prickly taste; much simple and without pretensions. Pungent and moderately bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow with small white head. Good amount of both maltiness and hoppiness up front in the aroma. Grassy, hoppy flavor, and as others mentioned quite hoppy for a German Pilsener.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pungent aroma fills your nose as the thin head fizzles away. This beer has a crisp, strong flavor that tricked me into thinking this beer was a higher alcohol content than the 4.8%. For a Pilsner I was surprised at the strong hop presence. Pretty good German beer!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clean gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly leavinf a faint rim around the glass. Sour malt aroma with a hoppy nose and notes of yeast. Hoppy and sour malt flavor with faint olive notes. Fizzy and light palate that feels silky near the end.

3/28/05: Plastic Bottle.
Honey aroma (smells like a weak version of Honey Robitussin Cough Syrup). Yellow bodied. Light honey-lemon flavor. Better than a typical Pils.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet aroma that smells like grain. Grassy flavor. Hoppy finish. Not bad, but I’m not a fan of Pilseners.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting european pilsener, with a surprisingly strong hop bite to it. Quite refreshing and would make a nice session beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colour with medium white head, quickly diminishing. Strawy and hoppy aroma. Soft sweet malty flavour with hoppy dry finish. A light decent Pisener type, quite popular in Germany and elsewhere.
