1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can - Watery, bland, overcarbonated and almost completely devoid of flavour.
If it wasn’t from Germany, this could be confused for Blue or other North American swill.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is what a true, classic pilsner should taste like..Slightly bitter, clean, and refreshing.
A wonderfully pale, flowery aroma. a clear, pale yet bright color.
Flavor starts off strong yet not overpowering, finishes off cleanly.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ordered this one at dinner. Only beer that stood out against the list of macros and standard imports. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of sweet malts and some hops. Hops heavier in the tastes. Sweet. Not a bad beer considering the alternatives.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice pils with a distinctive, smooth palate. A little sweet and although you notice the hops a bit as it warms, it isn’t balanced at all. Good for the style.

A pretty solid everyday beer. No really distinguishable flavors except for a little bit of sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweetness with some bittnerness. Had this right after a Warsteiner and they were somewhat similar. This one was sweeter, but the colors and aromas were indistinguishable.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little better than most pilsners. Yellow, medium lating head. Not much aroma, flavor mild, perhaps grassy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
always did like this beer. Probably one of my first real german pils. Still holds memories of my first trip to the brickskeller. Now it also reminds me of Berlin.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale, with a big separated head. Aroma is a little bland, as is the flavor. Bubbly, although too bubbly maybe. Could be a little better.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden colour with big white head. Aroma has some swetness along with the hoppy bitterness. Flavor is mostly hoppy and bitter with a dry finish.
