3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[on tap at Ouzeri] Bright dark yellow that keeps a thin head that leaves lace on the glass sides. Clean aroma of noble hops and sweet maltiness. Grain and noble hops flavour up front and then sweet malt. Light to medium body with perfect CO2 levels, but unfortunately a little metallic and some astringency that comes in very late.

500ml can. Pale gold with a creamy white head. Malt nose with floral hop accents. Firm maltiness, noticable and pleasing hop bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 This is version that is imported in the USA by Bitburger Import Co of Venice, Florida. Decent head that didn’t last to the end. Flavor was of hops with hints of bitterness. It was just an average drink. Not a special; beer. Received another bottle for Christmas 2009. The beer has more flavor of bitter hops tham most pils. I upgraded my opriginal score.

I have drank several cases of this stuff. Its light on the hops flavor but heavy on the bitter side. I like bitter so this is a favorite.

Poured yellow with white fluffy head. Aroma was mostly yeast. The head left good lacing, and it was refreshing, if a little skunky? Not bad , but I am not a huge pils fan. And where is the STRONG HOP TASTE?

Very nice Pilsner. One rater spoke of similarity to Pilsner Urquell and Warsteiner and I agree, giving the nod to Urquell. Nice bitter begining, while leaving your mouth not too dry. Wish I could make mine this good!

tap. clear yellow with a fat white head. wee bit skunky. taste is sour grape and raw grain. finish is at least non threatening. at least it doesn’t leave a mark. but on the plus side i was drinking this in the company of a stunningly beautiful woman so it wasn’t that bad.

Another fizzy yellow beer. Rather boring. Medium head, slighty bitter. Almost the same as a Warsteiner Verum, but not as bitter. Nothing special.
