3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 4/26/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good clean balance of pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice clean balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice German pilsener style. All around clean balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Grainy pils malts on the nose with light spice and a hint of earthiness. Presents a very clean and crisp palate with light grain flavors leading to a crisp, spicy, clean hop finish. Light and dry.

Bonne lager, mais pas assez amer ni houblonnée pour être une veritable pils.

Begins well enough. Golden color. Sparking... fizzy head. Goes down from there. Too bitter for a pilsner. Actually has a border line sour finish.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L507.04.2014. AROMA: grainy aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: very pale straw color and translucent. average white head with low retention. TASTE: slight grainy sweet flavour with medium-low bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours. PALATE: light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a bulk german pilsener that lacks noble hops presence.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: November 22, 2014... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: Cavs STILL trying to figure "it" out... APPEARANCE: sallow yellow, mostly clear body with large, consistent bubbles; three-finger sudsy head settles to a chunky consistency; lacing is sparse and filmy... AROMA: lightly aromatic, almost flowery at first; secondary malts are subtler like warm toast... PALATE: reasonably stable backbone, with some fizzle in the throat--a bit dry, oily and elusive....TASTE: a rather fruity pilsner, with some lemongrass and toast mixed in; an unassuming, apologetically soft rinser... OVERALL: a good prelude for nachos and salsa, but the initial experience is shallow, aftertaste is slight, and the rest is generally ho-hum example of the genre ...

Average beer with very bitter aftertaste and high carbonization. Couldn’t drink too much.

Helder bier met witte schuimkraag.
Mout in de neus, bitterig in de mond, blijft hangen.
Echte pils, duidelijk Duits!

Poured from bottle, clear straw with low foamy head. Aroma faint notes of toast and hay. Taste is dry and refreshing with notes of grass and some bitterness.

Ljust halmgul vätska med vitt fingertjockt skum. Brödig doft med lite syrlighet i bakgrunden. Krispig och med en torr inledning. Mot slutet lite kokta gröna ärtor.
