Pours a straw yellow. Light head. I couldn’t get any scent out of this at all. Taste was standard pilsner. Not unpleasant, just nothing that sticks out. Move along folks...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013
Pale gold colour; Razor thin head and white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small but sticky lacing with very active and lasting carbonation, close to fizzy; Light but fragrant aroma of light honey, lemon, light sweet malt and orange; Nice and light sweet taste of orange peel, malt, bitter lime and grass; Mid to Light body, slick palate. Taste profile is dominated by initial light orange / citrus and floral followed by expressive malt, and finishes with strong, lingering and pleasing mid-hop bitterness; Dry after taste, very crisp and easy to mouth.
Comments: this is a very well-made pilsenser. Its taste is very close to Rothaus Pils with that distinctive, grassy hoppiness - bitter, penetrating yet pleasant. With underwhelming head and aroma aside, everything else works out nicely. After having its EIPA, Lager and now this, this brand really grows on me. Highly recommended!
