2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Metallic barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head - moderate effervescence. Slightly sour barley malt flavor. Light grassy hops finish. Standard - nothing that stands out.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of nicolascage. Clear, pale golden with a lively, white head. Some aromatic hops in the nose. Medium body with notes of malt and cardboard. The finish is dry and bitter. Not exactly impressive. 201107

50 cL bottle. Pours pale yellow with an initial dense towards diminished white head. Light fruity and hoppy aroma. Flavour holds a dry flavour and a decent bitterness into a dry finish. Solid brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Straw golden coloured, thin but lacing white head; shy sweetish malty, nearly caramelly nose, distinct herbal hoppiness with a faint citrusy tinge; quite dry, moderate bitter flavour; slightly bitter, short aftertaste; non demanding, but well done, though......

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden colour, clear; with very fine just off-white head, leaving shards of lace. Creamy, chalky nose leading to grain and some sweet pale malts, lined by spicey-herbal aroma’s rather than hops. Garden herbs, flowery. Dry-herbal and hoppy flavour with just enough malts for balance. Just a bit nondescript sweetness in mid-flavour, finish is again light, but fine hoppy-bitterness. Light body, rather well-carbonated. Maybe undramatic, but nonetheless fine-balanced and even refined southern German Pilsener. Pity I couldn’t find this one on tap.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Clear yellow to golden colour with a thick and lasting foamy white head. Hoppy aroma with sweet malts. Initially light malty taste with a dry, slightly hopbitter finish, light to medium bodied. A smooth but all in all not a convincing Pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Dortmunder: thanks!
Some hops and some malt in the flavor. Hints of glue and orange. Middle of the road pilsener with no apparent virtues and vices. Not al Bamberg beers are great...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Sweetish, herbal aroma. Slightly sweetish, flowery taste. But lack any significant hops and bitterness. Therefore not really great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dry and herbal bitterhop nose underlaid by honeyish malt.
Pale golden, champagne bubbles and nice white lacing head.
Medium body, broad hop profile which finishes on a crisp bitter note.
Just towards the end it weakens a bit and gets a watery feel.
Ok, but not overly exciting Pils.
