4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best of over 50 German pilsners I tried in Germany. This review may be tilted as I was able to enjoy a stein fresh from the brewery with the Master Brewer in the brewery tap. A big favorite of mine. Far better than their regular pils, this bier adds more hops (Hallertauer pellet) and the finished beer shows it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marginally better than the megaeuropilsners. Aroma is all ’skunk’ right away and initially in the flavor as well, but it soon settles down a little and leaves a pretty decent german pilsener, grassy and quite strongly bittered.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Geez this stuff was bitter. But then again I’m not a great friend of pils anyway.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold; grassy, biscuity nose w/lemon, leather and blackcurrant; lean, spritzy body; somewhat thick noble hops against a light lemon note. Rooty bitterness. Finishes bitter, but with a surprising hit of sweet malt.
