3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz green bottle.
After I pop the top there is no skunk luckily. It pours an incredibly pale and light straw yellow, really really light, the head is big and white and quickly dissipates.
t smells like your typical German Pils, it has a malt/hop balance. This one has a little more malt than most. The hops are grassy/medicinal/herbal.
The taste is also maltier than most pilseners. There is a light hop bitterness but overall this is too sweet for a pils.
It has high drinkability I’ll give it that, but it is below average for a German made Pils, still better than most American ones.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flasche. - Herrlich zitronig-hopfige Nase. Schlank, frisch und leicht zitronig im Antrunk. Zart malzsüßlich. Nur eine ganz leichte seifige Note stört den hervorragenden Eindruck. Trockener, hopfenaromatischer Abgang. - Sehr gutes norddeutsches Pils.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a white head that soon vanish. Malty and some wort in The Aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a balanced bitterness. Average carbonation. Mild balanced malty and mild hoppy flavor. Ok in the summer time.

11.2oz bottle - pours pale straw with white head. Nose is floral and a little bread. Fairly malty for the style, but still mildly bitter with some grassiness. Refreshing and definitely out of season.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Classically "Northern" Pils of the Jever family, with potent bittering hops and underdosed aroma hops, faintly citric, too metallic mf and a not so appealing greenish "quality", as if underbrewed and squeezed from unyielding grassy hops and unripe straw malts. Nose of pregnant cardboard and some lemon extract. Eager to taste what the "edelherb" version can add to this mid-Northern mainstay, originally true-to-style Pils (has this been watered down over time? Label mentions whole hops, no extract...)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of bread and grass notes. The flavor is more of the same, with some sweet malt, light hop bitterness and strong grass notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Einbecker is such a bitter beer-producing brewery that it is hard to believe some people will drink their (or this) beer more than once. First nose was of old fish, second one of old oat cookies. Taste of bitter hops, old cereals, grass and straw. Just too bitter, too light-bodied and too unenjoyable.

Bottle. Pours cæear pale golden with airy, quickly vanishing white head. Clear, bitter, hoppy aroma. Watery mouthfeel. Bitter taste of hop, distorted by a metallic finish. Dry aftertaste. Not much to write home about, but drinkable.
