3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling clear, very pale yellow lager. Large, rocky, mostly lasting white head.
The nose is of honey, pepper and apricot.
Sweet, tart and citrusy up front, the flavor is balanced by moderately bitter hops on the backside. Hints of mint and honey.
Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish. A good pils!

Very nice aroma, soft malt and hops. No skunk, glad this is not in a green bottle. Must be a fresh bottle. Beautiful pale gold, with a nice white head. Flavor is pure hops and malt. No yeast character or esters, as expected from a world class lager. Generous Sazz hops, with a fading malt tail. Aftertaste says MORE!

Golden colour with a generous head, really lasting. The flavour is well balanced and quite malty, with an hoppy finish, with the right amount of bitterness. Really nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(5 liter mini-keg, ABV 4,9%). Moderate aroma of hay, light golden colour, enormous head when poured from the mini-keg - like the head of a weissbier. Clean crisp flavour, good bitterness makes this a better-than-average pilsener. The mini-keg is great for parties!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of the better Kulmbacher beers that I've had the opportunity to drink. Pours a light yellow with a thick, creamy head. Hops are just about right for a pils, and leave a slight bitter finish. I'm pleased that this pils is a bit more maltier than most. I actually prefer this to Urquel. Mini-keg @ $10.99. This one is crisp and surprisingly refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz brown bottle. Freshness date of 03105. Whatever that stands for. Poured out a clear, very light, straw yellow color. Not much head to speak of, left a thin covering of fine bubbles at the top of the glass. Aromas of lemons, pilsner malts, yeast, and some bread in the nose. Tastes crisp, lemony, somewhat refreshing. Slight hops bite at the end, not much else. Much better than American macro swill, that much is certain.
