On tap at the brewery in Bamberg. Not quite as good as the regular lager, some stale cardboard on aroma, clean in mouoth some hop on finish, bit earthy, noble hop some green hop. Easy drinking with a decent sting on the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 500ml bottle. Slim-headed brilliant gold. Fizz, honey, peanut, boiled corn aroma becoming grassy. Grassy with hints of dried curry leaf, popcorn, bread stick, monkey nut. Ultimately an aromatic, clipped, new-mown lagerdom reigns. Peanut and Butterkist if you go digging. Fine lager and another winner from the polystyrene-chipped, partitioned Beermerchants box of joy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
draught at the Brewery + 50cl bottles - Very decent Pilsener, especially drom draught. Fresh grassy/strawy hops, citrus and honey aromas in a malt-forward center, lingering bitterness, light-medium palate. Great thirst quencher and go-to option @Fässla (rather than their Helles). Some more dusty/cardboard malt qualities and slight alcoholic notes in the bottle version.
