3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a nice look. The beer has a nice golden yellow color. The beer is beautifully clear. You can see some bubbles flow towards the top happily. The beer had a nice smell. It has a sweet fruity smell, of alcohol and some hops. I also smell a minimal bready yeast aroma. The smell is a nice mixture of sweet and a little bit sour and bitter. The balance is a bit off, there is a bit to much sweetness. The taste If the beer is nice. For a pilsener, it is very good. I taste a hint of caramel roast. There is also the same fresh and slightly sweet and bitter hop flavor. I also can taste the alcohol. The flavors are in better balance than the smell. The sweetness in the taste is a little bit less. The beer has a normal palate, not very special. This is just like in every ordinary pilsener. However, everything else is way better than most pilseners.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks, smells and tastes like what you expect of a Pilsener. Typical for northern Germany both from it’s commercial immage with the clamp cap and the dry bitterness. For me it’s just another big brewery Pilsener though - drinkable but pretty uneventful.

Easily drinkable pilsener, a little bit watery but that’s okay for an all day pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A színe tökéletes: tiszta aranysárga hófehér habbal elegendő felszálló bubival. Illata németesen száraz, fémes, szalmás erős komló bukéval.
Vékony testtel és tartós, masszív keserűséggel operál ami már középen megjelenik. Erős közepes a nem túl karakteres német vonalban. Jó.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours clear yellow golden with a large white head. The aroma has sweet pils malt, dough, pale malt and very rounded. It has a medium/light body with light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with astringency, dry crackery malt, sulfur and medicinal. The finish is kind of tinny. Fair pilsner.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This a very typical north German beer. Nice straw colour and a firm head. Some citric notes on the nose but mostly malt on the tongue. Palate a little weak but pleasant. Nice pils.
