3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Light yellowish golden almost white in colour. Crystal clear. Throws a thick tall fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Floral hoppy aromas with a nutty background. Delicious crisp hop flavour, clearly from a big dose of saaz hops. Roasted notes. Lots of carbonation. Medium-bodied. Finishes with a very refreshing aftertaste consisting mainly of hop bitterness. Very nice North-German pilsener. This is one of the better pilseners I’ve had in a long time. Why don’t they make pilseners like this anymore?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This had a medium gold colored body with a white head. The aroma was slightly sweet with tobacco and some chocolate. Yes, interesting smells for the style. The taste was toffee with tea and some tobacco. A decent and strange beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pale golden colour. Classic Pils appearance, with its pale body and chalk white foam. Metallic lead aroma, bit herbal and dryish. Papery mouthfeel, bit harsh, still a grainy backbone. Thin. Dry, grassy bitterness.

(Bottle, thanks to Gnoff) Pours light, light yellow with a crisp white haed. Looks allmost like chanpagne. Smells soil, malt and herbs. Metal feeling. Bitter, sharp taste. A bit dry. Some alcohol, both in the taste and the smell. Bread taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold and clear in color. Huge white frothy head. Kind of surprised at the 49 rating. I thought this was good. Sort of light but very enjoyable and highly drinkable. Lacks a bit of spiciness but still good.

12 oz. Flip top bottle. Pour is a clear light straw yellow with a fluffy white head and lacing. It has a light sweet malt aroma with some herbal notes. The flavor is very light sweet malt will some hop at the end. Boring but not bad.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottled) Very pale yellow-golden color with a largeish, pillowy-foamy and lacy head. Acidic, corny-malty aroma with some sweetness. Acidic, corny-malty flavor with grassy hops and a dry, acidic finish. Light-bodied, acidic palate with foamy carbonation. A very boring pils - no need to buy again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours very pale golden color with a big, totally retained egg white head. Aroma is hay like with some spiciness. Flavor is nicely malty with a great bitter hoppy spiciness in the finish. This is a really good pils.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Straw body with a thick foamy white heady. Nose-honey, straw. Taste-way too bitter, bitter tannins like pecan shells. Puckering drying mouthfeel, like drinking Bud Light with powdered pecan shells. The way it dries out the mouth is amazing.
