3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale clear golden, white head. Big crisp saaz aroma. The mouthful consists of some basic munich malts, delivering some breadyness, and a crisp hoppy dry finish. Its very one dimensional, but still enjoyable.

One of my favourites - light golden color, heavy head. very nice hoppy taste.Very crisp refreshing taste what the carbonation increases further. When I have a beer at home for casual drinking this is the one.

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.

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.

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.
