2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very malt-forward, lots of corn and hay notes. Interestingly enough I didn’t get any expected grassy skunky aromas, much sweeter smelling than I expected . The appearance is pale yellow with almost no head small head. The taste was a bit flat...I’m going to contribute this to not being fresh after shipping from Germany to the US. Hops were there but not nearly as sharp or crisp as I wanted. The finish was drier which saved this beer a bit for me. After such a sweet aroma and less than moving hop profile the finish had to be much improved for me not to call this a complete dissapointment. Thin mouthfeel but of course it is supposed to be. Not great but not terrible, would love to have a bottle closer to the source and fresh. I will try again if I have that opprotunity becuase a good pilsner is hard to beat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty simple pils. The dryness is slight, just enough to make it not taste like a plain lager. Good.

50cl bottle: pours a clear pale champagne golden with a stringy lacing white head. Has a clean floral noble hoppy nose with some light pale malty undertones. Starts with decent fullness and light malty sweetness with crisp grassy hop flavor and light citrus before a smooth drier bittersweet finish. True to style and very drinkable.
