3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold in colour with slightly clumpy lsting head. Familiar starting pilsener aroma quickly disapears leaving a lasting light vegatble aroma. Initial sweetness on the tongue followed by some bitterness and a sharp bitter but not mouth drying finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, from Beers of Europe (website). Rich, golden colour, nice frothy head, fairly fizzy. Dry, slightly hoppy flavour, very crisp. Not much of a development in flavour, but a lingering bitterness, that recedes slowly. Classoc German technology - refreshing, and flavours are balanced and dry, without being harsh.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Pale golden with minimal head. Aroma of metal and vegetables. Crisp and light bodied with some harsh grassy bitterness. Sadly this beer starts to lean more towards latin american lager than german pilsener nowadays.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sweet malt, a bit metallic bitterhop, sulphury notes.
Yellowish, soapy head.
Apallingly thinbodied - hard to taste anything over the water - appareantly too much Danube in this one.

I tried this classic German Pils(northern style brewed in south)and thought it was mildly carbonated,hoppy and dry tasting.Pleasant texture and aftertaste(slighly bitter),with a beautiful golden colour.Would look for this beer again.Now available in Canada.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pale gold colour, with light lacy head. Plenty of bitter, dry hop that went from start to finish. I thought it was a little one dimensional and offered little in the way of interest or complexity. Further hop towards the end. Refreshing enough but not challenging.

Very pale flat looking beer. Lightly hopped aroma with a fairly watery but slightly sweet flavour. Clean tasting but bland.
