4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma reminiscent of papayas, bananas etc. Pours a mellow yellow with a small head. Flavour is quite dry and biscuity. Slightly warming too, impressive for a pils. This is all around one of the best pilsners I’ve tasted.

Hoppy and vegetal aroma. Not much bitterness for a pilsner but a great taste. I call it a everyday beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml can from one of the only decent beer stores I know of. Pours a nice golden pilsner colour, with the classic large German white, fluffy head. Aroma: Nice and fruity, with the typical floral hoppiness. Taste: More or less the exact same as the aroma, with some biscuity malts and a surprisingly nice Noble hop bite thrown in. Nothing spectacular, nothing unique, just a nice tall refreshing glass of a German Pilsener, which is exactly what I was expecting. And in that sense, it is beautiful in it’s simplicity. Amongst other imported options around here, this one is a pretty good example of this style IMHO, and I tend to consider myself a lager-lover of sorts.

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.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml can. From Quebec "Biere de la Foret Noire". Best before 08/11.
It pours a clear, pale gold, a very light shade of it, with a sterile-looking foamy white head that leaves only a few bits of lacing.
The smell is suber grainy. Grain, grain, grain, and more grain. There is a little bit of hop twang but not much. For a German Pils, it is pretty cheap smelling.
The flavor is a lot better. It is smooth and bready with a balanced level of hops that even provide a small kick of bitterness in the finish. It is a light, cheap, easy drinker of a pils. But it is still tasty.
Serving type: can

Golden amber. Fruity undertones. Good hopping. Pale malt infulence. Lots of palate. Not sure about if it was pastuerised or filtered, because of a very lightly cloudy particled appearance. Good lager style aroma, but not particularly strong.

"Tafelgetränk seiner Majestät, Kaiser Wilhelm II." Die Ausgewogenheit zwischen Malz und Hopfen ist außergewöhnlich gut gelungen. Im Antrunk frisch-malzig und im Abgang dann die hopfige Herbe; Ideal für ein Pils!
