3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This comes as Gambrinus Weidener Pils. The aroma has notes of flower, straw and malt, very pleasant. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of straw, flower, bread and malt, and it’s fairly dry with a light bitterness in the finish - pleasant!

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of grainy malts, herbs and stinging citrus. Flavour is rather strong on grainy malts, harsh grassy hops and citrus. Light bodied and harsh mouthfeel with a harsh grainy finish with grassy bitterness. Good, although a bit harsh.

Aroma has butter, some grainy malt. Flavour is quite dry with grainy malt, some grassy hops and hints of butter. Very typical German pilsener with no flaws.

Thanks to quack-duck for that one. Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild-hoppy, modest dry, a bit sourish. Some grasy hints. Finish still mild, less dry, notes of lemon. Nice!

Hazy yellow with a white head. Flavor pretty standard for the style. Average texture. Not bad.

5l cask from the brewery. Clear pale yellow, large and creamy white head. Hoppy aroma. Light and elegant malty base with good aromatic and bitter hops with fresh grass, slightly resiny. Low carbonation, highly drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Medium gold color with a thick, foamy white head. Settles fairly fast with a bit of lacing left.
S - Some pale malts and a fair amount of grassy hops.
T - Well balanced beer, with some malt sweetness (a bit of caramel and bread) and some grassy and bitter hop taste. Both are present throughout just fading in and out with each other.
M - Light body that is fairly refreshing. A little watery with moderate carbonation.
D - Easy to drink beer that is refreshing, but it doesn’t really leave me craving another. I would drink it if it were there but not reach for it.
Notes: Decent, easy to drink beer. Nothing special about it, but just a simple beer that is well balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a fluffy foamy white head. Light-sweet malty and strawy nose with hay and herbal hops. Soft-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate to crispy carbonation. Herbal hops from the beginning on a soft malty base; almost dry and slightly bitter finish with a fairly good balance between the malt and slightly spicy hops. Not world-shaking but pretty drinkable.
