3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: wow, no skunk out of the bottle despite green bottling! Amazing. Not much to smell here until it’s poured into the glass where the unmistakable and pleasing aroma of noble hops becomes apparent. There is also a bit of grass. Flavor: again pretty mild at first, but then there is a little hop bitterness in the finish. Very clean. Reminded me a little of Warsteiner, but a little more refined, if not quite as flavorful or popcorn-y. Nice pils. Took a risk getting a six-pack of these without sampling beforehand, but I’m glad I did. Will work very well for the summer especially.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear, pale golden body, with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma of grains, hay, grass, honey. Taste is a bit watery, with grains, bread, herbs, honey. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a low carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grains and herbs. Average Pilsener, nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a typical golden color, clear, and topps the glass with an average white foamy head that goes away rather soon.
The aroma is again nothing special. There are some malts and some (sweet) grains present.
The tatse naturally follows the nose. Sweet start, followed by balanced body coming together with mild (only just) bitterness.
Nice, drinkable, ordinary.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very malty yet light bodied and crisp. I found this to be extremely peculiar; this is the first Austrian Pilsner that I’ve tried and it was completely unlike German or Czech Pilsners in aroma. The aroma had a strong maltiness, suggesting of sourness, and strongly reminiscent of an Oktoberfest, but slightly more grassy. Yet the body was light and the mouthfeel crisp. The flavor was less bitter than I was expecting but still moderately bitter. Enjoyable and I’d drink again--unique in character and I can see craving this particular style of beer; most beers that are this malty in aroma are on the heavier side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. green bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a hazed, light gold hue, with white, sudsy head froth that diminished rather quickly to a bubbly film, but left a lasting amount of patchy lacing. The aroma presented a strong lager nose that was Pils malt, some husk-like scent, and a bit of graininess. Light bodied, the lively carbonation accentuated the noticeably earthy, dry, and lingering hop bitterness, and finished in like fashion. Amazingly, no green bottle skunk! Sessionable, crisp, and pretty clean.
