3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The colour is pale white; the foam is white, airy and it forms a large firm head.
The smell is full of bread-like malt with a shade of sweetness and some bitter hops.
The carbonation is fresh and a bit soft on the tongue.
The taste is rather soft at first, but it develops into a generous bitterness and an increasing sweetness with some fine body. The aftertaste is long wits some bittersweet notes and a grand bitterness.
I found this German pilsner much better than I had expected!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Golden colour, average head. Grainy nose. Fairly dry with raw mellow mouthfeel. Some grassy hops saves it and creates a bitter finish. A small step up from mainstream lagers, but the malt profile need some work.

Pale color, bleak flavor; the only decent thing is the bitterness that I find quite enjoyable. Easily forgotten.
