3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight vanilla aroma. Medium to full bodied. Very malty pilsener. Hoppy and flowery with vanilla. Maybe a bit too flowery for my taste, but indeed a well hopped and well brewed pilsener. Thanks for the bottle, Dortmunder.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy, pale golden colour. Lacey medium head. Hoppy aroma. Very refreshing hop-bitter taste with flowery notes, and a very light sweetness. Very nice and balanced, as flowery notes in a Pilsener are often accompanied by a too strong sweetness and staleness. Not in this one. Very good Pilsner of the drier variety.
