3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery in Nov. 2013: Dull and simple nose of hard lemon candy, hay, fennel seed and a hint of alcohol. Subdued carbonation softly prickles. Firmly hoppy and mildly spicy with a pronounced Spalt punch yielding to a slippery fruitiness. Pils malt is somewhat grainy and raspy as it lends a deeply toasted hat accent amid a muted grassy hop twang. Hint of flowers, as well. Finishes soft and maltcentric, with restrained Spalt and some grainy malt. Pretty straightforward to me. Malt is a tad sloppy and doesn’t seem all that skillfully extracted, and the hops aren’t very dynamic or vital. Middle of the road.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Honig.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs, grass), with a light note of egg.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slighty husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Thin, watery, and kinda husky (which gets more and more pronounced as it warms). Otherwise the balance is pretty good and the aroma does have some life in it...but overall it’s just mediocre.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery in Tiefenellern. Clear gold with a fine white head. A hoppy, juicy, lemony, sugar cookie and baked cracker Pilsner with respectable cleanliness. As it warms and opens the lemon juiciness becomes stronger and a tart baked bread quality seems to stand out more. Balanced, hoppy, clean malt, cleanly fermented, medium-light body, decent carbonation, some roughness / husks, especially in the back, but overall its enjoyable and seems to be in good shape.

50 cl bottle @ Timo A. Rated on 18.11.2009
Bright appearance with disappearing head. Aroma is stale with bready malt. Flavour is also stale with bready malt, some grain and hints of grassy hops. Palate has just right amount of CO2. Too bready and feels a bit harsh too.
