3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smooth and slightly hopped, this pilsener is easy drinking but borderline boring drinking. Had it in a bottle at a bar.

Everything one could want in a pilsner with a dash of herbs thrown in there to raise the bar.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Straw yellow color with a smallish, lacy head. Reasonably crisp, hoppy aroma. Crisply hoppy flavor, balanced with some malt and hints of honey and toffee. Refreshing, quite light-bodied and bitter palate with balanced carbonation. A very straightforward, balanced pils, with the sole purpose of refreshing. Does it quite well, too.

good dry hoppy pilsner. herbal aroma, somewhat skunky(might be the hop). good example of a bitter north german style pilsner. not bad, but i expected a little more.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice pilsener pour, pale gold, with a light fluffy head which receded to a float and minimal lacing. Smelled a bit skunky, though the exp. date was in 2006. Beyond that, it kind of smelled like Bud. There was a small herbal character. Tasted better with some herbal fruitiness and a good dose of hops, no noticeable malt. Not bad, but nowhere near great. Thin in the mouth, once again, its a hoppy Bud, if you ask me.

Bottle - June 2005
Thypicall lager golden appareance, good ( somewhat fizzy) carbonatation. A nice herbal arome. Very dry, somewhat skunky ( maybe because of the bottle or mental induced because of it). A fine German Pilsner, but i expected something more of it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Once upon a time, one of my all time favorite beers. Still a benchmark Pilsener - dry and crisp with a sharp hop bite. A great session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very pale with a nice pilsener head. Surprisingly strong aroma of hops and freshly baked bread. Very crisp, with an excellent hop bite. More flavorful than other pilsners I’ve tried. I liked it a lot.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Quite big, frothy and lacey head. Pale golden colour. Heavy grass aroma and hoppiness. Hoppy, herbal taste with a unusual sweetness. Unusual for northern-German pilsners. Quite fullbodied for a pilsner. Bitter, but not that dry finish. Clean and crisp. If they would just change to brown glass, this would be the top northern Pilsner.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Straw-golden with a creamy head. Very malty nose and body. Sharp, fresh hoppiness both bitter and aromatic. Nice and very typical North-German pilsener. 131199
