2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color was very light golden. The head was thick, creamy, and white. The aroma was corn and very little malt. The flavor was corney and bitter. The palate was thin and the finish was abrupt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear blond brilliant color. Great head, white color, some rocky and persistent. Beautiful foam.
Aroma: malty but mainly hoppy dominance, with herby and citric touches. Smells fruity reminiscences of grapefruits, pineapple and lemon.
Flavor: sweet and ephemeral pale malty start. Progress to a refresh, intensive, persistent, resinous and nice dry-hoppiness, with herby tones. Dry and citric fruity taste reminiscences, like peel lemon and grapefruits. Astringent finish. Dry, malty and some mentholated aftertaste.
Palate: medium body with resinous hoppy texture. Medium carbonation.
Refreshing. Nice and intensive dry-hoppy.

This German Pilsener is really "Friesisch-Herb". One of my favourites amongst industrial made Pils. Beautiful body, carbonation and bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pretty clear yellow, nice golden tone to it. The head is billowing white, beautiful carbonation. Sweet grassy aroma, mild cardboard. The flavor is crisp, grassy, tart bitterness, sweet, apparent hop character. Above average on the palate, much more hop waxiness and liveliness than I usually expect.

Honestly this tastes every bit as bitter and hoppy as for example Samuel Adams but more grassy. Smells grassy too. Light yellow in color. Definitely good but not a favorite of mine.

Overall rating of 54?!?!?!?! Clearly the patrons of this website are biased towards over-hopped american microbrews. Don’t get me wrong; some really good shit comes out of america, but NOTHING as good as this. Hands down the best pilsner in the world......and probably.....THE BEST BEER IN THE WORLD>

Aroma was heavy grassy hops and German malt, taste was the same. If this were an American brew ,i would say it was skunked,but since I plunked it right from a shop in Munich, I’ll give it the benefit of a doubt. either way, only fair

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden color with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma is largely hops, with a grassy characteristic. The taste is dry with a smooth palate and a bitter hop aftertaste. Solid, but not more than average.

From the bottle, pours with a bubbly, medium lived head and an appetizing golden straw color, with lots of liveliness in the body. Aroma of German Hallertau and Saaz hops, grassy, fresh and earthy. Taste is distinctly dry, earthy and herbal, with a nice hop bitterness and smooth carbonated palate. Overall, all the things I’ve read about this being the driest German beer of all are true. This one is so dry that I really had to take my time and rehydrate between each sip.
