My favourite pilsener, hoppy, fresh and perfect as an appetizer. Large head, greenish colour, not as complex as an ale of course, but in this category the best.

12 oz bottle. Not a huge fan of the skunky beers - commonly found in the classic germans. However, I did enjoy this beer. It made me feel like more of a man.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My favourite beer. A proper German Pilsener, which is not everyone’s taste, as it is quite bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 L bottle, ’bbe’ Nov 07. Fresh hoppy aromas hit the nostrils as soon as the bottle is opened, followed by an airy biscuit cake once in the glass. This glass also displays a clear golden body topped with a sizeable snow white froth. Clean, dry and bitter taste with a lasting pronounced bitter aftertaste. More hops retronasally. Modest body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 tap at Laschet’s. Pours a nice yellow gold, not sure about the copper notes that people are seeing. Fluffy dissipating head. Nose is distinct pilsner with a clean herbal hop note with minimal malts. Taste is a nice, smooth bitterness with a touch of sweetness, though finish is very dry. Little breadiness, lively carbonation. A fine example.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I know I’ve enjoyed this a few times before poured draught into a plastic cup at the Gowanus Yacht Club on some warm nights, but don’t remember any of the real finer features. Here, from a bottle, it pours a light lagery gold with a moussy white head. Initial "skunky" musty/dusty aroma common in the imported green bottles dissipates eventually in the glass to a fresher straw and light hop aroma. Flavor of straw to light cereal malts with some decent lemon-pith hoppy bitteness in the back. Where available, it’s a fairly good choice for an imported German. However, nothing really distinctive from say, Pilsner Urquell or Paulaner Pils.
