2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bubbly golden pour with a small head. Aromas are heavy of fermenting apples and pilsner-like hops. Flavors are crisp and well blended, but unspectacular. The fermented apple from the aroma comes through fairly heavily, as does a hop presence that is reminsicent of Becks.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale golden with a small white head. Big spicy saaz aroma, with some toasty Munich malt too. A great big bitterness hit first in the mouthful, followed by some pleasant biscuity light malts and herby hop flavours. The finish is dry, bitter and refreshing. A great pilsener!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Light sweet maltness with a very noteable touch of hops. Very bitter and clean flavour, both notes of malt and hops. A very classic north German pilsener.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Clear light yellow and thin bubbly white head. Scent of grain, some yeast. Funky taste, whoof. Pure funk. Someone stop me, Iím rating this lower than Bud Select. Guess Iím just not a pilsener girl.

Bottle, BSF, GBBF 06. Grabbed one of these just randomly so I could get back to work! Fizzy, thin, bitterness. Suds. Light on the palate.

Tap, Kartoffelnkeller, Lubeck. Yellow, fizzy. Thin palate and body, somewhat nasty bitterness (and I usually love hops). This beer is sadly overrated, I probably wonít bother with this ever again. Never ever Jever...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this classic pils for the first time yesterday evening. I bought it from the swedish off licence store Systembolget and thus had it from bottle. It poured pale yellow with big white top but I must say I was somewhat disapionted for the only taste I could really sense was that of bitter hoppiness. I guess there are notes of dry floral hoppy tastes and aromas as well but that was pretty much it. I didnít dislike really (even though it had a bit watery palate) but I will probably not buy it again. Maybe from tab to se if that is different. However, I do suspect that this well known lager suffers from transportation and is problably better (and more balanced) in its native country of northern Germany. Maybe Iíll re-rate if I get the opportunity.

I must have had a bottle that cycled way too many times. Nothing great about this beer that I can tell from this...Iíll have to go seek a draft style and re-rate.
