3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Aroma has an almost berry sweetness along with grainy malt that has a delicate sweetness. The body is clear light gold/yellow with a slightly diminishing two finger thick tan head.
Lightly sweet fore is a touch watery and followed by sweet malt, cereal grains, a light bitterness in the fore keeps it in check. Fairly enjoyable lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours pale blonde/gold with a small white head. The aroma is full of hayfield qualities, as well as some sweet malts and yeast. This beerr is very dry, and quite refreshing. I don’t usually use the adjective ’refreshing’ when describing a beer, but this beer really is. The flavor is sweet light malts, and a slightly hoppy quality that goes very well with the crisp carbonation. Not usually my choice of beer, but this has definitely peaked my interest in the style.

This was very nice. Aroma is very clean as is the flavor. A slightly sweet doughy aroma, with some very nice carbonation levels. Just a bit sweet, bit a bit of spicy hoppiness, and a nice amount of citric acidity. Lingering bittersweet finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazed straw color with a fingers worth of rather dense off-white foam. Mildly citric aromas coupled with a fresh scone scent. LIghtly spritzy on the tongue.Light pale malt are the players in this one with only a touch of acidic and herbal hops to balance the light sweetness. A rather delicate pils. I am assuming this was only made for export as I see no one from europe has rated this one. AToo much citrus for my tastes. I do have to agree with Ernest that this does get better as it warms.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0204: Beer pours very pale gold color with a nice sized modertely retained egg white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is fairly benign, however what is ther is some straw, some malty bread notes, and a dash of hop spiciness. The hops really come through in the flavor and this beer has a nice hop bitterness in the flavor. Some good malt bread flavors make this beer a winner.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Creamy malt and moderate hops aroma. Golden yellow color with slight efferverscence and head. Creamy malt equally blended with hops and an interesting sweet apple finish. Nice body. Nice drinkable German pilsener - slightly better than average but not spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I see that this beer is in the 100th percentile by style and I struggle to understand what makes this beer so special. Pretty crisp, but not dry. Lightly sweet and malty with moderate hop bite to be expected for the style. A little maltier than one might expect.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500 ml bottle: $2.75 at Liquid Solutions in Tigard, OR) Sweet and mildly malty, balanced nicely by a lightly bitter and gently spicy hops, there is also a fair amount of corn/grain flavor here. The nose is mostly sweet corn/grain with perhaps just a touch of hops. Nice body for a pilsner. The hops and pronounced carbonation keep the palate clean and lively. Medium yellow in color. The medium size head is very white in color and quickly fades to just a rim, leaving no lacing. This is a good, but not great German pilsner, but would be better if the malt profile had a less pronounced corn flavor.

Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malt (grass and grain) a touch of hop spiciness. Medium to light bodied Pilsner. Malts are sweet, bready and a little grassy. Hops are mild, slightly herbal and spicy. Somewhat sweet, yet the beer is balanced by a nice dry finish. Smooth tasting Pilsner. Nice balance throughout. A little surprised by the dry finish, but a nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
