3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very distinct German Pilsener. Very hop forward and bitter, could use more biscuit character. Still not a huge fan of German pilsener...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can, 4.9% a/v
Pours a light straw colour with a generous white head. Pretty nice looking beer. Nose is light malt with a nice sharp hop note. Tastes malty at first with a very quick move to a bitter hop flavour and then ends very dry and clean. I sampled it a bit warm, definitely would have been better cold. Overall a very nice clean pils.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata da Squillari (l’unico posto dove non la vendono in dispendiose confezioni da 4 e più???), versa una birra giallina completamente trasparente con pochissima schiuma. Aroma noioso di cereale e qualcosa di oleoso/erbaceo (probabilmente il luppolo), sapore dolce con una punta del solito saponoso Bitburger nel finale (anche se meno presente). Corpo molto acquoso. Da dimenticare.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL can: Very grainy aroma with sharp hops. Carbonated, Yellow gold body and thick, frothy white head (very appealing). Flavor is sharp and very bitter with a very subdued malt character and tends to get dryer as the beer warms, leaving a bitter aftertaste behind for many minutes to come. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and refreshing. Where was this stuff when I was at the festhallen this Oktoberfest? Must’ve missed it...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Did not like this the second time. Re-scored to an in-between score.
Original score a 4.1 I like this beer a lot. Looks and smells fine. Has a nice dry flavor with a good crisp finish and is quite tasty.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice-looking clear yellow pilsner color, aroma of grass, dirt. Taste is clean and clear, a little brownish, thin dry mouthfeel but refreshing, German pils hops. Slightly bitter, overall a nice easy beer.

Bottle. Lights straw, with a massive white head. Light malt aroma. Very light body, with a good balance of malt and hops. Very dry, with a quick finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Grew up with that stuff, hence I have a soft spot for it. However, it does not seem to travel wel. The graininess and hoppiness has dissipated and malts are at the forefront. There is some caramel now very pronounced and the finish is not as crips as it should be. Bummer. It is much better fresh in Germany, trust me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Weak aroma of malt with a little hops. Med yellow hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is a little sweet and malty with a clean finish. Palate is watery soft and light bodied. No desire to try again.
