2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried this beer on October 18, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a very pale gold colour with a large foamy white head which quickly disappeared. The aroma was a combination of citrusy hops with some grainy backup. The mouthfeel was this, slightly watery, with ample carbonation. The flavour was slighty hoppy and a little bitter.

Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a nice fizzy white head. Aroma has a nice clean malt background with a mild hop spiciness. Flavor is very much the same with a pleasant balanced bitter at then end. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad.

A very distinct German Pilsener. Very hop forward and bitter, could use more biscuit character. Still not a huge fan of German pilsener...

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.

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...

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.

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.
