3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught White, rocky head, which is fully lasting. Clear, yellow body. Fair lace. Weak aroma of malts and hops. Moderately bitter in the beginning, lightly bitter in the end. Lightly bodied and softly carbonated. A decent, hop-bitter pilsener that looks great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
New offering on tap at my local, served in a standard bar pilsener glass.
Made a good appearance, poured a clear pilsener yellowish gold with a foamy white head slowly that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking, good carbonation.
Had a good pilsener nose of floral and grassy hops with a backing sweet bready maltiness.
A malty crisp and smooth lightish medium bodied mouthfeel, good drinkability.
Crisp sweet bready maltiness with a balancing spicy, grassy hoppiness, a soft bitterness and a dry grainy and spicy finish that cleanses the palate.
Tasty and balanced pilsener, very refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Maybe my favorite Pilsener, maybe not. A style that doesn’t hit with a home run, but this one subsided all grassy malts / hoppiness and only slightly came out grassy hoppy. For that much, kudos. Not bad at all. Only very light grassy hops with almost a kolsch base. Very nicely balanced. Enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In my taste notes I wrote "Hops, hops and hops". Even though, a good beer on the beach in the summer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Rythym & Booze in Brigg. Gold, thin white head and good condition. Gentle sweet grain with a trace of flowery hops, quite chalky and grainy in th but with a solid underpinning of hop bitterness that just dominates in the finish

This stuff is everwhere in dusseldorf. Aroma is a mix of pilsner malts and grassy hops. Taste is similar, nothing special, easy drinking.
