3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle into tulip glass, very chilled. Pours a beautiful light golden yellow, crystalline, with white fluffy head. Good lacing. Aroma is malty with obvious hops. Very fluid and almost watery, as expected for a pilsener. Bitter finish with a nice hoppy taste that lingers for pretty long. A delicate, refined beer. Very sessionable, excellent with a good plate of sushi or salty appetizers. One of my favorite German pilseners so far.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice egg white head which drops to a thin coating across the beer. Appearance is thin pale sunny yellow, with bready aromas. Taste is light nut, astringent grassy, herbacious, oakey creaminess. Nice balance between bitter-sweet. good carbonation. I like it.

Classic golden Pilsener appearance, but somewhat dulled. Nice strong hoppy aroma. A pleasant sharp and dry taste, but not quite as crisp and refreshing as others.

OK, right off the bat; watch closely when buying this beer! When fresh, it is very good (as rated below). When old, it’s as bad as a beer can get, with sediment floating around, and the taste of old, stale yeast that is quite... well... bad! Bad batches (mishandled, probably left in a hot warehouse somewhere), seem to be more the norm from my experience.
Now to rate the good batch... pours a nice, deep golden color, with a nice fluffy, long lasting head.
Excellent aroma of fresh sweet malt, and a nice citrusy whiff of hops that blends very nicely with the malt fragrance. Nice, bread like malt flavor, with a very good citrus-hop flavor. Bitter, as a pilsner should be, but there’s quite a bit of malt in this beer to make it all come off well.
If the importers can work out the problems; as they are definitley from mishandled shipments rather than the beer itself being bad, then this tasty brew from Germany could end up being a big hit here on our shores!

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 Brilliant fresh grainy and subtle saaz, there is also something i cant describe, like a vanilla/creamy dessert aroma.
Nice and crips and dry with a slight sweet malt on the palate.
A brilliant pils.

Aparência dourada clara, quase sem espuma e com poucas bolhas. Um amargor leve e percepção de fruta no retrogosto. Mediana, pelo preço encontra-se melhores pilsens de verdade com qualidade superior.

It’s an ok pilsener, no sour aftertaste, but nothing special. As it is one of the cheaper German pilseners, I was positively surprised!
