4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 500ml can. A very good pilsener, very smooth mouthfeel and excellent taste of fresh lemony, springy hops, Der Koenig der Biere? Maybe not, but it beats the shit out of Budweiser.
12 oz bottle, I’ve also had this from a can and it was pretty good.
It pours a deep gold with a nice big white head.
One of the better smelling pilseners, this is the definition of a balanced traditional pilsener in the nose.
It is one of the more flavorful pilseners, it is nicely balanced, not the best flavor, but good.
It’s a great pilsener, maybe better out of the can too which is rare.

Kolor złotawo żółty, piana dosyć gęsta i umiarkowanie szybko opadająca. Zapach typowo chmielowy z nutą miodu. Łagodny smak soczystej trawy z przyjemną, lekko ziołową goryczką.

Surprising this has been left unrated so long, quite a normal available German beer. Pale yellao, white foam. Regular aroma and taste, crisp. (Arnhem 201503)

Keg at the Flying Pig, Cambridge. Oh the curse of the rater: some delicious ales tonight but I’m drinking this. Mid gold, clear with plentiful carbonation. Thinnish white film of head. Smells like wet cardboard with a bit of piss. Pissed-on-by-a-sick dog cardboard? Taste is saccharin with an acrid note. Body is fine but my oh my this is a hard sell.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 Very rich aroma of floral hops, hay and roasted malt with some skunkiness to it. Pours clear golden liquid with a frothy white head. Tastes very fresh, almost watery, with a flavour of bitter, grassy hops. The palate is just like water, feels very light in the mouth, thin and creamy texture and surprisingly not very fizzy. Aftertaste of bitter hops. I’m kind of diappointed that the diverse aroma didn’t translate into the flavour. It’s still a decent Pilsener though and definitely very drinkable.
