2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 500 ml bottle. Finland. (HHOK).
Clear golden colour with big white head.
I was very surprised when I found milk chocolate aroma on a German Pilsener. Also a bit metallic and hoppy aroma. A bit harsh hoppy flavour with some metallic notes. Quite regular German Pils.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Courtesy of Retorp. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a massive pillowy white head. Gentle settling of the head but decent retention and some graceful lacing of the glass. Aroma is slightly grassy with notes of spice, hay, bread, yeast, slight floral notes. Flavor is watery with notes of grass, wheat, bread and hops. None of the flavors are particularly strong. Light bodied with a quick finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Very pale golden with a medium, firm and lacy head. Buttery-grainy-malty nose with herby-aromatic hops and hints of metal. Dryish, slightly acidic flavor with herby hops and a reasonable body for the style. Quite light-bodied, but not watery with quite high, slightly fizzy carbonation. A decent pils, although slightly too harsh and carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tons of hay together with some nice base malt and spicy lemon hops note. Crystal clear gold under a contiguous white flanel blanket that is very lacy. Unimpressive and standard German Pils flavour: some sweet base malt with lots of bitter hops and only a smidgeon of hops flavour. Some ethanol. Sort of tangy feel, with moderate carbonation, light to medium body, slightly bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Nice classic German pils aroma. Beany spicy hops, fresh. Light sweet pilsner malt with just a bit of sulfur. Pleasant and reminiscent of visits to beer halls. Pale golden clear with creamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Light carbonic fizziness. Starts with light pils sweetness, light sulfur and some carbonic acidity. Beany spicy hops flavor, with mild bitter character in the finish. Light and refreshing. A bit soft in the end. Nice pils.
