3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Golden color. White head dies down, but leaves some lace. Slight fruitiness (lemon??)...moderate hop spice and mellow malt in the subdued aroma...drinks with a good balance of malt and hop spice, neither seeming to really overpower the other...crisp finish. This is a pils I’m really learning to enjoy. Plenty of flavor and a good body but maintains its mellowness and smoothness. Slowly showing me that there is more to light colored lagers than I originally thought.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep yellow and quite active ... the typical German head dies a bit more quickly than most. Aroma of lemon and grass. Biscuity and sweet, a bit more syrupy than some. OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden in color, white head. Fairly balanced interplay with some light citrus and grassy hops. Lighter bodied. Lacking in any major character, but pleasant and relatively refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Straw colored yellow with a huge foamy white head. Nose is slighly skunked with light sweet malts, Euro hops, and light biscuit notes. Taste is sweet malts, light citrus, grass, flowery Euro hops, and buttery biscuits. Body is light and rather refreshing. Mild carbonation fizziness. Ends with light biscuity notes, citrus, grass, Euro hops and grains. Eh....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow, decent head. Aroma was sweetish, with a slight moldy hay hop presence. Also sweet in the mouth, more than I would care for, with a grassy hop finish. There was, however, a nice lingering bitterness that saved this beer for me. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught/pub at "2 Stelle" in Brescia. Compact and fairly good head. Limpid and bubbly yellow color. Medium scent, notes of malt, light alcohol and hoppines end. Fresh and palatable taste; fairly pungent and with a pretty bitter finish. Enough persistence and though acceptable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Faint floral hoppy aroma. Soft bittersweet flavour, light to medium body. Slight malty start with a fine but average hopbitter finish. Clean and well-made Pilsner type but still nothing special.

A touch of creamy head. Nice subtle bitterness to it. Smooth, with spice on tongue. Malty finish, went well with dinner. Light to Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Normally a Southern-German pils is expected to be less bitter than their Northern counterparts. But this is an "Edelherb" and hence rather hoppy - both bitter but also with a lovely aromatic hoppiness. Still this has room for a certain softness in body. Straw golden with a nice creamy head. 291099 and 060903
