4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Bottle - Creamy floral aroma. Clear yellow color with ample long-lasting head. Creamy malt flavor with a very interesting bitter hops finish with a hint of smokiness. A very interesting pils - the more I drink, the more the smokiness came out. A very unique pilsener.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly malty and too sweet. A bitter finish though. Also some fruitiness, but as a whole too stale for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 In the 0.5L bottle in Mannheim. Yellow high carbonated with a fluffy big head in my label-matching fluted glass. Good yeasty malty aroma. Strong bitter bite upfront that mellows with a few more sips. Not bad, but not the best German pilsner I had on this day. UPDATE: Now on tap at the Huber Haus 10/18/05.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks the part of the ubiquitous pilsener. Uninteresting (non-existent?) aroma. Peculiar bittersweet taste - more interesting than an ordinary pilsener, but this may be an acquired taste. It certainly doesn’t enchant me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden yellow witha medium foamy head that quickly fades. Dusty, fruity and sweet nose; taste is crips, refreshing and slightly bitter. A solid German Pils.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 (5 liter minikeg, bought in Norway - ABV here is 4.5%). Typical pils golden colour, large head. Hoppy but not very strong aroma. Flavour is surprisingly malty, slightly sweeter and less crisp than the somewhat stronger EKU Pilsner which I prefer (also in a minikeg). Still, this is a rather tasty pilsener, miles ahead of the many tasteless "neutral" pilseners you get these days.
