3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours bright and very pale golden, practically yellowish, moderate body saturation and almost perfectly clear texture, head is initially medium, foamy to frothy, greyish white in colour, quite bubbly, giving nice lacing.
Aroma: Very pure aroma of Classic German Pilsener, strong notes of graphite, chalk, lemon, lime, spices, white and green pepper, slightly herbal but still more spicy, thin grainy-malty background dominated by hoppy top, light gravity beer, notes of whipped cream.
Flavour: Very fine herbal-spicy hoppy top followed almost imediately by a sharp bitter hoppyness displayed at the back of the tongue together with notes of graphite, flour, very explicitly pronounced barley grains, lemon, lime, notes of rust, metalic, iron, highly bitter, highly mineral, finish duration is long with dominating notes of grapefruit seeds and green pepper. Really good Classic German Pilsener.
Palate: Body is light to medium, texture is definitely strongly dry, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is highly astringent and sharp hoppy with domination of dry notes of chalk, barley grains, pepper, graphite, very clean and classic for its style.

Pilsen com leve gosto e aroma de malte e lúpulo, mas sem destacar-se das demais. Falta personalidade. Para refrescar.

Bottled (BB 04/2009)
Courtesy of bierkoning, thanks Edo!
Pale yellow color, decent white head, some lace. Aroma is grainy, metallic and slightly grassy hoppy with hints of sweetness. Starts quite bitter. Sweet, slightly buttery maltyness and good amount of hops. Long bitter aftertaste. Slightly fizzy. Although malt base is a bit lame, has decent hoppyness, which makes this quite good (propably) cheap session pils.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden with an OK head. The aroma has a light sweetness, notes of malt and light flower. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt, grain, grass and the finish is slightly dry and bitter. Not outstanding in any way.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from can. Pours a very clear, very pale yellow with moderate carbonation and a decent head. Not much for the nostrils. Surprisingly bitter tasting, and I also noted a metallic flavor, although I suppose the can could be to blame for that. Like any German beer: very drinkable, but not superb.
