2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of the less good beers from Bamberg. A little artitifial and metallic. A little like the Belgian sidcount pilseners. It is sour instead of bitter.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw golden, low carbonation, low head.
Tilts pretty much over to the malt side. Flat sticky mouthfeel, really needs the zing off bitterhops to be refreshing.

Vey pale golden hue. White sticky head. Assertive malts first, light bodied, finisheing salty and bitter, very pleasant and drinkable. A decent pils, I like the Mahrs weisse bock better.

Lightly carbonated for a pilsner. Has some light bitterness. More malt than some pilseners. Good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid hoppy aroma, minty and seemingly saaz-like to me (what do I know). Bitterness is firm with a rather substantial malt quality. It feels nice on the tongue, but is surprisingly quite undercarbonated for a pils.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 Great hops taste. Pleasantly bitter. - rerated 3/21/04: I had the appearance rated too high - very thin looking; the aroma is fresh, and so is the taste, but the taste isn't up to the level of others that I've rated as 9

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
very pale, but quite malty tasting. i didn’t get much bitterness out of this at all - just a bit of saltiness and fruitiness that doesn’t taste very pilsish. dry and clean in the end though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasing malt, not as austere as Warsteiner or Jever. Huge hop finish with profound bitterness which goes on for a long time. Good German Pils, but maybe a bit needlessly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy
medium yellow, dense tiny and small particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma
is lightly malty (light bread, cookie), moderately hoppy (herbs,
flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately
bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is heavily bitter, lightly acidic. Light
to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very assertive
bitterness, maybe a bit too much even.
