3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is very hoppy, but also contains notes of straw. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy, and again with notes of straw, leading to a dry hoppy end. Nice.

Bottle. Medium white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, fine-large sized bubbles, fair lacing, softly carbonated, hazy, and a pale yellow hue. Malty, grassy, sweet, and slight note of honey. Flavor was lightly bitter and hoppy. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body.

10 ounce draft at American Flatbread, Burlington. Translucent, luminous gold, big head with no stability...faintest grassy nose, bit of caramel shows up late...fairly hoppy, tingly dry body, bits of sugary sweetness under the surface, malt rather restrained...ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow color, with slight haze, adorned with a fine, thick, bone-white head. Nose is soft & sweet, malty, light as a cloud, with distant floral, honey notes.
Clean entry on the tongue, sweet, pleasing and mild. Light body, delicate texture, thoroughly malty, and very, very smooth
Nearly no hops at all, but this is a German pils, and if you want something nice’n’easy, you can’t miss here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Flowery malt aroma. Yellow-tan color with quicly collapsing head. Nice flowery malt flavor as well with moderate hops finish. I like the flowery notes in this beer - makes it very unique among German Pilseners - a very nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. How to rate this? Why is this rated so low? as a homebrewer, this is close to what I would like a pils to be. And if you are looking for a pils, I would recommend this one. But nonetheless....Pours clear pale yellow with floaties, and a rich, rocky white lasting head. Aroma has hops, a touch of sulfur, and a malty note. Flaor is rich and malty, with a rather gentle hoppiness. A llittle less hops than I would prefer, but still tasty as far as a pils goes. Very drinkable, and I could make an afternoon drinking session with this.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Bottle from Whole Foods, Chicago, date stamped May, 2004. A pretty likeable after sampling their unfiltered lager two days before. Pour the familiar frothy lager-head (nyuk!). Color is pale straw, of course. The malt gives up very little character, per style. Hops are more sharp and spicy, and only at the end do they show a hint of Pilsener character. A bit gassy, too. Not much more than a well presented example of a bland style.
