3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 oz bottle, pils glass, 52 degrees. Average, white, fizzy head diminishes quickly and sits on a pale yellowgrain body that is slightly hazy with vigorous carbonation. Toasted light bread and grain malt (mod); perfume, grass hops (mod); doughy yeast (light). My overall impression is that the aroma is crisp, light, and clean. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Efficient toasted grain malt backs up spicey, citric saaz hops. Watery texture, fizzy cabonation, medium-light body. The bottom line is: a tasty pilsner, but a bit expensive for what it is.

A little haze - unfiltered? Quite bright yeelow, frothy, not very tight head. Great aroma (saazy?), very light mouthfeel, only a trace of malt sweetness, pretty well balanced - ultimately, I think it is well made but not challenging at all. Touch of corniness unfortunately. Yes, a bitter finish, but good to my taste.

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

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.
