3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 On-site pitchers 2012, growlers2013, 5L minikeg2014. Yes, I do love this typical SW unfiltered Pilsner a whole lot more than its lazy tourist trap origin... Reasons: pours murkier than a Zwickl, like a green straw protein shake. Fresh aroma, citrus, proteins and some Tettnang. Taste is a paean to zesty Tettnang and unfiltered rich pale malts, gong down on a richly smooth palate. Sweet and suave almond pale malt notes throughout. Extra points for remaining under 5%, and with that one of the SouthWest’s prime sessioners, with quite some natural hop character.
- note to Freiburg visitors: always up to get this as draught growler or come join in the MON pitcher fun at the source...

Leicht hopfiger, sehr herber und leicht bitterer Antrunk. Frisch, die Bitterkeit steigt leicht, das Bier schmeckt frisch und angenehm getreidig, zum Ende auch hefig. Bitterer Nachhall. Sehr gut, wenn auch ungewohnt nordisch. 11/12/11/12//12

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.3 Litre, in a tall glass in the BrewPub on 11th Sep 2013.
Pale golden and cloudy with a full white head.
Almost odourless, with mild hints of yeast and citrus notes.
Refreshing, but bland, yeasty feel to the whole tasting with a dry finish: a typical German BrewPub pils with nothing to make me want another.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy, golden colour with a darker tint. Frothy, white head. Light fruity aroma with a citrus note - quite unusual for a German pilsener - then grass, pale malts and herbal, floral hops. Taste is bitter. Light to medium body with a thinner texture and a lively carbonation, almost fizzy - which adds to the freshness and crispness of this pilsener. Finishes bitter and dry with citrus and hay. Very refreshing, that just hit the spot this warm summer evening in Freiburg.
