4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden colour with foamy lasting, nice lacing white head. With its wonderful grassy full pack of aroma hops revealing nose with a smooth medium bodied malty start, followed by a very dry bitterhoppy longlasting aftertaste, this fine northern style Pilsener is heavy underrated. Very bitter on bottle, it is way better on tap, but almost nowhere to get but in my (new) hometown Bochum in the Ruhr area. Besides the many corporated mainstream brews, I´m quite proud of this lovely private brewery and its exceptional Pilsener beer !

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from some cheap supermarket in Köln. Gold, moderate white head and gentle condition. Gentle graininess initialy in the nose but with some starchiness creeping in (or out) with time. Chalky graininess and low hop in the mouth becoming quite dry and bitter in the finish.

Swing top bottle. Soft hoppy aroma with mint. Firm hopbitter flavor and afteratste, that hardly leaves room for other flavors. Well made pilsener of the Northern German type. Medium bodied.
