Bottle from McTapps - thank you, Sabine! Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops with sparse malty notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with pronounced notes of yeast. Reasonably bitter finish. A decent Pilsener

Bottle thnx to McTapps, cheers! Pours a clear yellow beer with a light, medium sized white head. Aroma is malty, light skunked and grainy. Flavour is medium bitter with a sweet base and a long, bitter finish, compared to other beers in the style. Quite a decent beer, I’ve had better German lagers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml swing top bottle from ThirstyBird, thanks! Poured into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9%
Clear body, with huge activity going in there. Bright golden yellow colour, two fingers of thick, soapy head that actually gained in size at first, while sitting in the glass. Excellent retention, heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma is quite malty, with stale bread and hay notes.
Malts on the taste too, but they seem to dominate the background mostly. Yp front a nice bitterness is in command, quite intense with long duration too. Some hay also present too, as an aftertaste note.
Very very dry on the palate, good carbonation, medium thin body.
Overall a very tasty and bitter pilsner.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
29/04/2012 500ml bottle, IP trade (thanks Erzengel!). Dorata, limpidissima, schiuma bianca abbondante, con bolle grossolane, abbastanza persistente. Al naso fastidioso sentore metallico, di detersivo, poi pian piano emerge il malto, lievito, pane e luppolo. In bocca è stantia e non in buone condizioni. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione soft rispetto alle attese. Deludente.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to pivnizub for the bottle! Pours clear pale yellow with a nice white head that sticks around for a while. Smell is of crisp, fresh hops - floral. There is also the sweet, light caramel malt backbone. Taste is a nice blend of the sweet malt and nice crisp hops. Wonderfully balanced ending quite crisp, dry and slightly bitter. Body is light and the carbonation is soft and beautiful. I will work this one into my rotation.

Ein Charakter-Pils aus dem Revier; kräftig-würzig mit ausgeprägter, geradezu knackiger Hopfennote. Ein klassisches Pils!
