3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Upshot? A medium-dry German pils, with excellent bitterness. Very fresh from Wine of Dreams, bb mid-July 2011. Medium gold solid color, no bright yellowness. Saltine and herby flowers and big grassy aromas are huge here. Very nice. Nice body, nice lacing, good maintained carbonation. Flavor is hugely bready but natural and the alcohol is nowhere to be felt. Moderate-to-heavy bitterness. Doesn’t get too sticky but maybe a little close at the end, yet there is also a well-handled but still watery finish. Yeah, I didn’t like the watery palate at the end of the beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Erzengel. Pale gold, clear, thick white head. Decent lemony hop with some yeast on the aroma too . Just a little bit of metal too. Quite full in the mouth which is pleasant. OK lemon hop on finish and some carbonation sting. Its fine if a little metallic and thin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Consumed at a bar called Mississippi in Bochum, Germany. Nice pour, decent fluffy white head. Lots of grain, crisp bouquet, and some malts on the nose. Taste is citrus with lots of bitter grains, some burnt aspects, and a fare amount of floral and earth tones. Really decent brew and well good for the start of a LOOONG night! :)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow pour with a rocky white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Pretty bland aroma. Hay, chalk, very mild herbal and floral hops. Flavor is a step up. The hops come through a bit more. More herbal than floral. Honey like sweetness. Nice clean bitter finish that lingers. Has some nice qualities, but they don’t seem to come together as well as in the best examples of the style.

Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of pivnizub. A well made pilsener. Effective, good bitterness, hoppy. Probably even better on tap and without having a row with your girlfriend :-( Thanks a lot pivnizub!
