3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Dec 2007, thank you Joss (Jonas). Pours nice golden color but not heady. Dry aroma of clean hop. A killer dry hop bitterness pervades the beer. Palate is nice and mellow but slightly sticky. A drinkable pils, dry and bitter. I could have more than one.

On tap in Bochum. Hoppy aroma, bit malty, würzig. Clear, yellow coloured with a white, lasting head. Taste is bit sweet, grassy hoppy. Okay. But with the food I had very heavy on the stomach.

Thanks to Beštak who brought it from Bochum! Pale golden body with a small white head. Pleasant style-typical aroma, herbal hops, vaguely citric and metallic, nice note of honey. Nice dry pils, bready with a good herbal-citric hoppy note, solid bitterness for the style. Slightly eggy. nothing off about it. Silky mouthfeel countered by a good bitter note. A very, very well executed pils!

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.

Pours clear deep golden with a frothy offwhite head that leaves some thick sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and floral with dark bread, cereal, hay, dried flowers, moist soil, minerals and orange peal. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, floral and earthy with bread, cereal, hay, moist soil, minerals and lemon peal. Mouthfeel is crisp, sparkling, slightly dry, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with bread, cereal, hay, moist soil, minerals and lemon peal. Very enjoyable pilsner! Bitter, bready and with just the right amount of earthy floral hops.
