2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottles, repeatedly: The allround "Allnatura" organic/green/eco pilsner in the SW (Stuttgart, Freiburg). Fresh bavarian pilsner with quality organic ingredients used, though in rather modest doses, not to offend anyone. Fine-pored lacing and head. Overall thin but refreshing. Good malt quality (almond dryness, cf Ayinger) and present hop (grassy) bitterness dominate. Dry palate, yet watery texture = thirst quenching. Some muffled, hard to define aromas and taste notes in the mix (cardboard effect).

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a fluted pilsner glass. Pours a clear, straw yellow with creamy, two finger head. Good lacing. Scents of sweet malts and mild herbal hops. Balanced flavors, starting with moderate bready malts followed by a lemon zesty bitterness. Mineral notes are also present. Light bodied, good crisp carbonation, finishing dry with some residual hop bitterness. A crisp, refreshing pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt notes of light bread and grain, moderate grass for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with a hint of wood in the background. Head is average to large, frothy, white with good yet slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy pale yellow. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, dry with a fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Good aroma and simple flavors from this Classic German Pilsener. A nice easy drinker and very true to the style.

Smells a bit sweet. Corn and wheat. Sweet and mild grains. Tastes actually better and better as I drink it. Not great but alright. Decent for a whatever pilsner.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Clean and fresh Noble hops accentuate this excellent session beer. This beer pours a nice frothy head, and releases a pleasing Noble aroma with just a subtle hint of malt. The finish is slightly spicy, and almost a touch lemony, but it is quite smooth nonetheless. Pleasantly grassy and straw make up the middle notes. I re-rated this fine beer after having it most weekends this summer. It is THE best pilsner I have ever had. Just excellent and fresh and perfectly brewed. Just an outstanding pilsner and THE one that American micros should strive to duplicate. One of my all-time three favorite beers.
