3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Dortmunder: thanks! Soapy and somewhat flowery aroma with just a touch of hops. Medium to full bodied. Malt, cologne, vanilla. A fair deal of hopbitterness. Boiled milk. Hints of licorice. Disappointing aroma, but the flavor is quite OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral hops aroma, with notes of maltiness and skunkiness. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, with hints of honey. Body is too watery though. What started good, became bad in the end. Not enough hoppiness for a Pilsener.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I have to agree with Yogi_beera, there are definetly some skunky notes, and the bottles I have have never seen a shop from the inside as they come directly from the brewery. I seem to have no luck with beers from this brewery - or they have no luck in quality control, in either case I rate it as it is, if the last bottle is better i can always re-rate.
