2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 330 ml bottle at NY Terps Event, 6/7/12, as Neumarkter Lammsbräu Organic Pilsner
Aroma: The nose is pretty light with yeasty notes, light fruit, and a little bit of hop
Appearance: This one pours into the glass a clear gold color with a small-to-medium white head
Flavor: Tastes fairly light as well, not off, just dull, with some light sweetness, and a hint of bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, but the drinkability is pretty decent, and it has an alright finish as well
The bartender who seemed to think of himself as the bar’s beer expert described this one as "a better Heineken" in what I could only guess was an attempt to sell me on trying it. I wish I was kidding, but I’m not, and I certainly don’t blame him, as he would have had no way of knowing I actually like good beer not Heineken. So anyway, we were not off to a good start there, but I figured I’d judge it for myself. He really wasn’t too wrong. This beer was fine, with no major flaws (unlike Heineken), but it was kind of boring too

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Rob. I feel a little on the fence about rating this beer in this condition, but if someone is going to pay money for a beer that a store let sit on the shelf this long, that a distribution didn’t call back, that a brewery released in a green bottle and shipped over seas, I think they deserve to know that what I drank was skunked worse than warm Rolling Rock. Aroma is a complete skunk. Flavors are washed out and rubbery. Clean finish, but light struck.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours transparent golden with a thick, lacy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted light malts, a little bit of nuts and caramel, and some light hops. Flavor about the same. A little light. Nothing that special, but it’s cool that it’s organic.

Malty aroma with hop notes. Golden color, creamy head with good lace. Flavor is malty and very grainy. Spicy hop notes and a light bitter aftertaste. More malt than hop flavor, but really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp and hoppy pils, grassy and clean. Pours light gold with a fizzy white head. Pretty decent pils, some apple/pear flavor towards the end and a light skunkiness that I didn’t care for, but very crisp and refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a fairly thick white head on it. Nose is nicely present, with a lot of stronger corn elements and just a bit of grains in there. Taste is actually a little bitter, which was a nice surprise, with a nice crisp bite to it. Actually pretty decent.
