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.

Bottled. Clear golden colured with a rather large dense white head. Very well balanced with notes of straw, grain, bread, caramel and a somewhat dry and hoppy finish. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Süßer und hopfiger Geruch. Aromatisch-süßer Start, dessen Niveau sich durchzieht bis in den Ausklang. Hier dann ein wenig herber. Untypisches und eher süßes Pils. Trotzdem ganz nett, irgendwie.Test vom 11.1.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This came from a green glass bottle. Poured with a small, fine head that slowly faded and a little lace. Color is a very slightly hazy yellow and has some small bubble trails. Aroma is grain, malt, a little hop. Flavor shallow, with noticable bite on the tongue from the carbonation, a little underlying malt sweetness and only a hint of hop. Smells better than tastes. Body is ok, carbonation a bit sharp. Finish is like flavor and has some length. Also, surprisingly, a bit of alcohol warmth. Nothing special; better than macro and nice that it’s organic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a faintly chill hazed light golden color with a huge fluffy white head that persists well. .From a green bottle smelled a bit of skunk and sulfur when first opened, but really aired out well. Caramelized melanoid bready pilsner malt with a hint of spicy floral hops make for a wonderful lager aroma. The flavor is sweet sugary bready malty goodness with faint balancing hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet watery mouthfeel. This is a pretty damn good pilsner. Light clean simple flavorful refreshing, I may buy more of this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle found somewhere in Paris. Pours a perfect bright yellow, excellent head, but could be just a little more solid for a perfect score. Aroma of hops, not overpowering, but enough. Taste is a smooth pilsner, plenty of hops but again not too excessive, smooth finish. Watery aftertaste, no bitterness. Very drinkable, well engineered.
