3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle. The beer starts sweetish-malty. Smooth, but malty-sweetish. Slightly bitter-dry. The aftertaste is smooth, malty-sweetish, a bit earthy dry. Hints of nuts. Interesting brew, but no Pils!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A simple one with butter and fat making all of its taste. Malty moments with hints of caramel. Drinkable, average piwo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1000ml bottle [Thanx Gunnar!]. Clear, orangey, deep golden to amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Strawy aroma with grassy-herbal-spicy touch, nuttily malty basis. Taste is malty, hints of green hazelnut, mildly hoppy overtones, slightly hoppier finish; soft palate, smooth carbonation. Rather untypical Pilsener with idiosyncratic nuttily malty note.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer pours out of the bottle ( thanks to Culchiem!) in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of straw and hops. Taste of caramel, browned butter, mild hops, leaves and nuts. Easy and nice to drink, enjoyable, but nothing that special,

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, cheers kappldav123! Hazy amber colour, not like the typical pale Pils, large and creamy off-white head, very persistent. Lovely hop aroma with a shy touch of fruit, with an almost Bohemian character. Solid malty base with (very shy) hints of roasted malts, lots of aromatic hops all over the tongue. Shy fruity touch, especially towards the finish. Lingering hop flavours. Smooth palate. A very nice beer, not the typical example of the style, but beautifully crafted.

Bottle at Green week Berlin. Medium amber with a thin head. Aroma is light toast malt. Flavour is quite smoky with a sugary malt base. Palate is long lingering smoke.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1l-bottle bought at a getränkemarkt in Nordhausen. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, not very dry, fine spicy notes. Modest sweet. Finih still mild, a bit spicy-wheaty, quite drinkable. A good one!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle, 100cl, 5.0% abv) Hazy and quite dark for a Pilsener: amber colour with a tanned and short foamy head. Sweet, slightly nutty (cara-)malty aroma with herbal and slightly citric hops. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Nutty cara-malty taste with herbal, slightly woody and subtle fruity hops; moderately bitter and dry finish with a balanced hops and malt-character. Uncommon but likeable. 24.VIII.11

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bügelverschlußflasche (1000ml): Very deep golden to light amber coloured, creamy stable off-white head; mild caramelly-mineralic nose with a fruity-toasty tinge; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; lingering bitter-toasty finish. Unusual Pils.......

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Radiantly orange in colour, and thus quite dark for your typical German Pils. Soft carbonation. Soft sweetness dominates; mild aromas of dried fruit and ripe apples, hints of smoke. Definitely not what I expected. Interesting, though.
