3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gorgeous pour from bottle. A clear golden straw color with plenty of fluffy, creamy head. Aroma of toasted grain, cereal, mild citrus, and a bit of a spicy hop. Taste of sweet malt, light fruit, and some herbal hop on the end. Very light and refreshing, but lacking on the crisp finish that I expect from a great German pils. I do really like this beer, but I might grab some other pilseners first.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lemony yellow in glass. Mild haze. Good white hear. Grass, light a grain and some pepper on the nose. Fairly basic. Very clean flavor. Resinous. Some bitterness at the end. Quick hits of sweet-ish malts in the middle. Very classic pils tastes. More flavorful than the tame nose suggests. Lively carbonation. Enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle, Edeka Mohr, Bonn 02/2014. Bb 06/2014. Another Bioland-certified product from Pinkus, straight to all bio supermarkets in the EU (6-multilingual label). Pours a grassy yellow with white head, not much of a nose besides pale maltiness. Very thin-bodied, flushing any natural hops that may be there straight through, leaving a pleasant dry (white) breadiness with a too decent for its own good hop prickle behind. Fair to say Pinkus with its Bioland range aimes to please Eco label fetishists more than palates.

Mild lemon nose. Hazy golden, thick head. Light malt, grassy finish, metallic throughout. Light body, soft carbonation. Solid pilsner, way better than the PBR I had to resort to last night.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear light yellow color with a white head. The smell is light sweet malt, grain, grassy hops. The taste is as it smells though with an initial metallic element that fades away after a few seconds. The beer finished dry and slightly bitter. Light in body with decent carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Malty, with a little bit of pale hop. The aroma is basic, but large.
Appearance: Oddly enough, it’s slightly hazy. Bright yellow body, no head. No lacing.
Taste: Malt-forward. A bit of piney hop. Decent enough stuff, a little bit more bitter than your average pils.
Palate: Light body, not watery at all. Moderate prickly carbonation, short+ length on the finish, and ends on pale hops.
Overall: Strange. Hazy like a hefe, bitterness like a light ale, body like a pilsener. It’s tasty enough, but it’s odd.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Called Pinkus Ur-Pils, from "the world’s first organic brewery." (Oh, really?) Pleasant light grain and floral aroma. It tastes of healthy breakfast cereal with a sprig of hops and a dash of yeast. It is better than average for a pilsener, that is for certain.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate light bread, grain and hay for the malt, light herbs and a hint of lemon zest for the hops, faint dough for the yeast, with a hint of paper in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, light yellow with some tiny particles. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, slippery with a lively carbonation. Definitely a classic Pilsener, all the right attributes in the right places.
