4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 12/14/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass; beautiful appearance. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a lot of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, pepper, grass, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nicely balanced hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an excellent pilsner style! All around great balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 16.9 pt bottle. Slightly cloudy brew with denser white head, good lacing. Aroma of grass, green fruit, a little mineral. Very dry at the start, bitter grass then a slight emergence of sweeter malts before a hoppy finish - grass, green fruit, tart and bitter. Dry and crisp. A fine brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from the brewery in Germany. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma is classic pilsner; nutty, with menthol and sugar sweetness as the southern Pils are.. The flavor is nuts with the same sweetness from the aroma. The palate is light with average carbonation and spicy and lightly bitter finish.

Bottle at Wachi. Nice malty nose, light grassy hop, bready. Golden and pretty. Malty, bready flavor, rich and nice, ok hopping, very balanced though could be a bit more bitter. Generally very nice and drinkable. Want to try it on tap.
