Golden color wtih a great head. A bit watery and too carbonated, slightly bitter. Very ordinary lager...

Bottle consumed at Groove Sation in Dresden, Germany. This is kind of typical gass station canßbooze. Well, replace kind of with IS. Grass and corn. Some lemon here and there and some bitter hints. Promptly carbed, but rather dull in charachter. Just kind of sat there and needless to say, I dont think I finished half of it. I am pilsnerd-lagerd out haha.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 Bottled. Ultra-clear yellow pour, looks filtered, rocky white head with decent lacing. Grassy, grainy aroma. Thin thin liquid. Nice shot of bitterness! A twist of citrus there. A longer aftertaste than expected, pleasant bitterness. Good with food. So, the question remains: why isn’t this a pilsner? Update: Comments hold, but score gains a point. Really a good baseline for judging other German beers.

Bottle from Wild Oats, Hinsdale, IL. An odd choice for my first rating of 2006, but this is what I felt like, and ya don’t fight the feelin.’ So, the quest continues for a decent, representaive German lager that stands up to importing. Light gold in color, with a stiff white head. Initially, there’s a decent German beer smell, but it gets overtaken by some kind of ruibbery nose. malt character is a little hard to find,, just a kind of graininess and some adjunct, There is a bit of spicy, even peppery, hop to it, if you want to look, but also a bit of that strange plastic "Miller" taste that sends it up or down in my estimation each time I taste it. Worth having had, and at least a pale lager with some character to it. Wonder if it might taste better closer to its home.

The usual yellow with white head. A resounding thump of bitterness from this one. A pleasant surprise.

Bottle from Radeberg. Pours beautifully. Light golden color with a thick white head. Very mild aroma. Slightly spicy flavor with a moderate bitter taste. Enjoyable.

bottle from Saarlander, thanks Aaron. very pale yellow gold with a nice sized white head settling down to decent lace. mild floral aroma with a very mild flavor of malt and hops. drinkable for the style, but nothing special.

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2005
Not quite golden, clear body with a medium size white head. Aroma came across slightly grainy and a little soapy. Taste has pleasant bitterness with a hint of corn and oily grapefruit hops. Simple but decent enough to drink.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2005
The Lure:
A lingering head shrouds the mild fruitiness and dormant haystack. Cereal sweetness eventually surfaces, but nothing here makes me want to take the plunge.

The Festivities:
Toasted malt flavors dwell in a crisp body which seems to lack some girth. Or maybe the carbonation is too important for my tastes. Either way, a partial flavor void is created, as delicate grassy hops and their wooden bitterness build in the last half, attracting dryness. An easy pint to down.

Transcendence:
Burp.

Fukito (752) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 3, 2005
500 Cm3 bottle - December 2005 Pours light golden with a big frothy head, that diminishes to a fine size. Aroma is grainy and malty, which is Ok. Taste is bittersweet, gentle but not watery. Afterstaste is short but pleasant. Nothing remarkable, but not bad neither.
