3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, Berlin. Very pale gold, nice clean white cap with good stick. Fresh herbal hops (oregeno), just a touch of tart/bile yeast character. Chalky, herbal hop bite, nice bright peppery carbonation. A pleasant hay quality to the bitterness. Fresh, refreshing, good.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a crystal clear straw gold color, with a thick, foamy, pearly white head. Grainy, corny aroma, with just the slightest mild hop presence. Overall, extremely mild. The taste was much the same, except the taste had an unpleasant bitterness to it as well. Grainy, corny, although it has a little touch of some sweetness to it as well. Wasnt terrible, but certainly not exciting, but I guess I wasnt expecting that from this brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. A clear, maybe a bit pale golden pilsner with a nice, white head. The aroma is quite clean and hoppy, with some fruityness and grass. Lightly grainy flavor, with fruits and hoppy bitterness as well. Medium, quite gassy mouthfeel. Grassy, slightly grainy finish with a nice hoppyness. A clean, german pilsner, but the flavor isn’t as nice as the aroma, even though there’s not much difference. The aroma is borderline 6, but not there yet. (070801)

Pours a golden yellow colour with medium white head. Aroma of hops, grassy and hints of clove. Initial taste of simple malts and hops that are crisp. Nothing complex but a drinkable pilsener. Light body and finishes some what dry. Some head retention and lacing of the glass.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Pours golden with a good white head. Classic pilsner aroma and taste. Dry at first and then the warmth and sweetness of the alcohol comes through. Good finish - not bad overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 Bottled 50cl. It pours a clear pale yellow beer with a nicely remaining, fairly big white head. Lots of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The nose is of hay, hops and a hint of pineapple. The taste is bready, biscuity and rather herbal. A nice beer with a good hop character. Slightly flat with a metallic touch. A bit oily. The finish is dry biscuity.

Fluffy head. Very light yellow. Nice fragrance of classic pilsener. Fullbodied flavor and a very long lasting bitter aroma. One of the best pilseners I’ve tried.

12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Pours bright clear pale yellow. Faint hoppy aroma. Faint light malty taste with clean dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Pretty good for a regular German pilsner.

Pours clear, yellow. Minor, fine head. Aroma is grassy and mildly skunky. Mouth feel is thin. Flavor is sweet and grassy with a strong bitter hop quality. The bitter hops just stick in your mouth! God! Get them out! Someone please! Get them out!
