NOt really a very special beer, but was nice and never annoying. Good foam and good taste, very hoppy too.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Golden colour, medium thick head. Rich, grainy with a good taste of hops sligthly taste of bitterness, especially at the end. Exactly what I expect from a good, bitter pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color, small head formed of tiny bubbles, fairly good carbonation. Aroma of fresh grains and hay, typical pislner aroma. Some sweetness balanced by a fairly good amount of hops, as for european standards. What I preferred was its finish, crisp, dry and sustained.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Clear golden yellow with a medium white head. Grassy aroma. Grassy and herbal taste (straw/hay) with some faint vegetables notes (rhubarb?). Nice balance between the crisp malts and pilsner-ish hops. Mild-medium bitterness. Refreshing. Good example of what I’ve come to define as a “typical German macro”, not great but twice as good as north-american macros. Tough-looking big gold-on-black can, looks like a brother from L.A. South-Central, tastes like a suburb salesman.

Drank this one at Wartburg Castle at Eisenach, Germany. From a bottle. Golden yellow wtih a medium white head. Not a lot of anything here. Everything seemed muted down making it a blt bland. This was a very average pils compared to some of the wonderful ones I had seen up to this point on my German beer tasting expedition.
I found this again at a hotel south of Dresden. This time it came on draft. Much better than the bottle. Need to update my rating.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Re rating: Pale golden body with a white head. Light aroma of pale malt with a hint of grassy and floral hops. Flavor is light malty, some fruitiness and discrete bitterness. Quite average pilsner flavor actually and not bad at all. But not very exiting either.
500ml can. Pale golden color with thin white head. A relatively neutral pilsner with a fear mix of harmonic sweet malt profile and hop character. Spoilt a bit from a long lasting metallic aftertaste.

500ml can from la SAQ. Pale yellow, no head. Aroma is grsssy and herbal. Taste is pretty bitter for a pils with herbal notes, pretty harsh. Thin to medium body.
