2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2009 Rerate Still rather bland, but the aroma is a tad nicer - not quite as skunky. Original 2.7 Has a typical Saaz hop induced "skunky" aroma. Very light golden appearance, slight lilting head. Flavor first reminds me of Copenhagen snuff. It mellows out after awhile to a typical Pilsener flavor - not quite as sweet as I would like. Slightly bland overall. Finish is slightly metallic. Not the best German pils.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly straightforward German pils. Slightly skunky and straw aroma. Very pale. Light sweetness but mostly dry and very mild fruitiness. Good bittering. Goes a bit watery and the hops hang around a bit too long. Not bad, not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very aromatic, grassy nose. Fluffy whitish head, which lasts and provides some nice lacing. Pale malts which provide just a touch of chewy, light bodied, finishing clean, crisp, dry, and pleasantly bitter. I was expecting the usual super skunk pilsner, and I am pleasantly surprised. As far as pils go Im not a huge fan, but this is quite nice. Darn Germans know what the hell is really goin on.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Straw colored with wispy white head. Very crisp and Saazish with a massive floral aroma. Its notable feature is its dryness and floral tones - which are very noticeable. An enjoyable brew, though not a style I seek out.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 Medium gold color with a modest but long lasting head and a delicate bready and floral aroma. This brew was bigger in body than the aroma suggested, with a soft and dryish malty flavor, and although it wasn't the hoppiest pils I've ever had, the beer seemed in really good shape and had a crisp freshness to it. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
TO be honest, I am surprised that this is rated so low. Granted, its not great but it is very pleasant and easy to drink. The colour is urine yellow with some good bubbles and a thin (very thin) consistant white head. The nose is flowery and crisp. Same goes the flavour. I had it on tap and it just hit the spot.
