3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with a huge foamy head. Aroma is faint but of pale malts. Taste is more malty and seems closer to a helles than a pilsner. Either way decent beer, but doesn’t really stand out in any way.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer 42 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/6/06 at my hotel’s bar (Fleming’s Hotel Bar) in Frankfurt. Draft inot a .3L glass. Although this is not a fantastic beer it was really nice having it in this instance. It was a rainy night, I was havingthis beer with some chocolate mouse, while listening to some covers on the stereo. Bitter is my overall impression.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Quite dry but not too bitter. I don’t really know what to make of this beer, didn’t really taste like anything while I had it. I may have to try another one to make up my mind. So far not my choice of german pils. Edit: This is better than I first rated, but it’s not the tastiest of pilseners. (Original score 2.3).

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 500 mL can: Typical of many European pilsners at LCBO all indistinguishable from one another. Would I rush out & buy this again? Not likely. Would I turn this down? No, it has its stengths. Typical pils - very light golden colour, quickly vanishing white head. Tastes a little too thin & sour but nice malts really round out the finish, whiich was unexpected. I don’t love pilsners, but this had something good about it.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear shiny gold color. Head is big, frothy white with good retention. It leaves a medium lacing.
Aroma is hoppy with notes of grass, flowers, fresh herbs, mint and some cedar with a little of citrus. Very fresh and nice.
Flavor is soft but with high hoppy presence. It has medium bitterness with lemony and slightly metallic hints. It ends with some astringency, but it’s light and refreshing.
Pretty watery texture, high carbonation. Rather smooth with the alcohol unnoticeable. Thin to medium body. This bottle had a good lager, but nothing more in it. Probably not in the best shape.
Bought in my trip to Mendoza, Argentina

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a sickly yellow (ever-so-slightly green). White foamy head and big suds.
The smell is barely there... I had to strain to detect a bit of grainy malt, some apple cider, and an unsual solvent aroma.
The mouthfeel is on par with carbonated water. Nothing to write home about, nothing to get upset about.
The taste is astringent and bitter, a pilsner through and through, with the bitterness overpowering initial attempts to decipher the taste. A bit of honey can be noticed, along with a citrus tang in the aftertaste. Other than that, hops and bitter, baby, hops and bitter.
In general, not a good German Pils. Poor King Frederick August III of Saxony, I hope he had better drinks than this to console his abdicating soul...
