0,5 l bottle. Not really clear but golden in the glass. Small white head. Grainy and a light herb sourness and pine needles on the nose. Starts mid grainy herb, light bitterness followed. Hints of citrus, relative long aftertaste with pleasant bitterness. Nice Pilsener. Thanks to kappldav123 for that bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Fresh bottle at the brewery in Lohndorf. Best by June 2014. Clear pale gold with slow-crawling bubbles. Rich body with lively effervescence, rich sourdough baguette pilsner malt, very clean. Grassy and lemon-tinged hops provide quenching, salivating acidity. Rich and creamy and filling natural-like carbonation. Enjoyable dryness with expressive herbal / floral hops in the finish. Well-made pilsner in good shape.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a light note of soap.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Not a great example...some nice characters: bright and balanced, lasting head, and velvety texture...but also a bit soapy and husky. Very fresh bottle but of course that never guarantees quality brewing.
