3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy and bitter like a typical German pilsener, with more bite than you would expect in an export Hell. A good-tasting lager that satisfies. Also has one of the artsiest bottlecaps of all the beers out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (many tanks to joss !): Golden, big stable fluffy white head, deep sweet-malty nose with some bitter-aromatic edges in the wings, almost with a honeyish tinge; solid sweet-malty flavour with a distinctive bitterness, soft MF; distinctive sweet-bitter finish, aromatic. A fine well balanced, well crafted brew......

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle: poured golden yellow with a full thick white head that dissipated quickly leaving just a slight layer of white. Not a lot of aroma even after a vigorous swirl. A touch of hops. Flavor is mostly bitter hops, very slight citrus notes and herbs. Finshes dry and bitter. Decent.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cL bottle. Nice aroma of noble hop. There’s also a bit of spice in the air. Dark, brassy gold color with a substantial white head that even left tatters of lace. Soft feel, medium bodied, nearly creamy carbonation. The flavor begins with light malty sweetness accompanied by a decent amount of floral and grassy hop. The finish is not very dry, but there is enough bitter to cover that issue. And the lace turns out to be substantial. Clean, crisp, and mouthsmackingly good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at the Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. Nicely aromatic, floral and lightly spiced herbal hop nose present. Some sweet grassiness is also there. Transparent golden body with a large, frothy white head and nice nice lacing. A bit sweet, malty, and a touch of floral and herbal hoppiness comes into play early on. A bit of roasty malts also make a cameo in the middle. Finish has a bit of a musty flavor with some mildly bitter, dry, spiced hops. A classic rendition of the style. Solid.

Crisp aroma with metallic undertone, flavor is similar with aftertaste of grass and bitter hops. Not very interesting.

Pours gold and slightly cloudy. Has a slightly malty sweet flavor. Nice tall white head that leaves fairly quickly. Very nice aftertaste that leaves you wanting another drink. A pretty decent beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured clear golden with nice white head. Aroma is light with sweet malts, some wheat and cereal. The taste begins sweet and cereal like and then quickly becomes bitter as the hoppiness runs across my tongue.
