3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (lemon oil, lemon cleaner, flowers, resin).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation.
Rather one-dimensional nose, huge dose of lemon oily hops, which even have some west coast US floor cleaner character. Gets a bit tiring quickly, but fairly clean and enjoyable. More bitter than the 42 IBU might make you think, and blinded I would honestly think this was made in the States. India Pale Lager, anyone? One of the more unusual breweries in Franconia...this and Smokey George seem to be aimed more at American beer geeks than Germans.

Nicht, aber auch wirklich nichts an diesem Piwo war in irgendeinem Maße besonders. Ein bisschen Hopfen, leicht Bitterkeit, etwas Heu und eine milde Getreidigkeit. Kriege ich auch bei Krombacher. Nix Aromahopfen und sone Sachen - ein Pils wie jedes andere auch.

Bottle brought home from Bamberg trip. The beer has got a clear golden colour with a steady head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits. Taste of bitter hops, citrus fruits, grass and grains. Typical Pilsner with some hoppier elements. Good and easy drinkable, yet I expected it better.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear yellow color, nice, medium lasting head. Aroma is grassy hop, fresh wood and a bit grain. Taste is light sweet, and very nice bitter. Light to medium body, balanced carbonation, with a astringent finish. Aftertaste is a nice grainy tone, with a long lasting bitterness, which is in no way unpleasant.
Probably the best Pilsener I´ve ever drank, deserves imho the name Aromapilsener.
