3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought @ Landbierparadies. Pours tiny hazy yellow with a frothy white head that leaves some sparse lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty and slightly floral with crackers, doughy white bread, hay, dried yellow flowers, minerals, lemon peal and hints of iron. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, slightly malty and floral. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly sparkling, tiny dry, tiny astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with doughy bread, sourdough crackers, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Solid hoppy Pilsner with a rustic bread malt base I kind of adore. Enjoyable!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty (who schlepped several good beers back from Germany). Very fragrant hopping, perfume-like even, with some graininess. Very pale straw color. Light but very tangy fruity initial / grass springs up in mid palate / nice hop tingle in late mid and final. Thin-medium. Very nice flavor changes throughout. Crisp and clean.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fresh bottle from Landbierparadies, consumed in 2012: Crystal-clear pale yellow. Tiny-bubbled pasty white foam. Mineralic, peppery, damp hay aromas. Lightly herbal and grassy with subtle yeast notes. Tight carbonation. Peppery zing of hops harmonizes with a pronounced grassy tang. Malt is quite dry and doesn’t pack a whole lot of texture or depth into the watery body. Quite slippery and melony as well, with no grip from the malt for much-needed contrast. Scarcely a hint of lemony elegance in the center. Finishes wet with vaguely defined damp-hay pils malt and a zesty hop bitterness. Not picking up any glaring defects, but can’t say I’m digging it much. Malt could definitely use some refinement. Very straightforward, like most Frankenpils tends to be.

Draught from the brewpub. It was in a Krug so don’t know what it looked like. Light malty aroma. Flavour is sweet crip pils, a little bitter at the back. Nice on a sunny day under a tree.
