2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 330ml bottle (BeerAngel.de)
Pale yellow, brief head. Slightly papery hop aroma. Pleasant carbonation, decent light malty/bready palate, a touch thin, but what you’d expect from a quaffing beer. Some pine and ginger retronasally. On swallowing, there’s a lovely crisp almost resiny hoppy finish. Tangy and refreshing, a classic quality german pils.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was recommended by the brilliant proprieter of Bierland in Hamburg as a good pils (which she added are hard to make!). Although it looks clear and almost lemonade yellow, and the first sip is a bit light, but the hops are florid and get more gothic the longer you savor. I had been getting in Jever as about the only pils worth bothering with, but this one i(and it is a very fresh bottle) is super pleasurable with its robust hops on it’s clean, delicate frame.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a rock solid pils. The #1 choice of college students in Stuttgart (at least at all the parties I ever went to)
Nice pils head, strong herbal finish. I found mine to feel a bit thin. Not malty enough for my tastes, but it is a pils after all. Hops are the star.
Not spectacular, but certainly destroys all the "college" beers I’ve ever had before.

(Bottle on 2009-02-06) Golden and clear. Medium sized fizzy head that doesn’t disappear immediately. Grassy hops aroma. Medium bodied and dry palate with quite a lot of carbonation. Hops, bitterness, grass, fruitiness, hint of butter and bread in taste. Grassy and bitter aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pale and lively brew with soft, thick bready aromas. It has a tickly flour flavour that comes across as yeasty and wholesome. Thick and sweet in the mouth. Very, very tasty.
