3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, BBE 03/2010) Clear yellow-golden with a smallish, bubbly head. Quite malty and buttery aroma with light grassy hoppiness and a touch of metal. Flavor is herby-piney-hoppy, surprisingly dry and bitter, but still with reasonable backing maltiness. Almost medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation. A quite sharp, but well-made and hoppy pils.

Not great, I’ve had it on draught and it was a hell of a lot better, not as bitter as it should have been and the colour wasn’t very bright, left a bit of a biscuity taste on the palate too.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours greenish yellow with a very unstable, foamy head. Light, spicy hops aroma with an iron tang that gives a urine-like character - not good. Lean, crisp body with a minimal herbal to spicy flavour and a dry, pronounced bitterness. I don’t mind that this is watery, but it’s not particularly pleasant. The hops are not aromatic enough and everything is kept really shy... Still, the bottle looks nice.

Bottle 50 cl labelled as Rothaus Pils. Pours a clear light yellow with a big and partly gading white head and an aroma of cookie dough, white bread, herbs and hop. The taste is fresh, with notes of herbs, some hops, sweet malts and metal. An enjoyable hoppy finish. Nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
secondo me una tra le più buone Pils tedesche.
birra di un bel colore biondo paglierino,e dal sapore piacevolmente amarognolo.Se servita bene,ha anche una schiuma bella compatta e persistente.

I drink it on tap. Pale yellow body. Malty and hoppy aroma. Light and bitter palate. A good german pils but not one of my favourite.
