2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 91. This bottled brew poured a medium head of frothy large sized white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of malt corn and was off. Its mouth feel is smooth and flat with a malty finish. Its flavor contained malty hoppy notes that favored the hops.

In the bottle. Purchased at the DB hofbanhaus in Mannheim. This bottle (0.5L) was also simply labeled "Pils." Light yellow and clear color (no cloudiness). Delicious sweet malt body coupled with a great pilsner bitterness. Nice pronounced aroma of yeast and maybe hay (!). Great german pilsner in a tough and competitive market.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2007 A very good German pilsener from a state-owned brewery in the Black Forest. The version I had was simply labelled "Pils" and the website shows two different beers - the Pils and the Tannenzapfle Pils - so I’m not quite sure why they are regarded as the same beer on the site. Slightly hazy (although this seems to have been a chill haze) straw colour - pale for a pilsener. Frothy head. Soft malt aroma with a lemon edge. The flavour is quite hoppy, with a hint of vanilla. Quite dry, with a moderately tart, bittersweet finish. Nicely thirst-quenching. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 11 August 2004.

Very special aroma of herbs, straw and orange shells. Flavour of sweet and bitter pumpkin... Quite interesting pilsener!
