3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a friend’s house. Brewed at the highest-altitude brewery in Germany. Nothing much to see or smell here, the attraction is the bitter hoppiness that leaves you thirsty for more. Very pale straw color, clear, active bubbles but thin head. Slightly nutty aroma, some nut in hoppy flavor with very buzzy, carbonated mouthfeel. Very dry and bitter toward the end and afterward. Definitely give it a spin if you like pilseners. Nice for washing down some maultaschen.

Poured a golden amber to clear with a thick white head. The smell was a sweet flower grain aroma. The flavor was a rich malt with a bitter metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cristal clear yellow beer with a slight greenishness in the color and with a quick disappearing white head. The smell is dry, pilsmalty and herby hoppy with nice flowery accent. The taste is quite strong for the style. It is light to medium boddied with a good extraction of the pale malts and good bitteres of green harvested hops. The afthertaste is refresching bitter and clean.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 <ii>Bottled.
Much yellow pale color, little fizzy, nearly watery. Light and compact head, short duration. Rather inconsistent scent with light straw, cereals and dampen hay aromas. Medium pungent taste, watery, extinguished and not particularly lively. Modest scents and aromas. Pleasant bitter, but is too much little in order to save it.

I have tasted this one in Gengenbach-Germany, with a pizza. For a pils, too much bitter, but I like it. Appearance clear.

Bottled. Pale yellow. Clear. Dense white head. Herbal, sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is quite herbal and flowery. Is light bodied. Light bitter in the end. Is easy to drink but overall too bland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a clear pale yellow with lots of fizzy bubbles. Aroma is the typical Saaz hoppy czech pilsner. Flavor is mild cereal, light grains a bit vegetable-ish and that sweet-bitter that the style often presents. Very thin and light on the pallete. Slight lingering bite.
