3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
The piquant hoppiness of this most healthy unfiltered Pilsener drives its spicines into the chewy straw of the base malts to create a pillowy and flavorful quencher not unlike its Franconian cousins.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam bobs atop the cloudy blond.
-The nose is draped in herbal hoppiness, yet it is quieter than the flavor profile.
-Their Helles has better malt character (to my tastebuds), but their bodies are very similar.
-The spicy hop bitterness pleasantly lingers.
On tap at the brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Salm. Cloudy golden with good white head. Not a lot of aroma, somewhat hoppy. Palate is medium bodied but dominated by an unusually creamy carbonation. Light malty bready start gives way to good long lasting bitter finish. A nice Pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Preferred this one to their helles. Color was a slightly cloudy gold with a foamy head. Aroma was wheaty, yeasty and earthy. Flavor was bready, yeasty and earthy as well, with some herbal elements. A well done version of the style for me.
