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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tapped at the brewery in Vienna. Hoppy aroma, almost Pilsner style. Very aromatic in the direction of hops. Color is of copper golden to light golden yellow when falahilighted. Taste is a blend of malt and hops with hops dominating and a nutty like walknuts hoppy finish. Very tasty, very!

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.
