2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reviewed 12/25/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a lighter straw color with fantastic clarity. The head is a one finger white color with okay retention. Basically, it’s everything you’d expect a decent pilsner to look like.
S: I was really wary when I first popped open the weird pulltab and whiffed a MASSIVE amount of skunk, but in the glass it’s calmed down well. Lots of zesty noble hops with no real malt aroma. Weak in general, but not bad.
T: There’s almost a green pepper flavor that really catches me off guard - yeah, it definitely tastes like bell pepper. Not really a good thing. There’s a bit of grass and sweet malts on the finish, but that off flavor really throws everything off guard.
M: Well carbonated and nicely light - there’s no mouthfeel problems keeping it from going down easy, just the flavors.
O: This...doesn’t work. The pepper character kills what could have been a good pilsner. At the very least, it would pair decently with Mexican food.

Can. Pours light yellow, with a creamy head. Aroma is spicy hops, with sweet floral and citrusy notes, as well as pale malts with grainy notes. Medium body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is sharp hops, with herbal citrus and peppery spices, as well as sweet grainy malts, with bread and honey.

went by the name, had hoped for better, but all together a pedestrian pilsener, lots of cereal notes, could have been more crisp

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5l bottle. Mild, aromatic, tasty, refreshing, drinkable beer with a nice hoppy finish. A real hop-king.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with half a finger of white head. Grass, wheat, grain. Light body with medium carbonation. Short crisp finish. Easy to drink but not interesting

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow with a trace of head, served in sampler. Bland and watery, paired decently with schnitzel but not a beer I would order again. Not a big pilsener fan in general, but this makes me wonder whether the Austrian variety is particularly uninteresting for an American craft beer drinker’s palate.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nettes Piwo mit einer trocken-herben Seele. Hopfigfrisch mit viel Gras im Aroma und einem leicht bitteren Schluss. Angenehm zu trinken und stellenweise sehr erfrischend.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the Interspar in Kufstein. The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and bubble gum. Taste of mild hops, light grass, leaves, light malt, bread. High carbonation. Easy to drink, yet it lacks some character and deepness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Para começar, muito interessante a forma de abrir a garrafa. Não conhecia o sistema.
Mas vamos ao que interessa. O aroma já se manifestou logo após a abertura da garrafa. Bastante intenso e lupulado, algo de refrescante.
O líquido apresentou a característica coloração "loura". E o creme se formou bem, com boa densidade e deixou marcas perfeitas ao longo do copo. Porém não manteve-se perene até o fim.
No mais, um belo amargor, bastante densa ao paladar e bem carbonatada. O retrogosto foi de um amargo saboroso.
Em resumo, uma das melhores pilsners que já tomei.
