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.

Ok, but the other naturklub was better. Tried a small taste of this at the bar down the street from Meridan Pint last week. Tap.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle poured a weak pee yellow liquid with a thin white head.. Subtle aromas and flavors of malt and hops, just the way I like my pilseners.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow with thin white head. Light floral aroma, a smidge of cooked corn- thin. A touch metallic, a tad sour, a little sweet, and some decent Pilsener hops. Light with a longer hop finish than expected. Not really my style but not too bad.

Pours a light yellow color with a big fluffy white head that quickly fades. Aroma is corn and grass, tastes of corn and rice with a slightly bitter vegetal finish.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml green bottle with pull-tap bought at Fürstenberg in Tsuen Wan.
Clear pale dull golden yellow colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Slightly pungent aroma of lager malt, with floral nectar, honey, bread, yeast, lemon and light grassy hops; Light sweet taste of light lager malt, with molasses notes, very light earth, bread, light yeast, light lemon, light bitter hops and very light grass; Light body, dry and watery palate; Mouth feel is somewhere between a macro Pale and a light Pilsener, with fairly light body and thin palate (seems like a trait for most Austrian lagers). Saaz earthyness is light at best. Otherwise some notable bread and fairly lightweight hops. Doh!… Hoppiness is sweet floral nectar, lemon and light grass nose. Very light earth, thin lemon and light hop taste. Bitterness is very low-fi German Pils-like for a faint astringent non-finish; Quite dry after taste. Easy and quite bready to mouth.
Comments: This is typical Austrian brew - thin body but good maltyness, empty taste and light hoppiness. The fragrant floral aroma is its sole saving grace. For traditional German Pils lovers, once is definitely enough.
