3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle served in a footed pilsner glass. 5.4 abv. Watery pale yellow with medium-sized persistent white head. Light lacing. Slightly sweet aromatic nose of corn and cereal. Slightly sweet flavor as well. Light-medium body, decent carbonation, sticky texture. Dry finish with light hops and a grainy powder. A good example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Good dense, lightly yellow head; well-carbonated golden beer. Again Ge noble hops, if maybe a bit less prominent than in the Helles. Very dry, with a very delicate balance hops - pale malts. Bit aggressive carbonation, light to medium bodied, slick, with a very dry finish. Good Pilsener, which could held its own with any of the Nortern German classics.

2010-10-02. Crisp pale yellow, modest foamy white head. Flavour is surprisingly bitter with a crisp dry grassy bitterness over muted pale malt base. Modest aroma, grassy hints and muted floral hops. 6+ Smooth average palate suits it. Pretty decent! Bottle shared by Radek

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
right from the bottle it is easily one of the best pilseners i have ever enjoyed. simply made according to the German purity law yet, as complex as one could imagine. fruity, spicy, mellow, tart, tangy and with zippy carbonation i ask, what’s not to like! no characteristic is overbearing and the body is moderate and in a word satisfying. bottle reads %5.4 ABV. peppry finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow gold with a small white hea that has fair retention and some lacing. The aroma is mild with corn, cereal grains and some biscuit. The flavor has a respectable hop bite, but is otherwise undistinguished with cereal grains. The palate is light and uneven with prickly carbonation. The finish is short and forgettable. Overall: Not impressed, better than BMC but not by much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale yellow with a small, white head. Aroma of oats, crackers, and grains. Only a touch of aromatic noble hops. The flavor is very dry with oats, crackers and dry, bitter hops. Kind of thin but full flavored. A little spicy. There’s something special about a good German pilsner. This definitely qualifies.
