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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale golden pour with a sticky white head. Nose is light and fairly spicy. A kiss of straw/grassy malts and a light herbal nose. The hoppiness is quite light. A little bit minerally with a bit of herbal spiciness on the nose. Lots of clean, crackery malts. Very, very dry with a lingering light minerally dryness. More crisp pils malt and very clean bitterness. I really like this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pale clear yellow gold with a dense white film. Clean, biscuity pils aroma with a crackery fresh dryness and a grassy herbal noble hop note. Very nice. Crisp quenching feel with a firm pils malt presence in the flavor- Crackery, dry and lean pils presence with a great flowery/peppery noble hop bitterness on the back making it dangerously drinkable. An awesome German pils that I can drink all day. Very underrated.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
pale straw, fizzy dissipating white head.
clean, crisp, bright aroma, mild hops. flavor is a bit muddled, not as crisp and refreshing as it should be, though extremely dry finish. light all around, and kinda bland. lemony and grainy flavor. i dont know, this isn’t good.

Bottle; well past its prime. The store shouldn’t have been selling it, and it didn’t dawn on me to check. Anyways, poured a dull, clear gold color with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grass and bread. Not an overly strong aroma. Flavor of bread and biscuits, with a grassy and slightly peppery finish. Not great, but better than expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Best By 06.07.09’ (July 6, 09), and 5.4% alc. on the label, poured a clear straw gold into the glass, initially, had a white foamy head that was one to two fingers thick then it collapsed to sparse cover and ring, effervescence that stayed for the ride, that was good (we all hate a beer whose bubbles that have pooped out, don’t we). I saw some floaties in the glass, nothing to worry about, left average lacing on the glass, faint aromas of grass and flowers, pilsner and bread/biscuit aromas, a touch of citrus on the nose, light flavors of Pilsner Malt, bread and grain, this beer has a good bitterness before and after the drink, and a bitterness on the palate after the finish, very little sweetness in this drink, light mouth feel with a crispness on the lips, a nice beer.
