2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Rated on 28.11.2013. Thanks S & N!
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grass, some bread and sweetness. Flavour of grainy malts, some minerals, mild yeastiness and grass. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a short bitter, a bit malty finish. Unfiltered, but not enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy pilsener appearance. It is a sweeter pilsener, with a nice dryness, herbal hops, nothing too intense.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. hazy unfiltered yellow-tan. Lots of active rising carbonation bubbles lead to a fluffy white head. Fresh, enjoyable aroma. Comes off fresher, more enjoyable than most German beers I buy..first time I’ve seen this on the shelves. Dry, grassy, zesty noble hop tones balance out the earthy, almost wheat touched malt body. Pretty much a great Lager, something my palate is hungry for. Medium bodied, very sessionable, but with some depth. Well done, I’d buy it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops with sparse malty notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of yeast. Cardboardlike finish. OK but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Misty yellow golden body with stable large white head, excellently looking.Pale quality malts, white bread, light herbal, bit wheaty and cheesy yeast. Fairly bitter beer with a prominent clean yeast chracter and a fairly harsh malt base, however not devoid of character. Perhaps too grainy, and within the style certainly not the smoothest, but you know: if mass produced every lager would taste like this small brewery’s effort, the world be a better place. Quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl swing top bottle in a summer night, 5%, 1,60€. Yellow color, a little hazed (halfway between a weak weizen and a filtered one) nice white head. Quiet nose, fresh. Aroma is moderately malty with, bready, classic German pilsener taste. The bit of yeast in suspension lmakes it round and fluffy. Tasty too. Body is medium in the style. Taste is sweetish in the beginning, then finish has a soft bitterness. Finish is a bit sticky. Low carbonation. I’d say this is a good one, reminds me of hacker pschorr braumeister pils with less bang. Interesting keller/zwick’l-pilsener.

500ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn) - thanks Marduk!
Really nice light bready grains, full and unfiltered. Initially a very papery taste, and then tons and tons of almonds, at least for phil. Alas now I’ve tasted it, I can smell some walpaper paste and paperiness. Nice smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Late finish is packed full of hops, seared pork flesh fattiness. Anna gets honey at the end. A real shame about the paperiness, without this it would be great. Asked for a top-up from Anna. Has my salivary glands working overtime it’s do dry.
