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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half Liter Swing Top Bottle from Germany. Overall, a solid pilsener with a ton of flavor. The weak point was the scent, which was a very faint grain. Hazy yellow pour with a foamy white head. A medium/light body with a frothy feel. Pilsener flavor through and through! Big grain taste, potent.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 New rating (March 9, 2014): This beer is different than what I remember the first time I had it. The beer I had last night was very malty-- more like a Czech pilsner than a German one-- and not crisp at all. Nose was maple malts. The head was sometimes very decent with excellent foamy lacing, and sometimes it dissipated quickly (I had 3 bottles). The wheat and straw overtones were very noticeable. Still a very light body like before, with a watery finish. Does not hold up to food. Still a decent pilsner in my book, and way better than any American Pils I have tried.
June 2, 2013 (original rating): Hazy and light straw colored. Rich and tasty Noble/Saaz hops that let you know you are drinking a fine German pilsner. Very clean and smooth finish, almost unusually so. I don’t understand the many comments stating this doesn’t taste like a pilsner. Actually it does, but a very light one. What we have here is the fresh and flavorful hop profile of a fine Bavarian pilsner with the clean and dry finish of a Kolsch. This beer does not hold up well to food, and becomes bland even from light snacking. Please enjoy on its own.

A good beer for an hearty dinner. Malty, roasted popcorn, quaffable. Drunken from the bottle.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Bottle. Cloudy straw color. Little aroma consisting of light toasted malt and mild spicy hop. Flavor is clean and malty, light and yeasty, light bodied. Very weizen-esque. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden with a disappearing white head. Aroma of malt, bread and grass. Clean and sweetish bready malt flavour with mild herbal hop flavour and bitterness. I’d call it a helles not a pilsener

500 ML flip-top bottle in Germany. One thing I want to make clear about this beer. It is the best Pils I ever had. That being said I am no Pils fan. This is not really a Pils at all by my book. It has Pils taste but without all the bitterness. It pours a cloudy gold color. Nice full white head and taste of a softer version of a pils. Palate boders on being a Helles. Good stuff.

Hazy golden color. Medium head. Aromas of malts, fruits, hop. Taste is mostly hoppy, fruity and dry with some bitternes. Nice bitter and dry aftertaste.

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.
