2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Run of the mill pilsener, bigger bitterness and crisper malt profile than the standard macro, in no way an interesting beer though.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
0.33l bottle shared with the tasting crew. This one pours a clear golden body with a small bubbly - almost transparent little head. The aroma is pale malty with some soft and low fruity yeasty hints. Thin and watery texture in the mouth with a medium carbonation level. It starts off pungent muddy with a yeasty-cheese like yeastiness before it ends in a watery and almost sour finish and aftertaste. Forgettable. 30.01.2012

Bottle. Pours light golden, with a nice but small head. Aroma is roasted malts, and notes of a zesty hoppines. Flavour is a pleasant roasted malt, with a nice sweetness of toffee and bread. There’s a presence of zesty hops, giving a fairly bitter and long after taste.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Light golden body, tiny white head. Aroma is light malty tones with hints of dry hops. Taste is astringent hops, honey, cellar must. Too old, probably (expiration date a few months back). Will re-rate on occasion. Oh wait; no - can’t be bothered with this one. :-P

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nur leicht hopfiger Geruch, besetzt mit Fehlaromen von Zigarrenasche. Startet getreidig. Mitte flacht süßlich ab, wirkt wässrig. Mehliger, ganz spät abbitternder Ausklang. Schwaches Bier.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Urine-yellow with a small and quickly dissipating head. The elegant bottle looks quite the opposite. Contrary to what I expected this is a very good pilsener northern-German style. That is - fast, bitter and crisp. Evidently more hoppy (grassy, herbal, hay) than malty, rather thin body, lacking any complexity but serving its purpose really well.
