3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 Something about this beer gave me the chills, but not in a good way. The color was good, but there was almost no head. Things started to go downhill with the aroma. I couldnt put my finger on it, but to me it smelled a little like butter. I cant explain it. The taste was nothing to brag about. Over all, a poor offering from this otherwise excellent brewery. Newest thoughts: Had this out of a bottle, and it was much much better. Still nothing to brag about, but it was alot more drinkable. As it warmed, the hops became more evident, and was much easier to drink. Maybe I just had some bad stuff from the tap.

Nothing stands out about this one. Perhaps a easy going beer to serve to guests that has a little more class than a Bud or Miller.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cross between a bohemian pils and a helles lager. Golden color with a white fluffy head. Seems to lack hops for a pils and backbone malt for solid lager. Drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

Nothing complex about this about this Pilsner. Poured very with a thin head and almost no carbonation. Hop taste and aroma present but not enough to make this beer as great as other Sprechers I’ve sampled.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow in color with a thin head that disipated quickly out of the bottle. There are some malt flavors but nothing very complex. A little thin in the body. There was an almost metallic tang in the finish. Not my favorite pilsner.

Amber colored. Nice malty aroma, Saaz hops are prevalent. Has a light body (may have been called ’less filling’ a few years back). The amber by Sprecher is much more flavorful.

Replaced the ’Milwaukee Pilsener,’ which was better. Light, light, light. Very drinkable, but not challenging. Sometimes a little sour.

A very pleasant and smooth lager with sufficient malt and not over-hopped.

A little watery like the pub ale. Very floral hoppy aroma.

A little too watery for me, but I can see how someone would like this.
