2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale in appearance. Head fades fast leading it to go a bit flat. Slightly musty aroma like overcooked vegetables. Flavour is a little bland and watery. Only slightly hoppy. Texture and feel is clean but uninspiring.

Woody graininess in the snout. Bitterly dry and cleanly hoppy with some maize-like softness after the swallow.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite a regular local pils. Higher on bitterness than most from the NRW area. I would really love to like it more as it’s basically the only beer from Essen, but I just can’t find anything really good about this beer. There’s usually a better one to chooce.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, off-license in Düsseldorf, Germany (June ’06).
Pours a sunny, yellow tinged straw and bright as they come. Small eddies of fine carbonation released to a decent, well-retained head of fluff. Spicy, Noble hops on the nose, clean, dry, grassy and peppery, with just a little barnyard grain lurking underneath. Pale, clean malts up first in the mouth, a lot of hops are present and the malt soon cowers underneath. Very light in body, you could call it delicate yet it bounces across the tongue with lightning speed. Grassy, peppery hops in back, dry, dusty and well orchestrated. Finish has a peak of bitterness before dropping off clean, crisp and dusty. This is a very clean tasting lager, nothing special but it goes down a treat and doesn’t leave any evidence behind to stop you enjoying the nights next beer. A decent Pils. (50cL, 15/09/06)
