3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty good pilsener, fairly representative aroma, decent pour with a lightly golden color and bright, almost luminescent head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with a quite grassy undertone. Flavor is thirst quenching and light, quite cleansing in fact. Would be good after a plate of hammered pork. I enjoyed it.

Fresh hop nose is spicy and grassy in character with underlying grainy pils malt aroma. Clear golden body is topped by a decent white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Fairly spicy hops over grainy malts with fair bitterness in a pretty straight-forward, simple but pleasant flavour. Light body with crisp carbonation. Lager glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (State Line Liquors, MD, Oct-05).

Yellow. Big, bubbly, rocky white head. Aromatic hops, malt, and corn/grain in the aroma. Decent malt backbone with better than expected hop character, the grainy corn is still hanging around, though. Light bodied, easy drinking, lively carbonation. Refreshing.

When I poured this beer in my Andechs glass, the head climbed a full 2 inches out of the glass without spilling. Perhaps the finest looking berr I have poured. Slight earthy aroma. Very malty beer. Excellent. I can’t believe these low ratings.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours the color of straw, thin white head. Body is crystal clear. Smell is grassy with just a faint hint of hops.
Taste is also grassy. Not much malt profile and just a little hoppy bite an the end. the mouth is crisp but just too fizzy, way to much carbonation. Nothing worth revisiting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
.5L bottle poured into a boot. Very light yellow body with ample carbonation fueling a tall white head. Sweet white bread aroma with a dry yeast finish. No hop aromatics. Iffy hop-bitter start to the flavor followed by a strong vegetal flavor. Low-power pale malt throughout. Dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden-straw color with a good creamy white head that doesn’t last very long with some lacing, grainy and flowery aromas. Bready, cracker flavors with a mild sweetness that turns hoppy and bitter with some dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a crisp but kind of thin mouthfeel, a decent pils.
