4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Couleur blonde dorée, faible mousse pleinement diminuante. Maïs, légumes bouillis et grain sont pleinement arrogeant en arôme. Céréales, grains et houblons générique ne sont guère plus satisfaisants. Une pils générique de calibre industriel. Corps d’épaisseur mince, carbonatation active, finale sucrée. Sans intérêt! Canette, LCBO Ottawa, Mai 2005.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pretty good euro pils, had a bit of a bite, but not enough! Not bad, I’d drink it in Austria, but won’t seek it out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear, very light yellow with a massive head. Starchy aroma with a tight corn-malt aroma; bit of saaz character, but primarily a brisk malt. Standard Europils.

Fairly decent, light and dry. Had this in a cozy little bar off a hot plaza in Salzburg. Cute waitress that served it to me, who also spoke English. Ace.

For the longest time I have seen this sitting on the shelf and I have wanted to take the plunge and buy it and try it. Well. I am glad that I had it in a tasting that cost the same as the cost of the beer. ITs a pills, there is nothing else I have to say about it.
