4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mainly clear dark straw. Small, compact white froth. Very slow carbonation. German hop aroma met with wet grass and bready malts. Sharp, tingly and bracingly crisp. Nice initial hop charge of spicy Hallertau. Lemon rind aftertaste. Light body. Quenching, dry malt flavor of toasted white bread. Gentle slickness. Clean, fresh tasting with no residue. Finishes with mineral hints and a toasty counter to the hop bitterness. Very nice.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2004 The beer after is disembarking the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the Pilsner glass a luminous gold with a towering bright white head and the texture semi-creamy, as it erodes the left over lace a thin but concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is the prototypical pilsner crisp and clean, sweet malt with the start perfectly malted and slightly sweet, the top is light to moderate in its feel to the palate. Finish is biting in its acidity, the hops archetypal and the aftertaste desert bone dry, a drinkable beer.
