3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by '02 on bottle: Aroma is interesting to say the least. Rubber band, light citrus, woody. Hazy golden hue. Big white head. Very much like a watered down triple, as austin p. says. Spicy, light fruit, citric, bitter, yeasty and all funked out. A very drinkable beer, but this will surprise your palate no doubt. Im very impressed. Very dry, quenching, light bodied, velvety smooth, with a big bitter finish. The yeast is just incredible here, providing a generous flavor boost. mmmmm.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very nice but terribly overpriced pils. My sample was a drunk a year after its expiration date. It showed gorgeous head and lacing over a cloudy pale gold body. The aroma was exactly like Warsteiner/Bitburger--good light mix of hops and malt. Malt character was friendly, some citric and sour qualities, finishing long with the sort of dull bitterness found in some of the trappist ales (versus the sharp pils bitterness of Jever). Excellent pils--sort of a mix of a Belgian Ale (given the hop character) and Rhineland Pils.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Cloudy golden colored, thick lasting white head, beautiful. Very flowery nose, hops, hint of honey even. Smooth hopbitter finish, flowery again. Lasting bitter finish. Absolutely phenomenal pilsener, perhaps even the best i know.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A flowery, Belgian-style witbier with lots of spicy kick. Not really a pilsener in the traditional sense, so donít buy this expecting Pilsner Urquell. I see this brew as more of a watered-down tripel in taste (and I donít mean that as a bad thing). Heavily carbed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned. Gold, with an excellent fluffy white head with lots of lace and good condition. Fruity aromas simmilar to a wit but without the spiciness, hints of hoppiness. Honeyed hop flavours, refreshingly tart and bready. Good balance of fruitiness and hop bitterness in the finish. Adding the yeast midway through changes it from a ale-like pils to a triple lite.

Bottled. Golden colour, very hazy. Lively with creamy head. Lightly flowery, citrusy aroma. Dry and rather light bodied, with some yeasty witbier character and an aromatic finish with moderate bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy aroma and flavor. Citrus. Pretty dark and cloudy for a pilsener. Just a bit thin, but with a long hopbitter finish. The definite Czech-type pilsener, brewed in Amsterdam. Highly recommended.

When this is a Pilsener, it must be absolutely one of the best pilseners.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Taste has been explicitly described by the others. That this beer is actually a pilsener, i couldnít imagine. Full of taste, delicious aroma. If this is truly a pilsener, it is a HELL of a pilsener!

Hoppy perfume aroma. Hazy, golden colour, good lace. Very hoppy and dry, light sweet, full. Long lasting finish. Probably the best pilsener I ever had.
