3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Safeway. Pours light yellow with a white head. Flavor is dry, grassy hops and biscuit malt with light lemon and citrus hops finish and a tiny bit of skunk. Light bodied with nice peppery carbonation. A classic, light German pilsner. Crisp, refreshing and very easy to drink. Great balance. Really nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pretty good pils with the typical notes. Some hops, not a ton. Clean and drinkable but nothing to write home about. Not to say I couldn’t put away a few of them...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear pale yellowish color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some corn and stale grains, though manages to seem crisp. Taste is light and fairly crisp, and slightly sweet. OK, but nothing spectacular.

330ml into glass. Minimal aroma, grassy pepper perhaps? Clear yellow with small film of foam. Little carbonation. Average bitterness, hoppy finish. Some cooked vegetables a tiny amount of malt coming through at the end. Not so great. Einfach Langweilig!

Drank while wandering around Chicago in 2012 -- Great pilsner. Would prefer over the Mass produced Pilsner that’s celebrated centennials.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super light, super regular. A typical European pils. Overly lackluster. Smooth and crips with the usual off-putting aroma.
