2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can’t really get excited about pilseners, but I guess I should try and be unbiased. Pours a pale straw colour, with a tiny and short-lasting head. The aroma was basic pils - grassy hops and maybe some lemon. The flavour was not bad - finished bitter and the aftertaste was pleasing. Pretty thin palate, though, but it is a pilsener afterall....

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Sour malt aroma - slightly skunky. Light golden yellow with little head. Tart-sour creamy malt flavor. Moderate body. Very light for the style - one of my least favorite German style pilseners.

Looked, smelled and tasted like a lager. Thin overly carbonated, cardboardy, dull and uninteresting

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
No head, no lacing ,highly carbonated, citrussy aroma, I thought I picked up a little maltiness,with heavy hop flavor.It comes across like a Heineken till you swallow with a grapefruit like finish (heavy cascade hops perhaps ?)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, pale yellow in color with a creamy, tall, frothy white head. Aroma reveals spray starch, dryer sheets, crisp lemons and spruce trees. Sweetness prevails in a sugar bread formation. Lemon shortbread cookies help pronounce a decent balance of pils hop levels and malt profile. Finishes like lemon biscotti. Formidable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very pale straw gold with a tall fizzy white head. Very crisp grassy grainy aroma, nice sharp hops. Very nice carbonation keeps this very crisp and refreshing emphasizing the hops in the finish.
