2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber with a clean filtered appearance. 1 cm compact foam quickly disappearing and leaving a lacing. Aroma of light malt (German way) and grass. Tastes of bread malt, honey. Final bitterness and floral notes. It is not a pilsner but very drinkable. I have enjoyed it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,5 l bottle, brewed and bottled in Germany. Clear light amber in the glass, nearly white short living head. Hay and sweet malt on the nose. Starts malty, light sweetness. Don´t know why it´s called Pilsener. Not very herb. No long ending. Easy to drink but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330 ml, bought in a german supermarket, into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9%.
Dark orange copper to light amber colour on the body, crystal clear, with lots of activity in it. Two fingers of white head, thick enough with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of malts, clean hay, grass hops, quite typical but with more caramel malts. Reminds me of Alt beers.
Yeah, taste is definitely more to the Alt side than it is to a pilsner, with its caramel malts and basically follows the aroma, only there is a faint toffee taste too. Mildly bitter aftertaste.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Overall okay, goes down easy but being used to spiced beers for the Christmas this would never be between my first choices for those days

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Cautious caramel malty aroma, dry, husky, metallic overtones. Taste is expressionless metallic, dry malty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Also had the German version, 5.0% ABV. Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass not too zippy, small head. Starts mild, almost washy. Modest malty woth moldy notes. Finish a bit drier, but still very mild. Nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I think the brewery description here is wrong - it’s actually German-brewed, which I suspect means Hamburg. It’s amber, with a thin head and a slightly bready aroma. Flavour is a little malty and nutty, with some leafy hop notes and a decent bitterness, but also a metallic note in the finish. Very generic.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. An absolute classic. Pours in amber with medium stable head. Aroma of roasted malt and some fruit. Very nice one with a sweetish start and bitter ending. Like it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Amber with low head in looks. Taste of copper, light malt and roasted nuts. Reminds a lot of a German Altbier. Easy to drink but not really over-the-bottom delicious.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Keine Ahnung, was man von einem Weihnachtspilsener erwartet...Bis auf ein cooles Äußeres hat dieses Bier auch nichts wirklich zu bieten. Etwas Malz, minimale Herbe im Abgang. Nee, festlicher Geschmack ist was anderes...

Der Geschmack ist schön kräftig, hopfig und mit waldigem Eindruck. Der Nachgeschmack ist auch noch schön hopfig. Nicht schlecht .
