3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Mildly doughy malty aroma with herbal, grassy and slightly ethereally hoppy accents. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Pale malty base with present herbal hoppy notes; bitter-sweet malty with almost lingering grassy and herbal hoppy flavours. Decent German Pils. The Saphir character could be more evident. 11.IX.12

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from B&M, Reading. A pale straw colour with a fast fading white head and lots of carbonation; pleasant herbal, sweet hay aroma; smooth, with a pleasant grainy taste, and a tasty dryness from the hops, that give a slight savouryness to the finish. A really flavoursome Pils - well above average.

Bottle, B&M. Quite pale, slight haze, finger thick white head, lasting quite well. Pleasant malt/hop flavours, medium body. I rather like this!

Half litre bottle, poured into oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Pale colour, clear, initial large foamy head faded fast, didn’t have a huge amount of lacing. S: Pilsner malt and noble hop, slightly floral. T: Decent amount of bitterness, bready, sour dough, finished with a hint of sour fruit. M: Slightly heavy body, fading carbonation, slightly coarse feel. O: Not really an IPL at all, a pretty decent Pilsner for what it was.

Draught. Clear golden in color with a white head. Bit of sweet malts, grassy bitterness and citrus in aroma. Quite much on the grainy side. Citrus and floral notes in taste. Bit of sweetness and fruityness steps up towards the end.

Dobry pilsner, ze spora i trwala piana znaczaca na orginalnym pokalu slady. Kolor zlocisty, srednio nagazowany. Sapach chmielowy, w smaku takze chmiel, umiarkowane orzezwienie, lekko w posmaku nuta orzechow laskowych, nie wiem ale tak jakos mi sie skojarzylo. Nie mniej poprawnie odfermentowany pilsner bez cukru.

Tap@wka. Pale golden. super clear. Germal pilsner malty, with a very light huskyness and a bit of corn creamyness to it. Light dry. Well (too well) hidden light herbal grassy hops, pretty nice pale malty flavour. Doesn’t have that much intensity, but does actually taste like malts. Unfortunately, there’s also that clean corn that makes me think of totally sterile mass-bulk stuff.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very pale colour, frothy head that lasts long and shows fair lacing. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Light bitterness. Light body, average carbonation, a bit too high. Easier to drink, but also without as much character as most German pilseners. Ok, but nothing spectacular.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle. Clear golden in the glass, big head. Mash and gassy at the nose. Starts moderate herb, grassy, light grainy. Later more dryer with malt in the background. Not really bad for an bavarian industrial Pilsener.
