Aroma of niagra grape, dates, corn and grain. Pours thin and amber with a decent starchy head. Taste is much more present and grainy. Notes of grapes and triscuts. Sokay.

Lack of aroma keeps the score down for this beer although it is quite nice. Pours a clear light amber with a small head. The only bit of aroma I get is some caramel. The flavor has all of what you would expect of a good German Pilsner. Nice clean finish.

500ml bottle in a lager glass. Pours golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of pale malts and light floral hops. Flavor pretty standard for the style. Average texture. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow-gold with a 3 finger, fluffy bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of cereeal grain, floral and spicy hops, a bit of bready yeast and sweet hay. Flavor is more cereal grain, light fruitiness, floral and light spicy hops, a little too much malty sweetness and light planty hops. Palate is light bodied with a lightly creamy entry, moderate strength carbonation and off dry, slightly chalky finish. Decent Pils overall, a little on the sweet and fruity side though.

0.4 Litre, served in a Pils flute. Pale golden colour, large foamy head, clear. Noble hop smell. Tasted on the sweet side for a Pils, fairly fruity, notes of Gummi bears. Fairly smooth with a bit of fiz. Overall nice drinkable Pils.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I do not know what it is about these German beers but so many of them have this off flavor that reminds me of artificial grape. This one had a good deal of that. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a huge soapy white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was faintly tart and tangy with notes of lemon, sourdough bread and a touch of artificial grape. The flavor was tangy lemon, artificial grape, sugar and bread. The finish was long and tangy with notes of lemon and grape lingering. Light body. Unimpressive.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. BBE 29.08.2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with lazy bubbles and a white head. Aroma of grass, vegetables and light honey. Flavour of grassy hops, hay, honey, vegetables and some light metallic notes. Light bodied, dry mouthfeel and a strong, grassy, bitter finish. Overall a stuffy Pils with some disturbing vegetable notes.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht blasses Pils mit einer mittelporigen, flachen Krone, welche sehr schnell verschwindet. Kaum CO2 steigt empor. Der Geruch ist hopfig und säuerlich herb, irgendwie unangenehm und leicht muffig. Der Antrunk ist besser. Frisch hopfig, und sehr merkwürdig süß. Diese süßliche Note habe ich bei einem Pils noch nie wahrgenommen, aber schlecht schmeckts nicht unbedingt. Merkwürdiges, aber dennoch probierenswertes Pils!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like this beer. Very bready, lightly metallic, soft, not super crisp but more like a helles. I like the breadiness, especially in the aroma, quite floral, bit soapy. I enjoy it. Thin and quaffable, bit chalky.
