2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the swing-top bottle it pours a light yellow with a lively head. Alternating lacing , quaff lines with light lacing in-between. Now looks a light to moderate gold in the glass. Nose of grass and corn. body is light and mild. Not much in the hop department. A relaxing brew after the mowing session.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 500 ml fliptop) Clear yellow pour with no head and very light carbonation. Very light aroma. Almost nonexistent. Light sweet and grass notes, but that’s about it. Dry sweetness at the start of the flavor. Light and crisp with a mild hop bitterness at the middle leading toward the aftertaste. Smooth and very refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
18/03 0.5 l fliptop bottle. It pours pale yellow body with medium sized head. Lemony hop aroma, some vegetable malty notes. Flavor is fine though, has fine herbal bitterness and weaker honey and biscuit malt. It’s medium bodied with nice bitterish finish. Simple, but not bad at all for my taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
swing top bottle 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog/heavy who brought it from Berlin (thanks!)
Yellow coloured, small airy white head, slight acidic vegetable nose. Sweet malty, slight hoppy and grassy with notes of corn. Short bitterish finish. Boring.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from some gas station in Fränkischen Schweiz I guess, shared with heavy and ogivlado, like most others today. Poured a shiny yellow body, small white head, good head retention. Vegetabley sweetish nose, light rice. Ugh. The taste, however manages to be completely different and actually bitter. Bitterish and hoppy, nice, slightly piney, going into the aftertaste. That’s all there is, one dimensional and simple but quite pleasant, better than most bottled pilseners that we had during the trip to Berlin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light aromas of straw, dried grass and a hint of pepper. Head is small, frothy/bubbly white with thin but good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Flavor starts lightly acidic, and is followed by a long, faintly sweet and acidic and a lightly bitter finish. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Not very complex like most Classic German Pilseners, but this was an easy drinker.
