3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bavarian beer night, just me and some bottles on 19th Aug 2014. 500ml flip-top: BBD 4th Mar 2015. Poured into an old SchlossBrau stemmed tulip glass three times. Good clear golden body, clean and bright with a solid and lasting white crown. Semi-sweet nose with a dry taste, this is a good, regular Pilsner with a pleasant feel to it. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a well made, easy to drink, refreshing beer in a style available all over the world.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, light gold with a frothy white head.
Lemon, floral aroma.
Taste is a floral bitter....and little else.
Musty, thin....maybe a little old.
Not exactly pleasant.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, malty, not too dry. Light hoppy background. Some metallically hints. Finish well balanced, still mild. Average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a a clear straw yellow body with a nice two finger fizzy white head that slowly gained density. The nose is grassy hops with crusty bread pils malt and just a slight tinge of sulfur. Crisp flavor with a good bit of grassy hops and light bready maltiness. A bit of a carbonic bite on the finish and some lingering light bitterness. Light bodied and crisp with sturdy biting carbonation. Overall, this was a damn decent German Pilsener. So far 2 for 2 from these guys. At just a buck a bottle, it looks like I’m going to have a very Veldensteiner summer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl swingtop - clear golden, fizzy beer, with a foamy, rapidly shrinking head that settles to a decent lace - aroma of grassy hops, floral notes, sweet malts, a strange vegetal quality, and a light mineral character - honey sweet at first, but an herbal/floral kick and medium hop bitterness creep in to balance that out pretty nicely - there is a bit of a chalky feel on the back end, and the hops don’t really bite like I want them to in a pils, but this is a decent beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Swing-top bottle. Sweet, lemon and chalk nose, there’s a really pleasant floral and ländlich aspect to the yeast, a little hard for me to get at, but it reminds me more of Zwickl and Landbier. Pours a sickly brown-golden with a dense, creamy and lacing bright white head. Taste is almost sickly sweet and herbal, again pushing toward vegetal character, chalky and slightly grainy water and malt, some yeast. Dusty, husky, and mealy, with a character somewhere between liquified old library book pages and the rotted-out glue that once bound them. Crisp light-medium body, does refresh but is sure to raise the eyebrows.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml swing cap bottle. Poured a hazy gold body with a fuller dense off white tight foamy head that leaves gobs of lace up and down my DFH goblet. Aroma sadly isn’t that great, notes of wet bran flakes, old raisins, dough, bad grapes, walnut and date oatmeal. Medium bodied with very soft to almost nonexistant carbonation, sweet aftertaste. Flavor is on the sweet malty side with notes of dates, bad raisins, old dough, stamp glue, figs. Meh.....not something I would buy again, and I paid to see Star Wars The Phantom Menace twice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is slightly vegetable like. Aroma is on dry malt, light toasted malt, sweet, good bitterness that gives a very feeling at the finish. Correct pilsener.
