2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw colour, bit of white head, bit of lacing. Medium / light body, not overly carbonated. Little aroma. Hint of herbs. Dry finish. Clean and refreshing - not exactly overburdened by taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught/Keg @ The Brewery Tap. Brentford -West London . Ok so I met my mother who was in the area buying spirtual art pictures of owls , they are her íspirit guide í in a Shamanic context -if U believe in such concepts . Any way , I never drink @ the Tap but my Mom wanted too cause its closer to the Hippy ass art gallery . IMO my reluctance is its a boring Fullers pub with low boost mundane brews ..run by weird Australians ...and anyone with a palate in Brentford drinks @ the excellent Magpie And Crown pube ... Thatís a fucken pub right there , a pub with good craft and a friendly rough around the edges ambience ! bro if youre in my hood go there ! I donít even rate beer now, the practice is dead to me- try just boosting your fave beers for a few months without thinking about nuances and shit -its liberating . ...I think the act of rating beer was smoke screening my alcoholism in a charade .Look, im a sophisticated drunk @ weekends !. So I got this Pils @ the boring Fullers owned TAP..it was this Pils or Low Boost Golds - I like PIlsí anyway . My Mom got a large Bordeaux as she was in the mood to boost fast , we talked about this that and nothing too ... VELTINS PIls arrived in its own pint mug glass ,im a fan of such glasswear ,theyíre classy boheimian. Any wAy , this is tight ass shit if you like PIss ant delicate PILsí ,but this was not brewed in an obscure mountain town , no its very macro , very dry , very bready and a tad sweet . Better than a LOW BOOST GOLD in the piss ant Brewery TAp ? Big time !

Ik ben blij verrast met dit Duitse biertje. Het drinkt makkelijk weg. Verder is het niet speciaal ofzo, gewoon goed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a pretty decent Pilsner for sure. It is golen yellow in color w/ a huge, foamy white head. It has a big, herbal hoppy nose and is overall dry and crisp, just how Iíd hope for a German pils to be. This is full bodied for the style w/ relatively brisk carbonation. It finishes w/ a clean herbal bitterness. I got this from the clearance cart at Binnyís in the South Loop so I canít imagine itís fresh but I will be damned if itís not a very fine tasting beer regardless. I will definitely be seeking this one out to try again.
