Bottled 18/10/13. A straw blonde coloured beer with a littlw white puddle of head. Sweet buttery and creamy in the nose. A bit of vomit in the mouth Malts aren’t pleasant. Low hops. Not my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle from Waitrose Sidford. Golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty, shy hoppy touch. Hints of cardboard. Not the best German Pils, I wonder why they chose this brewery to represent Germany....

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty unremarkable beer this, really. A sweetness dominates proceedings. Can’t imagine wanting more than a couple. A bit thin.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Nike Outlet Store, West Bromwich. Not a brilliant German Pils if I’m absolutely honest with myself (which I rarely am). A bit sweet and greasy. Not too dry or crisp, which is rather contrary to what it says on the label.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold with a slight white head and a few bubbles. Sweet, cereal malt and floral hop aroma. Flavour had sweetish fruitiness, some solid malts and lingering bitter finish. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bronze with a strong and not really pleasant aroma upon opening.
Unusual sweet flavour which didn’t exactly excite me. Not what I had expected and rather disappointing.

Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are cabbage, metal and corn with yeast. Hints of banana with base biscuit. Flavours are bready yeast with low lemon and grain. Candy sugar with vegetable and corn notes. OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Waitrose Willerby. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Pleasant grainy sweetness and delicate grassy hops in the nose, full bodied and balanced in the mouth with a gentle fruity maltiness offset by a sustained hop bitterness, soft finish with a slightly estery note creeping in towards the end.
