2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Billowy white froth; clear straw hue. Sharp fennel and grass hop bouquet over a simple honey and grain malt base. A cutting bitterness throughout is accentuated by the overall dryness. Suitably thin and briskly carbonated with a firm texture.
Pleasantly bittered, accented by the malt structure that may lend some unfortunate astringency.
50 cl bottle, best before 14 May 2009.
Sparkling yellow body with a diminishing white head. Light malt (light bread), moderate hops (grass), light yeast (dough). Moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Very big for a pils. Creamy mouthfeel. This is one of the better pils I’ve had (stella, urquell). The sweet start and dry finish are interesting.

This beer just seemed to appear everywhere. Nice clear everyday beer. I would rank this as 1 of my staple beers.

Slight malt nose. Light colored (2 SRM?). Slight malt flavor with a very lager clean finish. Not a bad beer to have with friends when you all want to get tanked.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
May be a 250 year old German Pilsener recipe but not a classic. Just a fairly average Pilsener. Clean, crisp and shallow.

Not much of an aroma. What was there wasn't appealing. Pours a very light yellow, head weak. Not much in the body, plastic tasting finish. Avoid...

Every country has to make a straw colored light, 'innofensive' beer. This is one of Germany's. But in the general category this one is good for a couple reasons... The finish is complex, and the hops linger in a dry happiness, and the aroma is amazing. The beer has a very flowery smell.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yummy hay-juice hoppiness, deliccious, also quite malty. A bit thinner than necessary. Of course clear light golden with a huge fluffy protypical head. Not so bad!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Aroma is very nice and reminds me of good nights in Austria drinking large glasses of Warsteiner. As I look at this glass, it cries out, "Drink me! Oh, Drink ME!" So you know I have to. Mmmm the flavour is very pleasant and enjoyable and brings back terrific memories. The flavour is very wheaty. I should mention that this is a 5 liter keg we are drinking from, so this really helps. I don't understand why other raters don't give this a higher rating. This is GREAT fresh and from a keg! Listen to me. This is great stuff. Try it! The more you drink it the more you get a taste for it and you get a chance to sort out its complex flavours. 30.5% really does not give this beer justice. It is wonderful from a keg, trust me on this, and in a large Pilsener glass it looks so attractive. I give this quite a high rating.
