3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft served in krug (!). Has lasting cap. Aroma is similar to the lager but has a lot more herbs detectable as well as gin. Not as grainy as the lager too, but has fresh grain in the background. Salty. Has a juicy palate. Very nice dose of herbs, has basil character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 fresh bottle in Bamberg. brilliant clear gold body with a fine-bubbled, soft white whipped cream head. exceptionally soft and silky body as with all of their products. succulent semi-sweet honey-glazed baked cracker pilsner malt with a minerallic / calcium yeast and water quality that says without question that this is a German product. citrus-like lemon and dried herbs / flowers aroma dance and waft without end. frothy with rich carbonation and rigid malt texture, drying, smacking finish is perfectly clean, and the hop acids are quenching and the bitterness perfectly suited for the body and sweetness level. very, very hard to beat this for German pilsner.
Update 2013: I believe the days of 4.0+ lagers from Kundmüller are over now that they have expanded and moved bottling to a separate facility. The quality is now poor and the bottling inconsistent, so buyer beware.

Bottle, bought at the brewery. Lasting frothy head. Some grassy hoppiness in the aroma. Malty flavor with a fair amount of hops. Grassy, hoppy aftertaste. Beautifully balanced pilsener beer from a tiny brewery in a "few houses and a brewery" Franconian village

It’s golden with a white head, and the aroma has notes of malt, straw, fruit and flower. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, citrus, fruit, flower and straw in the dry, slightly bitter finish. It’s a really nice pilsner.

Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts mild, modest dry, fine hoppy background. More and more spicy, with some grasy notes. Finish dominated by spicy notes. Well balanced and quite drinkable.
