4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I was blown away by the taste on this pils. I wasnít expecting such a balanced attack of malt and hops. The hop profile on this is creeping in on pale ale territory and itís incredible. Aroma is grassy, slightly spicy and very enticing. Reminds me of how the inside of a brewery smells. Appearance is a light hazy yellow. Mouthfeel is very clean, very refreshing. Flavor is nice and bitter, with an emphasis on bitter. In fact, I canít recall the last pils this bitter, if ever. Simply exquisite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent pils - On draft at Bier Stein. A very nice appearance, golden with a nice cloudy white head, that settles down in to a smaller ring, and leaves some nice lacing behind. Acidic lemongrass aroma, with some mustard seeds. Malts are fresh and biscuity, clean and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 1pt. 9oz. euro brown bottle with a lot/package number on the back label. Made a good appearance, poured a pale straw golden with a large foamy, bubbly topped white head that settled into a thin, semi-sticky thin lacing, good carbonation. Had a lemon grassy nose with a pale grainy malty background. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. A nice dry pilsener taste, a subtle lemon grassy with some herbal notes, soft, rolling bitterness, a buried nutty flavor, a dry, sweet graininess and a dry grainy, lemony finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow with lots of medium to large bubbles. A sherbert lemon aroma, with a bit of a tripel-like spice. Not too much aroma comes through on tasting, just a bit of biscuit, but some strong bitterness - astringent and shallow. However, this seemed to mellow as I poured the bottom half of the bottle. It has a bit of a metallic mouthfeel, and it attacks the tongue and froths up. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
I find the lagers of Weltenburg to be amongst the finest in the world, yet this really didnít satisfy me at all. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a Weltenburger chalice. Clear pale yellowish gold body, highly charged in carbonation and topped off with a loose, fluffy white crown that lasted and left some lace (appearance was spot on the money). Dry, bitter and raspy lawn clippings, sour-grass, and bay leaves in the harsh aroma along with underlying notes of pine nuts, chaff and fresh squeezed lemons. Hop dominated in the mouth also and were rather harsh on the tongue. Grassy, leafy and bitter; slightly metallic, tangy and acrid down the back of the mouth. Extra light in body and slightly chemically soapy in mouthfeel, this was honestly a hard one to finish. Dry for the length with only an inkling of powdery grain that wasnít enough to save it. Disappointing, as I love this brewer. I just hope it was a bad sample. (50cL, 23/03/06, Intíl Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Very sweet aroma, but strangely bitter flavor. Enjoyable and somewhat light, slight bit of lacing from head.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright golden with lively carbonation and a retaining white & foamy head. Adequate, ragtag lace. Musty aroma with yeast, vinyl and herbal hops. Slightly acrid. Flavor held light roast and bitter, herbal hops. Didnít really do that much for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle, the fairly dense foam rises nicely, not overly carbonated. There is just a bit of lacing. The head dies down to about 1/2" after 2-3 minutes to almost nothing after that. Very pale yellow in color. Smells more malty than most pilsners.
Tastes more malty than most pilsners, as well. A bit of a malt / fruit / yeast aftertaste, but fairly mild. Decent beer but not ultra smooth like others in this category.
