3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a crystal clear pale golden yellow with hues of straw yellow, lots of carbonation bubbles continually rising to the surface, lots of head, and darned pretty lacing on the way down. Head retention was a little weak after a few minutes, but this is as good as a pilsner can look, especially from a bottle. Aroma was bready, doughy, grainy, grassy. The flavor followed suit but finished with a metallic and acidic mouthfeel behind the nicely hopped finish (a very nicely balanced pilsner, malts there but not "sweet" or overly honey-like). Would love to give this another shot on draft in Bayern one day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Colour is pale yellow with greenish tinges, firm white head. Fresh, malty and bready nose with distinct notes of grassy hops. Fresh malty taste with a clean, grassy, hoppy bitterness in the finish. Long, almost metallic, bitterness, but still with a smooth mouthfeel. Dry all the way through. Medium body, falling through somewhat towards the end. Very nice and clean pilsener.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow, decent carbonation, OK head. Full aroma, quite bready, hint of floral hops. Full bready malt flavor, grass, hay and floral hops, a bit of sourness on the finish detracts a bit. Overall, a nice pilsner except for that somewhat out of place twang on the finish.

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 wasn’t expecting such a balanced attack of malt and hops. The hop profile on this is creeping in on pale ale territory and it’s 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 can’t recall the last pils this bitter, if ever. Simply exquisite.

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.
