3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Revision 3/25/02: Okay, I just tried out Victory’s Prima Pils, and given where I rate that, and considering that as a Pilsener this doesn’t really come all that close, I’ve got to downgrade it a few points. Original review follows:
While Pilseners aren’t the typical choice of the sophisticates, I’ve developed a liking for some of them, and they rank among my favorites of the lager-style. This may well be the nicest Pilsener I’ve tried (though the Saranac Pilsener deserves a plug, too). Nice, strong, hoppy and, on the whole, enjoyable, as a Pilsener (or any beer, for that matter) should be. I’d drink this again.

Pale yellow. Dry and crisp with good bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A touch imbalanced in bitterness, but all in all, not a bad pilsener.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This isn’t a bad pilsener, however I probably wouldn’t buy it again because it is too bitter for the amount of flavour it contains - the bitterness tends to dominate more than it should. Still a pleasent drink though.
ADDED 1 December: It seems Oakes is complaining about people rating pilsner beers low due to their bitterness. I realise this is the style buht in my opinion the bitterness here is too dominant.

Like other Weltenburger products, good flavor then unenjoyable aftertaste.
