3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a gorgeous slightly hazy pale yellow with a big, tight, fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is herbal, with a fairly high level of honey sweetness, some hay, and a little bit of breakfast cereal. It’s not as hop forward smelling a beer as I would want from a German Pils, particularly one from Weltenburger... but that’s not to say that there isn’t some juicy citrus and plenty of herbal hop expression, these aromas simply don’t take center stage & are replaced by some nice things, and other.... less nice things.
The flavor is disappointing, a touch to sweet, and sort of metallic at first. Mid palate the hops pick up, lots of herbal character, plenty of bitterness, and a light fruitiness and citrus rind that plays nicely with the crisp and lightly sweet malt expression. As the glass progresses the bad bits at the front become less and less prominent and the beer becomes more and more enjoyable. The finish is dry.
I might have set the bar a little high here, but the last few bottles I’ve had from the same brewery, bought from the same beer shop, in the same cooler have been among my favorites of the last month or so. German Pils is a style I really love, so I got a little excited to try it. It’s perfectly good beer, enjoyable on all accounts... but I so wanted to love it so much I went out and bought a case... that’s not happening.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, perfumey and a bit floral. The flavor was bitter, dryish and a touch bready with moderate perfume, floral hops and lemon. Medium length dry lemon and perfume finish. Medium body. Eh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle in Regensburg, German. Pours a normal Pils yellow with a fine whit head. Aroma is a bit sweet for style but fits otherwise. Taste is like a normal Pils but in the Southern German style while is sweeter than the nNorth German Types. Palate ends more mellow that said type as well.

(Draught at Sivukirjasto, 20120614) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, sweetness, grain and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, grain, mild tartness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy, grainy and bitter. A decent pils but a bit too sweet aroma.

500ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly to leave some thin spots of lacing behind. Aroma is mild citrus with some cereal grains and grass. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a crisp citrus and grassy hop bitterness that finishes clean on the palate. Light to medium body and good carbonation. One of the better German Pils that I have encountered thus far.
