3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 Current RB classification puts this as my 100th "Classic German Pilsener". Swing-top by 06.09.12. Very sweet and intense nose, big citrus and grass, lemon and dust and straw with floral overtones. Dull golden on the way to orange with a sudsy off-white head. Taste has medium but lasting bitterness, cut with some metal and hard grain, light sweetness that may be perceived a little stronger on account of the hops. Medium body crisp but a little oily. OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brauhaus
Very nice arom aof noble hops, and some crispy malt too. The mouthfeel is dry initially, then the malt brings some light sweetness; the malt flavor is moderate but of fairly good quality; quite strong bitterness but not much hop character. Solid, pleasant and fresh.
