Light straw in colour, fine white coloured head, good lacing. The aroma is of pale malts, grassy hops, wheat, mildly sweet. The flavour is moderatly hopped (grassy, floral), wheaty, grainy, crisp. Bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a long bitterness, floral, light sweetness. Not to bad, clean and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried this one from the bottle at a small café just affront our hostel in Berlin, Germany.
Poured a vibrant and bright, yellowy gold with a nicely formed, smooth and dense white crown that held out and legged it down the glass. Ultra spicy nose, very peppery and dry with a nice showing of pale, fresh malts. Dry, sourish malts in the mouth, good base of chaff underlies it with a lovely showing of noble hops in back. It is spicy and presents itself well as it goes. Nice apex of grassy, earthy hops before a bitter climax that is clean and crisp with aid of the carbonation. It’s delicate overall, nicely balanced and refreshing. I quite liked this one. Easily session-making. Could have gone another but beer in Berlin was so cheap. Why limit oneself!(50cL, BBE 11/06)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Found this bottled at an Aldi grocery store in Batavia, Illinois. Poured pale straw in color, very slightly cloudy and a bit bubbly with a thick, white head. Nose of sweet bread and mown hay, actually fairly good pilsener, with a nice balance of sweetness in malts and dry hops, but with a very potent alcoholic aftertaste that is strong and unpleasant. Finishes clean. For my first Aldi beer, I’m impressed and will try more.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear light straw colour, with a quickly fading white head with a soap-like texture. Citrus aroma, then very bland. Difficult to seperate it from any other pilsner beer,

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear almost bright gold body with a decent size white head. Soft grainy malt aroma. Taste is fairly bland, grains once again, a little sweet and a short finish. Drinkable but I like my pilsener a little more crisper.

A well made German pils - enough bitterness and hops flavour, lightweight at the same time.

Thanks to Jack for the bottle. Clear light gold, pure white head, nice lacing. Nose is lemon, lightly malty. Some dough,rather boring. Flavor isjust odd. Almost clovey (or is that rubbing alcohol?) notes, some lemon, dough.
