3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought an an ALDI in Vermont; very cheap, just over $1 a bottle, and I was very pleased. Classic German Pilsner character...very light, hoppy, and bitter. Crisp mouthfeel and flavor. Moderate bitterness...very refreshing. Significant metallic taste, but this didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the brew. I would definitely buy again. Not the best Pilsner (it’s brewed by the same brewery as Bitburger but I think I pretty clearly prefer Bitburger, among other Pilsners), but at this price I really can’t complain.

6 pack from Aldi’s. Pours a deep yellow with a frothy 2 finger head. Though in a brown bottle mine seemed a little skunked showing some vegetal notes. Solid lightly sweet malt underpinning and grassy hops are the name of the game. A bit less crisp and more malty than other German pilsners. Note bad. I’d like to try it fresh.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can bought at Cheers in Yuen Long.
Pale golden yellow colour; Two finger head and crumpety white foam which last for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with active small carbonation; Fragrant aroma of Pils malt, with strong honey, floral, strong dough, yeast, strong lemon and quite fresh grass; Close to medium sweet taste of moderate malt, with floral, honey, strong molasses, light earth, bread, biscults, strong lemon, very strong bitter hops and quite strong grass; Mid to light body, slick palate; Mouth feel is moderate malty body, not as suggestive as the aroma. Lots of floral and fairly nice honey sweetness, but is pretty much dictated by strong Pils hoppiness (plus extract, too). Some light earth and light bread to round up. Vibe is pretty good. Cool!... Hoppiness is floral, strong lemon , and grass in nose, the same plus light earth in taste. Bitterness – hops and extracts- is very strong for a lasting strong astringent and bitter-sweet finish; Fairly dry after taste, Very bitter and nice sweet to mouth.
Comments: It has a soft and pleasant colour, and its honey and doughty aroma makes a nice 1st impression. Throught its body is not as strong and hops are dominated by bitter extract, it’s still a pretty solid German Pils which tried hard for a nice characters. Nicely drinkable for the style.

The beer pours a very clear light yellow color with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma is fairly slinky, but keeping your nose in the glass reveals some pils malt, lager yeast, and a touch of earthy hops. The taste is mildly bitter and slightly sour with a fairly non-existent aftertaste except for a hint of malt that lingers. The mouthfeel has a slick texture and a medium-light body, and the carbonation is average, which helps to clean the palate after every sip.

Bottle. Nose is grass, straw, caramel. Taste is bitter, herbal, slightly metallic. Carries some more taste than similar Pilsners. Anyway, for a macro it’s absolutely drinkable and pretty refreshing if cold.
