Schön süffig, schon im Antrunk. Im Hauptteil allerdings wird es noch muffiger, und dazu leicht herb. Der Nachgeschmack schmeckt, wie der Kleiderschrank meiner Oma riecht - total trocken-muffig mit leichter Herbe. "Keller" passt auch ganz gut - nicht so mein Fall!!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Pale yellow-tan color. Thin, oily head. The aroma is kind of old and approaches putrid buttery. The body is soft, but the flavor just isn’t there. I’m sure this isn’t the freshest example. Lemony cardboard finish. Not good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Translucent straw, light carbonation, small frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Grassy nose,
yeasty, dull or stale, a bit bready and musty.   Similar on the tongue, decent malt base, but finishes quick.
Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dull grassy finish.   Not as bright or crisp as others.   Clean, but very
pedestrian.   Perhaps a bit heavier and more grassy than others.   Needs to be sharper/crisper.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle, in my opinion too much gold on the label. Pours pale golden, small short living head. More than average carbonation. Grainy and honey for the nose. Starts malty. Followed by cereals and low hops. Ends with long lasting light hop bitterness. Typical Pilsener out of central germany.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear pale straw color with a small white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the thin head. Aromas of apple, pear, honey, grape, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt/fruity ester notes with a fair amount of hop presence; and solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, cracker, grape, honey, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant balance of malt/fruity ester flavors with a fair amount of hops; with solid flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a solid Pilsener. Good balance of malt/hop/fruity ester flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

(Flasche) Es hat eine etwas sehr hellgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, fruchtig-blumig, fast kaugummiartig. Der Geschmack ist anfangs nur breit, bitter, ölig und adstringierend, dann kommt eine Diacetylnote durch und etwas Süße.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up lemon zest and grassy notes over a pinch of honey and some bready malts.. clean and refreshing feel to it. The flavor found grainy bread and a kiss of honey at the core.. tangy lemon zest laced throughout.. some white spices and yeasty notes on the edges.. grainy, yet refreshing finish. Light-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. just an OK feel and flow.. aiight.
