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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(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.

600 ml bottle found at my local grocery store for $2.49 pours a clear, pale golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly pils malt, with some gread, grass, and floral hops. Taste is silghtly sweet with a clean dry finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing, if not very memorable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a straw yellow with a large white head. Aroma is dry pils malt with a little burning in there. Flavor is again a light pale pils malt with a little burning flavor in the end. This must have gone bad somewhere along the journey.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle says 5.1, imported by Aiko.
500ml bottle. "Un pasteurized". **5.1% alc**
It pours into my large pilsener glass a nice gold with a perfect white head. Nice carbonation bubbles.
Smell isn’t outstanding but it is nice. Gets duller with each passing second. It is nicely herbal, plenty of noble hops.
The flavor is good. Low bitterness with some fruity hop flavors, nice bready malt character. A good proportional pilsener.
Definitely like the non-pasteurized part but as a pils it isn’t super amazing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle in a lager glass. Pours golden with a fluffy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and bread plus light hops. Flavor about the same, with a little off-taste. Average to light texture. Decent for the style.
