2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 500 ml can. Pours a headless light golden, sparkling yet lifeless. Aroma has some slight wet paper bag essence. a hint of saaz hoppiness. Flavor is dull and somewhat lifeless, just a hint of honey sweetness, some dusty grainy notes, some mineral water. Mouthfeel is thin and dry. Not one of Germany’s finest Pils.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This might be a touch on the mild side for some but not a bad German pilsener all in all. It’s perfectly clear golden with a foamy and large head. I get an edge of floral, noble hops in the nose and some fresh cracked malt. The floral hops really pop out once you taste it, very fresh and floral with crisp, earthy bitterness and a touch of mineral character to touch the very light malty sweetness. This is a fairly full bodied beer and nicely drinkable though I do find myself wishing for just a little more carbonation. Overall, this is a nice take on the style: good hops, malty w/o being sweet and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with strong carbonation. Fruity mealy sugary aroma with floral paper notes. Sweetish honey and flowers taste with mealy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy floral fruity aftertaste with spicy notes. Nothing wrong with this. Nice, straightforward lager. (0.5l can, Vinbudin Kringlan, Reykjavik. My notes give ABV as 5.1%.)

Pils aroma with a mild floral hop aroma. Appearance is a brilliant light gold with an avg head. In the flavor the pils flavor dominates with a slight sweetness. Hop flavor is low and of a floral character. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Overall, I prefer pilsners with more hop aroma and flavor.
