3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Classic pilsner aroma. Fruity: White grape juice, apple, apricot, and peach scents. Cream and vanilla. A little bit of smoke, char, and tobacco, surprisingly. Caramel roll. Tangy: grapefruit. Appetizing and impressively complex smell. Pours a clear, dull gold / light brass with a moderate amount of bubbles that rise at a moderate to fast pace. Light to moderate amount of head. Dry and creamy flavor. Bland but balanced and satisfying taste. Crabapple and mineral water elements. Plastic and clay in the finish. Easy to drink. Light to medium body. Smooth and somewhat frothy in the palate. Not quite as crisp and lively as ideal for a lager; a bit flat and watery (but just a bit). I know this is a mediocre review, but I actually quite enjoyed this beer, certainly more than I expected. I don’t know where I can fairly boost the rating except to give it a solid 15 in the overall category.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden. Tall fluffy head. Good retention. Grainy aroma with a note of cardboard. Light to medium body. Sweet malty taste. A winy note. Relatively low bitterness. A strange Pils. Grassy & citric hoppiness is not the case with this one.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can sample. Very clear and light golden with small quickly diminishing white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of corn sugar and some flowers. Sweetish sugary flavor, notes of flowers and honey, light bitterness. Soft carbonation, light-bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is cereal, oily grain, corn, light floral and citrus hops, maybe a touch of grassiness. Flavor is cereal, toasty grain, grass, hay, light skunk, mineral water and a touch of sulfur. Light body, fairly heavy and sharp carbonation, dry and crisp to chalky feel. Decent overall, a few off notes, but nothing too terribly intrusive.

Typical bland industrial German Pilsener. Slightly grainy, insistent, flat bitterness. Boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light gold, fairly good head/retention, soapy lace light. Tallboy can.Mealy grainy aroma with tart lemon and floral.Distict pilsner malt aroma. Slight rubbery yeast. Taste like a solid pilsner with german malt character, light lemony tartness, beery light sweetness, foamy light mouthfeel. Enjoyable pilsener.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Innocuous looking German pilsener without the fluffy white head I had expected and desired. Aromas of innocuous German pilsener that doesn’t pretend to be anything but quaffing beer. Therein lies its beauty because its flavour is innocuous, German and pilsener-y. Perfect for quaffing, perfect for me ticking the box and moving on toward my next beer, that will be my 2,000th rating. So I say goodbye and good luck to Wolters Innocuous German Pilsener.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think I’ve learned my lesson: any beer that proudly announces how it is brewed according to the German purity law is most likely gonna taste like low-grade slosh. And this is no exception, although at least it assertive! Huzzah! Have at you, you knave! , but it’s coppery metallicness sets my teeth on edge. Flavours of sweet green apples mixed with lime and, oh, what a surprise, corny vegetable oil at the back. Maybe if they gave the finger to the bullshit purity law they could brew a decent beer?

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.
