On draught at the Würzburger Bahnhof. Sucked this down with a bratwurst at a little concession area while waiting for our connecting train. It served its purpose well enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly cloudy pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of wet hay. Taste was exactly what I expect from classic german pils, nothing more, nothing less. Very crisp all the way but not very tasty, crisp malts, full of those crisp german hops, smooth but lively carbo, short finish. Well put together but in the land of the refreshing classic german pils, this one stands out like a grey suit at a lawyer convention.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Any first impressions?
-A thin veil of foam barely covers the pale straw yellow.
-Biscuity, hay-like malt blends with the citrusy noble hop into a harmonious union.
-Crispy haystacks and milky sweetness balance out the noble hop caress.
-The lean and well-constructed maltiness is very clean, perhaps too much so, and the carbonation is quite lively and prickly.
What if you dig deeper?
-There is quite a bit of hop flavor, but the bitterness is subtle, offering faint grass and resins.
-The overall flavor profile is straightforward, but effective.
-The beer loses character as the pint is downed.
-This is a very drinkable, generic pilsner with just enough flavor and substance to keep you interested for a while.
On tap at d.b.a., Manhattan.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 11.2 oz. slender long neck green bottle with no bottled/freshness date.
Poured a clear pale straw golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
Aromas of spicy herbal hops and sweet grainy, pilsener malts, a nice simple aroma.
Moderate carbonation and a crisp, dryish, smooth light bodied mouthfeel, exactly what you expect from a pilsener.
Good pilsener taste, spicy, herbal hops that provide a pleasant bite, a little lemon honey flavor, sweet pilsener malt with a touch of graininess and a dry spicy and grainy finish, good drinkability, very quaffable.
This a great everyday pilsener, tasty and balanced, highly drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 Got this one in Würzburg at Cafe am Dom. Poured a clear golden color with a medium and bubbly head. Nose of hops greets you with a litle malt and citurs. Nice bitter finish. This is a very well balanced and hightly enjoyable pilsener.

Bottle (donated by MoritzF): Pale golden coloured, small white lacing layer; sweet-malty, dardboardy, but also aromatic hoppy nose; sweet-bitter flavour, a bit sticky; short sweet-bitter finish. Not really a great pleasure............Typical german "Premium" stuff !

(bottle) Clear pale golden colour with a bubbling foamy medium head. Aromatic herbal and slightly grassy hops aroma with a malty and slightly citrusy background. Bitter flavour, light to medium body, crispy carbonated mouthfeel. Dry, hops-accented taste with light-grainy malt; dry and bitter herbal hoppy finish. Well-made Franconian Pilsener.

Definitely good by pilsener standards. Honey aftertaste is quite pleasant. Carbonation was a bit on the heavy side, though.

Light fruity and grassy hoppy aroma. Light cloudy, golden color. Fruity hoppy and bitter flavor. Dry bitter finish. Nice hoppy flavor, unspectacular aroma. All in all a good pils.
