3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle is labeled Premium Bavarian Beer Pilsner Style. The bottle in the pic just says Pilsner. This brew pours a slightly tawnied pale yellow w/ a medium sized, spattered creamy white froth. Head retention is minimal but receds leaving a full canopy and a sticky white lace. Aromas of aged malts and herbs. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers creating an almost creamy texture w/ a tad of cotton fiber. Definately European w/ a musty aged malt character accompanied by a moderate hop citrus rind spice. The finish is bittered nicely leaving mild asprin burn on the palate.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light honey color and might have the least color of any beer I have seen. No head except for a small ring around the glass. Aroma is grassy and is not pronounced. Flavor is slightly tart and almost equally sweet. I kept waiting for any real flavor to show up but then the glass was empty and so were my taste buds. It is, however, light and easy to drink.

yeah, if this is a ’classic german pilsener’, then the German’s should stick to Hefe-weissen, mai-bock, and the like and leave the pilsners alone.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours paler-than-urine yellow with a large fizzy white head with very little retension. The aroma has smooth pale malts, light grass and butter. Light mouthfeel that is fairly slick with lots of sharp carbonation. Starts off with pale malt that quickly gets overtaken by spicy hops, unfortunately there is some skunk in there as well. There is also some granola and grassiness. A fair pils.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Pour is a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pure skunk. Flavor is light grains and very dry. Kinda a soapy feeling to this one. Nothing really going on here just got it to fill out the mis a six.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden color with almost no head to speak of. Mostly grassy aroma with hints of skunkiness. Sure enough this beer tastes a little skunky. There’s some bitterness and straw like flavors but really there’s not much going on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden with a thick white head. Great lacing. Aroma of hay, hops and some sweet malts. Smooth, slightly sweet malty flavor with a crisp finish. This is how a lager should taste. Extra points for the memories - this was I believe the first imported beer that I ever had. Enjoyed at Resi’s Bierstube many years ago.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle . Poured a straw color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Heavy hoppy grass aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium hoppy grass flavor with a medium bitter dry finish. This beer did not meet my expectations.
