2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wurzburg station drunk waiting for the train. Pale gold lasting white head. It’s a little nettle and ascetic on the hop. Lemon sharp. It’s ok quite ascetic though which reduces the drinkability.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: poured from a mini-keg in my Edgestar kegerator; crystal clear pale straw with two fingers of electric white head, with generous lacing. Aroma: clean and bright, with crisp, peppery pilsner malts over a perfectly balanced grassy/floral hop profile. Taste: slightly sweetened saltine crackers, a bit of black pepper, slightly herbal (grassy) notes. Finish: clean, crisp, a little spicy, with lingering peppery zing. Notes: Great pilsner. Keg goes very quickly during baseball season. Sessionable, good body. Bought because it was one of the cheapest mini-kegs at Perfect Pour, and glad of it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. No nose, hazy light yellow-golden body with a bright white head. Medium body smooth with low bitter and stale, tangy grain, light noble hops and a fresh bit of woodsiness. Not the cleanest.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just enough hops to add bitterness & some interesting spice notes in the finish. Grassy, and a little grainy. Malts are smooth & in the background. The definition of a session beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 Draught@Gasthaus Roter Ochse, Seßlach Jul2013. Decent enough pale thirst-quencher, bot not much of a match against (or after) the 2nd Hausbier on tap, Seßlacher Kommunbrauhaus’ Hausbräu. Still feels artisanal with some character, but more of a gentle sessioning Helles than a Pilsner, even by Bavarian standards.

Rich and lingering Noble hops accentuate this pils. Middle notes are a touch sweet, although it still pulls off the crisp finish of a Bavarian pilsner. Full mouthfeel. An excellent Bavarian pilsner.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Draft. This is a great German lager and one of my all time favorites. Pours light yellow with thin white head. Great flavor for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
