3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 33cl bottle, best before May 2009, drank Jan 2009.
Poured into a Veltins Pilsner tulip (twice).
One of the clearest pilsners I’ve ever seen, very, very pale yellow, not even enough colour to call it golden. The fine looking white head that sat on top after each pour soon faded to lacing and wisps, shame.
Odourless, and I mean odourless. Even as the beer warms, no aromas could be found, gets my standard pilsner/lager score of 3.
Typical Bavarian pilsner feel and taste, clean, crisp and refreshing. Pilsners are not supposed to have strong flavours that knock you about and this one is no different. It does however keep it’s charactor throughout the drink, I mean it doesn’t go all metalic, or tinny and the last sip is as good as the first with no nasty aftertaste.
One of the better Pilsners I’ve had.

Bevuta alla spina, forse era un pò troppo fredda, e un pò troppo gasata, ma nel complesso mi è sembrata una buona pils.

Blonde colour. Lots of fizz. Minty, slightly spicy aroma. Light body. Flavour shows spicy hop notes and moderate bitterness. Quick rather than dry finish. More northern than Bavarian in style.

Tap. Drank a fair amount of this stuff in a hostel in Munich. Not too impressionable. I remember more how the English Bartender would not stop talking about how it had never been "put into a tin".

[massive amounts consumed throughout Munich] Very clear, yellow body. Head is dense, very long-lasting. Aroma of slight sulfur, mildly bitter. Flavors are light, pale malts, more sulfur/yeast character and a bit of residual sweetness. Finishes with a nice crisp bitterness.

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear pale golden with a tall and frothy white head. Lightly malty nose with floral accents. Medium body with a clean malt base and a fairly bitter finish. Very clean. Somebody at the gathering claimed that due to the use of hops this was actually a Bohemian Pilsener. 290608
