Russo's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, - JAN 9, 2013
Clear yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet grainy herbal hops notes. Flavor is sweet malt and some bitterness, medium bodied with soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is quite bitter.

jenznett (194) - GERMANY - AUG 19, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Blassgoldenes Bier mit leicht cremigem Schaum im Glas. Leicht süßliche Malzaromen im Duft. Im Antrunk weich, gleich mit schöner Hopfennote. Dann kräftiger würzig und leicht bitter, später mehr durchdringende Bitterkeit. (Flasche aus Bischberg)

Quack-Duck (9533) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2017
draught at the brewery. Clear pale yellow with a tall and creamy white head, like beaten eggwhite. Grassy-resiny hop aroma. Light-bodied, clean and crisp with a pleasant malty base and good grassy, resiny hops. Lingering hoppy finish.

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 15, 2017
clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma had malt and grassy notes. Flavor was clean and fresh with noble hops. Finished dry and bitter. Very solid work.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This softly bready Pils shares flowers and white pepper before herbal bitterness peeks through the light honeyed sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the shiny golden.
-At first, this one appeared a tad underhopped, but it quickly becomes apparent that the flavour dosage is meant to keep you interested when you are reaching the last half of your pint. Hop build-up is quite pleasant.
-This is a very classy brew.
-Mouthfeel is supple and silky.
-Yet another smashing, elegant lager from Zur Sonne.

popiela (1006) - Poznañ, POLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Butelka 0,5l. Aromat przyjemny, słodowo-chmielowy. W smaku podobnie, rześko, przyjemnie nachmielowe. Goryczka do umiarkowanej.

biir (1594) - Berlin, - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle - Clear golden color, a rather malty pils with slight notes of hops. Finish could be more better. Strong body though, nice,

Leighton (22302) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Freising during day 3 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2015. Pours clear, pale yellow with a fluffy white head. Dry cereal, some light hay bitterness, floral notes, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Tasty finish, more cereal, biscuity pale malts, slight bitterness. Very enjoyable.

nealblind (1976) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap Bamberg. Clear gold Amber. Aroma grapes grass punchy aroma with lots of promise. Grassy flavor is a slight let down but the brewer’s raw talent is clear. I just wish they used better hops.

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
On bottles at Sonnen Bischberg. Clear gold lasting white head. Toast bread aroma. Fullish in mouth sweetish then good noble floral hops. Excellent clean characterful German pils. Lemon curd. Just an excellent pilsner. Lemon . Really good.

jfb (6623) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
(bottle) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops, hay and caramel, slightly buttery, with a light hint of cinnamon and grass. flavour is mostly the same, raisins, herbal hops and butter, slightly green and yeasty, with some light notes of spruce in the light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.
