2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pale golden, mid-sized firm, lasting head, a bit hazy; very shy nose: traces of hops, malts and cardboard too; very soft sweetish start;quite full bodied; nearly no aromatic hops detectable in the soft, sweetish-malty finish; more a quite good Hell than a true Pils........

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Fässla in Bamberg. Golden with a nice head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy with notes of straw and newly harvested hay. The flavour has nice hoppy notes with flower, fruit and newly harvested hay and a smooth touch of caramel. It’s very charming - and the atmosphere adds to the overall impression.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Fully celar gold; small, very fast dwindling transparant white head. Sweet, very malty nose, nearly honey-ish. Estery! Dry-opening Pilsner with (very) far away hops, discreetly German. Light but with a certain grist-body. Feels more bodied than I estimate it probably. Not very outstanding. Good but nowhere outstanding. Less hoppy character than the Lager!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Bamberg.
Clear, golden yellow color with fine, thick white head. Strong aroma of hops and fruit, with lots of malt as well. Very nice nose. Flavor of hops first, than with fruity taste and decent malt, with a hint of thick sweetness. Finish first hoppy, then malt, with the bitterness lingering as well. Perfectly balanced beer. Light, but enough malt to satisfy. An excellent beer, and the bottled is almost as good as the draft version.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Impressions from the schwemm:
-A ring of foam stands above the transparent golden.
-Dry hay and herbal supporting hops make up most of the flavor profile.
-Very clean and lean-bodied, very drinkable.
-Aroma and flavor are consequential, no surprises here.
-Herbal hop bitterness lingers amicably.
On tap a couple of times at the brewery.
