3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Recht voreingenommen ging ich ran. Wieder ein Pilsner ! Aber dieses tendiert, Gott sei Dank, mehr in Richung Helles, als erwartet. Ein wenig buttig, dazu etwas Heu und ganz hinten ein klein wenig Vanille. Süffig ist es ohne Ende - und mild. I like. Oder so.

Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and grains. Taste of mild hops, grains, grass, spruce, acid and citrus. Refreshing but nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very malt-forward, lots of corn and hay notes. Interestingly enough I didn’t get any expected grassy skunky aromas, much sweeter smelling than I expected . The appearance is pale yellow with almost no head small head. The taste was a bit flat...I’m going to contribute this to not being fresh after shipping from Germany to the US. Hops were there but not nearly as sharp or crisp as I wanted. The finish was drier which saved this beer a bit for me. After such a sweet aroma and less than moving hop profile the finish had to be much improved for me not to call this a complete dissapointment. Thin mouthfeel but of course it is supposed to be. Not great but not terrible, would love to have a bottle closer to the source and fresh. I will try again if I have that opprotunity becuase a good pilsner is hard to beat.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear copper with an attractive off-white head and a floral cereal aroma. There is a clean pilsner malt flavor with a pretty bitter finish. Typical rheinheitsgebot.
