3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malt (grass and grain) a touch of hop spiciness. Medium to light bodied Pilsner. Malts are sweet, bready and a little grassy. Hops are mild, slightly herbal and spicy. Somewhat sweet, yet the beer is balanced by a nice dry finish. Smooth tasting Pilsner. Nice balance throughout. A little surprised by the dry finish, but a nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pale yellow with a frothy white head. Not a style I prefer but this wasn’t bad. Malt and hops to the nose with touches of spice and floral. Average mouthfeel. Crisp and clean taste. Matly notes. Refreshing drink but not remarkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer after jilting the 500ml brown bottle resides but briefly in the pilsner glass a luminous gold with a monumental creamy white head and after its demise the left over lace a thin sheet to conceal the glass. Nose has a nice crispness, clean and fresh, quite appealing to the olfactory and ocular senses; start is lightly sweet, nicely malted with the top light on the palate. Finish has a fair to middling acidity, the hops delectable in their spiciness, quite dry and lingering aftertaste, a nice thirst quenching beer for a hot late summer day in Arizona.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this at the Bier Garden in Portsmouth VA on 8-7-04. Lightly hazed blond with a small dense foamy white head. Aroma is malty but still has some nice hoppiness to it. There’s also a bit of a sulphurous note in their. Maybe this bottle was getting close to being dead?? I didn’t see any date on it, so let’s see how it tastes before passing judgment. Tastes fines! Malty notes with some light hay and sweet notes. Maybe a light hint of fruit? Seems carbonated but not as full as others I’ve had today. Finish is malt, some lighter fruit notes and spice(?). Not sure where that’s coming from, but that’s what I’m getting.

First time I had seen this German brewery in Oregon.
Comes in the pint bottle, brown euro-style. Old fashioned style label.
it pours quite livelly into my pint mug, nice enough honey golden colour with a goodly sized white head.Leaves quite a bit of lace.
I liked the aroma of this one very malty yet the hops still show through well..its very fresh.
For a pilsner the taste is much more pointed towards the malts than usual, and its good not overlly sweet, some nice hops in the back.Buttery , honeyish tasting beer.Quite remarkably smooth.
Felt very nice on the palate
Good drinkable malty lager..I liked this , it reminded me of Ayinger’s Jarhundertbier..though maybe not as excellent.

Light golden color,small white head that faded fast leaving little behind.The aroma was malty and fruity with a decent but light hop presence.The flavor was mild and nicely done.Lightly malty,lightly fruity with a good but uneventful hop taste.It’s a fairly smooth easy drinking brew,and well worth having a few around for later.
