2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just an unremarkable beer from the start. The only Kulmbacher beer I’ve had was their eisbock, and it was outstanding. I wasn’t hoping too much from this one, and there just wasn’t anything here to really enjoy.
The beer pours out a standard golden yellow color, clear with a sudsy 2" thick white head. The head melted away just as quick as it poured. I’ve seen heads on a pour of Coke stay longer than this! Aroma is minimalistic. Light notes of grains, citrus with a bit of honey. Thankfully, nothing foul crept into this beer. Flavor is lightly hopped, dry with just a touch of malts (reminded me of corn). I’m sure there are worst offenders out there, but this one just didn’t grab me like I hoped. Still, it was refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with minimal white head. Very effervescent but not much aroma other than a little malt and hops. Maybe a little grass. Flavor is crisp and clean. A fine beer.

I’m always up for a good pilsener and this one definitely hit the spot. It poured a golden yhellow with a huge white head. Plenty of carbonation. Nice skunky smell. Very smooth and crisp. Not as flavorfull as the aroma would lead make you think.

On tap at Novare Res.
Pours golden clear color with a big white head. Aroma is light malt, slightly hoppy. Flavor is really crisp, good carbonation, nice and clean drinking. This beer is as soft as silk and is a pleasure going down.
