Ernest (7438) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (lemon oil, lemon cleaner, flowers, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather one-dimensional nose, huge dose of lemon oily hops, which even have some west coast US floor cleaner character. Gets a bit tiring quickly, but fairly clean and enjoyable. More bitter than the 42 IBU might make you think, and blinded I would honestly think this was made in the States. India Pale Lager, anyone? One of the more unusual breweries in Franconia...this and Smokey George seem to be aimed more at American beer geeks than Germans.

Aroma; pale malts, dough, grain, grass. Look; pearl head, clear pale golden body. Taste; hops, apple peel, bread, grass, fruit, malts - malted finish, but some hops around. Feel; normal. Overall; went well with my pea and flesh soup and kabanoss sausage. Pils, according to label, yes it is a pilsener. [33cl.btl 5.5% BB23.09.16]

ALIBALI (969) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2016
Geruch klar untergärig pilsig. Optisch klassisch, daher mit viel guten Willen die 3. Der Trunk dann grasig floral mit einen kleinen Kräutereinschlag, der auch ein wenig an belgische Flavours denken läßt. Der Nachtrunk sehr rund und angenehm hopfenbitter. Klasse Pils. 0,33l Flasche direkt aus der Fränkischen, von Ratty, für ungefähr einen Euro.

Lovely crisp fresh malty beer, lots of grains. Light palate, drinkability very high. Super sessionable. Nice fresh bitter finish. Very decent pilsner.

Schön herbes stark hopfenbetontes Pils. Optisch sind sowohl Flasche als auch Bier an sich sehr ansprechend.

Moravius (1153) - Beijing, CHINA - MAY 18, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Flasche (50 cl) von Grabsch, Berlin. - Goldgelb, blank; schwacher Schaum. - In der Nase nur schwache, ein klein wenig abgestandene fruchtige Herbe. - Im Antrunk gut grasige, schwach harzige Herbe, dazu schwache süßlich-fruchtige Noten. Durchschnittlich rezent. Im Abgang gut grasig herb. Trockener, etwas harter und bitterer Nachtrunk. - Bitter ist das schon, wenn auch nicht allzu sehr - aber wo sind die versprochenen „großen Mengen Aromahopfen“? Das ist kaum aromatischer gehopft als ein besseres süddeutsches Pilsener, und der großmäuligen Ankündigung auf dem Etikett „Die endgültige Antwort auf die Frage nach dem wahren Pils“ wird es in keiner Weise gerecht. Ein weiterer Beweis dafür, daß man bei Rittmayer nicht brauen kann.
