3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow colored beer with a small lacing head. Aroma of floral hop and some pale malt. Flavour of hop, some malt and bottom-yeast. Smooth mouthfeel with a nice hop, but not a "hopfenkönig"...Pleasant dry aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Clear pale yellow, large and creamy head. Intensive hoppy nose. Crisp, fresh and pleasantly hoppy (grassy) with a malty background. There is a very very shy fruity sourness present.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big shiny coarseish offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with carbonation. Grassy, peppery hop aroma with notes of straw and rye. Dry grassy, peppery taste with a light, subtle sweetness. Straw and rye aftertaste with perhaps a little acidity. Clean and harmonic. Traces of sulphur. Nice, but given the name they could use more hops. (0.2l draft at dahoam im bruderhof, Salzburg.)

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Probably one of the worst beers in Austria. Doesn’t smell too good, like Carlsberg & Co. TAste quite clean, maybe some hops. Harsh. Very pale body, citrus colour.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 330ml bottle. Shared by Tranquillity - thanks! (3:2:3:2:5=1.5)
Pale gold, thin head. Grassy, lime and lemonade aroma. Taste is that of a harsh and a drying hop extract.
Rerate: Tap (Tuulensuu, Tampere) (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Sweet, mashy, and very grainy aroma. This is a better Pils than the usually very solid Plevna one we had earlier (could be down to time-of-day "inflation" though) - it’s more pils-like for a start. Fresh certainly. Lightish, slightly hazy, nice head - tight and white. Finish has nice grains that Anna in particular likes. Phil does get something metallic from it. So it’s almost a complete change from the bottle we had, but still not perfect.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from can. Rich golden color with slight head. Hoppy, metallic smell. Proclaims to be the King of Hops, and that’s what you get. Oh, plus the slight tang of metal, but that could be from the can. I’ve had this out of the bottle as well, but I can’t recall whether or not it was better. Not a terrible beer, but nothing to write home about.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml can from a Billa Supermarket in Wien. Straw coloured body topped by a white foamy head. Hay and grass to the nose. Some candy sweetness in the taste with fruity hops in a rather short tail. Moderate mouthfeel (04.12.2007).

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical low grade pilsner. Poured to a light gold with a little skim of a white head and little lacing. Nose was faint and grainy, mouthfeel flat, and the flavor followed the nose. To top it off was a short stale finish.
Pass on this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
canned, bought in vienna, so reasonably fresh. golden, light grassy aroma, a bit thin, modest bitterness, pretty boring

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Clear yellow with a small white head. Undistinguished aroma with some grassiness and slightly skunky. Light body, somewhat watery, medium carbonation. Flavor was unremarkable as well, with a very dry, bitter finish. Even though this was oxidized, I don’t think it would be dramatically better fresh. Disappointing.
