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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(50 cl can purchased in Austria) Clear pale yellow look, white head. Weak sweet malty scent. Malty taste, a bit on the full side. A slight hint of metal just after swallowed. Medlium mouthfeel and medium bitterness. Quite ok when you get pass the scent that’s a bit boring.

Struck me as a fairly undistinguished pils I could be caught eating a doener kebab with in a German train station. Palatable minerality with normal carbonation and hop bite. Ganz typisch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Light gold with white head. Faint aromas of corn, hay, metal, and sugar. Flavor is light malt with a serious twang, almost skunky, but certainly sugary and corny. Cleans up bit in the finish with very little aftertaste. Drinkable stuff, but not my favorite thing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Super clear golden body, foamy white head, fine lacing; Small not pleasant very sugary wort like aroma, special with a very little grass; Big carbonation in soft thin sugary body with actually a very, very little hopfen bitterness; A very little very plain hopfen bitterness in finish with metallic mineral aromas. Hopfenkonig what?, terrible and super boring beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille. Couleur or-pâle, mousse s’estompe pour garder un lacet, mais laisse de belles traces sur le verre. Arôme très grains, gazon, houblons floraux. Goût de grains, très houblon floral, définitivement saaz, douce amertume, belle finale sèche, bien atténuée. Légèrement mince, effervescence modérée à forte. Je trouve qu’elle est sous-évaluée ici, c’est une très bonne pils selon moi.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one of the better pilsners that I have had. Nice malt flavor to it that wasn’t overbearing but wasn’t absent either like some of the other pilsners that I have had. Crisp finish with some hoppy flavors. The aftertaste was wonderful. Hard to describe but you can tell that this is a time-perfected recipe. The glass that I got with it (pictured) is made of crystal which really set this one off with some style points too!

I think I got this at the LCBO in Ottawa and I remember it being an assertive well done pils. Page 412 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 259 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the importer. Light golden-yellow with a large, snow white head. Given the green bottle, I was expecting some skunk in the aroma, but it was actually quite clean and fresh, with soft malt and sharp herbal hop notes. Thin, crisp body. Flavour starts quite sweet, reminding me a bit of marshmallows, some notes of orange and honey, and a quick, herbal finish. A bit sweeter than I like from a pils, but otherwise, this is a pretty decent beer.
