Zlotta (2516) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
Sampled from tap at El Drapaire de la Cervesa Artesana. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-floral and quite grassy aroma of fresh grass, citrus and some grains. A bit sweetish, slightly grainy, fruity-grassy and a bit floral taste of fresh grass, citrus and some grains, followed by a short, moderately bitter, quite grassy finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

Cristobal37 (884) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2016
Strong hoppy pasteurized lager aroma. Really fine balance of malt n hops. Fantastic German pils, easily one of the best Ive had yet. Prefer the others from Weihenstephan but have to hand it to them this is a great example of the style.
