3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma of hops and grass. Although the flavor has a bitter bite to it, a good amount of malt helps balance this beer out. Moderate carbonation, and average pilsner mouthfeel. All in all, this beer is a pretty average example of the style.

Berlin Trip beer No.19. On draft. Golden body, small firm head. Low carbonation. First impression is of malt. Hops and bitterness in the middle with a long finish, bitter giving way to sweetness. Par for the course german pils.

At the end of the day it looked great and tasted okay. There was definately a quite bitter hoppiness to this beer, but on a hot day it would really hit the spot, if there was no peronni or superbock around

Bottle. Pours very pale yellow with a clear greenish hue to it. Head is medium and very foamy - like thick dishwasher foam. Surprisingly powerful aroma, though it has little besides a definite hay-like malty character. Mouthfeel is nice and round, filling my mouth well. Flavour is quite nice for the type. Some initial sweetness, leading on to quite a bitter edge. The hops are quite peppery.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Not much in terms of aroma, hops obviously, that’s pretty much it. Pours a more pale colour than other pilsners, but it still looks good. Taste is, of course mostly hops, but there’s some good malt sweetness in their to balance it out, and over-all it’s very very smooth and crisp, of course as a Pilsner should be. Light on the carbonation which I think works to its advantage. Very enjoyable on a hot day.

pretty weak aroma, especially considering this was on tap... taste and palate were much better but i would have liked this more carbonated and still stronger both in aroma and taste

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was lightly spicy hops with a mild metallic note. The hops were Saaz predominately and a light bit of DMS came along for the ride. A lightly bready nature was present through the tall moussy head on the crystal clear pale straw beer. The flavor was well bittered with a spicy and lightly grassy bittering and flavor hop and a crisp pils character. The bittering won the battle but was well matched to the malt presence. The finish was dry with lasting impressions of hops long into the aftertaste in the medium bodied beer. The carbonation level was moderate and the dryness from the hop charge kept the beer from being creamy. A nice German Pils, well bittered and no apologetic for being so.
12 ounce bottle purchased in a sixer at Aldi for $5 a six.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Traditional light-gold appearance, hop/grain aroma and standard palate. Flavour begins a little watery, with your typical hop/malt balance, but there’s a great swell of bitterness towards the end of the evolution cycle. Still quite average, but at least it finishes on a good note.
