3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw coloured with a rocky, white head. Floral/grassy aroma with moderate carbonation. Clean, hoppy taste with a long, dry finish. A very good German pils.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Hmm, furrowed brow time. This very pale brew can’t decide if it wants to be Warsteiner or Pilsner Urquell when it grows up. Better than the former, well behind the latter. Twelve ounce bottle from Aldi. Wonder if this tastes the same as the version sold in Germany, or if it the taste has been "adjusted for the American market" (i.e., dumbed down).

Well done plenty of malt and hops for a crisp assertive pils. Bought at the Ottawa LCBO and there was German man there telling it was the best beer in the world. I chose not to believe him. Page 492 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Bottle from Aldi. Strong hop aroma. Possibly too much Sazz hops. The appearance is a pale yellow. The flavor was metallic, honey, with some notes of cherry set against a woody grainy background. Palate was thin and carbonation was harsh. Not a beer that I would buy again with my own money if I could help it.

My gf’s dad bought a 12 pack of this stuff from Aldis when he was in for a visit and graciously left us the remainder.....I kinda wish he hadn’t. A stale, papery-thin, stale-ly bitter rendition of a pilsner, with little backing malt and no redeeming hop crispness or flavor. About the lightest I have ever seen any beer outside of a macro.

Light yellow colored, little white head. Crispy German aroma with hops and malty lemon. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is richer with also good hops and lemony tones. Basic pilsner, slightly boring though.
