maslupulos' rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
maslupulos (39) - North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2013
Beautiful clear, golden pour with ample creamy head. Subtle aroma of bread, grain and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Smells just like good German beer should. Drinks clean, crisp, and refreshing. Begins moderately sweet with lightly toasted malts and finishes crisp and slightly bitter with a nice herbal hop. A Little hit of spiciness and lemon zest. Great pilsner and makes me want to go back to Germany. I wish well-made lagers would get rated higher on this site.

330mL bottle from Vintage Wines. Aromas of pils malt, grainy, white bread, grassy hops. Clear light gold with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, grainy, grassy. Light-medium bodied.

A straw coloured pour with a fast fading white head; sweet herbal aroma; sweet grainy body with a light herbal bitterness; and a clean refreshing finish.

Cristobal37 (1287) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Vom Flasche from getranke Fritze, Wurzburg. Pale yella, dissipating head. Botter slightly skunky. Nice bitterness but more leaning towards honey, bready and grassy. Nice German pils with a long bitter palate. Enjoyable, but not particularly special.

From a 12 oz bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Reserve glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, straw, pale malt. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, pale malt, straw hops, minerals, wheat, slight herbal bitterness. Overall full bodied with somewhat rich and bitter finish.

SVD (2268) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle at home, Golden clear beer, small head. Aroma is grain, malt. Taste is the same, sweet. average pilsener, could be better.

Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of malt and touches of hops. Sweetish, estery and malty flavour with bitter notes of hops. Estery and malty aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation and good mouthfeel. Reasonable for the style and quite refreshing but not top notch.

DCLawyer (2931) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle->footed pilsner. Lite gold with small frothy white head. Usual pilsner hops and grains, with some lemon and cracker. Not too corny. Decent for what it is.
