3.35/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear yellow with a soapy, thin head. Aromas of fresh grain and spice. Taste begins with a grassy start, followed by a hint of bubblegum, then some french bread, and finally some grassy, soapy bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a pretty good pilsner. The bubblegum component was a bit surprising, though pleasant.

(Served in a strange)
3/9/2012 on bottle
A- This beer pours a deep straw yellow body with a lumpy off-white head that is thick and a quick sea of carbonation pops to the top. The head sticks in sheets with each sip.

S- the clean lager aroma has a slightly sweet sulfur and some pils malt note to it with a wet mash aroma in the finish. The soft noble hop note comes through in the finish as it opens.

T- The clean gentle sweetness is pale malt but there is a soft slightly sweet mineral water note in the finish. The noble hop bitterness lingers a bit in the aftertaste but stays in balance

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slightly slippery texture and a gentle fizz.

O- Nice German Pilfer that is just a touch sweeter than most but it adds a nice freshness to the malt flavor. It is well balanced but the mineral water taste tends to grow a bit to much as it opens.

3.13/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

16.9 oz brown bottle poured into my SA perfect pint glass. It has freshness dating which I like on imports. The beer is a hazy yellow with a fairly thick bone white head.

It has an aroma of some slightly euro skunk, grains and a bit of hay.

The taste is slightly sweet with some crackers, a bit of the skunk thing and grains. It is almost totally neutral with no real leaning toward the bitter or malt side of the scale.

The mouth is well balanced between some active carbonation and a bit of heft/slickness.

Not awful, not great, would really like to try next time I'm back in Austria! Note this one was so much better on draft, I'm worried that my bottle may have been poorly handled.

3.4/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

pours brilliantly clear, light yellowish gold. 3/4" of creamy foam dissipates quickly to an uneven cap before sticking around and leaving decent lacing. Nice and vibrant, lines of bubbles rising throughout.

Aroma is underwhelming, surprisingly light pilsner aroma, sort of a generic light "grain" aroma, very low spicy to slightly herbal hops, some corny/DMS, occasional sulfur notes would be fine but there's not enough other aroma here to mix it in well. Slight papery/metallic aromas as it warms suggest some age.

Flavor is a step up, bitterness is on the lighter end for the style but OK, and relatively sharp and clean. Leaves a slight sweet malt flavor on the palate after the swallow but really could use some pilsner malt flavor. DMS shows again - OK, but again wish there was more malt flavor here. A little sweet and slick in the finish, not really that dry at all. Occasional fruity notes seem to be from yeast on top of a slightly lemony hop flavor - the latter is welcome, the former is out of place.

Nice mouthfeel, on the lighter side of medium, fairly expressive medium high carb, no alcohol warming or astringency.

Drinkable example that needs a shot of pilsner malt and should finish dry. Might have been better a couple months ago but there's no bottled on/best by date here...

2.8/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear light yellowish gold color with a half inch ivory/white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is dominated by grainy pilsner malt, biscuit, and perfume like hops. A hint of orange citrus is present, and alcohol.
Diacetyl emerges as it warms.

Flavor reveals more citrus, with a distinct lemony sourness. The crisp cracker malt backbone is refreshing, with a slightly dry finish. Hints of cooked corn detract from the profile.

Body is medium light, with moderately high carbonation. There's a but of astringency evident.

Overall a decent beer, but too fruity hop for the style. Not one I'll revisit.
