Short and sweet:

Party beer, and I would walk past it if it wasn't on sale.

This beer sampled as part of a tasting tonight. You kinda forget how nice this beer is in its simplicity and elegance.

Fairly standard when compared to other authentic German pilsners. What stands out is a very rich boquet of floral hops that hint toward fruitiness, herbal notes, and a nectar-like character that accents the sweet pilsner malt flavors and aromas. Light sulfers give the beer teeth, but that floral hop aroma and flavor supresses any would-be match stick sulfery character. Round and moderately creamy with a mild hint of grain astringency. Finishes crisp and with a balanced hop-malt lingering. A terrific small beer.

Time for another lager. I am going to try to lose weight by drinking more beer and eating less. Is that plausible? I dunno. It sounds fun though!

Appearance (3.25) : Foamy white, almost artificial looking (like school glue or marshmallow creme) head. It's sitting at about 2 fingers. Body is a transparent pale straw color with lots of clarity.

Aroma (2) : I can smell it from here, the vegetal smells and rotten garbage corn. BUT, let's see what it's like up close...

Musty corn, maybe some distant barley. But mostly just musty corn.

Taste (2.75) : Marginally better than the aroma, but the first word that comes to mind is "funky". First taste is washed out corn, then some musty barley notes, and finally it ends with a semi-dry corn/faint hop taste. I really don't have much more to say.

Mouthfeel (2.75) : Stabbing carbonation with a very light creamy underbelly. Light bodied as to be expected. Ends semi-dry.

Overall (2.58) : It's not a bad beer, and it's not something I'd avoid like the plague. I just would probably never drink it again unless it was offered to me for free. It's just got this linear cornfest thing going on, with diaper and musty barley. Can't shake it.
