Pours very light yellow with an average amount of head, doesn't stick around for all that long though. No distinct aroma from it, smooth to drink, slight bitterness on the finish.

Bottle from Sully's
Crystal clear light golden color with a good sized moderate lasting frothy white head. Loads of DMS when this was first cracked then the skunk seemed to slowly crawl away. Sweet bready pils with a hint of ash and aluminum foil. Light floral hop aromas as well as hints of light pomme fruit. The flavor is light bready pils, earthy spicy hop, a bit of sulfur and metal with some sweet fruit. Uhm yeah, I'm not going to finish this bottle.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L507.04.2014. AROMA: grainy aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: very pale straw color and translucent. average white head with low retention. TASTE: slight grainy sweet flavour with medium-low bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours. PALATE: light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a bulk german pilsener that lacks noble hops presence.
