500ml green bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Fridge temp, probably in the vicinity of 40. Date on the bottle appears to be 06 14. Friend from work brought one back from a business trip to Germany.
Pours very clear, very light yellow, with a medium sized, quickly dissipating head, and lots of fizzy carbonation. Smell blasts you with skunkiness when you open the bottle and start to pour. This fades somewhat, and lets me smell grassy, yeasty lager. Something slightly spicy about it. if it wasn't for the skunk blast, I'd give it a better aroma score.
Taste is kind of pleasant. Nice bitter, slow aftertaste, finishes very slow. Sweetness, a hint of honey, up front. Slight lemon-rind bitterness. More of that grassy character.
Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Overall, I like it. I'm going to have to follow through on this half-assed plan to try more pilsners and see what they're all about.
