4.51/5  rDev +21.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a pils style glass.

Crystal clear, and shimmering dark lemon and green looking. Plentiful but not excessive carbonation. Soapy white head, very bright and bleach white color with thick rings of spider lacing and sheets crawling down the glass. Big fat thick soapy white collar on the edges also. Just impressive all around.

Great herbal hop and wonderful lemon notes of citrus. Great bakery bread action of white bread and slightly warm sensing. Real impressive.

Palate just sings. Big notes of citrus and juiced body. Bakery malts and an almost citrus to tropical freshness on the beer. Clean finish with a mimosa and champagne like feel, but with far less carbonation and more moderate. Good thick coating everywhere, large lingering controlled hop aftertaste that goes on and on.

A fantastic brew.

0.33 Litre bottle, well in date when opened in the South of France on 13th Sep 2013: I'd brought it over the Alps with me and few other beers to sip while in the sun.

Pale straw colour with a head that dissipated as I poured the beer into a hotel owned tumbler. A white collar just sat there as I supped the beer.

Dry, grainy and hoppy: a standard and well make German Pilsner with the typical clean and crisp taste you'd expect. Nothing cleaver or different, just a good refreshing beer and ideal in warm weather. Gets my usual score of three for a non-smelling lager/pilsner and loses points for the no show of the head.

3.8/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bright yellow golden color with a fluffy one finger head with medium retention and leaving traces.
Aroma of grassy and floral hops and bread malt.
Predominant flavor of grassy hops with elegant malt sweetness. Random hints of minerals. Starts raw and then smooths up. Dry and bitter aftertaste, impelling you to another sip.
Medium body with good carbonation of tiny bubbles and a spicy feeling.
Perfect executed Pilsner; this is what you should expect from the style. Still with character: hoppy and malty, but with low sweetness levels.

A clear golden beer with lots of carbonation. The head leaves rings on the glass.

Smell of resinous, raw hops, German and like hopextract has been used. Malt comes in second and is light and fresh.

Taste is bitter with a great hoppiness, resinous and a bit raw. The yeast profile is pretty clean and leaves little taste, except for a light sulfur taste. The malt is grainy and husky.

Very pale golden coor; short head, fading slowly. The smell is very grainy, dry and grassy. The taste shows a light round maltiness and a powerful hoppiness, dry and thick, quite enjoyable. Maybe it gets too grainy after a while. The mouthfeel was satisfying with the hoppiness being thicker than bitter, which I appreciated for a pilsner. A bit creamy too.
