I got this beer in a six-pack from good friends that visited Germany. THAT what friends are for!

Clear golden beer with a foamy, white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Caramel malt, pilsner malt, honey, bread, floral notes and grain.
Taste: Malty, both caramel and pilsnermalt. Sweet grainy malt. Crisp and clean. Floral, grass and herbs.
Mouth: Medium to light body. A dry an light bitter ending.

Easy drinking beer that I really like a hot day!

Hartmann-Bräu "Hartmann Edelpils"
,5L brown glass bottle, "Mindestens haltbar bis: 17.03.18F" and sampled on 25.09.17
8,50€/sixpack at the Brauerei Gasthof

Look: Fingerprint-through-the-glass clarity in a straw gold body beneath a full head of frothy bright white that holds remarkably well and leaves some very nice lacing behind.
Smell: Grainy, straw-like malt and lightly herbal and leafy hops greet you in the nose.
Taste: Solidly bitter to be sure, the sweetish grainy malt is easily balanced, and spicy, grassy, floral, tea-like, and herbal hop notes linger in the dry, bitter finish.
Feel: Medium-light in body and gently crisp across the palate.
Overall: A surprisingly hoppy and bitter pils. It's got good balance with some sweetish malt upfront, hops across the middle and into the lingering finish, and a good punch of drying bitterness that lingers - but it somehow lacks the charm of their other beers.

From the tap at the brewery, it pours a golden color with a nice head. Lacing as you enjoy it. Nose gets hops and malt, followed by the mouth getting the nice hop bitterness with the malt flavor.

Aroma: Typical Pils malts, quite strong, but not much else, pleasant and aromatic.
Front: Bitterness and tartness with some sweet Pils malt in the background, which is unusual I find.
Mid: More bitterness and tartness with lots of Pils sweetness.
Back: Again, more of the above with sweet Pils malts intermingled.
Aftertaste: same as the taste, sweet Pils malts and bitterness and tartness.

Mouthfeel: Same as above for the regular Pils.

Overall: mmm, it's hard to rate. Tastes good, but nothing special. Extremely pleasant and balanced, but I find it's leaning more toward the bitter side vs. malt sweetness, which I like. 4 of 5.

500ml bottle into .3l bierkrug in Bamberg, Franconia (NOT Bavaria!), Germany. Reviewed live.

A: Four finger head of no cream, decent thickness, and average retention. Clear yellow colour.

Sm: Clean barley. Pretty bad.

T: Just a barley body with a slight stale cream finish. Bleh. Simple and pretty crap. Unbalanced and poorly built. The finish is awful, and unfortunately it lingers.

Mf: Too smooth and too wet.

Dr: Average ABV, crap quality, great price. This is what we call a "student beer".

A little sweeter then most pils. It's a simple pale malt sweetness that tastes like it held a stew of spring flowers. Lightly sweet floral aroma is just slightly grassy. Fine bright white head faded quickly to a thin ring. Streams of tiny bubbles rise through the pale straw colored beer. Light, slightly watery mouthfeel. Not bad, not good, just o.k.
