3.19/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Format: a standard 330mL green bottle with a pretty decent macro label.

Appearance: a clear light amber colour with light visible carbonation. A finger of white head that drops to a thin film.

Aroma: a fairly light aroma of some decent grains with light grass hops. Okay.

Taste: some bread malts with the grass hops and clean grains. Okay, but not amazing.

Aftertaste: some sweetness from the grains coming through with the light hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: a light - and a little bit thin - body with a moderate carbonation.

Overall: this is pretty much just a lager, but one that is AU$72 for a case of 24. completely unacceptable for a beer that really isn't all that good or exciting.

The worst pilsner in the world.

A: Lite-yellow, clear, urine like.

S: Lite-Sweetness, hoppy, grassy, fresh, alcohol.

T: Lite malts, refreshing, clear and smooth, hoppy, grassy, and skunky.

M: Lite, thin, refreshing, crisp, clean, lite carbonation.

Overall: I think it is too skunky and thin for me. It is a decent beer, but I wouldn't drink it regularly because the hop profile is too skunky and the beer is too thin.

P.S.: I'm not sure if the skunkiness is attributable to the green glass bottle or hops.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new one to me, acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a miniature Victorian carriage adorned pint glass.

A - It pours a nice clear straw yellow colored body, lots of active carbonation, excellent clarity, and one finger of frothy white foam head. Looks very nice for the style. 4

S - The aroma is grassy, herbal, & hoppy, with a good biscuity malt presence. Nothing extraordinary happening, but very hoppy and aromatic for the style. 3.5

T - The taste follows the nose - crisp, bready, malty, with good grassy / zesty / herbal hop presence. 4

M - The feel is crisp, clean, and dry on the finish. Mildly refreshing and easy to drink, I'd say. Medium bodied with good carbonation. 3.5

Overall, an interesting German pilsener, definitely one of the more memorable beers in this style category that I've had in recent memory. Recommended for sure.
