Very pale, light straw color to the body and topped with a soft, foamy white head. Crisp, bright light grain notes in the aroma; dry grass. Slightly herbal flavor with a rather mild, light grain taste with a fairly bold hop bitterness. Light, crisp, clean and dry mouthfeel.

Nothing extraordinary as far as things go yet definitely drinkable and refreshing. Classic light malt and hop bitterness combination that will certainly satisfy folks looking for this traditional style of lager.

Poured into my Pilsner Urquell footed pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden with a creamy three finger head that leaves mild lacing behind. Had aromas of grainy cereal, sweet honey, and grassy hops. The mouth looses those grassy hops and enhances the sweet honey. Grainy and sweet all the way down, and a touch of bitterness finishes it up. This beer just slides down the throat with ease, and the honey aftertaste lingers for a long while.

Overall: A little less hoppy than I expect out of a german pilsner, but that did not ruin this excellent beer for me.

A great beer from a legendary brewery!

Pours a faint straw blonde with chalk white head that leaves very slowly.

Aroma leans more toward malt than hops. A slight wet dog and sweet corn impression.

Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and refreshing,

Tastes very similar to the aroma. Malty with a faint dank hop note. Some corn notes at the back of the tongue.

Final thoughts...a very tasty beer, but I would prefer a better balanced malt/hop character. Still an above average example for the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured two fingers of head on a clear, light straw colored body.
The aroma is a good dry grain with a touch of lemon.
The taste is quite smooth. A little mild bitterness throughout. It has a nice balance.
The texture is a little fizzy with a light body.
Enjoyable and easy drinking.

4.11/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: White cotton foam that thins out into a delicate layer of lacing; almost like a lid sealing the rest of the flavors.

Smell: Lemon and a bit of caramel. Subtle and fresh. Fairly citrusy overall.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sticky caramel biscuit-ness with a hint of lemon soap. Very sudsy and clean. Maybe a tad sticky in the finish, but it's fantastic overall.

Overall Drinkability: Excellent balance for a pilsener; hit's all the right notes.
