DATE REVIEWED: July 6, 2014... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: 4th of July yardwork and party unwinding... APPEARANCE: pale, tawny, watered-down yellow body; white head sits with an appropriate pillowy arc, then settles out as a reasonable, albeit soapy ring; sporadic, tentacle lacing... AROMA: spritzy, light pale malts suggest pilsner; some bubblegum as well, but not much more in complexity... PALATE: medium-bodied, yet light in carbonation; a pleasant, lingering aftertaste; a good partner for post-mowing deck relaxation...in essence, a slightly uncomfortable mouthfeel... TASTE: a predictably clean, taut malt assertion; biscuity at the finish; hops are clean and balancing... OVERALLL: little distinguishes this beer from the myriads of pilsners within the genre, but that is a positive in some respects; as a fourth of a sampler, hopefully not the one to be rushed towards, but that will depend on the rest of the mix...for now, serviceable and palate-cleansing... (981 characters)

A - pale golden yellow with a thick, fizzy, bubbly, white head that has little retention

S - grainy and sweet

T - grainy, bready, sweet, fainly grassy

M - light bodied, lightly carbonated

This is a very sessionable beer though a bit boring. This is better than an American lager, but it just doesn't have enough character to really represent the German Pilsener style. I won't buy this again. (396 characters)

Thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a plae golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is that familiar pilsener smell, malts, hops, some grains. Taste is malts, some hops, a bit of sweetness, kind of dry at the finish. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but just lacking a little oomph. (367 characters)
