Light honey tones with a nice soapy but looser head on top. Color is rather pale, not too rich with almost no visible carbonation whatsoever. Aroma is a sour/metal hoppiness. Faint adjunct-like maltiness; huskiness, vegetably. Not great. Taste is balanced, no side overpowers the other, but this makes for a sort of boring beer, lacking character. Faint finish on cracker malts, hops bitterness is quite low. Mouthfeel is right on target, not too thin in body, good pilsen structure.
Overall, a pretty boring German lager. Not much character to it, flavors are subdued to the point of being almost unnoticeable. Compared to the Paulaner pils I reviewed yesterday, this is a German Budweiser.
