3.5/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type - 500ml can poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance - Pours a pale, golden-straw colour, with about one finger of bright white head which fade quickly, leaving behind next to no lacing.

Smell - Pretty standard pils fare here. Cereal and grains dominate, with a faint grassy presence as well.

Taste - Cereal, grains and grass. The pleasant hop presence makes the beer a bit more bitter than I was expecting. However, it is not so bitter as to stop it from being both refreshing and drinkable.

Mouthfeel - An incredibly light body with very high carbonation makes this pils particularly crisp.

Overall - 3.5/5

on draught at Old World in Huntington Beach, downstairs in The Rathskeller. served by Monica....
appearance is the typical headstrong foam on top, clear straw liquid.
smell is dry and bitter.
taste is also dry and bitter, some hops coming through but different than what you will taste with american brews and their hops. a little tart, a little citrus(?), but overall, an average and similar compared with the other germans of this type.
but the ambience certainly affects the taste, does it not? and The Rathskeller certainly has that charming, warm appeal. definitely stop by if you're in the area; it gives me the feeling of my second home....
