look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle of 330 ml.
The colour is pale golden yellow, with a one finger head that quickly becomes half finger but that half stays for a long long time. No bubbles rising to the top.

Aroma is of malts, a slighty grassy.

Nice bitter taste, with a slighty more bitter aftertaste.

Medium thickness on the body and as much carbonation as needed.

Overall, quite good, slighty above your average pilsener.

Picked up a case of this brew yesterday, on sale and came with a cool opener for free, so why not. Beautiful fall Saturday outside, crisp bier time
Poured into my goblet, a really nice blight golden biscuit tone, beautiful light head, thick, rocky and nice. Great carbonation as well, lots of activity in the glass. Picture-perfect Pils.
Onto aroma tart lemon, musty graininess, llight pepperiness, hops extremly subdued, but a bit restrained. Its very traditional, but in comparison with Bitburger, it lacks a bit of depth.
Flavor is also good, but again restrained. Upfront, tart, lively, citrus, ends with a pepperiness. Very subdued hoppiness, the bittering factor is definatly there on the finish.
Mouthfeel is another great factor for this beer, crisp, light, spiced, and appetizing. I found it good, but a little too restrained. After recently having Prima Pils again after a year, its really time for some of these breweries to really step up there game. Average at best, but at least its not too bad(got a case to go)!

A- Clear gold with a white, fluffy head that fades but sticks nicely to the glass all the way down.

S- Some malty notes with lots of hops spice. There is also a slight floral and hay aroma present.

T- Light sweetness from malts starts it off. Spiciness from the hops come in then. There is a very nice but faint grapiness (not nearly as extreme as in a Koelsch). Hops give a nice and not overpower bitterness on the finish.

M- Medium body with a medium carbonation level.

D- Every aspect of this beer just makes you want to drink it. Very drinkable.

Overall, my favorite German pilsner so far. Definitely worth trying.

A: Clear golden color, some bubbles. A large white uneven headmsets into decent lacings after a while.

S: Grainy mildly sweet malts, kind ofmbready. Bitter hops. Some nettles and freshly cut grass as well. Kind of mild smell though.

T: Bitter dry hops, a bit overdominant over the malt.

M: Aftertaste is short and bitter. Body is crisp medium while carbonation is strong.

O: A mild German Pilsener, I prefer hoppier/more bitter ones.
