This is a sentimental favorite. When I was about ten my family in Germany introduced me to this. It was the first time I discovered what a good beer could be. OK, now on to my unpartial review:

Poured out a golden yellow color, thin filmy white head. NOse had a strong pilsner malty note, with some spicy hops backing it up. The taste was a bit heavy, but pleanest. Bready, tiny bit of hops, very full flavored and refreshing. Has a medium carbonaiton mouthfeel, appropriate for the style. Finishes smooth and refreshing with a slightly bitter bite at the end.

A delicious pilsner with a classic balance between hops, malt and yeast. If you are a fan of exceptionally hoppy beer, then this may seem to fall short but I think this is a perfect example of why German beers in many ways still set the standard. The hops are bitter but not over-the-top aromatic and provide a fine counter-balance to its essentially malty character. An excellent value at $11.00 per 12 at Binny's in Chicago.

Another German pilsener.
Pours a clear golden color, topped with familiar two fingers of white head.
The mild grainy and malty aroma are wasily picked up.
The taste is light, slight sweetness at first, followed by somewhat grainy body, little bitterness. Finishes with a nice bittery and refreshing feel.
Another fine German pilsener, that is.
