Golden and highly carbonated, maybe due to the can. Carbonation gives way to a decent foamy head that fades quickly, leaving a hazy film on top. Little lacing.
Sharp hop on the tongue upfront combined with a bit of carbonation in the mix. Mouthfeel is hoppy, not complex, yet nicely balanced and dry. Finishes tart and slightly bitter making this pretty good for the type. A good and fairly common pilsner that is worth trying.

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.

The beer has an aroma of grass, floral, a light bready malt.

The flavor follows of that bright green grass in the front, some floral hops, and a clean lager yeast. A bready malt in the middle.

A light and effervescent mouthfeel.

This is on par for the style.

A - The foam disappears a bit quick, but the color of the beer itself is like a beer should look.

S - It smells like fresh grains and it immediately brings me back to the beautiful hills of Germany.

T - The taste is strong especially for a lager, whom are known to be watery which is absolutely not the case with this beer.

M - It is thick and sticky on the tongue and leaves a pleasant and strong fresh aftertaste. It's so fresh that it feels like you just brushed your teeth.

O - I can't think of a lager beer that tops this one, it goes great with fries and schnitzel or pizza and even spaghetti's with red sauce. Plus it leaves no hangover when you drink a few more of this beer which is brewed according to the strict German purity laws. If you like lagers, Veltins is a must try!
