11.2oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $1.29. I know for a fact I drank at least one bottle of this while studying in Germany almost exactly 15 years ago (there’s photographic proof, though the label was slightly different and the bottle was a stubbie). According to the label, this was bottled on June 6th of this year, which creates the (admittedly spurious) impression that bottling this beer was how Germany chose to recognize the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

Poured into a Jever Pilsener glass, this was a slightly chill-hazed gold color and featured an appropriate-sized sudsy, bone-white head. Said head began dropping after a couple of minutes, but left sheets of lace on the sides of the glass.

Grassy, herbal hops and earthy yet slightly sweet malts are what the nose picked up. Yep, it smells like an authentic German pilsener.

Slightly bitter and herbal tasting, with a mineralish aspect that stood out just a tad. Partway through there was a light, tart fruity flavor that complemented the dryness. Things finished off with a dry, clean zap.

Light bodied, with a prickly, slightly dry mouthfeel.

This makes me want to go out and find a Jever to compare it with. I think this has a slightly more mineralish flavor than that brand (my favorite authentic pils), but is fairly similar. For $1.29 a bottle, I’d definitely have this again.

Found it in Greece.

A- Excellent creamy white foam. Less bubbles then expected from pilsener. Yellow color.
S- Pale malt with some citrus notes.
T/M- Very decent pilsener. Lots of malts. A bit peppery taste with right amount of bitter aftertaste.

O- Real German pure beer.

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.
