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.

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.
