Dark gold in color, nose is vegetal husk, cracked grains, minerals and dry cereal. Taste is the dry malty sweetness of water crackers and unleavened bread. Chewy minerals and soft noble hops in the finish. Metallic tasting from the can, but still a clean and bitter European style pilsner.

Poured into a Ayinger pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and ring around the glass, no lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt, faintly spicy, but hints of sourness; grainy and mild. Starts out with biscuit malt, grassy hops and hints of apple juice, but quickly tapers off to a bland faint sweet malt. Light bodied. Obviously brewed as a cheap, satisfactory pilsner, a half step above an adjunct ale and delivers to expectations. Drinkable but forgettable, average in all respects. Brewed by Wolters, and fortunately in a can so at least it's not skunky like their beers in green bottles.

2.88/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

App: White head, clear coors body, minimal head retention and no lacing.

Nose: Wheat, malt, crisp malt, rice vinegar, banana.

Taste: Nice mouthfeel, clean, refreshing, a little watery, saltine crackers.

Notes: A fairly decent pilsner for a great price. If you have to drink something like Coors Light and can have this instead, give this a try.

Poured from a 500ml can. Appearance is a clear gold with a yellowish hue. White head forms but doesn't retain much. The nose features bready malts, notes of light caramel, bread crust, and corn. The flavor is pretty lacking with a bitter finish. The toasty bread comes through with a musty tinge. There is a hint of hops at the finish. Mouthfeel is light with moderate level of carbonation. Overall, an uninspired Pilsener which is lacking in flavor.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: The same gold shade seen in most macrobrews. Good head that dissipates quickly, thin lacing.

Smell: Faint grainy grassy aroma. Basically, it smells like beer.

Taste: Grainy and grassy. Basically, it tastes like beer.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with almost no aftertaste.

The Verdict: Average. If you're looking for an affordable alternative to Heineken or Budweiser, this German beer would be a good choice. Drinkable, but forgettable.

500ml can, drank outta the can

can't comment on the look as it's in the can. smell is corny with some stanky hops and a metallic tinge. taste is light wheat, dusty grain. tastes like a metal table dusted with powdered sugar. 

ok lager with a sweet, nasty metallic zip to it.

Peter’s Brand has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, bubbly, deep golden appearance, and a heavy lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is of pungent, buttery, malt, and the flavor is of sweet, biscuit-like malt, grassy hops, and subdued sugars. Bitterness is appropriate. Mouthfeel is tending towards light and watery, and Peter’s Brand finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and enjoyable. For a private label brand (and, for beer in general) this is a good one.

This beer's color is the color of your piss after a long night of drinking. IT looks a little dark for a pilsner. The smell isn't too pungent which is a bad thing. THe taste is slightly atringent but it follows with that European crispness. The mouth is a little heavy. but overall it's a decent beer. I'd say this is my beach beer.
