Very good german pilsner. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark straw color with a foamy inch head that remains for a little bit before dissipating to just a bubbly layer. Some lacing left along the glass as you finish. Smell is malty with some direct yeast/bread notes. Very smooth and easy to drink. If you're in the mood for a german pils, hard to go wrong with this one - perfect amount of carbonation and nice dry finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml bottle purchased from the Copenhagen convenience store down the street from the hotel I'm staying at.

Served fairly cold into whatever glass I could find.

Appearance - clear golden color, a little on the pale side with a nice finger of head that subsides but leaves a nice soapy residue. Good level of carbonation. Good lacing streaks all around the side of the glass.

Smell - nice floral and grassy aroma. Some mild grainy notes, but everything works in cohesion brilliantly.

Taste - similar to the aroma, clean and crisp with mild grassy and grainy flavours. Very tasty and well constructed pils. Nice bitter taste throughout.

Mouthfeel - clean and crisp and nice dry finish. Moderate level of carbonation.

Overall - really fine German pils. These guys can't do anything wrong.
