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.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Rastal 0.2l pokal glass. Batch 5034.
Appearance: Clear gold color with a persistent thick white head. Lots of persistent thick strands of lacing.
Smell: Floral with some mild fruit like notes with a deep inhale. Not strongly aromatic.
Taste: Quick hit of crisp bitterness up front, then a cracker-like malt middle, and then a lingering noble hop finish. A hop forward pilsener.
Mouthfeel: Sticky and maybe a little oily on the teeth with good carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall / Drinkability: A full flavor pilsener, but perhaps just above average although high marks for appearance. However, it is a very drinkable beer. Like many German pilseners I've had, I feel this one is engineered to be drank in high quantities and go with a wide range of food, which in this case was pizza. I could easily have another one as everything together works well and it compliments/accents food, but doesn't get in the way.
