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.

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.
