Licher? I don't even know her! Hardee-har-har.

A - Vibrant gold brew with a nice big fluffy cap of crackling white foam. Lots of champagne bubbles stream towards the long lasting cap, and as the head does eventually recede it leaves behind big swaths of sticky and crusty lace.

S - Fresh salt sea air, salted wheat crackers, and a whiff of white pepper. Maybe a hint of spicy hops in there somewhere.

T - Fresh saltine crackers with a tang of lemon spritz on the finish. Lively lemon pepper and salt make this brew really 'pop' as they say on those crappy fashion TV shows my wife watches.

M - Light, crisp, effervescent with carbonation; this one is amazingly refreshing and thirst quenching with a long lasting, but far from distracting finish.

D - This G-pils screams session! I wanna pour two of these in my giant Oktoberfest mug and grill up some brats while enjoying this fine spring weather!

Appearance: A light golden color, with a white head.
Aroma: A non-distinct beer smell.
Flavor: A light malt flavor with a lightly carbonated , harsh finish.
Overall: This a “run of the mill” commercialized brew. The harsh finish is the “deal breaker”.

All I can say is this beer goes down as smoothly as any beer I've ever tasted. W/O a doubt a pleasure to drink. Absolutely no bite to it and the taste is so smooth and refreshing I can't really put it into words. Drink one of these beers and enjoy one of the better tasting beers on this planet.

Ahhh yes... Licher, my second all time favorite Pilsner in the world.... behind Eichbaum.
I cant even count how many cases of this beer I have drank over a 4 year time period in Bad Naughiem.
Found only in the Giessen Germany area, this Pilsner will go down smooth one right after the next... all night long.
At first, it might not seem carbonated enough, but half way through the first bottle, you soon realize it has a nice clean, crisp, refreshing taste, and the carbonation fits it perfectly. This is a typical German Pilsner, with a slight twist of a grassy type hop flavor that you will not taste anywhere else in the world. Best served at room temps or cool at around 45 degrees. HIGHLY DRINKABLE and a must try for anyone visiting Germany. and as I've said so many times at the local bierhaus, Ich liebe Licher Bier!!!

500ml ordinary glass on tap @ Frankfurt airport.

A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a huge bubbled aired white head. Medium retention and very few lacings left

S: Traditional sweet grains smell with notes of citrus and flowery hops

T: As the nose, upfront is sweet and mainly composed of sweet malts. Metallic. Cardboard in the taste is a bit annoying and overwhelming. Hops are citrus and flowery

M: Very light and watery body. Good carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild bitter hoppy aftertaste

O: Medium drinkability. A bit annoying cardboard taste. Not a big German specimens

Labelled on the tap in Torino Italy as a lager, there were aromas of bread, pilsener, some lemon like citrus and a mild bread and malt sweetness with very faint floral, grass hops, the flavors were of pilsner malt and bread. Had a nice crispness with a touch of citrus, there was some hop bitterness at the finish, and a touch of metallic sulfur bitterness in the background. After the finish, the mouth feel was light, this beer had a nice nose and flavor, easily drinkable.
