3.21/5 rDev -7.5%
On 28th Nov 13 I had a little Lager/Pilsner session: this 330ml green, rip-top bottle was my third one.
Pale golden in colour it showed bright, clean and clear: the snow white head even stayed and gave some lacing on my 'La Chouffe' tulip that I'd poured it into, very un-lager/pilsner like.
Both the nose and taste were leaning towards a sweet feel and grainy. The hop content gave it a crisp texture and added a bite to the brew.
I thought this was OK, a lot better than the two different Beck's offerings I'd had before anyway.

3.29/5 rDev -5.2%
12 oz. bottle purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area, unknown bottling data and poured into my FFF glass, drank 11/16/13 over a half-hour.
A: 2/3 - straw yellow coloration, solid clarity (can read or see through), received with little head with very subtle glass lacing; moderate carbonation; no alcohol legs
S: 7/12 - classic German pilsner flavors...lemon zest, spice, lager yeast...there it is and not much else that I can detect
T: 14/20 - classic German pils flavors hit - mild noble hop aroma, lager yeast; settles into a moderate biscuity/bready character in the middle of the mouth and resolves quickly with little-to-no aftertatste, no alcohol detectable in the taste
M: 3/5 - light-bodied and high carbonation, little alcohol presence in the body
O: 6/10 - bleh, bland German pilsner; don't see the appeal
TOTAL = 32/50
